Good budget hotel, close to Burj Khalifa Sep 30, 2012
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Safa Park and was happy with what I received. I needed somewhere close to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall and was on a budget so this was perfect. It’s about a 10 minute walk from the Business Bay Metro station which goes right to the airport so the location is very good. The room was a little to be desired and there was an odd smell but it was clean and comfortable. It was just a big dated. To be fair, I booked it because it was one of the cheaper ones so I didn’t really expect too much.

The service was excellent. It took five minutes to check-in and when I asked for an ironing board to be brought up straight away, it was. As I mentioned the room was clean and comfortable, as was the bed. Old furniture and the TV looked like it was on its last legs. There was a fridge in the room but they don’t stock items as a minibar but the great thing is that at reception there is a very, very small 24hour shop for drinks, etc. There was quite a good selection of food at breakfast although not much in the range of a cooked breakfast, however, it was more than sufficient and it was tasty too.

If on a budget and I needed to be near the Burj Khalifa again, I would stay again although if I was planning on being in other parts of the city I would probably try somewhere else. All in all, it was an adequate hotel and I would be happy to stay again.

Affordable in Dubai Apr 14, 2011
I booked this hotel while I was in Vancouver and really wasn't sure if it was going to be any good. It was rated farely well on tripadvisor considering it was on the cheaper side ($90 per night, considered cheap in dubai). My biggest concern was going to be location and if it was close to the sites that I wanted to see.

I was more than pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The breakfast, a cold breakfast was really good and very filling. They had a variety of fruits, croissants, cereals, bagels, juices, etc. We would sit there for a couple of hours just talking and eating.

The location is perfect in the sense that it is the closest you can get for this price, to Jumeirah. The metro was also very close by and Dubai mall is a 5 minute cab ride.

When you come out of the hotel you see Burj Khalifa in front of you it's fantastic!!

All in all I would say that this the hotel to stay at if you're looking for a reasonable price in dubai and a central location.

There's not much in walking distance but the cab ride is really cheap to any sort of entertainment or shopping.

Affordable along the Sheikh Zayed Road Dec 05, 2008
Usual Holiday Inn setup: comfortable clean rooms, with individual temperature control in the rooms, friendly staff. The hotel has a bar, which is a plus in these regions, where you can get international alcohol. Selection is slim but varied.

It's really hard to comment on location, you have to take the taxi everywhere as with anything in Dubai. The difference is, some hotel has restaurants within walking distance. The restaurant staff is friendly but the menu is slim. The buffet is worthwhile for 55.00AED. Small selection but you can feast and stuff yourself. The front staff is friendly but not very knowlegeable about anything around Dubai. I'll give it a few more months since the hotel is fairly new.

Overall, a good affordable hotel in Dubai. It is central to everything meaning everything is within a taxi reach for about 20-30 AED including to the airport (depending on traffic) which is not bad.
