A really fabulous palace. I have visited this palace during the ATIF corporate evening and this hotel has a wow effect, specially during the night. Catering was delicious and very helpful staff.

We found the hotel to be 'too' big if anything. Take the guided tour organised by the hotel, you will get to see the main suites with their gold handbasins. Afternoon tea is nice but a bit pricey. If in Abu Dhabi dont leave without visiting.

On our way in to the Palace's tea room, we passed one of the new Gold "Vending Machines" of course we purchased some! We then proceeded to have a lovely tea with treats dusted in none other than gold leaf! It is a beautiful Palace and well worth going to see. Interesting history.

Beautiful landmark. It is a must see while in UAE. Be sure to order a coffee - it is an amazing decadent piece of art with 24k gold flakes. It is definitely a once - in - a - lifetime experience. It was one of my daughter's (19yrs) favorite part of our trip.

Luxury at its best, this is a world on its own. We visited by taxi, the guards did check if we were dressed appropriately (sneakers were ok). Strolled around to observe wide collection of ancient local object. Definitely visit to complete your Abu Dhabi experience.

Incredible decor, world class service the absolute height of decadence, a must visit experience for today's moneyed classes, try the Emirates coffee sprinkled with gold and if your short of cash them check out the ATM .... This is surreal.

Absoulety beautiful palace, well worth a visit or even better if you can afford to to stay. If im back in Abu Dabai i think a wee afternoon tea will be required in this beautiful hotel.

The sheer size and flamboyance of this place is breathtaking and almost obscene in the sense that I could not fathom the degree of wealth associated with the hotel and its guests. Highlight of my visit was the views and the GOLD atm! A must see, especially at night when it is colourfully lit up.
