I don't know what happened to people who write bad reviews here on this hotel. I had an excellent stay.
If you need to be in the city: book a hotel in the city and don't complain about the remoteness of this hotel. It is situated lovely on Yas Island, next to the F1 track and the Golf Links course.
If you complain about noise because of closeness to the airport, book a hotel in the middle of the desert. BUT I heard perhaps 10 aircraft in 2 days, and that's not really noise to me. That's proof that it just takes about 15 minutes by taxi to get from the hotel to the airport (cost about 15 - 20 AED).
When I arrived, the bathrobe in the room was a bit too small for me, and 5 minutes after having called housekeeping, I was brought one in a bigger size.
One evening, I ordered room service (3 dishes, 3 drinks), and 25 minutes later, I was dining on delicious food.
All staff was utterly friendly, even though there was a slight delay at the checkout, but the guy who eventually served me apologised for having kept me waiting.

I actually booked into the Rotana which is 200m away but so different in atmosphere. Stayed one night, checked the Crowne P after breakfast and then moved immediately.
This hotel has a number of advantages 1. The views across the golf course are wonderful, particularly at sunset. 2. The pool area is really tranquil and well designed. The Rotana pool area is next to dual carriageway, and design of building captures all the noise from F1 track. 3. You get the sun from 1000 til sunset. The other hotels are in shadow for significant periods, except Staybridge. Sun is gone from pool area at 1400 at Rotana!!

This hotel was great value and had a great location for walking to the race track and catching the free shuttle to Ferrari world which was the purpose of our two ay stay.

Great room service and the breakfast buffet was great.

Clean rooms and very comfortable beds!

We booked this hotel for one night as it was close to the airport and we didn't want a long transfer after our long flight. I just loved this hotel. Our bedroom was a good size as was the bathroom and both were spotless. The bed was so comfortable and inviting just what we needed for our stopover. Reception staff were very efficient and friendly and there was no delay in getting booked in. We were on an early flight and I forgot to request an early check in but we were offered a beautiful room at 9am with no hassle. On our return journey from Australia the same,we were offered an early check in again with no hassle. I am also coeliac and I forgot to request some gluten free food but the catering staff very quickly catered for all my dietary needs. The swimming pool is very inviting and the staff at the pool bar very friendly and helpful also. The transfer from airport to hotel is about 15mins and cost 18 denarhs, make sure and take official taxis only as we were charged 80 denarhs by a rogue taxi driver the first time. The hotel is also very reasonable and well worth every penny for comfort and care we received.I would definitely highly recommend this hotel for a visit and as a stopover in Abu Dhabi it is just perfect.

Room Tip: We just took what we were offrered and the room was really quiet

I loved my hotel room, had booked a deluxe double room and got a room at the 7th floor which is the club floor. We had a great view from our hotel window over ferrariworld and yas marina circuit.

Check in and out was smooth, no problems at all. Nice bed, and colors in the room. Really nice bathroom.

Loved our stay, the only down was that we only stayed for one night. Would have loved to stay for a longer time.

This accomodation was provided to us from Etihad Airways (great review for this Company as well) because our return flight to London was canceled due to unfavourable weather conditions.

Great location - close to the airport and Formula 1 attraction, with frequent shuttle service to the city centre (approx 40 minutes).
Very Clean
Friendly and Efficient Staff
Great Food
Modern Design with incredible attention to detail.

Perfect for business Trips but also for relaxing couple holidays.

Very nice hotel. Breakfast was outstanding and the staff could not have been better. Being a Priority Club member give us access to the top floor lounge which was a very nice place to visit in the afternoon. Ok it’s little out of town, but they provide a free shuttle bus and its quiet on Yas Island which can be a good thing too.

Room Tip: Disabled Room was good.
