“Not bad but needs some improvement”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The hotel is overall good. It is clean and the room size is big. the downside is that there is only one persion in the reception and there is always a long queue (I don't understand why every check-in takes at least 5 minutes to complete). Besides, there is no adaptor to lend (even against a deposit). The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, but handy for people taking early morning flight.

I am staying 2 weks per months at this hotel so i know it quite well after 3 months in Abu Dhabi.
The hotel is brand new, and the service is good. In many senses, is like being in a 4 * hotel.
The rooms are simple but correct, they got what you need from a room.
The breakfast by the other side is poor, maybe because i do long stays, but is mainly (not only) focused in Indan food that makes occidental choices to be very limited. i really miss peeled fresh fruit.
The other big con is that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so do not expect to leave the hotel for a walk, the city is 20 min by taxi.
Restaurants are correct, swimming pool nice and gym is excellent. The best gym i have seen in a hotel that really makes the difference for long stays.

Room Tip: Better if the room is opposite to the motorway

The Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate hotel is a great property. It's brand new and well decorated for a budget hotel. I have to say that the hotel did let me down a little - the drain in my bathroom did not drain properly and the front desk acted as if it were no big deal - my last night in the hotel the water flooded from the shower to the bedroom and all the way underneath the bed.

The room however was well equipped with a small TV, refrigerator, and hardwood look floors. I must say that the bed was comfortable and the 25 AED fee to use the pool was irritating. I know the pool is a part of the hotel that is connected to the Ibis, but the pool could have been an included amenity.

Overall, I did like the hotel, I enjoyed my stay, but the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. You are very limited to what is in the area to eat that is not inside the hotel. I would stay here again, but hope I'm never in Abu Dhabi again. You can't go wrong with the Ibis!

Room Tip: Ask for the highest floor possible, rooms on the side face the Grande Mosque.

New hotel and very clean.
Staff is very attentive.
This hotel is connected to NOVOTEL and you can use its services.
They have the best Italian Restaurant in Abu Dhabi - GABBIANO.
IBIS also has a covered park free of charge for guests.
We've tryed a big number of 5 star hotels in Abu Dhabi but if you go just for the night (not expecting a lot of services), this hotel is perfect and much... much cheaper.
