“Absolutely great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Our stay was really comfortable. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the view from the hotel was very nice. The swimming pool was very nice as well. The rooms were cleaned nicely and had items you might have forgotten like toothbrushes, combs, razors, etc.
We also like the fact that they have scales in bathrooms, and the good quality hot drinks you can make. They also had free coffee and dates all the time in the lobby.

It was a great stay. Although they don't have big bathrooms, they service competes with the best 5 star hotels

Exceptionally impressive is an understatement.. From checkin in, breakfast, laundry service, room service they don't fail to deliver 5* service around the clock. Special thanks to front office team for the big smile u all have. Keep it up!!My most remarkable note would certainly have to be (( I am coming back only to stay at the Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi )).. It's all about the attitude and the welcoming sincere smile in this hotel.

I have no idea about how good the rooms are, but I know that the restaurants and the bars are excellent. It is is 4 star with 5 star service - and not the prices. The happy hour is great and the food is excellent. Go Holiday Inn.

Location wise, it is something in between, airport and down town, near ADNEC.

Concierge service and front desk are doing hard to make the guest happy.
The front desk even able to keep the shower at gym available for me at 22.30 before my departure to airport.

The internet wi-fi is easy to access for free and fast connection, anywhere in all area of hotel premises.

Room is just all right on all aspect, everything is working properly. Receive a free kitkat chocolate daily.

Concierge is super efficient in helping guest for useful information and to arrange transportation, either hotel car or regular taxi.
Concierge people are trained to have a good skill in communication, pro-active, not even to be asked.

Well done Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi, keep it this nice modern Holiday Inn, and its people.

Room Tip: You may ask room with ocean view at the distance

Room good size, comfortable. Staff pleasant and efficient, bar was great upstairs got a bit dark, smokey and noisy later on.. had food in the bar which was ok, due to time constraints we hired a car and driver to get us around Abu Dhabi and Dubai...excellent.. New all the oil and gas companies.. If you need a driver ask Isaac the concierge for Cecillia she is briiliant.

Room Tip: Ask for a west facing room with a sea view!,, the hotel is 30 minutes from the centre of Abu dbabi

The employees I dealt with were helpful and welcoming.
My room was a nice size, good furnishings, and good toiletries.
There are multiple dining options.
I thought the breakfast had many options and good quality.
I also enjoyed dining on the top floor at the bar/lounge. It's a nice ambiance there.
I also like the Hooka Lounge. I felt like I could do something different for fod/beverage each night of the trip.
I went to look at the pool on the roof. It's kind of small, but then again it's probably more of a business hotel then a resort/vacation hotel. I wouldn't pick this one for a pool focused stay, for anything else it's great and I will plan to go back.

I wish to express to all the staff and crew of the Holiday Inn who were involved in making our Naw-Rúz celebration a success and joy for its participants our heartiest appreciation and gratitude. This is in spite of the large number of attendees which reached 180. Everyone felt welcome, comfortable and relaxed, both adults and children. The food and beverage selection was very appropriate and it was so convenient that the venues, where the food was kept for adults and children, were segregated. The waiters were so courteous and did an excellent job. The re-printing and distribution of the night's program, which was done on the spot, went beyond your call of duty and you should be commended for it.

Your efforts impacted many people’s lives. Your help made Naw-Rúz an event which the adults, youth and especially the children will look back upon and have very fond memories. I greatly appreciate the work you did to make the Naw-Rúz party a success.

In truth, it was a lovely celebration as a result of the beautiful hotel atmosphere which embraced everyone. We look forward to enjoying similar functions in the future at your lovely establishment.


With loving regards

Sincerely,
Naghmeh Khalili
