“superb hotel, lovely city.”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

I had the pleasure of being able to enjoy this hotel for some six weeks in March and April. My time there was extremely memorable, the staff particularly helpful and the food just totally delicious. Modern and well appointed, the hotel is a little out from town, but taxi to anywhere in town is a maximum of 25-30 AED, which is only about a fiver. With four bars to choose from, you are always able to get a drink, especially welcome by the pool. The gym is extremely well equipped with free weights, rowers, runners, cross trainers and bikes. Air conditioned throughout, it is very comfortable. Breakfast in the restaurant is a delight, with freshly cooked omelettes, poached eggs etc being no problem.
Abu Dhabi is one of the better Arab countries I have visited, raising my opinion of that part of the world. It is green, well groomed and with plenty bars and eateries, it is well worth a visit. If you do, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the pool are lovely, however, be prepared to attend the large pool parties or be...

I was there during the new year break and received an exclusive pamper from the staff. The hotel is just connected to the convention center.

Parking: Very hard to find as they were having a construction at the steet by the entrance.

Room: In a good size and well-equipped with everything you need. The beds were comfy, the tv was big, and the internet was smooth.

Check in and check out: I received a really good care and good recognition as an spg member. The process was fast.

Breakfast and Dinner: I did have both breakfast and dinner here. The taste was good and the price was reasonable. I could feel that all staff was trying their best to maximize their service level.

Should I be back to Abu Dhabi once again, Aloft would definitely be the first option for me!

Good day Travlerwhotraveling! Thanks a lot for this review and for giving us the highest rank score. Let's start with the good news: there is no more construction on the access to the parking so it became simple to reach it. But of course even better news is that you had a great stay and enjoyed your room and its comfy bed, our culinary offer and the friendly personalized service at the reception desk and restaurants. We are glad to read that you will definitely be staying with us on your next visit to Abu Dhabi. The whole team is very much looking forward to welcome you back very soon. Best wishes! Rainer

We had an overnight stay in Abu Dhabi and just needed the room to sleep in. Rooms are smallish but well appointed and comfortable, as is the bathroom. We spent some time at the pool which was great. Nice temperature with plenty of loungers and comfortable chairs. There is also a very nice rooftop bar with great views. This is a really great stop if you are looking for something smart and do not want to break the bank balance.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear similar.

Went to Abu Dhabi for 1 day trip. Quite impressed by the hotel. Very good lobby, nice bar. Awesome rooms. Loved the lighting and set up in the room. Located at a convenient place near the grand mosque. The staff was very good - got a lot of freebies :)
Also, pretty reasonable price (considering the expensive hotels in UAE).

an excellent rating from my side...nothing to criticize.

Room Tip: Choose the water facing room on a high floor.

It was a great design hotel. The room was very clean, tidy however a little bit small. The staff was very helpful in checkin desk especially.
The bed was very comfortable. Location of hotel is very nice, close to Yas island and airport.

I LOVED Aloft. . the pool area is unlike anything I've seen anywhere. Really nice food, things are pricey but you'd expect that, and overall I had a really nice time there.At night time on certain weekends, there is also an Aloft rain party by the pool area, which was one of the best nights I've had this year. I had never experienced anything like it - make sure you go at least once if it is on!!
