We landed to find 43 degree temperatures and dust restricting the views. And it was Ramadan, though that turned out not to be a problem (could eat in our room, and drinking water did not seem to be an issue as long as you were discrete - we were told to drink from the water fountains at the Grand Mosque...

I stayed here for 10 days while in Abu Dhabi, a decent smaller hotel with really good friendly staff. I stayed in a deluxe room which is a good size, has a nice table with two comfy chairs, a computer desk, and plenty of storage space. There is a computer network outlet in the room, or you can connect to... More

Nice hotel in a good tourist location for Abu Dhabi. A little difficult to find and there is a Cristal Salam and a Cristal hotel, so make sure you give the taxi driver the right one. Friendly check, although valet for car is a bit slow. We got a free upgrade since the hotel wasn't too busy, which was really... More

Stayed at the Cristal Salam for the last 2 days of our honeymoon. Good service. Also enjoyed the rooftop bar/club and also the spa which we took advantage of with the deal they had. Got a free upgrade which was awesome too. Staff were helpful and location is perfect.

I stayed here for 3 weeks on business. Chose this hotel because it's near to office. Honestly, i didn't expect much before check in. However, to my surprise, the room is so nice which exceeded my expectation. Check in is no hassle, compliment to Cheryl at the front desk who is very helpful and attentive. Gave me a free upgrade...

We choose this hotel based on the reviews we saw and we were happy with the results. Breakfast is not included and even though it was pricy we decided to give it a chance. It was not worth it so we did not eat there again. Other than that, the staff was very helpful and the room was excellent. the... More

The hotel was a nice, clean hotel. I have stayed at the other Cristal in Abu Dhabi and found the staff there to have been more friendlier. However, the greetings here were average. The room was fine. The gentleman that helped me with the car lift (elevator) and brought my luggage to my room was probably the only exception. He... More
