Great stay. Recommend this hotel.”

I would like to recommend this hotel to anybody coming in as a tourist looking for an overall good experience. Location is great - 5 min walk to Burjuman metro station making everything in Dubai easily accessible. Breakfast was fantastic. Good quality, great range, Continental, Arabic, Indian, etc. Service perfect. Our room (executive ) was large and comfy and cleaned every day well. Reception staff were all very helpful and professional, especially Mr Lokesh who tried very hard to ensure we were taken good care of and made to feel very much at home and well looked after! Excellent genuine customer service with a smile! We were out everyday seeing the sights so didn't spend anytime checking out the facilities but the pool looked good and the 2 bars/restaurants looked fine. We have a 6 year old child so didn't use these but I'm sure they would be fine for others!

excellent location”

Very walkable to Al Seef area, Bur Juman, metro, restaurants and a huge supermarket. The open air nightclub on the roof is OK for a drink. Negatives: Check-in took a bit of time (only one person handling everyone), no staff was on hand to open the steam room, the room cleaner's body odor permeated the room for an hour after he left, the massage has only female workers but only gives massages to men......but Positives: the bed and pillows were comfortable, sheets and towels clean, workers were friendly and professional, bathtub was good for a soak, good breakfast, and above all an excellent location.

Holiday Inn Bur Dubai is the Best”

We love their service because when we our room was taken, they upgraded us to a suite room. Location is perfect just beside the Burjuman Mall which is very important because all we need was there. Shopping is very easy. Our room is very clean and very spacious. We will go back there if we are in Dubai.

Close to Dubai Mall, Burj and all the attractions

This hotel is close to all the major attractions in Dubai - only 15 minute to Dubai Mall, Burj Al Khalifa and Jumeria. The service was excellent and the hotel rooms were small but clean. The staff was very helpful and the check in and check out process was easy. Would highly recommend as a budget hotel close to all the major attractions in Dubai.

good location, big rooms

Hotel is conveniently located next to Burjuman shopping center and the metro station which allows easy access to the rest of Dubai via public transport. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and a large bathroom. The amenities are more than adequate- the hotel has a rooftop pool and gym, and spa center.

The truth is that there is no supermarket nearby that works 24 hours (this does not apply to the hotel) I liked the hotel very much! I advise everyone and you will only be happy.

Nice weekend”

Good breakfast buffet, close to Burjuman metro, fast maintenance repairs

My stay was for a weekend during Eid, which was very busy and many hotels were already booked. The room was a nice size, including a couch and coffee table near the window. The dinner and breakfast buffets had a nice selection and was good. Since I had to wait nearly an hour to get into my room, they included free breakfast. I had a few minor issues such as the lock on the door did not work, the refrigerator wouldn't open and the hairdryer stopped working. However, the maintenance staff arrived quickly, within 5 minutes, to solve those issues. The pool was a bit small and looks like it could use a renovation and include more seating as the weather isn't so hot and guests like to spend some time by the pool. The area where the hotel is located is not ideal as it's in a bit run-down area and there isn't a whole lot around, and the Burjuman center was closed due to construction. The nice thing is across the street is the Burjuman metro station that can take you to different parts of the city such as the major malls. Taxis are readily available at the hotel. I've lived in the UAE for over four years and I still do not understand why ATMs aren't available in most hotels here. It would be nice to allow guests access to cash at all times of the day or night.

Room space, location and food was great

Everything was good. It was a pleasant experience.But I must say that the hotel staff of the exercising area(swimming pool)was very rude and must be replaced immediately.The staff has problem with the water splashes which is very obvious in the process.The steam/sauna is just a showpiece. Even during the 6 night stay in the hotel, we did not get a single opportunity to use it.

They called her at 2 AM in the morning and asked for the passport, She was sleeping at that time and they sent a person to her to collect the passport. I'll not recommend to anyone.
