“Nice restaurant & good service”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

It was a exhausting day from a flight from my own country, Indonesia and it was a first time with honour to visit Abu Dhabi. My friend gave me a recomendation about Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche. It has a good location, but i and my friend had checked in another hotel. So we just visited and had a dinner there. At the first time we got there, we feel amazed of the elegant design. We just passed to have dinner, but already have a nice experience there. Comfortable restaurant, cozy sofa. The food was delicious. Nice service, friendly, specially david from corniche All day dining :). Next time if i have time, i will come back and stay in Sofitel Abu Dhabi, and i will recommended to my friend for sure.

I was Abu Dhabi to attend a workshop in Sofitel so i had the opportunity to stay in the luxurious. I was impressed with the excellent services, friendly and attentive staff and graceful ambience. The room was amazing with a graceful view of the sea and corniche.

Room Tip: The upper floor rooms have good view

Very often, hotels offer either stylish, very elegant design OR excellent, competent service. In the case of the Sofitel Abu Dhabi, you get both: a truly chic, stylish hotel (in a very elegant way), combined with outstanding service. Throw in some of the best restaurants in Abu Dhabi (such as "La Mer") and enjoy a cocktail either in their live jazz bar or next to the pool, and you will certainly enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor, directly facing the Corniche.

I was in Abu Dhabi for a short break and I chose Sofitel. Amazing choice that I have made. I get my room upgrade to a Business Suite. The room was spacious, with panoramic view of Corniche and the sea, the bed was magnificent, the bathroom simply amazing, the services and the staff were always above the expectations. Simply amazing!

Room Tip: Choose a "Luxuryus Room". You pay a little more, but you will get amazing views over the s...

Great hotel with excellent, quality rooms, particularly the bathrooms.

Service again excellent, apart from breakfast service. Breakfast finished at 11.00am and we arrived at 10.15am. We were shown to a table by a guy in a black suit and told it would finish soon! - (but we still had 45 minutes). We were then left wondering what the procedure was. After 5 minutes we asked if we needed to order coffee and were told we should have ordered on arrival, but we were not asked. Breakfast was excellent, however, we had to ask for more coffee which took 10 minutes to arrive. On leaving we asked if we had to sign and the receptionist told us we should have given our room number on arrival. So generally, the staff at breakfast seemed disorganised - a strong contrast to the rest of the hotel.

One thing the hotel should do is to fix the safes to the wall in the rooms. You can literally pick them up and could just walk out of the room with them.

Apart from this, the whole experience was a good one. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Choose high floor

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your comments about your stay at Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche. I sincerely apologize if you were made to feel uncomfortable at our restaurant. Rest assured that we are already taking the appropriate measures to ensure that it doesn't happen again. With reference to our safes, they are actually fixed to a shelf, which is in turn, is attached to the wall.

I apologize once again and I hope to see you again!

We recently stayed in the Sofitel for 3 nights and it was very pleasant! The general staff was friendly and attentive. We requested a room with a King bed, which was not available at check-in, but they unblocked a room for us, which was nice.
The rooms were clean and spacious, very nicely decorated, loved the fact that the room had a rain shower and a separate bath tub. The pool bar Chill'O was fantastic with nice service, good drinks and shishas available after 6 PM.
The only negative thing is that my wife (she is from Thailand) visited the Silk & Spice restaurant within the hotel and was not very well treated, the waitress was quite rude and gave her the look, which was saying: "What are you doing here?". It might had been different if I was there with my wife, but unfortunately I had to attend a meeting.
Overall it was a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Superior Room, which features a rain shower and a separate bath tub

Great location, great hotel And great service! From arrival till departure, staff impressed us with their kindness, attention to detail and service!

We had a great view over the sea And the corniche!

Hotel provides free access to a private Beach at 2 min from hotel! Very nice beach with all commodities!

We tried their Sea Food (La Mer) restaurant And got pretty amazed! By far the best sea food restaurant I have experienced in the UAE! They also have a thai restaurant but did not have the chance to try! Will have to come back for that!
