“worth a stay !!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Clean, professional & polite staff & a reasonable price. a perfect place to hop in is Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate. The swimming pool access would cost you 25 DHS/access but you should not be complaining about this. Right next to the hotel is a kind of small private beach(not for swimming though) where you can have a good relaxed evening. Great breakfast options. Again, one of the best set of staff I have come across.

Negative - There is nothing much to do in the location the hotel is placed. Limited options. Though this hotel is near to the airport, a taxi would cost you about 40 DHS. Downtown is about 25 minus drive. Good thing is that they give a complimentary shuttle service to Mushrif mall from the hotel at 1030hrs and back from the mall at 1630hrs(hope I have the timings correct).

Room Tip: Take rooms facing the main road. The other side faces a small river( a sort of ) where locals jet sk...

I was placed in this hotel by my client, but had it been my choice I would not have stayed in the hotel. I stay in many 3 star business hotels worldwide and this is no where near a 3 star business hotel.
The cleaning of the room was not up to standard, the food ratio of quantity verses price was ridicules and the room amenities were non-existent. This hotel should advertise itself as a "Low Budget, No Frills" hotel and that would be keeping with the integrity of the hotel business in the Middle East.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone outside of amateur sports teams and back packers, business people beware.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Newer property, although a remote location. No where to walk to. Good facilities, and restaurants. Like the Belgian Cafe, although a little pricey and my time of stay a very limited fixed menu. Comfortable room.

This hotel is basic but comfortable. Unfortunately it is a long way out of the city. It is, however, close to the airport and also to Qaryat Al Beri which is a lovely area to visit (souq-like and with many restaurants overlooking the water across to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque). They're opening a Belgian Cafe in between the Ibis and the Novotel - it's nice to sit outside on the water with a drink. Hopefully food will also be available when you visit (it is imminent apparently).

Hotel was very good in Ambiance, Cleanliness and hospitality. Rear side has a good pool facilities.
In my view, I feel that the hotel is bit remote and only choice is private Taxi to access the hotel.
