Well, the title says it: great hotel, good bed, very nice spa (take a massage!), good breakfast. What more do you want? I booked a one hour massage, the therapist (as she was called) was very competent and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The spa is nice, there is a nice fitness room as well.
The hotel has a restaurant, which is without atmosphere, but there is a bar/restaurant next to the swimming pool on the top floor. There, excellent, really excellent meat dishes are served, cooked to perfection. And they have happy hour... The parking spaces around the hotel are paying, but your car is parked in the hotel parking at your request.

Dear dutchfarmeress,

Thank you for your comments.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and managed to try most of our facilities.
I see you found our Sura restaurant to be lacking in atmosphere, I think it might have been on a quite night where our Karaoke rooms weren't buzzing.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Best regards,
Kamal Fakhoury

We were upgraded, as it was out first time in abu dhabi, luxury room, kingsize bed! The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Many welcoming smiles! Absolutely fantastic place to stay - close to Abu dhabi mall and big bus tour (hop on hop off bus tour) bus stop. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms are sound proof, we had a corner suite, with lots of light and a large spacious bathroom

Recently stayed here on a 3 night stopover. Was initially drawn to this hotel by the outstanding value for money but then saw that it was a top rated hotel as well which is a bonus. It really was perfect, the room was really big, new furnishings and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great with a huge range of options. Really close to the Abu Dhabi Mall and Bus Station so taxis really easy at only about 10 dirhams to most places. There is a little bakery and supermarket very close by as well. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Luxurious room, comfortable, cosy and with all the amenities included. Staff helpful and kind, restaurant offering a great atmosphere for a lovely dinner. I had a great surprise, as I got upgraded to a better room without asking for it!

The hotel is well lighted & clean, doesn't hide any defects. Room is spacious & well laid out. I definitely like my stay. Didn't have the time to visit the pool and the vertical bar, so I need to come back. Add to that I met the very gracious Manager Sheryll & receptionist Millie.
Kudos to all the staff of this nice hotel.
