I enjoyed my stay. The wi-fi in my room 513 was not working. The pool is small and is right next to the bar.
The hotel is value for money for a 4 star. The beds are very comfortable and get a good night sleep.

With our family we stayed at the Hotel for nearly a week. The hotel is located just in the center of Abu Dhabi and thus serves as a perfect starting point for visiting the city. We were upgraded to two bigger rooms which had connecting doors. The rooms were very clean and the beds really comfortable. We would like to emphasize especially the friendliness of the staff members and the overall excellent price/performance ratio.

Modern, clean and spacious room! Helpful staff. Pool area is quite small, but ok. A very good choice! We can gladly recommend this hotel to anyone, whether you are traveling alone, with friends or family or whether you are on a business trip.

We had mixed feelings about the Cristal Salam Hotel. The room we booked (at an excellent rate) was rather small and the bed even smaller. We were upgraded to a King bed room, which was just right for our 2 night stay. We did not avail ourselves of anything the hotel had to offer, although we tried to use the cafe. We sat there for 10 mins but did not get served.

The mall was a 10 min walk away, through wide streets with not much in them. The 24 hour market was a bonus, and we visited it each day of our stay.

Having said this we enjoyed our stay in our comfortable room and stay in Abu Dhabi.

If you want to rest in Abu Dhabi a few days and explore the spectacular new monuments as Guggenheim Museum,skyscrapers...or just do shopping, this is a very price-worthy place. We landed there because we missed flight connections, but were pleasantly surprised by the matter-of-fact hospitality, the cafeteria-style dining, the price-for-quality and the multi-lingual helpfulness of all staff. The two-day stop-over got us back in shape, before flying on to new work stress..
We will repeat. Abu Dhabi got into our travel system through the "Cristal".

We needed to break our flight from Melbourne to Dublin so decided on Abu Dhabi as a suitable place. Cristal Salam was chosen by internet only and turned out to be ideal for our purpose. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are well appointed and tasteful. The furniture and furnishings are functional and elegant with no kitsch. The prints on the walls show that someone who knows about art has been involved with their selection. The location is ideal for a short stay because it is central. The value of accommodation and food very good.
