Arriving at the hotel was amazingly friendly from the outset, from Stephen who took our bags and brought them to our room, and at the front desk where they were so friendly, proud of their hotel and wanting to make sure we enjoyed our stay at their hotel - and that we did.Without asking we were upgraded to a corner suite It was a lovely room, very modern and spacious and a comfortable bed but unfortunately we were woken with the first call to prayer at 3.45am (yes, our own fault for arriving in the middle of Ramadan)
Buffet breakfast was in the large restaurant area where there were great views over the city, prior to breakfast, we utilised the gym which the girl kindly opened up early for our convenience - a very well equipped gym it was too.
The spread at breakfast was impressive and anything you required was available and of course all the staff were friendly and keen to assist - there were two that came to Abu Dhabi from Nepal, and another who came from Ethiopia.
Due to it being Ramadan we ate in the hotel restaurant and the chef was brilliant, my wife told him she could not have garlic so he cooked a meal especially for - nothing at this hotel was too much trouble.
You should be aware this hotel is located in the business district but do not take this as a negative as the tourist area would only be a 5 min. drive away and taxis a very cheap.
Would definitely use this hotel again when visiting Abu Dhabi
