“Good venue.. but free parking is a hassle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Its a world class venue that holds great events, however the parking in the building is AED 10 per hour and so you easily end up paying for 3 hours parking by just visiting as you would end up staying, strolling for 3 hrs at least?
Food can be tad expensive if bought on site, but they have great restaurants on site.
Free parking is available if you are willing to park and walk for a bit.

“Huge space for a variety of exhibitions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

AS a tourist you are unlikely to visit here, unless there's an exhibition of interest - so check out their website.
ADNEC is vast and owned by the same people who run ExCel in London and either end are two contrasting and really nice hotels.
American group W run Abode at one side while Capital Hyatt has the greatest lean of any building in the world, including Pisa's leaning tower. Both hotels deserve a visit for drinks or food, but if time is short then Capital Hyatt wins for its eatery that seems to cling to the side of the building, with great views back towards the Etihad Towers end of the Corniche.

“Good provision, but not much there”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Stayed at Capital Gate, so went to have a look in.

What I saw was interesting; there is a lot of provision for exhibits, restaurants; halls, toilets etc

But there was just nothing there. Not even the bank was open.

I'd assume that on busy days it's great... but It wasn't always look that.

“Excellent space for Expos.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Located at a very prime place it is very easily accessible and excellent parking facilities with good ambiance. The length and breath of the Hall is so magnificent which allows the halls to operate at a different purposes. A good place for nice big size expos for business & marriage purposes. The beauty of The Capital Gate-Hyatt Hotel makes it one of the best place for luxury and business destinations in Abu Dhabi. I happened visit this place for a couple of times for expos which is local as well as international expos like International Book Festival and more to count. If you are thinking of exhibiting your products or services in Abu Dhabi this would be the best places to my suggestion.
