I would highly recommend this hotel to all my friends and family because our stay was such a pleasant experience. From when we entered the hotel we had only the best service and attention to detail were never missed ,from making us feel welcome ,to even choosing your own knife to use when eating a steak! The friendliness of the staff made us feel as if we were amongst friends. This hotel offers more than most of the other 5 star hotels in the city.

Dear Daniel Jacobus Brooks,

Thank you for choosing Southern Sun Abu Dhabi on your recent visit to the capital. I see that you really enjoyed our facilities, including the fact that one can choose very special steak knives when dining in The Foundry Restaurant. I am also glad to read that you enjoyed the service delivered by our friendly Associates.

I look forward to having you back very soon.

Best regards,

This chic yet contemporary hotel and its professional yet friendly employees managed to not only meet my expectations but completely exceed them in each and every single criteria (room, service, facilities, food, etc.). Thank you for an exceptional experience that i'd happily recommend.

The staff and the services that were provided were simply, marvelous. I enjoyed my weekend of R&R and wish I could stay longer. The property is new but the service provided was first class and I have stayed in "more" than my fair share of hotels within the UAE. I would like to give special recognition to the staff at The Foundry...they were golden, especially Sandra, the Chef de partie and Hana, who was such an attentive waitress. I, highly, recommend that anyone looking for a quick getaway within the city and an eye's view from the corniche that they at least give this hotel a try. You will NOT REGRET IT!!!

Dear mmlandry34,

Thank you for trying us out for your R&R and I am certainly very happy to see that we managed to make this precious time for you a memorable one and especially, two of our many stars Sandra and Hana in The Foundry restaurant. Without such individuals we would not be where we are.

I hope that next time you will manage to stay longer and I look forward to seeing you again.

I stayed there for 3 nights for a conference with 14 People. Everything was exactly as it should be. My room on the 15th floor was clean, spacious, comfortable. There was a shower, a bath tub (from which you could see the rest of the room); a seperate toilet and a separate closet. WIFI was working well. The pool on top of the building (27th floor) was spotlessly clean with a nice view. The Steak Restaurant offered steaks of premium quality. The staff was very helpful, frendly and polite. The Hotel is from a South African Hotel Group who is now starting to provide the comfort of their Hotels in Middle East. Will be glad to stay there again.
