“Good stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

I stayed with my fiancè and his family some time ago.
We liked the location and the rooms, even though we couldn't be in the same floor and the elevator system is a bit uneasy to use.
As usual in Sofitel, the best things are: the bed (you cannot find a more comfy one!!), the sound system of the room, and the bathroom (and the amenities are extremely nice as well!).
The lobby had a very weird perfume that we all didn't particularly enjoy, but I guess is a matter of preferences.
The staff was nice, kind and attentive. The food was a bit too sophisticated but generally nice.
There was a long waiting for a taxi but then again short distance for going everywhere. The price was fair, except for the spa.
The swimming pool is very nice, especially in the evening.
All things considered we enjoyed our stay and we would go back :)

Checked into the hotel in the early hours of the morning, due to a flight delay. Check in was smooth and efficient, great customer service. Upgraded to a luxury room free of charge, for having an Accor group membership. Modern spacious rooms, decorated to a very high standard. Amazing bathroom, with sliding doors which open up to the bedroom, with views across the water. Hotel is located next to the corniche, and connected to the walkway via an underpass. Excellent service, in room dining was efficient and tasted delicious. Extras in the rooms were well thought and pure luxury. All in all amazing hotel, with great views across the corniche, excellent staff and a truly enjoyable experience. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a higher room with a sea view

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for six weeks when we first moved to Abu Dhabi. It is a wonderful hotel with excellent service. Everyone we encountered during our stay were very friendly and helpful. We had access to the Club Millesime Lounge and it was well worth it. I cannot say enough about staff at the club lounge, they truly made our stay at the Sofitel exceptional - Chef Maya, Rangana, Devender, April, Mark, Peter, Mimoon, Fadil and Ibttisam. Each and everyone of the Club Millesime staff showed great pride in their work and provided phenomenal service.

Overbookings are not fun for anyone - both for the hotel staff and the guests, and unfortunately, I happened to check-into the Sofitel Abu Dhabi during one of these times. The staff seemed frazzled, a little unco-operative and we ended up staying in Twin Rooms instead of the Kings we booked. The next day improved dramatically however as I got my request for two King Rooms fulfilled. The breakfast was excellent, with lots of variety, and the service from that point onwards was very good. The staff were much friendlier, welcoming and eager to assist.

The room itself had a beautiful sea view, the bed was comfortable, and the amenities were aplenty. The location is also optimal for any walks along the Corniche, as it is connected via an underpass.

So despite a substandard start, the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche did pull though in the end, with the usual excellence that is expected of the brand.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are excellent to wake up to.

I have visited Sofitel once again, and as usual the standard of the hotel in every aspect has been excellent. This time I was on the 29th floor, a club suite, facing the sea! very impressive view and looked after very well during my two weeks stay.
For me this hotel is most certainly value for money.

Room Tip: I never visited the spa, but by all accounts this is a wonderful experience, perhaps a little expens...

Good hotel, value for money.
In-room dining breakfast was probably the poorest I've ever seen. And I waited for it for more than an hour. But I should mention, because of the long waiting time, they didn't charge me for it. Staff was quite helpful and attentive.
Bathroom is not too big but clean and very well-maintained. Bed was comfy. Room is of a decent size. Overall property is well-maintained, furniture is new and stylish. Swimming pool is quite small, but this is not a resort hotel. I would say it is a great place to stay for a business trips. Location is very convenient for city travel.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view and high floor. Otherwise view is not impressive at all.
