“i wouldn't stay anywhere else”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

A four day stopover in Abu Dhabi made easy by staying at the sofitel, shuttle bus takes you to Ferrari world ( don't bother it's rubbish) the beach and the marina mall. The standard of the room we had was as you would expect from sofitel brand. The cafe serves amazing smoothies and coffee. We didn't eat in the restaurants but they all looked wonderful. What really gives this hotel 5 stars is the staff. All were so friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. They found a bag which we left at the airport and ensured its safe return. All of the staff we encountered made this hotel stay stand out for us. I will definitely be returning to Abu Dhabi and I'll be staying at this hotel when I do.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Beautiful room and with a beautiful view of the city. Room looks to be very new and full of modern amenities. Service was good. Davinder (I hope I get your name right), the service staff on executive floor went out of his way to organize a quick morning for us to take an early flight. Thank you very much.

Generally, we find Abhu Dhabi a much more relaxing city than Dubai for a family. One should take a walk along the Corniche road in the evening. Really nice and relaxing. We took a walk from the hotel (one end of the road) with the aim to reach Marina Mall (the other end), we could only do half the distance (about 7km) . We should have taken cycles-on-hire along the way. Maybe next time.

The Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche is a large hotel but with a small and friendly feel about it. Nothing was too much trouble for the highly professional team - from the reception to the restaurant where the food was beyond compare from the sumptuous buffet.

I have stayed here many times before and it is always a joy to return again.

The gym overlooking the cornice is one that is very special and my room was perfection.

Nothing more to add other than looking forward to going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high as possible so you enjoy the views over the Corniche.

The Rooms of the Hotel are very small. Not even this the Queen sized Beds are also small as compared to average size of the other Hotel Beds. Staff was helpful. Placement of the Hotel was also nice and no problem as Taxis were available easily.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.

It is good to know that you liked the hotel and our amenities. Apologies if the size of the room and the bed is not what you are used to. I believe that a suite will be more to your liking on your next visit.

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

I could not fault this hotel, it was perfect in every way! Our large bedroom was bright and modern and was equipped with everything one would need on a stay away from home. The staff were wonderful and nothing seemed to be an effort for them. The hotel bars and restaurants and all other amenities were of the same high standard. The outdoor pool area even had an air conditioned area for when the heat becomes too unbearable. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying or stopping over in Abu Dhabi.
