Within 2 months I've been now three time to the Sofitel Corniche Abu Dhabi Hotel and I've been lucky to stay in one oft he best hotels in the world. I cannot sing the praises of this hotel enough. From the moment I walk into the stunning foyer of the hotel they treat you like a King.

During all three stays I had a beautiful suite on the 28th Floor. Stunning ocean views, massive bathroom with a shower room and a giant tub. I was never made to feel like I didn't belong. The entire time I was treated with the utmost respect. They also very kindly extended my late checkout from 2pm to 8pm at no additional cost.

The breakfast and dinner buffet is extraordinary, almost anything you could possibly think of Western and middle eastern foods. The La Mer Seafood Restaurant and Silk and Spice Thai Restaurant were excellent too.

A special thank to the wonderful staff … Nothing was too much trouble for the highly professional team. The entire executive lounge staff was very caring and well trained. A special thanks to Mr. Aftab and Mr. Rohan from the Corniche Restaurant who met our every need. And so many others whose names I don't recall were all very nice.

An absolute pleasure to be there, its gone beyond excellent.
Thanks!

Was in Abu Dhabi for work and my employer offered me the opportunity to upgrade from my previous hotel (next door to their office) to Sofitel. I jumped at the chance. The entire property is away from the bustle of the main streets in downtown Abu Dhabi, yet a short walk away. The views (I had a seaside view) are amazing. Corniche is easily accessible via a subway under the seaside road. No beach, pool area on 8th level is nice and well sheltered but is small

The service staff were very helpful in organizing tours and friendly advice on what to see in my limited time off. Abu Dhabi taxis are cheap and clean so it is easy to get around town. The room was immaculate, with the most comfortable bed and satiny yet crisp feeling sheets. Room is a little light on closet space for two people. Great swaterfall shower and nicely laid out bathroom.Breakfast buffet is to die for and fortunately it was included in my room rate. Food and drinks in general are pricy, but quality and service are very good.

Will stay there again if I have the chance.

Room Tip: Get a seaview room as high as possible to get the best panorama

We're staying for 6 nights.

The hotel's location is near the corniche so we can have sea view although it doesn't have private beach.

The good things are:
- the service is excelent. The night shift manager is very helpfull and having sincere hospitality. He and some Concierge persons have the true hospitality. Some of their collegues shall learn from him.

- The breakfast selection is huge, though it can be more variation To avoid guest that stay more than 3 days facing same selection every day.

- the room is big, new, and modern. It is give you homey feeling. But the matress can be more comfort. I have big pile of soft material in the middle of our matress

- the ball room is separate from Lobby, hence the crowd is not mix with the guest room. It is giving comfort feeling.

So overall it is value for money with the true Sofitel service

The service here was very bad the worst Ive experianced in UAE. I had to wait an hour and call room service 4 times for wine glasses. When the hairdryer didnt work I called and waited 45 mins for them to bring another. I also have a wheat allergy and after speaking with the staff in the cafe the advised me after speaking with the chef what desert I could eat, only for me to find halfway through it contained wheat, causing me to be very ill. They seemed very unorganised and no matter what we asked we had to wait to get questions. Not 5 star service at all.
