hii last month i was in oryx abudhabi . i found the people on the desk as well as housekeepers very pleasant. The food at ramadan buffet was also excellent.
The mini bar provided in the rooms was also nice. but one thing which like most is the bathroom which are very nice and with lot of space .

This is one of a humble hotel with trained staff. Even for one night stay with my family, staff was supportive & well mannered.
A very comfy hotel, good location,near shopping malls & fast food chains, taxi cabs are all around. Variety stores are just in the corner.
I strongly recommend this hotel for everyone who wants good service & good food.

the Oryx Hotel in Abu Dhabi is located away from the city traffic. it's very close to Cornich. you will love to stay in it if you have work in Khaledeya area or if you want to stay in Abu Dhabi city and at the same time you want a quick access to Musaffah, Khalifia city or airport thru Al Khaleej Al Arabi street. The Hotel is clean & tidy. there are no activities to do in this hotel however you can enjoy a drink near the pool on the roof.

Room Tip: Higher floors for nice city view

This hotel is "meh" at best.

Cons: The bed is extraordinarily uncomfortable and the bathroom tile is in desperate need of a grout-scrubbing cleaning. There is a small bit of mold growing on the ceiling above my bed (which I am allergic to) and the internet is not included with the room charges. We have also paid for breakfasts, but don't even bother because the breakfast buffet is gross. There are gnats buzzing around the croissants constantly and the food is bland at best. There is not at all enough lighting in the rooms (but this is a minor inconvenience more than a problem).

Pros: The staff members are all very kind and helpful, I have not had a negative encounter with them at all. The sheets are always spotlessly clean and the blanket is amazingly cozy. The bath tub is also perfectly clean. It is in a very good location (a 10 minute walk from the corniche and a 20 minute walk from the Khalidiya mall) and there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants right around the corner. It is quiet at night and the view from my room (on the 15th floor) is very nice.

I would never choose to stay here again, but it isn't a completely miserable experience. So, meh.

The Oryx Hotel is a clean, 3-star property on the Corniche. It is a no-frills business hotel. They have a big issue about parking. Their parking lot is some distance away and the single concierge cum driver has to be informed 15 minutes a prior if you dont want to wait for your car. The F & B is very pedestrian. The rooms are large and clean. The beds just about comfortable. The bathroom area is compressed into a small space with a very small shower area. The shower is under-pressured and the toiletries are horrible. But then you get a big, clean, comfortable room on the Corniche for a very reasonable price. Be happy.

The hotel is 1st class. Clean, well presented, and extremely friendly. It is the staff that makes the hotel stand out. Always a smile and a kind word, helpful information and willingness to share a laugh. The location is very good. 2 blocks from the Corniche waterside walk. The beaches are spotless, like the rest of the country. There are numerous inexpensive restaurants, grocery stores within walking distance or you can take a quick cab ride to the most expensive places in the world.The hotel is moderately priced, for Abu Dhabi. Taxi is very inexpensive to almost anywhere. A high room facing the city is suggested. Quiet, comfortable and OK.

Room Tip: high room facing the city
