“An oldie but a goldie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

Spent one night and wish it was more! Like many UAE older hotels, the staff are so much better than the new flash places. All we come across were very polite attentive and well trained. All of the property (except the rooftop pool area) are very well maintained - like new. Right 'downtown' amongst lots of other towers. .5 km walk to the corniche. We upgraded to a suite on the Club floor, and it was a fabulous room and a pleasant Club lounge. We look forward to a return.

Room Tip: Upgrade to suite - not expensive and ask for a corner unit- great views.

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights as I had a training course in the same hotel. My overall rating is almost excellent. However, there are few things that I did not like so much like food was not up to expectation, furniture wasn't impressing but old fashion, and WIFI internet service was too costly ($27/day). The rest including staff and hospitality were all perfect.

I would recommend this hotel for visitors or business travelers.

Room Tip: The Standard Room is quite large but does not contain bed sofa and it's not allowed to get extra...

I have stayed in this hotel several times - 2 weeks in 2009 & 2 nights in 2011. The hotel has just finished major renovations & is now vastly improved.

LOCATION: On the main thoroughfare in the heart of the city. 2 minutes to parks, 5 minutes to the beach.

ACCOMODATION: Nice rooms, standard finishes. No special views.

RESTAURANTS: The Chao Gao is a nop notch 'asian fushion' bar/restaurant on the ground floor. The Peking duck is the best in Abu Dhabi. Happy hours 4pm - 7pm.
Hemmingways is a bar in the basement. Shows lots of sports. Happy hours 12 - 7pm (AED18 pint).

TIP: Children are allowed into all bars

The weekend breakfast finishes at 11:00 - great for late sleep in at the weekend. This is excellent and should not be missed.

Many restaurants in the hotel + good pubs and nightspots ----ladies leave your wallet at homes for some nights.....

Central location in the city of Abu Dhabi - buses and taxis plentiful and immediately outside the doors.
