I booked to stay here as my friend had already been staying in the hotel for a couple of months.
I arrived at 12.45 in the afternoon and asked if there were any rooms ready for me to check in early. Was told 'no sir' - which wasn't a big issue for me, so I asked for them to call up to my friend's room to let him know I'd arrived, as I would drop my bags in his room.
The annoying thing was that having firstly been told there were no rooms ready, they then immediately gave me the room next door to my friend, which was clearly ready and suggested there were more than likely many rooms available. It strikes me odd why, when give the opportunity to do a tiny thing which shows they can go the extra mile, the lady on reception was purposely unhelpful and had my friend not been staying there, I could easily have sat in reception for 90 minutes for no reason at all until she deemed I could check in.
Other than that, I can't really fault the place, room was comfortable albeit basically furnished, bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom was clean and functional. Room service was good when I called down for extra water in the night, and the Wifi worked ok. Location is pretty good. Didn't try the coffee shop, but again breakfast included at this price is a bonus.
At the price point, I seriously doubt you will get better value for money in Abu Dhabi, and I will probably stay here again when travelling alone in the future.
