“Just a cheap, clean place to stay for a few nights.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Have stayed here 4 times in 4 yrs with my small family. 2 adults 2 children. We always transit Abu Dhabi for 2 days en route to Pakistan so a reasonably priced, clean hotel is what we look for. Also reasonably priced varied food close to hotel is essential. This hotel ticks these boxes for us.
We stay in one of the suites which is more then adequate and have never paid more than £60 a night!
For lunch we go to the reasonably priced, Al Ibrahimi restaurant next door (popular with the locals which vouches for freshness and quality of food), and fast food at the local shopping mall suffices as dinner and a treat for the kids. Breakfast is early, never had it as we've always been asleep at the time, so can't comment.
It's located next to large store selling everything cheap. Great for loads of souvenirs at great prices.
Location is a bit far from the airport, but then again the airport's far from the main city anyway.
Don't expect a 'holiday in a hotel' experience, just a clean cheap place to stay. The Corniche is only 5mins away by local taxi for the beach experience, but the Yas marina area is far.

While
a) it's cheap at just over $100 for a twin even when everything else was booked and
b) has good staff and manager.

It has a ridiculous, shameful and intrusive owner policy of couples having to show marriage certificate.

Read the small print very carefully
"Couples wishing to share a room must provide proof of marriage."
Be aware that they are serious about this - apparently only one of two hotels in Abu Dhabi that are. This is an owners whim, and (according to staff) an average of five couples per day are caught out by this.

Aside from that, the hotel was okay for the price, centrally located, friendly staff and a very kind and understanding manager who is sympathetic to us heathens, though unable to effect a u-turn in the owners' desire to force his own moral stance on his paying guests.

Room Tip: Don't book here. Even though you might otherwise find it's fine, the place deserves to be b...

Booked through booking.com for 1 night, check in very slow, first impression very bad, lousy and dirty area. Staff not helpful at all. Later they found out that we are not married, so we couldn't stay in the hotel but we paid already, nothing mentioned on the homepage, no cash refund or anything. Careless absolutely ridiculous. For the same price please stay somewhere else, not worth a single penny !!!

Old dated hotel that needs refurbishing. Saw a roach in the bathroom. My friend upstairs saw SEVERAL in her room. Had to pay AED100 for one week of internet. Restaurant was fairly priced.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night. The hotel was clean and prices reasonably if you book via booking.com. Not the closet to the airport. Breakast is only served after 7 AM,so if you have to leave very early you'll miss as I did.
