“Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Good location in the sense that it is half way from Cornish to Yas Island, and both are 'a must' in Abu Dhabi :) Thus it is not expensive to pay a taxi fare regardless of where you're going (the centre, the beach, Yas, the mosque, Officers' Club or any other sight, or the airport for that matter).
If you're not interested in sightseeing, but only the beach and shopping, it might be smarter to pick one of the hotels closer to Cornish.
The hotel is a typical budget hotel. Rooms are clean, breakfast is well worth paying for, staff are kind and ready to help you at any time with any request.
Excellent wi-fi service ;)

We are working and living in Western Region of Abu Dhabi, most expats who are in oil and gas might know this part of Abu Dhabi. About 2 and 1/2 hours drive to and from Abu Dhabi. We booked this room for AED224 and it was fantastic price.

Location as mentioned by many, is far from Abu Dhabi city proper. Since we were with car so it was not an issue. Indeed this hotel is quite isolated, with nothing but trees and muddy lake or pond behind it. There is nearby ADNOC station though not that near by walking.

This could be suitable for those who are in long airport transit or en route to Dubai/Northern Emirates for one night rest. Close to Abu Dhabi Int. Airport and if you are driving, you already skipped Abu Dhabi city traffic.

The room is typical small European room. Clean and sufficient.Good bed, comfy pillow and duvet/quilt.

We checked in quite late and had early check out the next day. That pretty much means we had breezy check in and check out as we are the only guest at the lobby.

Hotel car park is available underground which is a bless for me. Having stayed in numerous Abu Dhabi and Dubai hotels, car park is one of my main criteria. Not all, especially the older hotels, are having their own car park.

Nice hotel. Small European style rooms.
Mattresses were very comfortable.
Excellent price but very far from the city and nothing in the vicinity of the hotel. If you're staying here because of the price you will spend the difference on cab fare to get anywhere.
We were visiting relatives who live in the area so not a problem for us.
Good buffet breakfast. If you're not on a B&B plan make sure you pay for breakfast at the lobby desk. It's 20 AED cheaper than in the restaurant.

We have been long term guests at ibis Abu Dhabi Gate, and we cannot be happier. We have renewed our work contract to stay on another year here in the middle east, and likewise renewed our contract to stay as long term guests at this hotel. After all the moving we've done as independent contractors, this is by far the first place we've stayed that truly feels like home. The staff is wonderful and always willing to help with a smile, and the facilities are amazing. The food and beverage manager, Mr. Rishmi, has been a blessing. Nothing is ever too much for him to handle for us, and he truly treats us as not just as guests, but as family members. We cannot stress how important this is when you live so far away from true family. We absolutely love it here, and we recommend it to anyone who is looking for comfort, stability and professionalism from a hotel that feels like home.

Room Tip: We live in the one bedroom apartment, and it's lovely.

Stayed at this hotel first week in November 2013 for the grand prix. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. mattresses superb! This hotel is joined to the novotel so you can use the facilities of both hotels. All free except the pool there is a charge for ibis guests to use the novotel pool. This is situated on the 3rd floor, you can still use the bar/restaurant attached to the pool free of charge. The food is excellent our stay was bed and breakfast. breakfast is buffet style with a wide variety on offer. All the restaurants offer a good selection at reasonable prices. We spent most evenings in the Gabbiano bar and restaurant. I must mention Nisham who is the head waiter/barman. He was brilliant. couldn't fault the service he gave us, he always had a smile and his service is second to none. He is an asset to the hotel. Not forgetting little Jam! she was never phased even when they were short staffed. A dynamic duo indeed!. Would definitely stay here again. you can see the grand mosque from here too.

Room Tip: think all rooms ok. we were on 12th floor so had a good view!

Not bad place to stay, but checkin for us was lenghty (get used to that in UAE, from car hire to hotel check in) Nothing bad to say about the place - clean, comfortable, but what impressed me the most was that i could get an omlette from the cafe at midnight and the Novotel in the same building had all its restaurants closed!
