“Good business hotel”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stayed here for one night in transit through Abu Dhabi and it served it's purpose well. It's a lovely hotel and great lobby area. The buffet in the restaurant was also amazing. The room was also very well decorated and we had great views of the mosque. It's also close to the airport and only a few minute taxi to the mosque. It is quite a ways away from other sites like the Grand Palace.
The two downsides which prevented me from giving it five stars is check in process seemed to be a bit frantic and took a long time - for them to just tell us our room was not ready. Also, while it has great views of the mosque, it's really just on a river/canal and besides the mosque, is really not an appealing view.

sat and had dinner over the waterfront, absolutely perfect. The hotel is amazing, we didn't stay here but walked through and it's just out of this world in its set up and complexity, including a stream running through the middle of the actual hotel! Worth a visit, just beautiful.

My husband and I had a stop over at the Shangri-La, Abu Dhanbi on the way back from Europe to Australia. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was a slight problem with the confirmed airport transfer that was arranged via email through a Reservations Agent at Shangri-La Hotel. It did not arrive. However, the night manager at the airport hotel desk arranged a transfer for us within half an hour and we were apologised to, given an upgrade and some extras as an apology. The rooms are excellent, very spacious and very well equipped. They have an excellent gym and pool.

We were there in July, during Ramadan, so just be aware you can not drink alcohol before 7pm. In the morning it is extremely quiet as everyone is fasting. The service in the morning buffet was fantastic. They anticipate your every need and are very friendly and helpful. The quality of the food was excellent. As we had an early flight on our departure day, we had a small buffet breakfast and then they made us a huge fruit box as well, as we couldn't take full advantage of the buffet.
After 7pm the restaurants are EXTREMELY busy. We ate at the Hanoi Vietnamese restaurant. The quality of the food is good but it is overpriced.

Overall, a beautiful hotel in a lovely location with absolutely excellent staff.

This is worth a visit even if you are staying elsewhere it's an enormous complex of interlocked hotels , residences ,shops and restaurants and although not Las Vegas or Dubai it's small oasis of beauty facing the canal

We stayed in this hotel a few years ago, but it's still worth to write a nice review. This was for sure the best hotel i have ever been. I had beautiful room with a large bath and an amazing terace with a breath taking view to the Musk. Breakfast choice was superb but for sure the best was the chocolate fontain with fresh fruits. The staff was very nice and helpful; they also organized for us daily trips to the musk, shopping malls and safari. We also like the venice gondols that take us to the hotel bazar. This is for sure one of the best luxury hotels in the area. I hope to come back one day in this beautiful place!
