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 Apart from that rooms were spacious if outdated and again bathrooms need to be brought up to a higher specification.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! And the neighborhood was quiet. And you could easily catch a taxi a block down the street." He said: "I thought it was aging, musty, and poorly staffed.... More

The location of the Hotel is excellent as it is within % minutes walk to many good restaurants including fast food restaurants. Very close to the Abu Dhabi Corniche (within 10 minutes walk). The Spa is very... More

This was my first (certanly not last) visit to Abu Dhabi, and I chose this hotel just because it was almost on the corniche beach-so i was a bit concerned before I came. Check in could be faster, and bathroom could be refurbished-every time I used a shower I flooded entire bathroom floor, and unlocking balcony door should not be... More
