“Excellent Base for Business”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

I stayed at L Arabia Hotel Apartments in October for 5 nights and it is a very comfortable hotel with excellent facilities. I was a bit concerned as previous reviewers had said there was poor wifi in a lot of rooms.
I had this problem. However, the reception manager was brilliant, first bringing a cable to plug into my laptop and when that didn't work, he brought a modem up into my room and plugged it direct into the socket at no charge.
The apartment rooms were spacious and well stocked and the staff were friendly and courteous.
The apartment is above a shopping mall and the lift takes you directly down to it at level 3.
There is a food court there with a choice to suit everyone from Macdonalds, Pizza, chinese, kebabs and an Applebees restaurant right next to the lift entrance.
I also dined once in the hotel restaurant and had a soup starter with a steak meal with a soft drink and finished with a coffee for about 15GBP.
It is also convenient for the airport (15-20 minutes by taxi) and cost 75 UAED.
All in all, a good value apartment with facilities exceeding expectations.

Room Tip: Ensure you ask for wifi and they will sort it out. If you get a taxi from the airport, ensure you ge...

Very nice apartments plenty of room , nicely furnished . Ideal location just outside of abu dhabi near the airport . Very quiet lovely drive into abu dhabi , right next to the labour camp and on the outskirts of mussahfa . Lulu supermarket and mall underneath , brilliant for all my shopping needs.......spent 3 weeks in march 2009

Room Tip: get a room looking out over highway 28 on the 4th floor away from the niose of the mall .

Having stayed here for several months, traveling from the US, let me offer the following - If your expectations are for a reasonable 3 star level of service, you will be happy. The place is ideal for a business traveler, and offers a comfortable, homely stay. The place is well maintained generally, problems are fixed fairly quickly, and is clean with no hint of mustiness, or age (both would have merited a disqualification).

Other positives include access to the attached mall - large grocery store, several coffee shopts, eating options, banks, and so on. The staff are responsive, very courteous, and eager to serve.

However - there are negatives - the gym is almost always either poorly maintained or under repair. It is small and attached to a swimming pool. All this makes for an unpleasant visit to the gym. The internet connection is stupendously slow, for anyone used to typical US hotel connection speeds. No real lobby or atrium to speak of. And the view is dismal, if you care about such things.

Hence, overall, a high recommendation with caveats.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor and away from the mall facing side - you can hear music from the restaurant u...

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The furnishings are modern and generally in good repair, although I did have trouble with some of my room lighting not working. My room was a little chilly in the morning during my January visit, but fine the rest of the day and evening. I don't believe my room had heating, but perhaps it isn't considered necessary in this warm location. I found the food in the hotel restaurant not to be appealing to my American tastes, although it was of good quality and nicely prepared. However, since the hotel is connected with the very modern and upscale Mazyad Mall, there are a number of American restaurants available there such as Applebee's, McDonald's, Subway, Baskin Robbin's, and Dunkin' Donuts. The service at the hotel was friendly and the people were very helpful and attentive to my needs.
