First visit to this hotel. It's about 20 mins from the airport. Journey both ways by A2B transfers was only £14 which was good value. Arrived at the hotel at 0530 but the room was ready which was great. Simon on reception was a great help. Room on 4th floor had a view to the Great Mosque (so ask for... More

When choosing a hotel for Abu Dhabi I used trip advisor to decide where I wanted to stay. Overall the views were good, so I took the plunge being very fussy about hotels I didn't want to make a mistake. I must say that I'm not disappointed, the hotel room that I have is a gold superior room with a... More

I stayed here for several days for a conference and it was a wonderful experience. The view over the bay from the elevator was particularly charming with views of the Grand Mosque, varying depending on the time of day and the light, but particularly beautiful at night. I found all the staff to be friendly and exceptionally helpful in finding... More

We have just returned from an amazing five nights at this hotel. We stayed in a gold view room which had a fantastic view of the Mosque. Service was everything we had hoped for.Excellent value for money, we will certainly return here next year.

Stayed here recently in a Fairmont Gold room having stayed here last March too. I think the service has gone up a notch, particularly around the pool and the hotel remains a first class destination for couples and families alike. Brilliantly located and with very modern 5 star facilities. Looking forward to trip number 3. Keep it up Fairmont!

Very nice city hotel with superb views of Sheikh Zayed Mosque (definitely worth paying a little extra for the rooms with a view). Service is good, there's a good choice of restaurant and the rooms are comfortable. Pool gets very busy on weekends though.

- speedy check-in/out - amazing staff - great hotel gardens, pools ( some renovation at the poolside bar - not so disturbing ) - fantastic food choice and quality - expensive poolside bar - try the boat on the creek - amazing views on the Mosque - only high pillows - not too comfortable
