The hotel is located in Khalidiya area surrounded by many restaurants and shops. Their price is very affordable given the location and other similar hotels. The rooms are nice and up to date. The service is fine but need to improve the speed of the service. Overall, nice place to stay and great location. The only drawback is many African... More

This hotel is very cheap and they have a clean and huge delux king room. We're absolutely coming back to this place. But one thing catch my attention the reception area had a bad smell I don't know we're the smell came from, the rest is perfect, room service, food and they had a cheap alcohol menu.

Love this hotel been going since it opened. Love the terrace and the views are spectacular across AD Shisha good The owner often sits discretely and does majlis type of meetings not that you would notice if you didn't know But that is another fab thing about the genuineness of the place No noise from other rooms in the hotel...

The property is close to the business district, and also a short walk from the corniche. You can spend your day hectic and then then relax walking / cycling along the corniche. Net Tidy,,, some staff / cleaning can be haphazard

A little below its 4* rating, a bit run down, breakfasts were not good and it would help if the service at reception was a little more friendly. Apart from that rooms were spacious if outdated and again bathrooms need to be brought up to a higher specification. Lighting in the room was very poor, and impossible to read a... More

I am pleased to see the correct address for this hotel is listed on your site. The one I booked on had it on Corniche Street and it certainly isn't. I stayed one night. At check in I offered cash because I had a wallet full of it, so why not? The receptionist asked if I would collect the change... More

I recently stayed at the Oryx for a week while visiting Abu Dhabi. The location of this hotel is central to the city center and the fabulous Corniche beach area. I felt quite safe as I ventured out to explore the area. The hotel was quiet and rooms were large. I stayed in a regular king then moved to a... More

She said: "I loved the Oryx. Awesome rooftop patio, bed was super comfy, room was much larger than expected, and the bathroom was totally better than some of the TripAdvisor reviews suggested!
