Aloft Abu Dhabi
Ranked #56 of 129 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2013

The hotel sits above the National Exhibition Centre so is a perfect place to stop if attending an exhibition.
The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful.
The hotel is very modern and efficient. Smart decor, comfortable public areas (Bar, restaurant, Coffee/snack shop).
The bedrooms are spacious and again extremely modern and comfortable.
I ate in the main restaurant one evening. The quality of the food was excellent and the service impeccable.
The hotel is a little far out of the centre - but taxis are cheap. To get to the Marina Mall (on the waterfront in the centre) a taxi cost AED 30 (about 6 pounds sterling) and took about 15 minutes. There are no other places to eat near the hotel (except in the Premier Inn hotel opposite) but getting into the centre, where there is more choice, isn't difficult.

I have stayed at alofts in the U.S. and this is in line with my expectations. The room was big and faced the Grand Masque which was a nice surprise. The pool was great and watching the sunset from the roof top restaurant with a mocktail was an excellent way to spend the evening. My pregnant wife loved the selection and creativity of the nonalcoholic drinks.

We cabbed it from Dubai and the price was around $60 (cabs are amazingly cheap in the UAE). Going downtown or the airport was less than $5.

Room Tip: We got a room with a view of the Grand Masque. It is a bit far away, but cool to be able to see it...

I stayed there last month I enjoyed my stay the rooms are fabulous however I wish that there was no smell of the kitchen inside the hallways. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is situated in a very good place and accessible to everywhere. Everyone also can enjoy the pool and the bar facility.

Stayed at Aloft for a recent conference at ADNEC the adjoining conference centre. Without doubt this is THE place to stay if you are attending an event at ADNEC. From the hotel you can access all the halls of ADNEC without ever stepping outside. The saving in time and effort associated with Alofts proximity to ADNEC is difficult to describe until you try and get to and from the conference centre from elsewhere in Abu Dhabi.
The highlights of Aloft include very friendly and efficient staff. A really cool 24hr snack shop available in the lobby to fend off those hunger pangs. A good even very good breakfast buffet. An acceptable gym. Really nicely designed and kitted out rooms. Intriguing design throughout......quite a place.
And in the rooms blackout blinds...phenomenal sleep quality!
But there were some rough edges. Service on level 5 restaurant was pretty patchy. Slowish, not very well organised. But eventually got there and left us not delighted but not disappointed. There were a few complaints on the quality of ribeye steak. Best to avoid. Gym was a little small at busy times. After that I'm struggling to think of anything that I didn't like about the place.
Oh and perhaps best of all......I had a little box of cakes delivered to my room ASAP welcome gift....nice touch.
Roll on next years visit to ADNEC. If I can stay at ALoft I will be delighted.

Room Tip: Outward looking...higher floors

Hi kontiki-T60, thanks very much for taking the time to post this long review describing in detail your great stay with us. We are of course extremely motivated knowing that a Trip Advisor Senior Contributor, who has traveled a lot, has evaluated our hotel with high scores and flattering comments. It's very nice to read that you enjoyed the quality of our breakfast, of our 24/7 take away or eat in re:fuel venue and of course the design, space and functionality of our rooms. Great that our location was of your full convenience and that you enjoyed in general all of our facilities. Thank you also for noting the special welcome amenities we offer here at Aloft. We are sorry to learn that we slipped in one of our restaurants and didn't meet your expectations. The feedback is precious and we have addressed it with the concerned team. Finally but not least, we are the ones who will be delighted to welcome you back to Aloft. Please do contact me next year as we will make all necessary arrangements to repeat a memorable stay with us. Until then, best wishes from Abu Dhabi! Yours, Rainer

Stayed for 4 nights for an exhibition. It is 'connected' to the ADNEC, the Abu Dhabi Exhibition Centre. Couldn't have asked for a better location.

The breakfast is really very good and has a vast range of options. Must try the hash-browns.

The check-in and out is very fast and efficient. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at a double room and it is spacious and very good view (see uploaded pics)

Since we are not from the country; we chose to stay at the hotel coz my wife was invited to attend a wedding over there. However, the hotel is nice for those coming for a business trip or short period. The rooms are very small, the kindly upgraded us to a suite and it was like a deluxe room on other hotel. I think only one restaurant at the hotel open for breakfast but has like a small market provide light meal. For me when I traveled I look for a hotel provide me all needed as location, spa, swimming pool, restaurants in case don't want to go out. Beside the room has to be bigger and more classy than what on this hotel. The people working over there are very very friendly. If I visit abo Daubi again ill choose other hotel not because the hotel is bad but becase i don't find what I'm looking.

Dear Nowaiser, thank you for sharing your point of view about your stay with us. Indeed, although, our hotel is designed to accommodate and cater for the new generation of business traveler, we are very much visited as well by guests searching for a brief informal, fresh, fun, different but at the same time sophisticated in design and service leisure/ business location where they can enjoy a lively atmosphere with great vibe and all this with the best value. We are very happy that you noted the usual warm and friendly approach of our staff. With regards to our room size, with 38 sqm average, they are actually above standard of most of the hotels in the country. From your comments we believe you are looking more for the traditional 5 start luxury hotel. Nevertheless if you do change your mind and wish to enjoy more of the outside of the box cool experience with functional rooms, free wi-fi and fabulous service please let us know as it would be a pleasure to welcome you back soon. Best wishes! Rainer
