“Some nice features but inconvenient overall”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

The multi-building layout is inconvenient in the hot weather.
The basement apartments are absolutely unacceptable.
I was very surprised (negatively so) that there were no elevators for lifting heavy suitcases up as many as three levels.
The Lebanese restaurant was outstanding.

second time staying at the hotel (checked out this morning). usually stay the one night and must say, it's been a really nice experience. love the feel of not staying in your bog-standard hotel, very boutique feel to it - very small village atmosphere.
staff are really nice and helpful. definitely would stay there the once a week i'm in town, especially with the good rates for summer prices. wonder if they have better rates for weekend stay??....

Second of many visits to come to this location. Convenient to all downtown destinations. Staff service is superbly friendly and accomodating - you want it? Just ask (and many times you don't even need to ask!). Individual roof top pool for each suite of rooms (in addition to beautiful main pool area) is great feature when a quick dip is all that's required. Friday brunch covers 3 floors and features dishes from 3 top notch restaurants located on premise, all expertly executed.

One to one reminds me of an Olympic village - secure, comfortable, great food and service, and nice social surroundings with pool, excellent gym and fitness staff, and overall just very hospitable. I stay here every month for weeks on end - and am glad I do, because I have other choices but none of them make me feel as "at home" as the One to One. Their business conference facilities are great too. Minutes away from the Corniche, Al Wadha Mall or the Mosque, it's a great location all the way around.

It’s a very nice hotel with super-friendly staff that doesn’t know the word “no”. Anything we needed, was doable without any hassle. One of the managers, although we didn’t see him, gave my husband his cufflinks to use for the day. I highly recommend this hotel, or village rather. Its one of a kind and a special place to stay when travelling to Abu Dhabi! As someone mentioned below, stay there now before it really gets discovered.

I really liked one to one. It didn't have the typical hotel feel. It felt more like a community, if that makes any sense. I like the curio shop. It was one of my favorite things on sight. I tried 2 of the hotel resturants. The buffet was better than a regular buffet, as I am usually not a buffet fan I was pleased with this one. Staff were attentive, food was fresh and really great. My room was spacious and beautiful. I ordered room service and was pleasantly surprised by the quick delivery. My favorite thing is the garden. I would stay at one to one again. The only downside is that the area feels a little remote but friends of mine that travelled with me disagreed.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Your positive feedback is well appreciated. Indeed, we pride ourselves with our buffet. Great variety and good value for money. Our gift shop, U-Shop is quite popular and also attracts a decent amount of non-hotel residents looking for quirky gift items. As for location, we are proud to be one of the first hotels to move into the Salam Street Area - which has now evolving into becoming the next business hub of Abu Dhabi. With the nearby Salam Street Tunnel as well as the 11st Street Bridge near completion (by end of 2010) , our location will officially be considered "central". We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Best regards, Rabih Feghali - Hotel Manager

Nice rooms-quite simple but modern. The premium rooms however turned out to be below ground level so no natural daylight-woke up feeling we were in a dungeon. Reception were however very helpful and moved us next day to a suite above ground at no extra cost.

Best bits were the pool side sports club area (although you need to walk outside a few metres to enter the pool/sport area)- very friendly, active outside bar/restaurant with shisha, bar food or buffet and live music. Clearly popular with people who live near by as well as hotel guests.

The hotel was OK for taxis to find but is a little away from everwhere which has positive and negatives.given AD traffc. But found taxis easy to get or a hotel car which is about the same price as Al Ghazal. Breakfast was fine-not up to the standard of somewhere like the Sheraton (whereas prices are) and the food at the Lebanese restaruant was good.

All in all a nice idea but not sure I would stay there again

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your overall positive review of our hotel. I wanted take this opportunity to clarify the issues you had during your stay.

Regarding the Premium Room, I can see how you would feel that the room is below ground level, but in fact it is at ground level - you go up a flight of stairs, then go down another flight of stairs on the other side of the villa, which brings you back to where you started – at ground level. I do agree, that the Premium Room has more of a private/quiet/secluded feel to it - a feature that a lot of our Business guests prefer after a long day's work, especially since it is our largest room category with ample work and lounging areas (39 square meters). I do agree, however, that if you prefer a little more sunlight, the other room/suite categories would be more appropriate.

As for the breakfast comments, I wish you had been more elaborate with your comments. Our breakfast happens to be revered amongst our regular guests and if you read some of the other reviews, some guests actually rave about it. Therefore, I am inclined to assume that what you had experienced was an isolated incident.

I sincerely hope that you can give us the opportunity to make it up to you. Please contact me personally should your travels take you to Abu Dhabi in the near future. Kind regards, Rabih Feghali - Hotel Manager.
