On the plus-side: the 3 bedroom apartment was great and very spacious.

Downsides were: the sofabed in the lounge area was incredibly uncomfortable to sleep on. Breakfast was very average for the price.

But all in all a good stay. Would definitely recommend.

Now back here since January and getting better all the time. Potentially this could become home for a few years.
Service levels are excellent in all areas but I must admit I don't use the cafe. Not that's a reflection on the cafe but being resident I have lots of choices.
Location is great with Metro right outside and taxis cheap and always waiting for hire.
View from my 43rd floor appartment is nice. Burj kalifa from the lounge and Jumeira, QEII and SZR from the three bedrooms.
Extremely clean and quiet. Reception can get busy at check-in / check-out times especially during local holidays but no great problem.
Gym and pool seem never to be crowded.

We had an upgrade to a 3 bedroom apartment on arrival (booked a 2 bedroom apartment) which was greatly appreciated and very clean and spacious. The staff were polite and efficient. It is a great location on Sheikh Zayed road with a supermarket nearby. The metro is directly outside which is cheap and easy to use. Taxis are also cheap an readily available out the front. I would recommend a stay at this Hotel.

Honestly when I read the reviews and saw the pictures of the hotel, we were expecting a decent looking, but since we wanted to stay on Sheikh Zayed Road hotel it suited us . It turned out to be better than we expected it to be. Great location, Public transport was a at your doorstep ( Taxi & metro ).. As I was with my,wife and one more couple ( close fiends ), we had opted for a two bedroom apartment. The master bedroom was great, but the second bedroom did not have an attached bathroom ( it was across in the passage ) . That was the only hitch for us. It also had a powder room in the living room. Staff at the Reception, House keeping, Bell Desk, Security and the Restaurant was helpful and friendly. Never ate at the hotel so cannot comment on the food. If you compare its tariff with other hotels in the vicinity in the 4 star category its a GREAT DEAL. If only the second bedroom had an attached bathroom ( since this was important in our case ), would have been perfect and scored a 9/10 but because of this shortcoming would give it a 8/10. All in all we have come back with happy memories with a desire to go back soon.

Room Tip: Back facing rooms have seaview & more peaceful

THE nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, the hotel itself practically made the holiday. We flew from Dublin to Abu Dhabi on Etihad about forty mins away from Dubai but fear not Etihad provide a free shuttle service from the airport to Dubai and it leaves you right outside Chelsea Tower we didn't realize this till we got to Abu Dhabi (the shuttle doesn't go anywhere else jut Abu Dhabi airport to Chelsea Tower). With the time difference we were quite early but the hotel staff made a call and let us check in early about 8.00am we had mentioned to the staff that it was our first time in the UAE and I think they upgrade us because the apartment was beyond amazing we were on the 43 floor there were 3 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and 2 bathrooms and the views from the room were some of the best I've ever seen from a hotel. It was so good we are afraid to go back because our expectations are so high. Good location aswell there is an elevated train system running up and down takes you to a lot of places goes to DXB airport aswell i presume most people would be coming from there rather than Abu Dhabi.

We recently stayed at the Chelsea Tower on a visit from Oman. The location is quite good as is near metro stop and has some eating possibilities near by. There are a lot of apartment and only a tiny reception area so expect it to be crowded.

Rooms are ok. Could be cleaner but they are a bit old so somewhat worn. But it must be the only place I have had to pay for ice! Not expensive but I guess it's the principle.

Pool is ok and was quiet when we were there even though the hotel was full.
