The Dubai Holiday Inn Bur Dubai is situated near the Dubai Museum. It is pleasant 4-star Dubai hotel. Rooms are rather large, internet super fast and the staff are very friendly.
There is a cozy rooftop pool and café at Dubai Holiday Inn, which I appreciated. There are shops of all kinds within walking distance – or you can get an Uber or a Taxi to go to one of the nearby Dubai malls.
I can recommend this IHG hotel. Especially if you want to stay close to the airport, which is why I shifted from the Dubai Marina to this area.
