Spend one evening in this hotel. Staff were not particularly helpful and did not explain any of the facilities at the hotel. The room itself was large, it had 2 single beds it appeared quite glamorous in the dark but by the light of day was not so. It smelled very strongly of smoke which was very unpleasant. Only good...

The hotel has not lived up to my expectations. It aims to be high class but lacks style and service of better hotels. That's no problem, since this isn't a 5 star hotel. The problem is, that the hotel doesn't even deliver what it claims to have. Wifi is close to not existed, no-smoking rooms smell like smoke all day...

Lights come from everywhere in the room you can't sleep. Furniture not clean. Bathroom floor and walls were ditrty. Bathroom has a super bad smell. Reception ppl attitude was the worst. they ask for deposit before even welcome you. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here for one night and actually enjoyed it. I got a good deal as I booked early and got a great room. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining soo much in other reviews. I arrived late and yes the night reception guy wasn't the happiest person in the world. After reading previous reviews I was trying to...

The last few times we have been to Abu Dhabi, we have stayed here. And we like it. The price to quality ratio is excellent at this place. There is a restaurant and a swimming pool on the top floor. The staff are friendly. There is valet parking. It has free wifi. And it is in a good location. The...

The hotel check-in and check-out was very efficient. The staff were neither unfriendly nor overly friendly (as is often the case in the UAE!). It's easy to find, easy to unload/load the car right in front of the hotel entrance, and the valet parking is quick - I'd rate it above the nearby and slightly pricier Ramada in this regard,...

I stayed twice in this hotel as I had to do my after operation checks at a hospital in Abu Dhabi. Each was for a day. it was convenient as it is close to the hospital I am visiting (10 min drive) and the rate was good for us. The fact that it is located in the city center it...

The Room was spacious, modern and the hotel is in good area of Al Salam Street. Nice Views of the Croniche Area and a Croniche Beach can be seen from the Hotel. Drawbacks : Slow Wifi, Non Working LAN Connection Checkin and Checkout was smooth but the Hotel Lift is too small.
