Stayed in this hotel with a group of cousins because we were attending our cousin's wedding at the Intercontinental. I liked the modern interior design. The sleep quality was good and overall a very clean hotel. Staff were friendly and very professional when they dealt with us, a big group which is checking in all at once. The location is... More

I have been living here for past 2 weeks as my company has booked my self here, I have no other choice. But believe me the reception is worst, I have traveled all over the world and GCC, and even I can find better Hotel in deserts.

The hotel was pretty good. I was nervous when I saw the lights running up and down the building. However, there is valet service which may take some time. The hotel has a real Arabic feel too it. The decor is quite busy, but has some appeal. The only problem I had was that I asked for an iron that... More

Stayed here 6 nights--all the while booked via specials on Agoda or Booking.com. Had a very large room with a good king bed & a view of the sunset behind the Sheraton Hotel on the 16th floor. Very good value for money (@85-100USD per night). Very well located for jumping off to business, tourist, sunbathing sites.Not so good news: management... More

The hotel was very nice. It was well-taken care of, generally. Our room was clean, but we weren't given any towels (had to ask for them twice). The check in process was generally painless. Our room wasn't ready until the afternoon, but the staff allowed us to leave our bags behind their counter. The neighborhood wasn't anything special, but it... More

The hotel is very well located, just 5 min walk from the beggining of the Corniche. We stayed at the Executive Suite, which was really spacious and comfortable, everything we had hoped for. We checked in pretty quick and we were offered arabic coffee at the lobby. The bell boys really helpful. The reception staff also, although not really friendly,... More

This hotel is very nice hotel and the staff at the reception and manager were all very helpful and knowledgeable. There are some negatives about the property, such as cleanliness and the numerous old men who sit around the lobby and smoke. I don't smoke so it is annoying. If you're looking for a nice place to stay in abu... More

Located just a few hundred metres from the Corniche makes this an ideal place to stay. We arrived around midnight and whilst the check in process was a bit long winded all staff were very attentive and welcoming. A real plus was the speed with which our baggage was delivered to our room. The room was plenty big enough, well... More
