We stayed here for a night because we signed up for a driving experience at the adjacent Yas Marina Circuit, and we were glad that we splurged (it was beyond our original budget) on the accommodations for the night.
This is a beautiful hotel, both in terms of the exterior as well as the interior. It is elegantly designed, and the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The only complaint we had for the “hardware” was the translucent doors and glass panels used for the bathroom. They may have been nice for couples on a romantic getaway, but slightly awkward for a pair of brothers, like in my case.
Our room came with a small balcony which opens up to a view of the circuit and marina, which was great. The view was, however, partially obscured by the panels/fins on the outside of the building. We guessed that the panels/fins could be designed to deflect the noise from the race cars on the circuit, but we were not sure if we were right. What we knew, however, was that although they looked good from the outside, but from the inside, they were a little bit of a hindrance as it obscured the view from many of the rooms.
Service in the hotel was good. Everywhere in the hotel we went, people were friendly and helpful. Staff members tried, whenever possible, to engage in friendly chats with guests and to offer tips on the places we were planning to visit. It certainly made us feel welcome, and feel the warmth in the hospitality, and that not everything was simply about business for the staff.
This is definitely not the cheapest hotel around, but if one is willing to just splurge a little for a good experience, this place is definitely worth considering!
