stunning hotel, the view of the mosque is wonderful, we had reserved a room on the gold floor (7th), we were given probably the worst no 723, very noisy, as it has a very noisy machinery above, also cupboards are very small and could not accommodate more than a couple of items, after complaining about the noise and lack of space, we were offered a very nice corner room with double the cupboard capacity, the design of the electrical switches could have been planned better, no night light to the bathroom, only a central switch for all the lights to come on! the staff was charming and nothing was too much trouble to advise or arrange outings. The advertised spa is still not opened after several months.
The cleaning standard could be improved as the corridor carpet did not get clean for a week and it was done only after we mentioned it a couple of times.
The restaurants are very good, would I want to stay there again? I would start to look for alternatives, but the position on the creek overlooking the mosque is the best view in Abu Dhabi.
