A perfect stay in Abu Dhabi! Location is outstanding, 10 min by walking to the Corniche and close to Marina mall and all restaurants.
The reception manager Afzal was amazing. Very caring and helpful! Our PCR were not the the reception as the NMC promised us yesterday. He took it a step further, and emailed them abd got the tests for us and sent them to me directly. Thanks a million for having such a great person at ORYX.
I would stay again and again at Oryx.

Breakfast not great but all the restaurants are v close so it doesnt matter.
Rooms are very spacious.
Room service are slow in service, rooms were never clean on time
If you want water at night you never get it😉 you can buy your own.

Thank you Oryx for a great s

The hotel is in a good location close to the Corniche with lots of taxis close by to travel further afield. There are plenty of restaurants nearby serving a variety of cuisines which are reasonably priced. Additionally there is a COOP supermarket at the end of the road and a Starbucks in the opposite direction. Travel time from the airport is around 30 minutes and costs approx AED80. On your way back to the airport don’t arrange this through the hotel as they want double the cost of a taxi. Both the room and bathroom are large, with a fridge in the room and plenty of storage. The rooms are tired but this is reflective in the price.

The two week stay in Oryx in July 2020 for business trip was a comfortable one they had maintained all applicable precautions during delivering food or house keeping activities within the room .The furniture modules are modeled around a lounge theme and some may find it slightly difficult to get an exact chair table alignment for long hours on a laptop. But the location is very convenient with multiple convenience stores around the ground floor and eating options close by. The area is mostly active late night also , though one may find continuous construction activity in the vicinity.

Good hotel with friendly staff. Needs more electric sockets in the rooms and air conditioning is not easy to control but the location is excellent and the staff are very helpful. It is near the public beach and restaurants and cafes so all in all a bargain.

It is located approx. 200-300 meters from the Corniche beach, near many bus stops. Great place to explore Abu Dhabi. It has about 15 floors, and there is a small outdoor swimming pool on the top floor.
The rooms are large with two huge armchairs and huge beds. To supply many kilometers from wall-to-wall windows. The bathroom is also large, with a hairdryer, shampoo and conditioner.
It is very well soundproofed: you can't even hear the noise of the construction outside. The air conditioner works great and quietly.
The staff is kind and helpful.There are several grocery stores and restaurants around the hotel.
An excellent value for money choice in otherwise quite expensive Abu Dhabi.

On my arrival to Abu Dhabi, I got a positive pcr test which means an immediate isolation. One can imagine that it might be quite a horrible experience especially when you're a first time visitor on vacation. Many thanks to all the staff at the hotel, and especially Eva, for the support and pieces of advice on what should I do next. The hotel management let me stay in the hotel instead of going to the governmental facility during my isolation period, and the staff would bring me food and anything I need right to my door. Great job in helping the tourist in distress!

I called for the rates for 17 night's spoke to Ms. Dalal from the reception she doesn't deserve to be at the reception. I ask if she can assist with the rates she clearly said no you can call tomorrow. I requested my booking is from tomorrow and need to finalize today, she replied its OK you can call tomorrow we can assist you tomorrow and no one is available. She raised her voice saying we also cant share our managers numbers as well.
I request to the management to groom their staff as in hospitality being patient is a part of their duty and should know how to answer. I will not recommend this property to every single person whom I know and I am a corporate traveller.

I really enjoyed my 4 night stay at the hotel, the property may look a bit old but for the price, the room size and location is fantastic.
I wanted hotel that was close the main attractions, I was literally 10 mins away from Emirates palace, and walking distance to the corniche beach. The concierge staff, Shorief and Anas were kind and friendly, its nice when the staff make effort to talk to you, I got to know them over 4 days through our brief conversations, they made me feel at home. Thank you
