“Superb stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

I stayed here for a business trip for about one month. It is a great location for the airport and close to city centre. Taxi are very cheap and it about a 15-20 minute journey to the beach. There are loads do shopping centres near by to visit.

The hotel it's self is superb the staff are all very helpful. I would like to say a big thank you to Gopal the concierge guy, he is very helpful and any questions you have he will find the answer. Also Kace the customer relations lady is very friendly and will always help if u have problems with your stay. Thanks guys for making my stay memorable.

The food at the hotel is great and the 31st bar has a good selection of drinks with a roof top view of Abu Dhabi. The pool area is small and the gym is not the biggest but who goes to the gym and pool when u have Abu Dhabi on your door step.

Thanks again to the Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 1st floor if your a non smoker.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

As part of an organized tour to Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah, my husband and I stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn. Excellent! The room was comfortable with all the expected ammenities of a solid 4, perhaps even 5 * hotel. The buffet breakfast was excellent and provided international and local dishes, as well as a made to order egg station. We had the buffet dinner one evening (included in our tour) and it was also very good. The staff, all over the hotel, was always willing to help and answer questions.

The location is not advisable if you want to walk. There is not too much at walking distance. You really need to take a taxi. For us it was not an issue as we were on an organized tour.
We had a glass of wine, at their bar one evening and it was very enjoyable.

Recommended!

Hello trvlbufElmhurst,

Thank you for your detailed review.

Thank you once again for taking the time to share your stay experience with us. We are happy to see that you were well taken care of by our team. Thank you for your compliments towards our breakfast buffet and egg station, dinner buffet, bar and towards our team as well. We understand the slight challenges one may face but our location is central, given our distance from the airport and downtown. A taxi is always available on call should a guest require one and can take you to the Mushrif Mall 10 minutes away or the Zayed Sports Stadium for a round of bowling perhaps or Spinneys, a well equipped supermarket is right behind the hotel.

We highly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to another opportunity to serve you.

Until then,
Regards,
Philipp Economou
