Reviewed 19 April 2012

Have stayed in this hotel a few times since its' recent opening. We have a very good corporate rate. It is modern without being too 'contemporary' and is in a great location. The rooms are very nicely appointed and comfortable.A good range of TV channels and a nice TV. More importantly there is tea/coffee and a kettle.
My only niggle with the place is what I have been telling the manager since the day it opened - the lift call buttons are not linked. This means that everyone pushes both buttons and the call is not cleared on the other button when the lift arrives. This means that your lift constantly stops at an empty floor because the other lift already served it. On a 15 floor property it is a pain when the hotel is busy.

Staff are great and very helpful. Do not be fooled by the apparent lack of parking; the valet guys are excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main airport road are quieter but it is not really an issue as the glazing is quite good.

I will share with the respective departments your appreciation regarding the qualty of services delivered by our team and the enthousiams demonstrated by our employees.
Looking forward welcoming you again at Centro Al manhal Abu Dhabi.

Beautiful hotel. Well appointed. Great buffets. Better if you can work out a deal with the room. Not much close by, but a frre van ride to and from Dubai.

This hotel is located in the center of Abu Dhabi and is quite new. There is no loud disco in the hotel. There is a modest lounge. The rooms are clean with all normal amenities. The staff are polite and helpful. The buffet breakfast is excellent. I would certainly recommend it.

This is a new hotel so many of the teething problems are just being sorted out. There is currently no bar nor room mini bar since the license for the hotel has not been approved. Rotana hotel - notThere is no porter service available and generlaly the services are poor. This is a normally a mark of quality - but this hotel is an exception. The rooms are small and below UK code for movement. The services are at best basic. The breakfast is basicand cold and the location of the hotel is poor. There are so many great hotels in Abu Dhabi including the Sheraton, Merdian and Hilton that this three star (Going on two) hotel is not worth a mention.

This is a hotel without services - whether it is room cleaning, early morning call or hotel directions then this is not the hotel for you. A basic two star room with a resonable bed ans a nosiy lift is all you can expect. There are no decent bars or restauarants nearby so with regret you wll need to get a taxi which is far from straghtforward.

If you really want a three star I would suggest the Howard J is a better bet. If you have to stay here I would suggest you ask for a room away from the lift.

Room Tip: Keep clear of the lift - the sound is continuous.
