I had booked the hotel after reading a few reviews and I was glad that even though at promotional rate the hotel still managed to keep my stay nice. It was better than the previous hotel i stayed one day prior! Pleasant staffs who ensured that all my requests were attended to very fast and also supported me when i... More

Bad staff behavior!!! Bad service!! This hotel is a worst one I have ever stayed. I stay there on 14th Feb which was our wedding anniversary. I we had very bad memories with the stay at this hotel. This is not 5 stars please. The staff is so rude. They take 200AED deposit which was not mention anywhere. While leaving... More

I booked this hotel for my trip. Unfortunately, there were many negative points I found, that may lead unpleasant experience for another traveler. (1) I booked a non smoking room, but when I got into my room, the smell of cigarette was thick, I hate it. (2) When I asked the hotel to help me order a taxi to go... More

The room was nice. Night receptionist was warm and welcoming. Valet attendants were very kind and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good value for money, the cook was polite but the restaurant lacked the attention from the servers, no one approached our table to offer beverages. Finding the hotel was a bit of a hassle because the name on the building... More

Spend one evening in this hotel. Staff were not particularly helpful and did not explain any of the facilities at the hotel. The room itself was large, it had 2 single beds it appeared quite glamorous in the dark but by the light of day was not so. It smelled very strongly of smoke which was very unpleasant. Only good...

The hotel has not lived up to my expectations. It aims to be high class but lacks style and service of better hotels. That's no problem, since this isn't a 5 star hotel. The problem is, that the hotel doesn't even deliver what it claims to have. Wifi is close to not existed, no-smoking rooms smell like smoke all day... More

Lights come from everywhere in the room you can't sleep. Furniture not clean. Bathroom floor and walls were ditrty. Bathroom has a super bad smell. Reception ppl attitude was the worst. they ask for deposit before even welcome you. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here for one night and actually enjoyed it. I got a good deal as I booked early and got a great room. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining soo much in other reviews. I arrived late and yes the night reception guy wasn't the happiest person in the world. After reading previous reviews I was trying to... More

The last few times we have been to Abu Dhabi, we have stayed here. And we like it. The price to quality ratio is excellent at this place. There is a restaurant and a swimming pool on the top floor. The staff are friendly. There is valet parking. It has free wifi. And it is in a good location. The... More

The hotel check-in and check-out was very efficient. The staff were neither unfriendly nor overly friendly (as is often the case in the UAE!). It's easy to find, easy to unload/load the car right in front of the hotel entrance, and the valet parking is quick - I'd rate it above the nearby and slightly pricier Ramada in this regard,...
