Very Good 8.0
It was good stay and very near to the airport. Free airport shuttle is very useful every 30mins. I was happy to have a late check out without any additional fee. They have also a decent Free continental breakfast The only downside is the housekeeping services is a bit slow. Overall everything is good.

first time at Dubai airport
We "stayed" at the hotel for around 10 hours - after cruise. We dropped our bags at the hotel and went to explore Dubai and came later on to use shuttle bus to get to the airport. What we were surprised with was that we were dropped off at the Arrival part of the airport. ??? Is it customary? Is there no way for the shuttle bus to take passengers to the Departure, which is on the second floor of the airport? It was our first visit to Dubai airport and was very confusing.

It is good but tv, we are not expecting that it cannot connect to the phone and no other channels but only for arabic channels.

Poor 2.0
Very bad service!
I had to wait for almost 1 hour for the shuttle to arrive at the airport at around 2am! I had also to endure a long checkin process before getting to the barebones room! Very bad service!

Nice hotel close to Dubai airport
I needed to stay close to the airport and it was really an ideal place. Nice bed, clean room, good breakfast and have airport shuttle. Couldn't ask for more.

I highly recommend Holiday Inn Express, Dubai
The airport shuttle driver was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean. The buffet breakfast was a full buffet, not just a few pastries. Well done Holiday Inn Express! The only issue I faced was that the electronic key quit working so I had to go to the desk to get it reconfigured. Not a big deal really. Though right beside DXB, the building is so well soundproofed, I didn't notice any noise from the airport. I would definitely recommend Holiday Inn Express Dubai Airport. I would gladly stay at this hotel again.
GERRY, ie2 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
I like this hotel, it is no nonsense, serves ok food (all bufet), has transport to the airport every 30 mins and transport to the city/beach. Good value for money. One should not expect the typical Arabian luxury, but for an European traveler, this is perfectly ok. I will come back. Last time I had some problems with wifi which was unstable.
