“Not a five star hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

The hotel itself is fine but is not a five star hotel by any stretch of the imagination, it's more of a two star (nothing wrong with that but this isn't the Wynn in Las Vegas). It looks kind of grungy from the outside, but the rooms are clean and HUGE and fully equipped. Unfortunately mine smelled of cigarette smoke.

Parking is free but by valet only which means you have to leave your car keys with them and call reception to have it brought out front.

Great hotel in the tourist club area of Abu Dhabi, walking distance to the corniche with amazing views over the city

Never used their restaurant but the guys at the hotel are very helpful

The pool and mini gym on the top are excellent and that little whirlpool is an added bonus

Stayed for over two weeks for a business trip along with family and it was pretty comfortable stay. Food was ok and best part was 24 hrs room service. Markets, Abu Dhabi mall, shops are very very close by so never had shortage of any thing. Room has decent kitchen utensils to make you feel home. Internet is free and speed is also decent.

Staff was supportive and helpful excluding one of their cleaners who has been very unfriendly and ill mannered. Even the room cleaner would come after 10 reminders to operator and would come at 3PM to clean the room.

Their IT guy helped alot with my customized IT needs which kept me into business.

Overall, it was a no hastle stay and will consider another stay with them.

I stayed here whilst on business in a studio apartment. The accommodation is located in a handy location near to Abu Dhabi Mall and the Meridian Hotel.

There is a nice pool and Jacuzzi on the top floor which is quiet most of the time. There is also a beauty parlour and a small restaurant on site although I did not use it. Parking is taken care of for you by the guys in the lobby and they are very helpful.

In honesty, the accommodation is ready for a refurb and looks a little tired compared with other similarly priced accommodation although it is kept clean and tidy.

There are a few shops by the hotel including a greengrocers, spar type shop and a great tailors if you need to get anything shortened quickly and at a reasonable price. There is also a post office up the road need the Co Operative.

If you need a base on arriving in Abu Dhabi then this is worth considering.

Room Tip: Floor 5 and above are best. I faced the main road but was not affected by noise. Don't discoun...

Staff were so hospitable and couldnt be any more helpful! Suite was lovely and interior decor generally in the hotel was of lovely taste. This location was convenient to our destination for a wedding we had to attend but we did not expect such a beautiful hotel.
We would not hesitate to come back to Vision Links!!

Stayed here from 18.11.13 to 21.11.13 in a Studio suite apartment as a couple. They allowed me early check-in and gave room on 18th floor. Hats off. Check in even @ 0900 hours against the normal 1400 hour was a breeze and within mins. The staff was cordial, prompt and zealous to help. The room was very well appointed, very neat and apt to perfection. Walking distance from Abu Dhabi mall and various fast food joints. Taxis available around the clock just beneath the hotel. They have a lovely swimming pool. In close proximity to various tourist destinations in Abu Dhabi. My advise plz consider this hotel before any place else in Abu Dhabi.

With work on Saadiyat Island we needed somewhere close by and Vision Apartments are fine since it is a couple of minutes from the Shk Khalifa Highway. With a small lounge, kitchenette and separate bedroom, the rooms are a reasonable size. The place is clean, if a little dated, and the staff seem genuinely helpful.

It is handy for some of the local hotels and restaurants but the price to pay for this is that it can a bit noisy at night. Parking is a nightmare in the area but that is true for all of Abu Dhabi.

Basically for a business trip or longer term stay it is fine and well priced. The only warning would be to avoid the breakfast. At AED 50 and with limited offer, it is overpriced and understocked. Go to the supermarket over the road and use the kitchenette.

Room Tip: Higher the better. There is a lot of street noise
