    Nice basic hotel


    Courteous and efficient check in. The room was decently furnished -- very comfortable bed, clean linen, and the bathroom was clean. Housekeeping was good. There is some noise from the disco and bar on the first floor, but it did not disturb me on the fourth floor. The staff are courteous and helpful.

    It is hard to get a taxi at the hotel doorstep, since it is on a side street. Have to go a block to the main road. I did not try the hotel's restaurants. There are several restaurants on the main (Al Rigga ) rd. Overall, I was happy with the value.

    Unique Quality: This is a reasonably priced basic hotel in a city with extravagant (and extravagantly priced) alternatives.

    Directions: Deira, off Al Rigga St. In between Al Rigga and Mrraqqabat

    Unique Quality: You can get an ice cold pint in the bar from the frendly bar staff. All the free popcorn you can eat.

    Our Dubai Base


    The four of us arrived and were dealt with very efficiently, they even managed to give my husband and me a double room with a door through to Claire and Gav's twin room.

    The hotel is located well and we found it a good base.

    The buffet breakfast was fantastic (and is now my 'bench mark' buffet breakfast) Fresh fruit, cereals and lots of yummy walm food - I fell in love with the potato cakes!

    We also liked the 'Aussie' bar and spent some time having a drink and a boogie in there!

    Unique Quality: Nice rooftop swimming pool.

    Very nice rooms - good size with nice large bathrooms.

    ** We bought a package deal for this stay - so I can't really identify how much the hotel cost**

    Directions: Downtown - Fairly close to the Clock Tower roundabout.

  • Very Male Decor for a Businesswoman


    Hotel was conveniently located and safe, providing transport and clearance from the airport. THe rooms were large clean and comfortable, but the decor and essentials were for male travellers only. As a female businessperson, it was too leathery and dark and Paco Rabanne. Essentials were available for men in shaving cream and foams, but the shampoo and conditioner were also scented like male colognes. FOod and service were good but not exceptional.

    Unique Quality: For men only

    Good hotel.. but closed for holidays...


    First thing you have to bear in mind when you book accomodation in Dubai: here all hotels have one star more than in the rest of the world. Meaning, if you are booking a 4 star hotel, expect 3 star quality.

    Once made my point I have to say the the Holiday Inn is a very nice hotel, quite nice and large rooms and very good location BUT in my opinion the staff was not as friendly as I expected and as it was Ramadan, they had decided to undertake repairs in the swimming pool, which, to be perfectly honest, is not very convenient for tourists.

    Once said that, the hotel is good quality and the breakfast buffet is very good.

    Not bad value for money but we stayed one night only because when you are inDubai the swimming pool is a plus, innit??

    Unique Quality: Nice rooms.
    Good breakfast.

Very clean and well staffed hotel. I only stayed one night, but my experience was a good one. The price was around $80 for a night.

The friendly service. From the doorman to housekeeping, everyone is there to make your stay pleasant comfortable.

good hotel, great location

by MrBill about near the dubai museum and nearby souks

A very authentic Arabian style hotel in a good location not far from the airport, downtown, Dubai Creek and some of the souks. Very tastefully done. Good staff and service. The pool area was a bit of a disappointment. Would be a good business hotel. The small breakfast room on the 7th floor is a nice touch for executive suite guests. A hosted happy hour in the evening complete with snacks is also a nice idea. Other than that there are several Indian, Chinese and Thai restaurants as well as the Sherlock Holmes Pub in the hotel and quite a famous Mexican restaurant on the street below. This hotel was quite a bit less expensive than some of Dubai's more famous hotels, but nice none the less.

Places to stay in Dubai

by RobertNieto1 about Holiday Inn / Sheraton Four Points

Holiday Inn Downtown, Sheraton Four Points, 2 great hotels I recommend to stay when in Dubai. Cheap(By Dubai Standards) clean, great locations downtown. The hotel staff at both hotels are top notch. I always stayed at either hotel while coming or going on R&R. They both have clubs inside where you can sit and get a drink. I liked the Holiday Inn's roof top pool, great place to sit and drink a cold beer and overlook the city. Another hotel I stayed a few times was the SeaView, now this is a 4 star hotel I had room 406 with a huge jet tub, you could put four people in there easy.

One place you absolutely must not miss is the gold souk.

Re: Re: one day only

by Siddha3th

Must-see recommendations:

The Dubai Creek (Al Seef Road) - full of hustle-bustle. Be sure to stop in at the Fatafeet Restaurant for some sheesha.

Souk Madinat Jumeirah (Jumeirah, next to Wild Wadi) - for an old-style shopping experience, a la Arabia. The Left Bank is enchanting in the evening.

5 Green Art Gallery (Oud Metha) - for a peek into Dubai's quirkier side. There's almost always an exhibition on in here.

Hope you guys make the most of your 1 day!

Re: Re: one day only
