            The staff as in most hotels in Abu Dhabi were very polite and extremely helpful. The bathroom was well equipped and the room size generous.

            Food and drink in the in hotel cafe was rather expensive.

            It was inside the city and was pleasure to go for shopping, resturants, and was very to easy to get the transport and mall were nearby etc. it was very speacial deal offer by the I enjoy this hotel and would like to come back if I get this special offer.

            Well for entertainment there wasn't more asians tv channels were available. Now a days E-Visions provides a too many channels why this hotels don't provide too much tv channels. I would like to convince the hotel management to provide more tv channels for entertainments, thou too much tourist visit in this country and they donot have of their choice of tv channels.

            The service was very good. The staff upgraded our rooms to a superior level and we got a very pleasant stay. There is a buffet which is a bit expensive but really handful in case of need, with a great variety of food.

            The hotel is nice and clean with good facilities. It's location is accessible, very near to everything. The room is very spacious and comfortable with free internet. Hotel staffs are accomodating, helpful and polite. Hotel rate is very affordable.=)

            The only thing that I didn't like here is that when I booked for this hotel, it was mentioned that there will be a free bottle of champagne...and when we arrived there we were informed that there will be no champagne, and that, it was just a technical error...=(

            This was probably the best hotel out of the 20+ we stayed at during our 2 month trip to Europe...staff were very attentive, very comfortable rooms couldnt have aked for more.

            The room is quite spacious, clean, breakfast was good enough though there weren't much varieties. You kind of getting the same dishes over and over again for few days. The location was not quite the touristy area, however, it will take you basically to everywhere within 15 mins by cab. Nearest being the Madinat Zayed Shopping which is just a stone throw away.
