We booked a two night stay at the Novotel, and from experiences around the globe staying with Accor had a reasonable idea of what to expect. Rooms are fairly spacious with views of lagoon or partial desert and reclaimed land under development. It's fairly new and the hotel public areas large and capable of dealing with numerous people. This is where you begin to feel a little ripped off. The Novotel normally a 4 star is located right next door to the ibis normally a 3 star and yet the guests at both share the same breakfast hall the Same pool and the same bar pool, which invariably leaves you feeling slightly duped. Rooms are a good standard, and well furnished and staff were attentive and helpful. Location wise you will need a car as Abu dhabi city is some 10 to 15 minutes away to the corniche and whilst the hotel does have a pool you have to be up with the sparrows to gain any sunshine as the pool deck is in the shade at this time of year from around 10 till 1700, so in summer when the temperature is at its highest I was told its very hot, suggesting design flaw on hotel angles to the sun.
