ocation of this hotel is the best as it is situated in the city centre. Rooms are small but clean and well maintained. Had a good time listening to the band of Harvesters Pub located at their ground floor brings me good memories. The hotel is budget friendly and the staff are very approachable.

I have stayed in sands hotel with my family lately and the first thing i noticed was the warm welcome of the staff at the reception. For the rooms it's a bit old but it's okay since the rates are very cheap and affordable.

I always stay in the Sands Hotel when I am in Abu Dhabi. The rooms are comparatively small and a bit drab but that is reflected in the price. I understand that refurbishment is taking place and this is being done floor by floor. It is in a good location, has live music in 3 locations, a variety of food... More

If you are travelling with your partner AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. We stayed here for one night, and that was more than enough. We went to the bar located within the hotel and were utterly disgusted at how many 'working girls' were hanging around in the bar area. One even kept eyeing up my partner in front of me. The food...

I stayed twice in March 2014 at the Sands Hotel Abu Dhabi and would recommend anyone especially for short stays. Located within the city, it makes it easy to go to any direction. I think it was great value for my money!
