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 ;)
