Most convenient location with 24/7 airport transfers every 30 minutes. Rooms spacious and well equipped, but perhaps a little dated. Not everything worked perfectly but help was provided quickly. The carpeted hallways are perhaps a bit heavy for the suitcase wheels and probably the cause for need of fresheners that we could smell in the hallways, lobby is great, breakfast definitely nice enough to please most people without being too extravagant. Staff all very friendly but your tour desk a little light on the ground (no brochures and info, just a lady who may or may not be there occasionally). We enjoyed our 2 nights!

While my overall stay at the hotel had positive aspects, I'd like to provide feedback on the receptionist's service, which unfortunately fell short of expectations. The receptionist's demeanour appeared disinterested during check-in, leading to an incorrect financial deduction and an overall unprofessional interaction. Moreover, when I encountered an issue with my room's bathroom and requested a room change, the receptionist did not offer assistance in moving my luggage to the new room. Instead, I was asked to relocate my belongings myself and return the room key to the reception. Despite the inconvenience, there was no effort to provide an alternative room with a better view. In my opinion, a hotel's hospitality and service standards play a crucial role in guest satisfaction. Regrettably, based on this experience, I would hesitate to recommend this hotel. I hope this feedback is taken constructively to uphold the high standards that I expect from Holiday Inn Express Dubai Airport.
