I had a room on the 6th floor, which faced the Grand mosque over the waterway..
The room itself was very spacious, with comfortable bed, sofa, extensive TV channels (great if you like football). The bathroom was a wet room , while the washing facilities were excellent.
The food in the buffet wasa wide variety of international, Arabian and Asian. There was also a selection of suchi and other cold fish dishes, while there was a wide selection of salads. The staff in the buffet, as in the rest of the hotel were uniformly excellent and friendly.
Mainly, this is a business hotel, but as a vacation base in Abu Dhabi, I recommend it with hesitation.
