“Great Hotel near Abu Dhabi Mall with a cheap breakfast!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I stayed 3 nights in this great hotel. Very nice staff. We needed an extra bed. It was rather hard.
We got upgraded so that was very nice. The location is great. We were near Abu Dhabi Mall and got on the hop on hop off bus. Best way to see all the sights!
Taxis are cheap so we took on to a great restaurant Lebanees Mill.

My son and I stayed at the Al Manzel for a long weekend as a base during the Formula 1 (as all of the hotels on Yas Island were booked or too expensive).

As an F1 base it worked really well. Taxis are plentiful and cheap (around AED80, £14, to the circuit) so we didn’t bother with the buses that apparently went from the nearby Mall. Getting back was no problem either as they had fields full (literally) of taxis waiting after the concerts and you could save the 17AED ‘event’ pick up surplus if you got the free shuttle to one of the car parks where more taxis awaited. The only problem we had is that drivers were not always aware of the location of the hotel so taking a small map or having one on the phone helped.

The hotel wasn’t in the most picturesque of areas in terms of the quality of surrounding facilities / buildings but from what we saw of Abu Dhabi it seemed fairly typical and it always felt safe. It did have a few bars (the 49ers bar for example) and a KFC and other food outlets nearby too if that is what you fancy after a day at the races!

Another negative was the cost of the wifi (so much we didn’t bother). The breakfast too wasn’t the best we’ve had but on the positive side it was served by very helpful, friendly staff.

That is it for negatives though. For the price paid this hotel was a real bargain. The staff were as good as you get, always helpful and very friendly with a real emphasis on service. Our ‘standard’ room was much bigger than expected for the price paid too, with 2 bathrooms, a large separate sitting room, a fridge, cooker, safe, iron … in short, a well-equipped, clean and comfortable place to stay. To add to that there was a small outdoor pool area and gym at the top of the hotel, both clean and well staffed.

In summary then, this hotel had a few minor negatives but for the price paid and for the service we received it was well worth the money. We would certainly return there if in Abu Dhabi.

We stayed for 3 nights in an executive one bedroom apartment. Checked in at 1am with no issues. Staff promptly delivered a crib to our room for our baby. The apartment was large and clean. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and water, tea and coffee was refilled daily.
Roof top pool was nice but small. Good breakfast. Very friendly staff. Easy walk to the mall.
Would definitely go back if I was in AD again.

I stayed in this hotel around June into September 2013, at least I spent about 3 weeks every time I come in town.
Perfect location, downtown area, very helpful and friendly staff.
As a long term guest, after my first visit and know some of the friendly staff, it made me feels like home. It is also plus for me as some of the staff speaks Bahasa Indonesia.

Room are very big and its fully furnished also provide you kitchenette (if you'd like to cook). Most of the time I prefer to have room service as they have special daily set menu which is good deal.
Don't worry about Laundry, as every room (even the studio room) has their own washing machine.
Close with the famous Abu Dhabi mall (about 5-10 mins walk), also some places in the downtown.

Super duper location :). You will find many authentic and cool restaurants, and of course the typical fast food chains are also very close. The biggest mall is also reachable within 5 minutes (walking). Rooms are very big, so the bathroom. Sepcial living area and a small kitchenette for a very reasonable price.
Once you enter the lobby you can smell cigarettes, as it is very smoker-friendly.
Would go there again anytime.
