“Memorable stay in Abu Dhabi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A lovely, modern, clean and upmarket hotel perfectly situated in Abu Dhabi. They have stunning restaurants, a lovely pool area and very friendly staff. I will definitely be back when travelling back to Abu Dhabi!

Staying at Novotel during weekend is one of the best weekend I had...

Such a relaxing place away from busy downtown...

They have all the best to offer...from the quality of service and their facilities to the quality of foods... Amazing!

Would love to go back to this hotel anytime...

Clean and comfortable. Was a good deal with free breakfast.

Breakfast was a petty simple buffet, it done the job but nothing fancy.

Rooms were nice. Non-smoking room has a very slight musty smoke odour from air con, but was bearable [reformed smoker here]

About $15 USD from airport in a taxi.

Would recommend for one night only as a transit or business stay.

I landed in Abu Dhabi at 8am and was not flying out till 10pm so I gave them a call to check if they could arrange a room for a daytime stay. It wasn't a problem. They didn't have a room ready when I got there though but they arranged to clear one in 30 minutes. Only problem is that it was a smoking room and a bit stinky but I was so tired I slept anyway. It's only 40 dirhams taxi drive from the airport and on the way to the Grand Mosque which is a must see. The website says there's a tour desk but it's just the hotel staff giving you recommendations. Overall great deal.

Stayed there last week for 1 night only. Good size room , quiet, nice heated pool. A bit disappointed about the bathroom. It s nice to see that it has both a bathtub and shower, but the water was coming out from the shower cabin and the roof in the bathroom has been badly painted after what seems to be a leakage from the upper floor. Didn't make it on time for breakfast and wanted to have a coffee outside as the view and weather were lovely, unfortunately there was no place to do so. Settled for a coffee and a City Breakfast at Aroma Caffe.My companion wanted some sandwiches or other breakfast items, unfortunately only a selection of 3-4 sandwiches were available which came with a side of a fruit salad not even a salad or fries, as you would normally expect next to a sandwich. On the other hand great service at the Belgian Beer Cafe in the evening and a very pleasant atmosphere.

We stayed here for the F1 Grand Prix last weekend and booked it because it was reasonably priced and not too far from Yas Marina Circuit, we were just expecting a budget type hotel and expectations weren't too high but the hotel and the staff far exceeded them. The rooms are well equipped and clean and modern and plenty big enough for 2 guests, the bed was extremely comfortable and there was no noise from outside/other guests at all.
Breakfast was really good with plenty of choice and the hot food was really hot which it usually isn't on a buffet style. There is also the option for eggs, omelettes etc to be cooked to order. Although it was busy staff were attentive and tables were cleared and re-layed quickly.
We ate in the Italian Gabbiano restaurant on 2 nights and the food was really good and wine selection very good. The Chef/owner Soumitra was very welcoming and went out of his way to make sure we were well looked after. My partner has coeliac disease and Soumitra completely understood the condition and made sure that an area of the kitchen was cleaned down (to ensure no cross contamination) so that he could prepare some gluten free pasta for him! He has never had homemade gluten free pasta at a restaurant before!
The hotel is a little out of the way and the road system means a bit of an indirect route to reach it but taxis are always on hand and are very reasonably priced. Yas marina was about 20 mins away and the taxi was less than £10. Beware of the unmarked taxis though, we got one back one night and the driver tried to charge 3 times the price, the hotel staff helped sort him out though!
There is a huge gym a spa and an outdoor pool, plenty of bar/food options and a little shop in reception.
We are hoping to go back next year.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and got one!
