I loved this place, but unfortunately, the last time I went there, the Guard was Extremely Rude as my wife was wearing turban and he said that she is not allowed to enter, even when we told him that we came many times before, he said that he didn't see us before like we are lying to him !!

After having brunch at the terrace, we went to the top of the building for a drink. The place is not so big, but there is enough room for a couple of tables. It offers a really nice view of the neighbouring. The attention is kind as usual in Abu Dhabi. There are many different drinks and beverages offered.

It was bit cold but warmth of the place kept me there for long. I was struck by the amazing view and the setting of the place. It's ideal for the young generation, work meetings or to celebrate. Service can be better though but I would love to go back again because it's probably the best rooftop bar I've been... More

I've been here 10+ times and the view never fails to impress. Go at sunset to watch the sun dip behind the Grand Hyatt. Food is good, drinks are good, service is slow. Shisha is OK (the view makes it good) I'd go again.

Our experience started off pleasant.... we were attended to promptly and our order taken. Our request to move to a lounge table was dealt with when one became available. Rashid kept our shisha well lit, and he is an asset to the hospitality at relax@12. However when we requested our bill it took some time to be dealt with and... More

Great lounge bar on the roof-top of the Aloft hotel. Always good vibes in the air. Stunning view even if the location is not very central and not much activity around. Wide range of beverages and good food too. Perfect location for an after-work!

The Relax @ 12 is the perfect gathering spot to top off the evening. We were entertained by THE DJ Tamer! Great live DJ. The lounge seating and lighting creates the perfect ambiance. People here love to dance and just have fun! The lively atmosphere is created by hotel guests and locals who come to enjoy Tamer. Ladies Nights extend... More

My last night at Aloft Hotel I chose this restaurant at the top floor. Stunning views in all directions. A bit windy though. So I had to put on my pullover. The food was very tasty and of high quality. I had fresh salmon with mashed potatoes and teryaki vegetables. Perfect size portion. Not too much, not too little.

Thank Carl-Henrik P
