The Emirates Palace was built as a marquee for Abu Dhabi like the Burj Al Arab its for Dubai. A lavish and full of luxury hotel, with several stars more than just a regular hotel and with the objective to the capital Emirate in the planet. Even though, they spend huge amount of money, it didn't achieve that goal. Still,... More

I was expecting so much more during Iftar considering it is the Emirates Palace etc....however I went to another 5 star restaurant for Iftar a few nights later and found their selection far superior and was less...

A true pride of Abu Dhabi. Beyond words. Size, material, architecture and detail. Service? Not sure, the place is too big to encounter with hotel staff. Be sure to take a photo at world's only Gold vending machine in the lobby :)

From the gold bar machine to the manicured grounds and impressive public areas it has certainly got a bit of the weird and wonderful and ultimately it is worth a "brief" visit

Attended a ball here, the food was phenomenal. The hotel was like nothing I had seen before. Well worth a visit. I was very impressed.
