Stayed during Feb 2015. Hotel is in a very convenient location. Location is just a distant away from the beach and surrounded by Hotels and a Shopping mall . Rooms are big enough . Neat and clean. polite staff. Overall the stay was good. If you a looking for a budget hotel in Abudhabi you can consider this.

This was my first business trip to Abu DHabi and I was not responsible for booking the hotel. Unfortunately this hotel was not what t seems. Parking in down town Abu Dhabi is not the best and the hotel has only very limited spaces. The concierge was more than happy to help out, but for a fee of AED30 per... More

This was my worst Hotel I have ever stayed in the World. The reception lady was amazingly terrible. The whole system in this hotel is a failure. The only person on the staff to earn a good mark was the bellboy. I was forced by my hiring company to stay there for five nights during my in processing for new... More

- Reception staff has no concept of receiving guests. When I arrived, I am waiting to be checked in and they look at me as if I was not welcome. One of them was just sitting there and failed to offer help. - Room is big, but poor lighting, had very difficult time with WiFi, and could not do some... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. Location is good, room was very damp and poor lighting made it very depressing. Several bars are there in the hotel, music is noisy and affects sleep. Bars seem to be pickup joints.

I had the misfortune to stay at Howard Johnson Diplomat Hotel for several weeks whilst working in Abu Dhabi. It is a very poor hotel, there is loud music playing from the 12 bars until the early hours, some nights until 4am, making sleep difficult. There are prostitutes all over the place. The food is bad. Stay somewhere else if... More
