Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RichardA99 Convenient Location
Although the bed was comfortable, the room clean, and the internet worked well, probably the best feature of this hotel for me is its central location and convenient access to the Metro. The Business Bay Metro Station is a 5 to 10 minute walk away (depending on how fast you walk). From there, it is easy to take the Metro to just about any place you would want to go that is close to a metro stop. My appointments generally were limited to the area between the World Trade Center and Mall of the Emirates, so the Business Bay Metro stop was a great starting point.
Word of warning about the naming of the metro stops. The stop name does not always relate to closeness to a particular location. Some of my appointments were at the Dubai International Financial Center. The first day I made the mistake of getting off the Metro at the Financial Center stop. The most convenient stop for the Financial Center is Emirates Tower. Only about a 2-3 minute walk to DIFC from there.

Excellent location, staff very friendly, very quiet, you have all the basics. One only problem, no iron in the room, better ask for it and do all the iron job at once. Great breakfast even though no white cheese and not enough fruit. I enjoyed anyway my stay being a person who has frequented all kinf of hotels. Ah, the desk was fantastic having comfortable chair and all the outlets on the desk.

As a HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS property this is good value for money, especially with the free breakfast. Seasonal prices can be suprisingly good. Checkin was fast and efficient and staff very helpful and friendly. Room is clean and bright, and the recently upgraded LED TV's are nice. Comfortable bed and room, with complimentary water and newspaper for PC members was appreciated. Nice location for Safa Park access. 15 minutes to Trade Center.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jcfrach Worth every penny
We stayed in this hotel for almost a week and have booked 2 rooms. Our flight arrived in Dubai a bit early and went to the hotel straight away. The hotel staff was able to accommodate us and was able to check in around 9am, later around noon time, we got the other room. The following day, after the room (which has a connecting room) became vacant, they immediately gave it to us since this was our initial preference as we have kids with us. The breakfast which comes in complimentary was also good. The hotel also provides shuttle service to Dubai Mall and Jumeirah beach which is a major plus.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Dubai and do not want to waste a fortune on hotel bills, as I've said it's worth every penny. Metro is near and taxi's are always available.
Special thanks to Linda and Zeeshan at the frontdesk for being always ready to assist us on all of our request. The hotel security was also very courteous.
On a final note, priority reward members are indeed given priority so make sure to present your card during check-in.

Overall, it is still a good place to stay in Dubai You can probably get a lower star hotel at the same price with a better location. But if you look at most comments on value hotels in good locations, there's always a compromise I will recommend this property to all…see you on my next visit many thanks for Mr. Sheta for his professional way concerning the issue of my flight booking and so sorry if i give you hard time during the check in

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrJ52 Best Holiday Inn in Dubia.
This was my best stay using my rewards points since joining the club. The reservation, check-in, check-out, food, and room was excellent. I will stay at this Holiday Inn again in the near future.
