“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Located quite conveniently in central Abu Dhabi. Modern building. Has an underground parking facility, which is conveniently handled by the Valet parking staff. Check in and check out processes were very smooth. During check in, the staff even upgraded our room, as the type we had asked for was not available. Good quality Wi-Fi for multiple users. Sufficient charging points for all our electronic equipment. Food quality was good as well, pricing was reasonable.

Room Tip: They have limited smoking rooms, if that is the sort of room you desire. Other rooms are all quite n...

I stayed in this hotel for the first time and i was impressed about the hotel service, staff was fantastic , hotel design and facilities are better than many five stars in Abu Dhabi. Price was real value of money. Location is great although it is a bit tricky but in down town and away from the crowed areas. i will stay their again and recommend it to other friends indeed.

We stayed in this hotel in January 2014 as part of a multi stop honeymoon. At first it doesn't look like very much from the outside, but in fact this is a solid and well laid out hotel. The room was a good size and nicely appointed, and the facilities were very good. It was very clean and well maintained throughout. There is a decent and surprisingly busy bar on the top floor and the happy hour drinks were very well priced for the UAE, where although alcohol is not banned, it is discouraged with high taxes. The pool, although not huge, was quite nice. There is a 24hour market just across the road for supplies and the huge Abu Dhabi Mall is only about five to ten minutes walk away and easy to find.

Abu Dhabi itself is relatively low on sights, and we thought that one well known sight, the Emirates Palace, although very impressive, was really just another big hotel. However, the highlight of our visit was definitely the Sheik Zayed Mosque, which is amazing.

Enjoyed this leg of our trip and were very happy with the Cristal Salam, would recommend.

Room Tip: You can get to Abu Dhabi from Dubai Airport for 320 UAE dinar. Taxis in Abu Dhabi are reasonable and...

Good value for money. Rooms are big, clean and nicely set. The wi-fi is fast (really!). The only drawback is the location, in an uninteresting neighborhood (but taxis in Abu Dhabi are inexpensive, so not a big problem). Bring something warm to wear in the restaurant!

I spent eleven months at this wonderful hotel the staff where kind considerate and above all my friends. I would like to single out two people Sheryl on the front desk who I did not have time to say goodbye two as she was in hospital but her quiet efficiency and happy smile at all times was the high light of the day after returning from work. The bar was my refuge after a hard days work and Royiet was my mentor always greeted with hi Mr Michael a big smile and a little kiss on the cheek made my evening. Again thanks all the staff for the excellent standards of care given to me over the last eleven months I will miss them all. xxxxxx

This hotel ticks all the main boxes for me - price is good, staff are great, location is fine (hypermarket nearby), great gym, fantastic bar and decent restaurants. I stayed here for 5 nights recently and really enjoyed the experience.

Free Wifi once again is a huge plus! Well done on providing this!

I would definitely go back as it provides great value for money.

Well done guys. Customer service is 10/10.
