Travelers' Choice
Opened in the first quarter 2012, the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche (part of Capital Plaza building) is ideally situated in the heart of the city, close to the seafront and the business and financial center. It enjoys a privileged location on Corniche Road, one of the most prestigious district. The maritime centre Port Zayed, the Souk, famous for its rugs and Dhow Harbour, home to the traditional transport and fishing boats which still take to the waters of the Arabian Gulf, are all a short distance from the hotel. The hotel offers all the services of a world-class French establishment, blending its origins with the best of the Oriental influences: butler service and executive lounge access (Club Millesime) for club rooms and suites, and the famous MyBed concept and Bose wave in all rooms. Each of the rooms offer breathtaking views over city and Arabian Gulf. Additionally, the hotel offers 3 signature restaurants and 3 bars, a pool, a spa and wellness space and 9 meeting rooms. A ballroom can also welcome up to 1000 visitors and therefore host any kind of events.

Stayed for one night which was yesterday , booked as a couples stay with my reservation confirming a double bed. Was given two twin beds, was not made aware of this when checking in. Only noticed when we were allocated the room. I spoke to the check in desk who said they were sorry but they’re full and cant offer me a double bed. And when booked via a third party the number of guests on the booking are not confirmed which I found ridiculous. After repeating myself several times that I wasn’t happy with a twin room, housekeeping was sent to join the two twin beds together. Why they couldn’t just do this in the first place I don’t know. Booked a superior room, carpet was dirty and stained, found a nail clipping on the floor, the room was dingy and dark definitely not spacious as advertised the view consisted of dirty windows and a tower block. The Balmain toiletries seemed cheap knock offs and smelt of nothing. Was less than a luxury experience definitely not a 5 star hotel. Id say a 4 star maximum. The lifts were extremely slow often with long ques to use them. Breakfast was organised chaos! Nobody to greet us and give us a table. Not asked if we would like any tea of coffee. Staff seemed rushed off their feet. The only positive was the variety of food they had for breakfast. Room was 1440 and I could hear the next door room occupants shrieking until late hours in the night. A truly disappointing stay after a long days travel and first night in Abu Dhabi.

Every staff member was really professional and friendly. Impeccable cleaning. A variety of food dishes at dinner and breakfast. Rather close to the beach and shuttle service + towels provided. Not so much sun at the big pool in first part of the day, however you have a smaller one as backup.

Traveled with my husband on vacation. Nice hotel located just a short walk from the Corniche. Room was spacious. Disappointed late check was denied. Excellent service from the concierge Saju! He was very helpful with planning our activities and making reservations.

The Sofitel is a wonderful, family focussed and high serviced orientated hotel. We would without a doubt return to this wonderful location, greatly located on the Corniche and a taxi ride away from all tourist sights. Our favourite part of the hotel is without hesitation the excellent staff - starting with Adil in reception, Richard and Andrew on the 35th - a credit to the hotel ambience and not forgetting the brilliant Chef Riza who despite all the guests remembers our specific egg order daily! We are warmly welcomed every morning to the breakfast lounge by Saqib, also we loved Binod -the wonderful concierge staff who does everything with a beautiful smile. The hotel has a massive variety of food at breakfast and we found all the food absolutely delicious. There are a few pools and a jacuzzi and we had lots of fun playing in the pool which overlooks the sea. The room is spectacular, cleaned daily very spacious with incredible views of the ocean. We just loved our stay and will miss it once we leave!

Double check before booking, and read more reviews about the hotel, it might happened because it is noty day. expecting a top-notch experience given its five-star rating. However, the reality fell far short of my expectations. Despite numerous attempts, I couldn't get through to the hotel staff via telephone for assistance and I went down to reception to talk to them. This lack of responsiveness greatly hindered my stay and left me feeling neglected. The overall service quality was also subpar, failing to meet the standards one would expect from a luxury establishment. Disappointing experience overall. I disappointed in the way they handled my complaint, when I reach the hotel, they told me they did upgrade for me (from luxury sea view room to club room) which I thanked them for that, when I access the room their was a very bad smoking smell, as I explained above they did not answer the phone, so I went down to talk to them as we are non smokers (they did not inform us that it is smoking room), I asked to change the room and they said will check and please wait for a while, we waited for 30 minutes in the lobby which is so long, I checked with them, they told me they are still searching for a room, after complaining they give me a room, when I access the room I shocked they give me the luxury room, not the upgraded one, and when I asked they said they don't have non smoking club room.

Excellent service especially Mr. Richard at Club Millesime. Good location that close to all tourist spots and there is Lulu Supermarket next door! Moreover you can have a sunset with sea view. Their Thai restaurant, Silk & Spice gets Michelin guide! Thai ppl coming here no need to worry if you miss Thai food~ Highly recommended if you come to Abu Dhabi.

Staff are really lovely, the rooms are spacious and the bath is fabulous. The valets would always have my car ready and Chef Deshan in the buffet restaurant was amazing - knew my order and would go out of his way. My criticism would be that the coffee could be improved at breakfast :).
