“A tremendous experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

I stayed at the hotel in the beginning of March and from the moment we arrived; the staff took exceptional care of us. Gopal especially. Always a smile on his face. Always eager and enthusiastic to help. He is the epitome of what every traveler wants to experience. (especially after a twelve hour flight and two hour bus drive. ) Really, if you are staying in Abu Dhabi...make the Holiday Inn your first inquiry for availability. The staff, the facility, the rooms, lounges and restaurants...top notch, sterling...spectacular service.

I would fully recommend using this hotel again. The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, and will go out of their way to assist you. I would like to specifically single out Jana who works in the concierge, who has assisted me on several occasions, his customer service skills have been first class.

Additionally the hotel management have been extremely approachable and provided services that have greatly enhanced the group stay experience. The rooms are very comfortable and the standard of food has been to a high standard throughout my stay.

I'm a resident in Abu Dhabi , i took my friends for business lunch in Hubbly bubbly , actually all staff were so professional specially the reception(Mr. Haitham) as i had many clarifications and questions about the services and the rates. he was a great help for me, holiday inn is 4 stars hotels but the service look like 5 stars one, the service was really excellent and professional i really recommend you to test this experience.

It was a new experience at Abudhabi with very nice rooms and silent ambience. It is really good for visitors who do not like the crowd of the city. It was nice to go for an evening walk around the hotel

The hotel is very nice, really liked the room as it was new and clean and big, the staff also are very friendly and helpful, only the hotel location is far from the city centre, but very close to the hotel is the Big Mosque and you can reach there in few min. by taxi., hotel breakfast is very nice with a big variety, by night there is an arabic cafe so you can smoke shisha and watch the football

Hello Atef,

Thank you for your review.

Glad to see you have had a comfortable stay with us. Thank you for your compliments as well. We agree that we may appear far, but downtown is about 10 minutes from our hotel depending on traffic and the airport is 15 minutes away, giving us quite a central location. However, the Grand Mosque is definitely 5 minutes away and is ideal for sightseeing. Thank you for your appreciation towards Hubbly Bubbly, our shisha restaurant.

We hope to see you again.

Regards,
Philipp Economou
