“Cool building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Nice, large room with amazing bathroom... Rain head shower and soaker tub. Comfy bed. Nice breakfast, not included. Pretty pool area. Nice, but small gym. Quiet except elevator dinging. Straight shot to airport makes convenient. Away from weekend crowds is great.

Probably one of the most problematic hotel stays ever, however all of the issues were resolved and that's what makes the difference between a good and a great hotel, the staff cared enough to get problems resolved and I am sure have learnt lessons. This hotel is in a great location in terms of it's on island just, but is close enough to town attractions as well as off island attractions such as Yas. We've been to the Capital Gate about four times for brunch and drinks and we elected to start this first Mothers Day the same with Brunch, which was personal and great. Despite some issues with check in which meant a room upgrade the room was well laid out, functional, spacious and comfortable and the views across about seven embassies as well as the west coast with their palaces are amazing. My 9 month son and I used the infinity pool whilst his mother was pampered with a massage, which she says is the best she's had in abu dhabi and we certainly enjoyed the pool on the 19th floor with stunning views across the ADNEC area of the city. Breakfast was plentiful, varied and enjoyable eating outside. Will we be back? not sure is the answer, we have joked that we might make it an annual Mothers Day visit, but after our complaining - they may not want us back :)

The Hyatt Capital Gate is a beautiful building that leans at an amazing 18 degrees! Typical of Hyatt hotels at this tier, the building and rooms are modern, comfortable, and well appointed.

From entering the building at ground level and taking the elevator to get to the main lobby on the 18th floor, you can already feel you’re in a special space.

Because the building leans at 18 degrees, from the lobby to get to the room on the floors above, you use a different elevator bank that’s offset from the elevator bank that goes from the ground floor to the main lobby.

The pool and gym is located on the 19th floor with wonderful views in all directions.

A beautiful building with beautiful rooms and excellent service, if you’re staying in Abu Dhabi, it’s hard to go wrong at the Hyatt Capital Gate.

It is a beautiful exterior structure and the interior is just as marvelous. With the hotel reception on the 18th floor, you know you are in for a treat. The room is spacious and the view is spectacular. I had to work near Massafuh Port and it was extremely convenient. Will definitely stay here again.

i wont lie if i say that Hyatt is my preferred brand and if i have a choice i always go for it. There are few reasons for it and Hyatt Capital Gate is a perfect example. 1. Less is more. Modern and simple, yet warm and stylish design. You recognize it by every detail. 2. Service is exactly what you wishing for. Especially its very appreciated in the UAE where you rarely meet a proactive staff that understand what you are saying and willing to help or find a solution, without so called "mamsir' attitude. Hyatt staff listen, responds immediately and understand the request from the first word. Well done. 3. Breakfast is all you need. The view is fantastic. If you are lucky with the weather, grab the seat at the terrace and enjoy. 4. Pool is pretty good too. Quite busy, but big enough for expected amount of guests.

Will be definitely back there and happy to recommend to everyone.

Booked in here for two nights
Because the whole place is only two years old it is very well kept and well looked after
Good points:
Good sleeping quality
Good choice and quality at breakfast
Nice design of the bathroom
Good English speaking staff (High rate of European staff members)
Negativ: it is in the middle of nowhere, it takes you about 30 min to downtown Abu DAHBI
Would go there again

Thank you for your visit and staying with us at the Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, I am glad to read you have enjoyed your stay with us.
It is indeed that we are not located in the city center, yet in easy reach of the main attractions and corniche area between 20-30 by taxi at a cost of about 9 Euro.

It would be a pleasure to welcoming you back again to our hotel in the near future, eventually to meet you in person.

I had stayed here for a night, and the hotel is beautiful. The building itself is unusual. Next to the National Exhibition centre, so very useful if you have an event.

There is a Carrefour coming soon nearby, and a Costa but for dinings you have the hotel dining options, which is very good, or the nearby hotels. Otherwise, you have to take taxis to go downtown, which could cost you about 30-50 dirhams, depending on where you want to go.

The lobby is on the 18th Flr. I was confused about it, but guessed I had to go up.

Love the room, and the clever paneling. The bathroom is awesome!!!! The staff are efficient and friendly. I really enjoyed the breakfast which was part of my package.Fresh bread, and wonderful selections. If weather permits, you could sit outside on the 18 flr, and enjoy the view.

Will come back again even though it is a bit far away from downtown.
