“Claim to Fame: Sits on an F1 Track: Period”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I had stayed in this hotel for 1 night with my wife and 3 yr old daughter in Oct 2013. The check in was okay and we were ushered in our room by the attendant. The room view was nice, overlooking the grand stand of the F1 track. But the feeling that we got in the room was not that of a 5 star property. The floor had marks on it (they were not patterns), the mini bar had dust (I have posted a photo of the same), the sofa cover was not clean (photo posted). The Italian and the Indian Restaurants had only a handful of space inside (please see my review of the Indian Restaurant, Agnar). Overall, I will never visit it again. If I need to go for the F1, I would rather drive from Dubai.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

From the intrance, a certain excitment is perceptible in what has become the favorite establishment of those passionate about car circuits, where you can come across sport teams or staightforwards clients.The hall of the hotel instantly serves as a protective bubble against the noise of the roaring of the engines outside.
In the spacefull rooms, the same feeling of being in a cocoon. The glass walls offer a spectacular view of the racing cars.Extending the circuit, the smooth waters of the Marina remind us that Yas is also home to a yachting resort. What is impressive is the cellular construction of this five stars hotel. Two buildings have been directly built in the center of the formula 1 circuit. The second raised out of the sands to welcome the "Nautilus" a rather futuristic restaurant designed like a submarine.The second building is the beauty center. Outside, a bit net covers the roof. In the passage that links the two constructions, the weel- named "rush bar" has been installed, a bar that literally overhangs a bend, allowing maximum adrenalin without the stress dur to the noise.This hotel is not only a wonderful architecture but it offers a place for convivial living to its occupants of the 499 rooms and suites with its seven restaurants, indian, japanese, italian, arabic , asian and international cuisine. Try the green asparagus flan which has a distinctive flavor and the sweet raviolis served as dessert offer an astonishing sugary note under their little cushions of spicy chocolate, bitter orange and macaron crumble. However, no beach,but Yas beach can be accessed by private shuttles graciously put at your disposition. For more elegance, the Monte Carlo Beach Club Saadiyat can be an option where formulas adapted to the clients of the hotel are proposed.

This hotel as the other reviews state is beautiful. Lovely design and high quality finish. The rooms and very spacious and comfortable. But I did have two issues: 1, very complex lighting controls but unsatisfactory lighting. 2, a slower door that opens outwards pushing the floor mat away meaning there is no option other than to make the floor wet and slippy.
Staff were very pleasant and accomodating in all areas including the pools.
I ate only the buffet breakfast amd in the Japenese restaurant. Breakfast was buffet style which generally don't like but there was huge choice and it was good quality. Eggs were poached on my request and brought to the table. Surprisingly for a 5* hotel no pork was served. I have no complaints about the Japanese restaurant which served excellent sushi and very good quality and flavoursome tappen yaki.
The open air bar is huge and when not busy it is quite soulless. However it is very comfortable and like all other areas the service was good.

We stayed at this hotel for a week, ultra modern design, the room was marvellous a good size with everything you could want, the service we got here was fabulous and all staff were very very friendly and could not do enough for you. It was spotlessly clean, a fantastic pool and a wonderful private beach approximately a mile away but have your own chauffeur driven car to take and bring you back. As we are F1 fans it was a dream to stay here right next to the circuit and marina.
If there was a complaint it would be the evening buffet meal in the Origins restaurant, although breakfast in same restaurant was very good. We absolutely loved our holiday here and hope to return some time in the near future.

Room Tip: Nice to have a room overlooking the marina

Dear Susan C,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Yas Viceroy. I was delighted to read that you had an enjoyable holiday and found both the hotel and staff ‘fabulous’. I was however, disappointed to learn that your evening meal in Origins did not meet your expectations and have brought this up with our F&B team. Similarly, I have passed on your favorable breakfast comments.
On behalf of everyone at Yas Viceroy, it would be our pleasure to welcome you back.

Kind regards,

The hotel is like something out of a James Bond movie- truly awe inspiring design and architecture. It most be the most unique location of any hotel in the world, embedded in a F1 track. The food is delicious and the staff are attentive and consumately professional. A true gem.

Very helpful and cheerful staff. I have stayed @ Viceroy a couple of times and both were outstanding experiences. As my flight always departs around 2am, I choose to even pay for a daily rate for a soothing and relaxing day at the hotel. Fabulous rooms which are very spacious and crystal clean.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed...

This Hotel was absolutely fabulous, from the architecture down to the amazing rooms... The Staff were so friendly and helpful, there was nothing they couldn't do for you. I am not into Grand Prix racing, but having stayed there, this past week for 3 nights, makes me want to return and see a race... The restaurants are beautiful and the food is of an extremely high quality. The service in the 2 restaurants we ate in, was impeccable.
I would recommend this hotel to Single travellers, couples and even families.... So much to see and do... Fabulous pools, great bars and not overly expensive regarding the 5* rating this Hotel so deserves. Well done Viceroy....

Room Tip: They are all beautiful..
