The first thing that strikes you about this hotel is the warmth of the hotel staff. The front office executive accompanied me to the room and explained the features and put the expectations in perspective. The rooms are well appointed and quite clean. I had a small accident at the revolving door of the hotel entrance. One of the staff members in the hotel offered me a seat and quickly got some ice and make me feel very comfortable. It was quite nice to see people caring when you are injured. It was overall a good experience. The billing was fast and efficient.

I stayed in Cristal Salam Hotel twice for 2x3 nights and each time I faced friendly, helpful and smiling staff. The quality of rooms exceeded my expectations. Great beds, superb bathrooms and high quality that you can experience with all these hotel's details. For a person like me who pays attention for those small nice things this was quite important. Perfect size of hotel, its location, accessibility, high quality service provoke me to avoid any other hotel for my next trip to Abu-Dhabi. And there is something else that I loved... great fresh fragrance they use. Just great !

We went to Abu Dhabi and selected this hotel for this part of our trip to the UAE. It was difficult to find without a GPS - they ran out from the car rental company but supplied us with a limited map. Once we found the hotel, we were pleased. They offered a very nice atmosphere, attentive, pleasant staff, and a clean, well-appointed room. The located was within walking distance of the Abu Dhabi Mall, and only about a block away from a grocer. We enjoyed walking around the city and taking in the sites. Each day we returned to the hotel, we were greeted by the staff and asked if there is anything else they could do to make our stay more enjoyable. We did not take advantage of their restaurant as we wanted to take in the taste of the city. We can only imagine it would have been a pleasant dining experience given all the attention from other aspects of the hotel.

We stayed in Cristal Salam hotel last week and the service was excellent! Staff was very friendly and couldn't do more for you. The room was spacious and I loved the pillows. It is definitely one of the best I've ever stayed in. Well done!

Usually an overnight stay won't help me with the overall impression, but starting with the welcome drink and friendly smile to the last minute and having helpful people all around the hotel makes you feel like you been there before.

Food is great, diversified, hotel was 2 minutes walk to my business associates quarters in Salam St. Abu Dhabi, the front desk people were very practical and helpful, the hotel is Xtra Clean!
you people out there should try it for yourselves
Next visit i will definitly ask my associates to book the stay in the Cristal Salam !

Our stay was excellent! We love the hotel! It's super clean and nice! We still keep in memory the pleasant smell of her runners! The staff is very friendly and always ready to help us! We highlight in particular the friendliness of the reception staff, George, Sheryll and Mukesh! George is very helpful! Sheryll is a beautiful lady, super friendly and efficient! Mukesh helped us greatly with advice of places to visit in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and also restaurants and bars in the area! We highly recommend this hotel!

Great service from checking in till checking out. Fantastic beds, bathroom. All very clean and spacious. Location - though in tourist club area, whatever that means - feels a bit on edge of downtown where most business locations are and the good restaurants and so on. Other than that - it is a super place to stay, as long as you don't expect too much of the rooftop pool....
