A stylish, contemporary, chic 4-star hotel, located in the heart of Dubai with splendid views of the Burj-Al-Arab and the iconic skyline of Dubai with Burj-Khalifa. Located in heart of Dubai, just next to the Mall of Emirates – one of the most popular luxury shopping mall in Dubai. As Summer Holidays are on, it is the perfect time to go for a Family staycation at this stylish and cosmopolitan hotel. I will be reviewing about my Perfect Comfort Stay at Holiday Inn Al Barsha Dubai in this article.
Perfect Comfort Stay at Holiday Inn Al Barsha Dubai
Holiday Inn Al Barsha’s lavish and welcoming Reception lobby welcomes you with warmth and great smiles. After a smooth and fast Check-in, when you move ahead this Reception lobby opens into a Grand Atrium which resembles a Cruise Atrium. This cruise shaped Atrium is impressive and is adorned with centrally located waterfalls, wooden piano, colorful sleek couches and all surrounded by Theme Bars and chic-Restaurants. Two Glass Elevators in the Atrium takes you to higher floors of this hotel.
Even the common areas, lobbies in front of Elevators have stylish decor with seating Couches.
ROOMS of Holiday Inn Al Barsha Dubai – This hotel has 309 rooms including 54 suites all spread over 6 floors with a wide range of sizes and varieties like One Bedroom Suite Room, Deluxe Twin Room, Deluxe Club Lounge Room, Two Bedroom Suite Room, Executive Rooms, etc. As this hotel offers a variety of rooms, it accommodates all family sizes and requirements. This hotel also offers a Bridal suite for weddings and celebrations. Duty Manager Mr. Erwin took me to a Hotel visit Tour.
As I booked my stay during ongoing Family Staycation offer, I chose One Bedroom suite to accommodate 4 members in my family. Our suite was very big with two rooms separated by doors for full privacy. Kids got their specially decorated beds with board games and activity books. Both rooms are spacious and have cozy and comfortable beds. The suite room has many seating options with comfortable couches, sofas and office chair spread around. Also, the room is fully equipped with Mini Bar, Tea Making Facility, Complimentary Bottled Water, Iron Board, Safe, Electric Adapter, Flat TV panel in both rooms, Children Activity stuff, Carpeted area and Dressing Area.
I entered into a specially decorated suite room under Staycation offer with welcome cookies and fresh fruits. My kids loved their beds and activity books. The room size is big enough with having various spaces to organize luggage and items, I spread out my stuff more comfortably, especially when traveling with children.
Also, the room’s window is big and there was proper sunlight in the room. Some rooms are facing Burj Al Arab – front facing rooms. I chose a bigger Suite room without the views of Burj Al Arab.
BATHROOM – The bathroom is big, comfortable, modern and fully equipped with Herbal toiletries, Dental and Shaving kits, Hair Dryer, Cotton Slippers, Bath Robes, and Towels. There is also a separate toilet/bidet in a suite room and therefore it is very convenient to freshen up in the morning when 4 people are staying in a suite room.
BREAKFAST OPTIONS – Food is the center of attraction of this hotel, as the hotel has many prestigious award-winning restaurants, which is reflected in their lavish buffet Breakfast spread. I enjoyed a delicious Breakfast options from Continental, Asian and Indian spread.
