    Great Place to stay in Abu Dhabi
    Excellent hotel, the Club Access is well worth the small additional cost. The free shuttle bus to the beach and Malls is a bonus. The only slight down side is that although the hotel is only a few years old is the black ash finish which is everywhere is beginning to show signs of wear.

    Very good 8.0
    Nice, clean hotel, staff don’t speak great English
    Nice hotel, very clean, the room was spacious and set out well. The English of hotel staff was not great, it was very hard to communicate. The location isn’t close to many restaurants or shops, although in saying that Abu Dhabi is very spread out so we did kind of expect this. Also the bar fridge in the room broke and leaked water all through our room and unfortunately we lost all of our cold food. The hotel did not offer any compensation for this.
