“Location is great”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

We regularly stay at the Paragon on our trips to Abu Dhabi as it is a great location for easy access to so many things in the city. Right by Madinat Zayed mall and gold souq and has own parking included. A really handy city stopover spot.

Just stayed the one night at the Paragon. Value wise it's very good. It wasn't very expensive (we paid $70 AUD) and the room itself was clean and fairly modern. Only real negatives were that a couple of the power points in the room didn't work for a while, the WiFi didn't initially work and the front desk staff were not the friendliest. For us, the price outweighed the minor negatives so if you want a reasonable place to stay in Abu Dhabi for a good price then this is for you.

Reviewed 19 April 2012

Arrived in Abu Dhabi at 8:00 pm and didn't want to wait at airport until my flight to Athens the next morning. The people at Etihad told me that I'd definitely need a visa to get out for even one night, and I therefore did not pre-book anything. But I took a chance anyway, and sailed through passport control with no problem.

Next challenge was to find a hotel. The tourist information chap at the airport was as indifferent as could be, more interested in sending text messages to friends than helping me, although he did give me a booklet with some hotels in AD. I was too tired to work through this, especially since no rates or reviews are printed, and since Paragon has an office at the airport as you exit, I booked with them.

The ride to the hotel from the airport was too long - there must be some decent hotels nearer the airport which the tourist information guy could have told me about - and even at that time (9:00 pm) we encountered traffic in the city which delayed my arrival at the hotel. Not sure how centrally located it is, but it seemed stuck near a busy shopping mall.

Check-in was efficient and fine, but not exactly warm, and the young lady informed me that the rate did not include breakfast, which was disappointing. My room was better, clean, spacious, and well-presented, but the fridge was empty, which meant I had to get dressed again to pop out for a snack. This was the last thing I wanted to do, but it was obvious from my telephone call that to stock up the fridge was going to take too long, and Room Service would also be unpredictable.

Opened the curtains the next morning for an indifferent view, and checked out. This time, the young Philipinese clerk was more than friendly, and she tried to help in any way she could. Last impression was good, but on enquiry with local expats in Dubai, I found out that the price I'd paid was far too high for the experience, and together with the additional 110 AED I paid for the taxis, I was not too happy

From my brief experience, Abu Dhabi is not as glamorous as it appears in its advertising, and the staff at the airport, particularly the Emiratees, can do with a healthy dose of customer service training. Next time I'll fly through Dubai again.

Room Tip: Really not sure, as my stay was too short. Do your homework beforehand.

This hotel is situated right down town and in the middle of plenty of shops and restaurants. They have their own underground car park, internet is free (wired) in rooms and the rooms are fine for a short stay. The paragon is clean and easy, great value for money in a fantastic spot.

Room Tip: Further from the lifts is best so you don't hear them and wake up.
