We have been for the third time at the Emirate Palace, usually during Christmas and New Year, this time after the Chinese New Year, which ment a great number of Chinese guests. The hotel is still top class, though it seems that they are saving somewhat on staff. A very unfortunate thing was the road constructions around the hotel, so that you cannot walk at the moment to the Corniche, but always have to take a taxi, which however is extremely cheap, considering prices in Europe. We have been upgraded, due to the fact that we have already been in the hotel three times, however had to ask for an upgrade, else we would have been placed as ordered. We appreciated however that we received a room already very early in the morning, as we arrived already at 06:30 at the Airport of Abu Dhabi. Take halfboard and you will enjoy the great buffet at the French Restaurant.
It is the first time we went with our grow-up daughter and found also for the first time, that we could not share one room (although it would have been big enough), but had to order two rooms. This is rather unusual, as for families it is quite common everywhere that a room may be shared by 3 or even 4 members of family.
Abu Dhabi is growing enourmously and contrary to Dubai they are building up cultural highlights such as a phantastic Opera House, a Louvre-type museum and more, but all of it will only be built in a few years time.
Generally we once again enjoyed our stay at the Emirates Palace, where they have a good nightlife for the young people, but also plenty of possibilities for families.
