Sadly it is so disappointing to visit a place u call home away from home but then a hostess tells u to get out coz u can’t wait for friends. Very rude and wen I complained to the manager at the exit he said it’s my fault that I have to wait . Kiss me goodbye me and my friends will never be at that club till changes have been made. Rude customer service and no clue about customer care

The furniture in the room is worn and needs to be replaced. It's generally dirty, lots of bugs. Air conditioning doesn't work properly. The quality of food is very poor. Staff avoids answering questions and does not follow guests' requests.

Room has cockroaches everywhere. Air conditioning is poor, it is hot you can’t sleep well. Staff are nice. WiFi average speed. Location is good. Will not recommend this place to anyone unless they solve the issue on air conditioning and roaches.

WE FOUND TERMITES ON THE BED AND IN THE SHOWER THERE IS SOME LEAK IN THE CEILING- was not able to call maintenance to fix it because we were about to check out and didn’t want to stay more in this hotel. Also Front office was unapproachable and disrespectful to us. I usually book hotel whenever I’m in Abu dhabi and my friends usually visits me in my hotel room , Unfortunately with this hotel they stopped me and friends in an very unkind way telling me that I only booked for 2 people for that room, since We were 4 people going up my friends need to present their ID in the reception- I have no issues with this because they are just doing their job what I didn’t like was the approach. The guy approached us was rude and the tone of voice was a little bit harsh.I was disappointed with their customer service that even when they returned my friends’ IDs they didn’t smile nor speak to us. I felt discriminated with their action seeing how they interacted with other nationality.

To be fair the hotel was fine, room was nice enough , bed was comfortable , location really central, staff we're hospitable. The thing which left a really bad impression was a parking ticket directly outside the hotel itself on departure. The previous day I'd been instructed to park directly in front of the hotel from a guy in a valet outfit and he explained if I paid him it was okay to remain there for 24hrs.You can imagine my surprise to wake up to a parking fine. I raised the issue with staff in the morning and no one really wanted to take responsibility for it. I've messaged the hotel directly since then and had no response. If there's no parking available please be clear about it and communicate it properly. I stay in downtown hotels most weeks and I'm aware a few places take money on arrival and sort out the parking fee. I presumed this was a similar arrangement. Otherwise why even bother with a valet in the first place?

I've heard about the place from a friend that the massage was great , so I called for a booking, required a Thai lady unfortunately I can't remember the name , and the least I can tell she was awesome, she knew were it was hurting and she massaged my back exactly how I needed it to be done, definitely coming back . I recommend the big Thai lady.
