Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robpet WIFI, Irons and poor room, poor service
I have stayed here many times in the past but this will be my last, the hotel was very poor I checked out early and moved to another hotel.
The internet was very poor low speed and kept cutting out it was impossible to work with, I told reception and they sent a man around to fix it but the problem persisted for 3 days.
First night I was promised an iron would be brought to my room I chased it for 2 hours and they kept promising me but no iron was ever brought as they said they had run out and for two days I had to wear crinkled clothes for meetings. How much can it cost to put and iron in every room honestly!
Two days I travelled and needed taxis to the airport early in the morning so I asked the hotel to book me them and neither turned up because they didn’t bother to book them! I ended up taking a private limousine service at twice the price so I could make my flights.
Room was grubby and the shower was held together by sealant tape and didn't work well just ran down the wall, the wardrobe propped up with wooded wedges to stop it tipping up and the carpet was dirty.
I feel sorry for the good staff like Bakr and Mohamed (duty managers) who do so much to make you feel welcome but the hotel is let down by poor investment up keep and training – like many reviews it’s a good location and thats why I stayed in it. It's a shame i enjoyed staying at the hotel in the past.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josh466 very enjoyable
I had made a booking at this hotel, because I knew the room was going to be of at least a standard American quality. I found my stay at this hotel very enjoyable - it is a quick walk to the Tram, and with the tram, is very close to both of Dubai's large malls. The hotel was extremely easy to get to from the airport, as it is the same tram line that goes from the airport to this hotel. This hotel was great for my stay, and allowed me to check in early and store my luggage after check out until my flight later on in the evening!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Location, comfortable rooms
The Hotel location is optimal for somebody who travels along the Shaikh Zaid Road between old and new Dubai.
Room was clean and very comfortable for my business stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kmuwlla Excellent Hotel
The generous employees of Holliday Inn Express Safa Park completed my perfect vacation with my family in Dubai. The room, lobby and restaurant were clean and comfortable. The location is very strategic and convenient. I highly recommend the hotel whether travelling for business or leisure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WorldTraveller1 Close to Business Bay Station of the Dubai Metro
All staff are nice and only 5-7 mins walk to Dubai Metro. Dubai Mall & Burj Khalifa are just 1 stop away. The transportation is convenient enough and not too far by taxi from Burj Al Alab, Jumeirah Beach and Jumeirah Mosque.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jawad cozy & convenient overall setup
Location of this Hotel in Dubai is convenient; it is in the middle between old & new Dubai which makes circulation around Dubai easy; yet it lies in a quiet area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AMNYC Perfect location
We chose this hotel due to its proximity to the start of the Dubai Marathon - it worked out perfectly! The room was comfortable and good-sized, the bathroom new and clean. Lighting was good in all areas. We really liked the breakfast choices, though its best to go earlier in the morning as it does get pretty busy towards the end of the buffet time and items aren't always readily replenished. The staff were friendly and helpful - especially at check-in. If you are a Priority Club member you can ask for a later check-out time (2:00 p.m.). Excellent proximity to the Metro (8 minute walk to the Business Bay station) and only one stop from the Dubai Mall. Also nice to be by Safa Park - which is a great place to see local families enjoy the evenings/weekends.

Quite simply the rooms are incredibly noisy. You can hear every conversation, whisper and footstep in the hallway, which is extremely disturbing (and I don't say this as a light sleeper or a serial complainer). My room could have been unusual, I suppose, but I doubt it; the entire hotel is a pre-packaged block where there's no room for individual room specifications.

Once again, this has been a great stay, I would like to commend the staff a Safa Park who went out of their way helping us to charge our GPS device after Dollar rent a car gave us a faulty car with a burned fuse. The care they show in trying to solve all our issues is greatly appreciated.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Amb88 Average Hotel with Poor Service
Have been an ambassador with the Intercontinental Group of Hotel and tried staying in several Holiday inn /express and Intercontinental hotels. This stay had been the worst experience at Holiday Inn Safa Park. Was not acknowledged by staff throughout the stay and had to approach unfriendly staff at reception for assistance. Room key was deactivated access to the room daily to our horror even though the key card was kept nowhere near any electronic devices. Wifi access was unstable even with free wifi facility throughout hotel. Highlighted issues to staff but staff was not empathetic and insistent on their view that nothing was wrong without even lending a listening ear. Limited breakfast variety available but no complains since expectations of the hotel is of a 2 star hotel by the end of the second day of my stay. Only plus point is cheap room rate inclusive of breakfast and wifi in rooms. Would certainly not return or recommend hotel to anyone. Surprised that this is under Holiday Inn Group of Hotels branding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hogo Very efficient and cordial staff
Overall the hotel stands well above other competitors in the same price category. The fact that sits back form the road is very helpful. The garage service is comfortable if cars are not too large. The lobby is very clean and comfortable. We changed rooms cause some had not been completed in renovation to new TV. Internet service is very good.

New and conveniently located. reception staff are very nice and helpful. One of my collegues (Dr. Sugahara) had a problem of wire connection on 12/06 and had his room re-assigned. His laptop was not originally fit for Wi-Fi and he tried to connect through a cable. Except for this problem, everything is fine. Thanks.

Almost everything was OK, however one evening there were noises (loud noises) coming from some facilities maintenance, that was at 8 pm, it is supposed for the people to let them rest. My family and me were very upset because of the time YOU choose to make your maintenance tasks. I don't like to stay in a hotel were someone is hitting the wall in the room close to mine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Christian Unfortunately a bad experience due to excess levels of noise....
I visited this hotel for 2 days in late October 2012 for some rest and meet friends.
Unfortunately, at 8:00am we were woken up by the sound of a power drill as they were undertaking essential maintenance. Although, the matter was brought to the management's attention and I was re-assured that the noise will not be on-going thigns didn't get better.
The noise continued the whole day despite reassurances that it will be finished by mid-day so we can at least enjoy a peaceful afternoon. I had the "luck" of being distrubed even on a much needed afternoon nap.
No real recognition for Gold members and certainly we didn't feel that we were looked after.
Emailed several times customer services who responded very coldly with a typical corporate email and without any offer for even the slightest in kind compensation. Do not expect anything when dealing with customer services, really appalling and lacking customer focus.
The hotel is advertised as close to the beach and offering a complimentary shuttle service to the beach. However, it runs only once a day at 10am and returns at 2pm, no other options.
Last but not least, breakfast was really limited. All you get is toast, some juice, bakon, eggs and beans. If you would like some fresh fruits you might as well forget them....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hasan The BEST place to stay in while in Dubai
A great hotel run by a very efficient manager. Central location and very friendly service. The value for money cannot be compared to anywhere else. Rooms have just what you need and nothing less. Loved every minute of staying there. Will keep going back

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Babu Reasonable price for the property at this location
Coffee maker available but water to be bought. Supplies normally not recouped while room making, though supplied immediately on request.
Better to ensure availability of Non smoking rooms in advance, Thankfully, room was changed immediately, if not available, could have spent the night out.
Good facility of complimentary free shuttle every morning.
Though separate desk Identifying Priority Club exists, nothing special to offer nor dedicated person to attend.
