We stayed for three nights in the hotel on a recent trip to the Formula 1.
First thing's first when we were there there was a huge amount of construction work going on which meant that the exits from the motorway around the hotel were closed. I defy anyone to drive straight to the hotel without driving around various side roads three or four times with the hotel tantalisingly in the distance! Oh, and beware of the speed bumps on seemingly main (ish) roads.
The hotel is a little way outside Abu Dhabi and you really need a car to get around. Abu Dhabi itself is quite easy to navigate but signposting is generally pretty poor.
I was somewhat annoyed with the hotel as having booked and prepaid a rate including breakfast they subsequently claimed breakfast was not included. Annoying. So make sure you check what is printed on your confirmation. Breakfast (as in all hotels) is relatively expensive (at 85 AED or 100 after taxes and service).
The hotel itself is pretty decent rooms are a good size and there is a nice gym and pool. Also, depsite all the construction work, pretty quiet. In addition despite the cost of breakfast the rest of the food is a fair price.
Staff are friendly and efficient.
I wouldn't avoid the hotel if I were to come to Abu Dhabi again but then again I wouldn't be jumping for joy. Only average.
