“A good and functional option for a business trip”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

I stayed at the Mafraq Hotel whilst on business in Abu Dhabi. I would say that for anyone wishing to stay in a smart, clean hotel with a good standard of customer care, this would be a very good option. The room was well furnished with a nice little balcony overlooking the pool area and was clean and had good tea / coffee making facilities (not always to be found...). There were a couple of different options, an a la carte / grill restaurant and a buffet which I frequented. The buffet had a good, basic choice of dishes. The location of this hotel makes it ideal for those wishing to have good transport connections - main roads, proximity to airport - someone on a business trip. However it is a little way outside of the city in the middle of a ring road so this may not be the first choice family holiday destination.

Room Tip: If you have a room facing the pool, you can at times expect a little noise from those outside enjoyi...

Quiet place, near by to airport - 10-20 min of nice ride. Rooms very clean and neat, slept very well, new hotel. Staff very good and professional, tacking well care - I need to get up earlier, they without asking wrote down including time for travel. Nice garden, and pub - beer, snacks and hot dishes was marvelous (as it should be in a bar). In Hotel shop can have bit more varieties. Multimedia system a bit fancy and slow. can't say much more - as I have short stay only

Room Tip: Generally all rooms are good.

This excellent hotel is located about 20min by car outside of Abu Dhabi downtown and 10min from the Abu Dhabi airport. This makes the spot perfect for 2-3 day stop-overs. The hotel amenities are well kept and service is great. There is a gym and a spa, pool and tennis court. Breakfast buffet is tremendous and always refilled (fresh/warm/hot) during the 6-10:30h breakfast time.
In the closer neighborhood there is a hospital (Al Mafraq) and a beautiful modern mall (car required) with movie theaters. I would recommend this hotel anytime!

Dear readers! We in group of three stayed at Mafraq hotel from 9th till 15th November 2012 during ADIPEC Exhibition held in Abu Dhabi. I have noticed hospitable and honorific relation from entire hotel staff, everybody welcomes and smiles you, receptionist Adrian speaks 4(!) languages (even difficult Russian on a high level). I have experienced comfortable beds and tasty breakfasts, respectful staff and relaxing pool. There was a magnificient parfume inside the hotel, everything was clean and dressed. This hotel is very convenient to stay if your destination is ADNEC exhibition center, its close and not rather expensive. Thanks for great servise, Mafraq!

Stayed here as a stopover on 8th October for two nights. Arrived very early in the morning 7am after a long haul flight and all I wanted to do was sleep but upon check in they advised room was not able for check in until 11am and that we could pay extra to check in straight away I did as all I wanted to do was lie down.
Rooms were large spacious clean and the bed was massive!! very comfortable...Pool was clean and relaxing... Only down side was the long taxi ride into the city which can end up being costly if you end up going in a few times a day.. Wasn't very many people about when we were there. The breakfast buffet had a wide variety but I stuck to the basics of fruit and toast wanted to use the grill restaurant one evening for dinner and was advised it was closed ate in the bar one evening very basic chips n burger kinda things.
Would recommend for a stopover hotel due to the distance between the main city.

My husband and I stayed at the Mafraq from the 31st Oct to the 5th Nov. We arrived earlier than expected and seeing as our room wasn't ready we went to the Olive Branch for a coffee. Because we hadn't had breakfast we decided to have some of the buffet lunch. The food was lovely however I was a bit surprised at the price considering my husband didn't eat much. I think a menu on each table with the prices would be a good idea as some things I had I didn't know what they were.

We were shown to our room on the ground floor facing the pool. It was just as described although the small ant like insects that appeared at the kettle area each time we made coffee were a bit of a pest.
On the Friday it was my 40th Birthday and after a lie in and opening cards I had a delivery of fruit and cakes, compliments of the Mafraq, it was lovely.Thank you.

On a sour note, 3 nights out of the 5 were disturbed by our neighbours from 2am till 6-7am screaming and shouting each time, which in turn made us late at getting away to the race track on the Saturday due to being so tired. I know the hotel tried to deal with these people but to no avail, no respect for other paying guests.

We ordered room service on our last night which we both really enjoyed and the presentation did make you feel special.
I would say the only main negative is that it is quite far out the way and taxis are not as cheap as they used to be. The shopping mall that is 5 mins away is lovely with eateries however the taxi drivers don't know about it, so some info on it would be good to give the drivers.
I would recommend this hotel if your after somewhere quiet and out of the way and if you have a car.
