I stayed here with a friend for 5 nights in March 2013. My experience here was not enjoyable at all. The shower and bathroom in general was disgusting. There was mould growing on almost all the surfaces in the bathroom, the shower looked to be unfinished and leaked all over the bathroom floor. When booking this hotel it was advertised as having free wi fi. This is not the case. Internet access for approx $40 US a day! The staff were very rude to us and made us feel very uncomfortable to go through the lobby. They pushed their tours which were almost double what you could find through a different company and when we said no pushed it everytime they saw us and told us how we were making a bad mistake. (Came across threatening) Finally, the hotel claimed to be non smoking, or at least have non smoking levels. This was not the case, people were smoking throughout the hotel with ashtrays provided in a specificly ordered " non-smoking room". The hotel smelt like smoke. Loved Abu Dhabi, did not love this hotel.
