Positive Reviews

A good location

This hotel isn't too far from many of the best shops in the city so if you're in town to do some shopping, you'll find plenty near the hotel. It's also not far from the Corniche which is the most popular beach area in the area.

Great for those on a budget

This hotel is a good option for those that want to stay central but don't want to pay huge room rates. The place is clean and the rooms are large which is a nice bonus.

Negative Reviews

Poor attitude from staff

Guests have had numerous issues with the staff at this hotel saying that they were unprofessional in their attitude and manner. Issues were not resolved as they should have been and basic services were not carried out at all. Not a great way to start a trip to Abu Dhabi.

In need of an upgrade

The rooms at this hotel are getting a little old and worn and so could do with a bit of work. They aren't terrible but guests reckon they could get better elsewhere. Overall it's a cheap hotel with a cheap feeling throughout.

Strange goings on

There are lots of people hanging around this hotel which makes guests feel uncomfortable. They also complained of shouting and a lot of noise from the bar at night.
