AFOC is a huge hotel and sports complex located mid-way between the airport and central Abu Dhabi and next to the Grand Mosque.
The standard rooms seem similarly furnished with a comfortable bed, sofa, work desk and more than sufficient storage for clothes and other belongings. Fresh fruit and bottled water is replenished daily and rooms are serviced twice daily. The large flat screen TV has a wide variety of channels and includes a good number of English speaking options. Internet access can be purchased but all in our party found it relatively slow by normal European standards. My only negative experience was a partially deaf neighbour who liked to watch TV on high volume early into the morning. Perhaps some sound insulation could be considered for wall mounted TVs?
The fitness centre is one of the largest I have seen and although busy in the evenings it provides almost every piece of fitness equipment currently available.
The breakfast is high quality and has lots of variety but is a long walk from all of the bedrooms and this can add around 20 minutes to your first meal of the day. We also ate at The Taverna where the quality of the pub food was better than we had expected from all in our group.
If visiting Abu Dhabi again I would probably choose another hotel only due to the location of the AFOC and the need to rely on taxis to make the 30 minute journey to the centre.
