This was my first business trip to Abu DHabi and I was not responsible for booking the hotel. Unfortunately this hotel was not what t seems. Parking in down town Abu Dhabi is not the best and the hotel has only very limited spaces. The concierge was more than happy to help out, but for a fee of AED30 per...

This was my worst Hotel I have ever stayed in the World. The reception lady was amazingly terrible. The whole system in this hotel is a failure. The only person on the staff to earn a good mark was the bellboy. I was forced by my hiring company to stay there for five nights during my in processing for new...

- Reception staff has no concept of receiving guests. When I arrived, I am waiting to be checked in and they look at me as if I was not welcome. One of them was just sitting there and failed to offer help. - Room is big, but poor lighting, had very difficult time with WiFi, and could not do some...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. Location is good, room was very damp and poor lighting made it very depressing. Several bars are there in the hotel, music is noisy and affects sleep. Bars seem to be pickup joints.

It was early morning and still dawn when I arrived at the AD airport. After the driver came picking me up, I had no idea where he would take me cause I was too sleepy. Bear in my mind, I had awaken in front of one hotel then I dropped off the car. It was 3 AM but I still...

I had the misfortune to stay at Howard Johnson Diplomat Hotel for several weeks whilst working in Abu Dhabi. It is a very poor hotel, there is loud music playing from the 12 bars until the early hours, some nights until 4am, making sleep difficult. There are prostitutes all over the place. The food is bad. Stay somewhere else if...

I am an easy traveller, happy to stay in 3 star hotels and have done so around the world in over 40 countries. This was by far the worst service I have ever received. When we booked online were booked 2 double bed room, free parking and free breakfast for a standard amount. Upon arriving there we were shouted at...

The Hotel is located in a convenient location with excellent facilities suiting my budget. The stay was almost all like staying at home or like staying in a serviced apartment with homely atmosphere. The place is well connected by all means of transportation and near to Abu Dhabi Corniche

i have stayed in the HJ hotel on a number of previous occasions, as have colleagues of mine. Previous experiences were not bad but I stopped over in the HJ hotel enroute from the UK. It started off badly when there was no record of my hotel booking (I ad to trawl through emails to find the online booking confirmation)....
