“A bit like a 1960s Moscow hotel”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went for dinner and could not believe how dull and oppressive this hotel was. No atmosphere, very expensive and very unfriendly

“You have to get the 24 K gold cappucino”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Huge hotel, most impressive. The gold flecks on the cappuccino was something to experience. Wanted to try the camelccino but can,t drink that much coffee at one time. We had the date pudding which was way to "egg" tasting, and the carrot cake which was very dry! So, all in all, the food was not worth what they charge . And they charge a lot. Pass by the gold vending machines.

“For absolute luxury on a short Abu Dhabi visit, perfect.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great place to stay for Abu Dhabi. Close to malls and beach. Butler, assistance, courtesy, interior all fantastic. Restaurant just sensational buffet ever seen. 14 mins walk to reception though from room. Enormous. Expensive but luxury.
