“Nice businesshotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

Hotel really accomodates well for business purposes. It is close to most important businesscenters in A.D. and close to the airport. Rooms are clean and very nicely decorated. Few minor comments is that the high speed wifi in the room, is not that high speed, even when you get premium package. You are better off using wifi in the lobby. My airco was always making the room 17 degrees cold, which is basically freezing cold. Food is ok but not superbe. Would not recommend it for tourists as it is far from the nice places to visit in Abu Dhabi. Overall a de ent business hotel!

Hi Wim1984, thank you for taking the time to post this review. Great to know you had a very successful business stay with us and that you enjoyed our rooms and features (nice photo of our infinity pool and its gorgeous illuminated olive trees). We are sorry to read that you could not enjoy our great high speed internet and apologize for the technical error with the temperature control of the A/C. These issues do of course not belong to a common situation in the hotel. With regards of the type of guest staying with us I have to point out that we also have a big number of tourist/ leisure visitors. This has to do with the fact that we are actually very close to some major attractions in Abu Dhabi. As an example the Grand Mosque is 5 minutes away by car, Yas Island with Ferrari World and the F1 circuit about 15 to 20 minutes. Golf Courses are within 10 to 15 minutes and beaches 20 minutes away. Besides this, the hotel itself offers a chilled and sociable ambient at the Splash Pool, with a stunning landscape inviting to full relaxation and a great entertainment at night time at the place to be in Abu Dhabi : Club So-Hi. Wim, I am sure we will be delighted to welcome you back soon to our hotel. Please do let us know when your plans bring you this way. Best wishes! Rainer

Loved the hotel. The design was wow. The rooms were well decorated. As a traveller the most important is the bed which was very comfy and the shower which was outstanding.
Very close to the exhibition centre.
The location is perfect as I was there for the exhibition which is directly opposite the hotel. Varierty of dining at the reception area.
I also ordered room service which was on time and I really enjoyed the meal.
I had a very nice and pleasant stay and will definitely use the hotel again.

I stay in ALOFT almost all week as I work in Abu Dhabi. The rooms are spacious, trendy and quite comfortable. I enjoy alot Relax @ 12 which is a nice outdoor/ indoor lounge with very nice Sushi. The staff in the hotel are quite helpful and make every effort to make your stay welcoming as much as possible.

I was previously only once in Aloft hotel in Bkk and even if It was nice hotel i found it very basic. Aloft AD looks a young brother of W hotel, not a step brother
Staff is very professional and kind and room design is very nice and modern.

I stayed here due to a conference at ADNEC, but independent of its perfect convenience for that, the experience was excellent. The hotel is efficient, clean, comfortable. Pool area and rooftop bar are big plusses, a much better than average gym, polite and efficient staff, Aloft rooms but somehow better / bigger than other Alofts. It's a bit out of the way of Yas Island or the Corniche, but easy cab rides away and also easy to the airport. I would certainly stay here again. Value for the price was very good.

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.

Hi Cap_Scarlet, thanks for taking the time to post this review and for choosing us to stay during the recent Formula 1 Grand Prix event. We were are all glad to read through your review and notice that you enjoyed your overall stay and that you particularly liked the size of the rooms, the gym, the quietness of our pool area and our food price and quality. Very important to mention the friendliness and efficiency of our staff which is obviously key to our success. I want to offer you my sincere apologies for our human error in informing you incorrectly about the breakfast which was indeed included in your rate. With regards to the present works in the surrounding areas, indeed the completion of Capital Centre is ongoing and this resulted in some challenges to reach the hotel. The detours are however well signposted now. Further to Capital Centre (which by the way when finished will be a stunning area with commercial, residential and culinary facilities), where the hotel is located, this is actually not at all outside Abu Dhabi, but in the main island, the area toward whole city is growth. As it is also known, regardless where you are staying in Abu Dhabi, you need a car unless you are planning to remain in the hotel. This is due to how the city is designed and how the points of interest are spread. I do hope that by taking this out it would actually do give you some joy indeed to visit us again as Aloft Abu Dhabi is known for having the great vibe for a weekend escape or for a successful business trip. We would all be looking forward to welcome you soon back. Best wishes! Rainer

I just spent 4 nights at Aloft Hotel near the Adnec exhibition centre : a very comfortable hotel away from the city centre, an ideal location if you are participating at an exhibition at Adnec.
The room, situated on the 7th floor with a view on the swimming pool, was big, clean, fitted with a spacious bathroom, a large bed, a flat screen and a convenient desk for work : Quite sober but more than enough for a business trip.
The hotel has a very nice swimming pool with many sun beds and a nice pool bar where you can have a snack at affordable price. The fitness centre near the pool is also very convenient with modern equipment.
Another unmisable spot is the bar on the roof of the hotel : a cosy atmosphere with wood, large sofas decoration. This lounge bar reminds a boat deck, the cosy atmosphere is ideal for a drink. Next to the bar, on the other side you will find a club where some parties with a DJ are organised at some nights of the week.
Overall the staff is very profesionnal and hempful, this is definetely a good 4* stars hotel service with reasonable rates, especally for Abu Dhabi.
The only negative point would be : there was no bathrobe and slippers in the room (I think there are in the suites rooms) the beauty products (cream, soaps, ...) could be better quality but these are just details ...

Room Tip: Take a room with a view on the pool
