Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stayed here for 6 nights in May and were pleasantly surprised by the rooms, pool and breakfast. great location for grand mosque and cheap taxi ride to all other attractions.
There was building work going on on the outside of the Hotel which really disturbed our time at the pool. We complained to the manager who simply said they had mentioned this on their web page. We found no evidence of this at all. Also be aware that twice during our stay the hotel hosted Drink/pool parties which very much lowered the tone of the venue and left the pool unclean the following days.

Hi there Michelleyates65,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience at Aloft Abu Dhabi. I am very pleased to read that you found the room to be great and the location convenient to your needs. I’m regretful to learn that your evening at the pool was troubled. I believe you did have a word with our Director of Operations and I was made aware that though he wasn’t able to solve the pool issue within our hotel, he took over the responsibility for this situation and offered you pool access to our sister property, the Westin Abu Dhabi (5star hotel, 10 minutes away), which of course also has a brilliant pool landscape, appropriate for children with excellent food and barbecue options, offering you to keep. Unfortunately, despite of our intentions to solve this inconvenience in the best possible way the offer was turned down. Admittedly we are busy during our pool parties which take place twice a month due to popular demand and the pool undergoes treatment and is ready to use the next day. Thank you once again for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention and we hope that despite of this situation we will have the pleasure to welcome you soon again to Aloft Abu Dhabi. Best wishes, Rochelle

Stay for 2 night, room with swimming pool view it's amazing specially after pool party. The recharge gym it's excellent new equipment and clean. The wxyz bar my favorite is chicken lollipop. Having breakfast at dine is great many selection of foods specially as I am Asian they provide noodle, dim sum, duck and I love the banana puding.

I recently stayed at the Aloft Hotel Abu Dhabi for 2 nights. Upon arrival I was offered early check in and late check out at no extra cost. The rooms are large, modern and clean in line with the whole hotel's style. The pool area is excellent. A fully stocked bar and pool side menu is available. The beds are large and comfortable with toppers comparable to a mattress. The pool itself is different levels and sections allowing you to swim or just sit in shallow water and read your book. A big bonus of this hotel is that it has free wifi throughout! And it actually works, very well. If your looking for a clean and quite location to rest your head and relax by the pool this is the place. I didn't visit the restaurant but i did use the good to go area and the handy fridge in my room meant I could store sandwiches and drinks and keep them cool. I visited many sights from the hotel, nothing was more than 20minutes away in a taxi (most journeys cost less than £5, taxi's are very very cheap). Overall a great stay, I will return.

I stayed this hotel for couple of night in 2013, I really enjoyed my stay! Very clean and modern place, the staffs are friendly in general and the location is just unbeatable this is a great hotel. If the Aloft is your price range you should stop looking and book it now. It's modern, the staff are beyond excellent and the location is good.

It was a perfect accomodation option near my working place with a shuttle service provided everyday to reach my office place.
The room overlooking the swimmingpool was very nice, the facilities offered such as the equipment in the room are very convenient, and the Re_fue sel-serve gourmet eatery available 24/7 is an excellent option for long stay and for those who are not willing to eat everyday in restaurants.
The hotel is within easy reach to the center town by taxi and the staff is always available to help you should you need assistance to find a transportation service at any time

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the swimmingpool are probably the best in case you need to have a nice view; but I...

Checkin was on the second floor of the building. We were greeted warmly and given 2 adjoining rooms and a STACK of drink coupons due to my friend's SPG Plat status. Typical Aloft rooms which is to say, functional with a hint of modern.

Great shower with insane water pressure and huge rain shower head (always a plus). In fact, the shower put out so much steam that all we had to do was hang up a shirt from the shower door and it would be steamed free of wrinkles by the time you were finished showering.

We spent an afternoon by the pool after visiting the nearby Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Cool little bar out there where we put those drink coupons to use. Staff was exceedingly friendly at all times.

Breakfast buffet was just OK in my opinion. I guess I miss pork bacon and sausage in those situations.

Rooftop terrace was undergoing renovations when we were there so didn't get to hit that up.

As far as the location..true, it's not near the Corniche or Saadiyat Island but cabs are so cheap in AD it shouldn't really be a deal breaker.

Overall a wonderful stay with no complaints. True, it's not a 5-star resort, but for the price, it can't be beat.
