We attended the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and stayed at the Fairmont. We found all the hotel staff to be very helpful and charming. Our city view room was clean, attractive and well designed with 2 very comfy double beds. The black-out curtains were effective and the room was very quiet. It would have been nicer to have been on... More

Where can we begin? Everything about this hotel was captivating. From the moment we arrived to check-in, the 2 lovely ladies at the reception greeted us really nicely and even gave us an upgrade once they found out we were visiting on our honeymoon. How was the room? AMAZING, CLEAN, FRESH, MODERN, AND LARGE. The staff from top to bottom... More

This hotel was not particularly up to date. It smelled like smoke everywhere. For a non-smoker, this was very unpleasant. The rooms were more modern, Asian style. However, the shower space was literally on top of the tub. There was just not much dedicated shower space. The views are impeccable with one side of the building facing the city, and... More

The hotel was lovely a little further out than we imagined however walking distance to the souk through the Shangri la hotel. The overall cleanliness was faultless and most of the staff couldn't do enough for you. I wouldn't recommend half board as the hotel meal options aren't great and the staff in Cuiscene are extremely slow and forgetful. We... More
