We spent one week at the Sofitel and found our stay quite enjoyable on the whole. We arrived at 9am and checked in, however our room was not available until 3pm despite regular checks with the front desk. We have never experienced this before in a 5* hotel in the Middle East (and we have been to many). The room was fine, no complaints there and we had access to the Club Lounge. The lounge we found was too small for purpose, was always full and the food selection poor. The service was very good and the staff all very pleasant. The pool is a non-entity, the design of which was a disaster as the sun never appears (but we were informed that it makes an appearance late afternoon for a short time). The location is excellent for walking on the Corniche and in the many delightful parks. Expected better from a Sofitel.

- Opened in the first quarter 2012, the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche (part of Capital Plaza building) is ideally situated in the heart of the city, close to the seafront and the business and financial center. It enjoys a privileged location on Corniche Road, one of the most prestigious district. The maritime centre Port Zayed, the Souk, famous for its rugs and Dhow Harbour, home to the traditional transport and fishing boats which still take to the waters of the Arabian Gulf, are all a short distance from the hotel. The hotel offers all the services of a world-class French establishment, blending its origins with the best of the Oriental influences: butler service and executive lounge access (Club Millesime) for club rooms and suites, and the famous MyBed concept and Bose wave in all rooms. Each of the rooms offer breathtaking views over city and Arabian Gulf. Additionally, the hotel offers 3 signature restaurants and 3 bars, a pool, a spa and wellness space and 9 meeting rooms. A ballroom can also welcome up to 1000 visitors and therefore host any kind of events. ... more less
