Reviewed 23 January 2013

Location is very good. Ambience is nice. Bus service to various locations in the city like marina mall, sheikh zayed mosque etc. Hospitality and service is good. Some good Indian restaurants nearby. Food is very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are quiet.

Brand new, ultra modern rooms and bathrooms and decor, very clean, super friendly staff, good restaurants, nice pool. Great service. Loved it. Have no reason to stay elsewhere in Abu Dhabi. You'll need to cab everywhere, but that's par for the course in Abu Dhabi and cabs are dirt cheap by US standards, so get your fill. Only thing I would change is they need to show you how to set the temperature in the room. However, when I called in the middle of the night because I couldn't figure it out, some dude came up immediately to adjust it and explain it for me. Great place.

Having stayed here twice, each time as a transit hotel, the Novotel Gate (don't get it confused with the other Novotel in the city, which is separately owned and operated) is good, clean and great value. It's isolation means there are no other food options nearby if you don't want to eat at the hotel.

was visiting a popular EXPO in Abu Dhabi. As usual all hotels were sold out. Novotel had just opened up. One of the best business rooms I have stayed in. Not only because it was new; but also because it was very practical right from charging your phone to connecting your laptop to the TV (my first)
the bar was excellent !
The breakfast was great ! quick. The staff was cordial ! ( a lot of them were trainees)
for business perspective the location was perfect (although dont expect to walk around the hotel). you need a taxi no matter what.
we checked out early on day of departure and then asked to use the shower before our flight ! the front desk was more than kind allowing us to do so
I am coming back for sure

Lovely brand new hotel but unlike most novotels it didn't have a double sofa bed so although we had booked a room for 2 adults and 2 children it couldn't accommodate us, had to move out after the first night,so don't book if you have children.hotel is lovely nice pool and spa, restaurant was good however not all restaurants are open yet and is a bit far from the corniche and downtown malls. Agree with the other reviewers that taxi drivers don't know where it is so worth having it on your phone to show them.

This new Novotel (opend Oct2012) is only 10min by taxi from the airport but (to) far from the city center. Unfortenly they do not offer any shuttle bus downtown yet (staff says its planned to marina mall to start during 2013) and also other details are not ready. the web corner (mentioned in the printed hotel information in the room) does not exist, at least wifi is free. also they do not provided any adaptors as they promise. good thing you can open the windows in the room a little bit which was also necessary as the air con did now work well eighter. very good bathroom with great overhead shower. nice pool area with a good swimming size pool, even heatet but the pool chairs are a bit to short. also its not opposite the grand mosque as in the description, you can see it on the horizon but its still about a 10min drive. if you plan do to a city bus tour anyway then start it right there as the big bus tour has a stop at the mosque and a taxi from the hotel there is much cheaper then downtown. if you arrive late or have a early flight its the perfect hotel to stay overnight but its just to far to the city center as long as they dont even offer a shuttlebus.

This hotel worked out very well as i was organising a meeting with delegates from europe, dubai and bahrain.

The new hotel has good general facilities and is very close to the airport (so you don't have to go through traffic into AD. The room was good, outside pool area very nice with many tables and 2 bars and professional and helpful staff.

The hotel is close to the shangri-la complex where there are a lot of restaurants and shops. You'll need this as there was only 1 restaurant open in the novotel. Otherwise it is quite far into town.

I had rented a meeting room for 5 people for one morning and was the first to use this room. Very good facilities, internet connection, projector and coffee breaks. Some kleenex tissues on the table would be good though.

I would book this hotel again for a 1 or 2 day meeting. If you stay longer or are in AD as a tourist you might want to book something in town
