Nina Travels Reviewed to Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha Hotel
Searching for a hotel in Dubai can be a challenge. Not because there would be lack of hotels in Dubai, but finding the right balance between your budget and wishes can be pretty time consuming.
Hotel Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha
Location of Dubai hotel should be your number one priority. Dubai is a huge metropolis and if you don’t have your own transport, the fastest, easiest and also cheapest way is to explore Dubai with a metro. Even though we did have a rented car in Dubai and for the rest of our UAE travel, we wanted to have a hotel close to a metro station and that is why hotel Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha was perfect for us.

Location of hotel Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha
Hotel Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha is not in the city center, but because a metro station is just few steps away, that does not represent any disadvantage. Taking the metro, you only need about 20 minutes to reach the famous building Burj Khalifa and the world’s biggest shopping mall Dubai Mall. It does not really matter where you are headed as taking the metro is very convenient. Explore Deira, the old part of Dubai, take a look at the Ski track in Emirates Mall or take a walk along Marina.

Rooftop terrace (Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha)
Employees in Holiday Inn Dubai Al Barsha like to say their hotel does have four stars, but staying here, you will feel like being in a 5 star hotel. Five stars hotels can welcome you with lavishing lobby, marble and shiny chandeliers, but let be honest… the only thing that truly counts are its people, who are harder to get than all luxurious decoration and design, which has no meaning if you don’t really feel welcome.
