Elaine, gb2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Lovely 3 night break
Had a lovely 3 night stay. The hotel staff were great and we were very pleased with our room. The pool area was on the top floor and a touch windy when we were there so didn't use it that much. The immediate area outside the hotel is not the best but there is a supermarket nearby and plenty of taxi's to get about. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Mall near the Rotana Hotel.

This is my favourite hotel in Abu Dhabi. It isn't expensive and the facilities are great. The staff are friendly and really helpful. the rooftop pool area never seems to get too busy and is great for some relaxation time and soaking up the sun.
