I have heard that the Kerala restaurant is quite good though I have personally not been there. The music in the nights do tend to get... More

The staff were very unprofessional. Check in took ages and they didnt charge the right amount in the first try! Cleanliness was so so, professionalism of staff was very poor. I was woken up at 8 am by staff to ask me if i had laundry or not! The next day a male receptionist thought it funny to pull another... More

I commend Famad and his staff for making our stay so comfortable. The room was big with a king bed with lots of space and storage very... More

When it comes to 8pm then you will noticed many are preparing their way for the late night party, which consist many in the hotel itself. If you are easily irritated by... More

A good breakfast was served everyday consisting of juice, fruit, breads, three to four other dishes, eggs followed by tea/coffee. The rooms were spacious and clean. Our room had a small kitchenette area although without a stove etc but the... More

It was an excellent stay for business. Easy access to shopping, nighlife, Indian restaurants. Breakfast was ok. But I opted out as there are lot other options outside. Front desk is very helpful in accommodating the room for a non-smoking. Internet, you will have to collect login id & passwords from front desk

Stayed during Feb 2015. Hotel is in a very convenient location. Location is just a distant away from the beach and surrounded by Hotels and a Shopping mall . Rooms are big enough . Neat and clean. polite staff. Overall the stay was good. If you a looking for a budget hotel in Abudhabi you can consider this.

This was my first business trip to Abu DHabi and I was not responsible for booking the hotel. Unfortunately this hotel was not what t seems. Parking in down town Abu Dhabi is not the best and the hotel has only very limited spaces. The concierge was more than happy to help out, but for a fee of AED30 per... More
