On first impression this hotel is very modern and clean looking, if not a bit plain. Breakfast was quite good, it's sort of a fusion of European and Asian kitchen, freshly prepared eggs, omlettes and other hot and cold foods, salads, sushi, curries, fruits, etc. Nice deco in the breakfast area though, which has a bit of Arabic feel to it. The hotel has also a restaurant and a bar upstairs, and downstairs with a nice sitting area, business centre and also massage place. Rooms are quite spacious, no frill deco, but comfy bed, and all the necessary stuff like bath robes, a safe, etc made it a comfortable stay. Situated in a quite area of Abu Dhabi but it's a short drive to a mall, other shops and corniche water front. The only downside is a small pool on the roof top, which could only accommodate comfortably about ten to twelve people in and round the pool area, that's why I think it's best suited for a business stay, where you can catch the last of the sun and have a swim after work. Complimentary drinks were a nice touch in principal, but were not very nice - their house wine was like drinking pure cooking vinegar. If they just wanted to encourage you to stay at the bar, at least make that first free wine drinkable! Also there was a private party at the upstairs bar one night, and all hotel guests were sent downstairs. All in all, attentive staff, recommend for business stay.
