“Solid!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The best part of this hotel is the location; it is just a five minute walk from the international air terminal in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The hotel does not have all the resources that a four-star hotel would have, in fact there was no way to make any domestic or international phone calls from the hotel for guests or staff (at the time). The lobby contains a café that doubles as a bar in the evenings, there is also a restaurant that serves a full breakfast buffet in the mornings.

The furnishings and style of the hotel remind me of a college dorm or hospital. The style is very simplistic, almost generic. Pillows are small and the beds are very firm. Despite that lack of finishing touches the rooms are clean, well maintained and all utilities are in excellent working order.

You won't be disappointed if you just need some rest before the next flight.

My wife & I transited here for one night en route from Australia to the UK. From the efficient and friendly welcome, the spacious and comfortable room with king bed through to the copious and varied buffet breakfast, the hotel offers an excellent value for money experience. Although situated on the airport complex just a short walk from T3, there was no noise disturbance and we certainly enjoyed a comfortable night's rest. Our only regret was that we had insufficient time to try the rooftop pool.

Unhesitatingly recommended and we would stay there again when transiting through Abu Dhabi.

My husband and I visited for a night and the hotel was far beyond our expectations. Firstly, it didn't look like a budget hotel - the lobby, restaurant and in-house Costa Coffee were all real luxuries, especially in terms of their size. The hotel room itself was very clean and well-planned - had nice little touches like mirrors with bright bulbs for the ladies, a hair dryer, and enough room to make it more than comfortable for a couple. It was even able to accommodate a family of four with a sofa and a pull out bed! The service was really up to the mark as well and pretty damn friendly. My only advice - perhaps a shower cap in the bathroom!

We stayed here on a 10 hour overnight stop-over in Abu Dhabi.

The hotel was very easy to find and we'll signed from the terminals. It was pleasant to be able to transit by foot in air conditioned comfort.

The staff were faultless: well presented, polite, attentive, and informative. They made for a seamless check in process - which is always well received after a long flight.

The rooms were basic in design; however noting the target audience is primarily short term travelers, the rooms were more than acceptable. Everything was spotlessly clean; there is a wall mounted TV that had a number of English speaking programs; large widows to let in ample amount of light; a wardrobe with safe; small fridge (no mini bar); and a bathroom complete with a shower-in-bath design. The bed was large and comfortable as were the pillows - combined with the block out curtains, this makes for a good nights sleep.

We weren't there long enough to check out the restaurant, pool, or other amenities; however if they are inline with the rest of the hotels standards I imagine they would be very good.

Overall, a very enjoyable, comfortable stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler needing a good sleep between flights.

Comfortable, clean, quiet hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great that you can just walk to hotel from airport. You walk past plenty of ATMs, a pharmacy, an italian cafe, McDonalds, O'Briens Sandwich Bar and Costa Coffee. More shops in the Skypark Plaza to open including a spa, supermarket and medical center. Free wifi with good strength throughout the hotel. Complimentary bottled water which is always appreciated when you check in and are tired and thirsty.

Good food at the restaurant (well cooked and seasoned garlic chilli prawns linguine for lunch and their not too cheesy nachos hit the spot when I had the 2am munchies after coming back from a music concert since I didn't have dinner). Good drinks at the bar: after showing them a recipe off the web, they even made me a cocktail that was not on their menu. Good to see this flexibility from the bar staff. I also liked the chill out music they play in the background.

Excellent free scheduled shuttle buses to various destinations which guests really appreciate. The hotel even put on free shuttle buses to the concert on Yas Island so they really do look after their guests. For reference it's around AED65-70 one way taxi ride to Marina Mall.

The shaded rooftop pool/jacuzzi was well set out with towels and comfortable sunbeds provided and an additional private sunlounge area away from the pool....but it's hot (40C)! I didn't use the gym.

However the only unneccessary inconvenience during my two night stay was the 11am scheduled shuttle bus left 18 minutes late and it went for a 30 minute detour (round trip), as it was not on the way to our scheduled stops.

This was done to assist a couple who wanted to go to Ferrariworld but missed the 10am shuttle. This was not really fair to the other 15 bus passengers, especially the group going to the Grand Mosque, which is only a 20 minutes trip. It just didn't make sense to do this. If the couple wanted to go by shuttle bus, then they should be dropped off last. Then they can decide if they want to take the shuttle bus or take a AED15-20 taxi ride instead - taxis waiting out front. Hopefully the hotel staff will bear this in mind for the future.

Overall a fuss free stay, which is what every traveller wants. A highly recommended hotel if the location suits your travel plans. For a 3 star hotel, I received much better value, service, and attitude, than from 4 or 5 star hotels around the world. Keep up the standard and value and people will be back.

Stayed there during a 13 hour stop over. The hotel is in a really good location. The front desk offered excellent, polite and attentive service. The room was really clean and modern looking. All in all this is excellent value for money.
