“Great for F1 GP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Stayed here for the 2011 and 2012 Formula 1 Grands Prix, mainly due to the location and price. It's a 1 hour drive from Dubai Airport and then just 15-20mins to the Yas Marina circuit. It's more of a motel than a hotel as it seems to be in the middle of nowhere at junction 366 of the Dubai-Abu Dhabi road. (Make sure your driver takes you to the Tulip Inn and not the Golden Tulip Hotel which is 15mins closer to Dubai!)

Check-in/out was very efficient, we were given a late check-out on request and they looked after our luggage until after the race. Rooms were spacious and clean with a very large balcony overlooking the pool (see photo) Receptionist (Nagilya ??) was very helpful when I had a problem with my safety deposit box and she also arranged our taxis. 

The hotel appeared quite empty on both occasions so it was very relaxing sitting around the pool soaking up the sun. Whenever you walked into the empty restaurant or coffee shop a staff member would suddenly appear (like the shopkeeper in Mr Benn). Good menu with plenty of Asian and Western snacks, beers/spirits available in the Two Crows bar at usual Emirates prices. 

Thanks to the manager and his friendly staff I shall be returning to this hotel when I next watch F1 in Abu Dhabi :-)

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

It was a nice stay but, the staff was not aware of what the offered breakfast was! They made us look throu menus and choose but they offered us only standard continental. Also an issue wi the room's plumbing, but they fixed it fast.

This is not a bad hotel (Motel), used by locals alot. rooms are massive and of an ok standard again nothing fantastic. The staff were however fantastic nothing was to much trouble. Food ok but menu limited after about 3 days it was the same old thing - you can only eat so many club sandwiches!!!!! over all not bad for a few quiet days or buissnes stop over.
