Feel like 5 star hotel
Room is awesome, staff is kind. Buffet breakfast is a steal , food is too good for the price i paid. Taxi is waiting at hotel outside, good location to travel to Yas or mosque.

Excellent hotel in handy location
Enjoyed my 2 day stay at the Southern Sun Abu Dhabi. My room was spacious and well equipped. The restaurants are very good with a nice selection at good prices. The staff are very helpful and the service is very good. The location of the hotel is very handy, with everything a short taxi ride away. I would recommend staying at this hotel.

Excellent, comfortable stay.
Really enjoyed my stay here. From a welcoming and courteous check-in to the excellent facilities it was a wonderful stay and I would definitely stay again. The bedroom was spacious and very lofty, making it feel open and comfortable. The only negative side here was the glass/plastic transparency of the bathroom with no blinds/curtains to pull down, so it means if you are travelling as a couple there is zero ability to have privacy while bathing etc. The rooftop pool is excellent, the gym is spacious and well equipped, the location is good and near the seafront, and it is a short taxi ride to nearby sights - when the weather is cooler it would also be easy to walk to nearby places to eat. The breakfast buffet was heaven and the staff were very helpful at all times. Really a great experience.

Contemporary chic hotel
A very cost effective hotel in the city. The rooms were large and nicely decorated. A service station next door to stock up on snacks and drinks. The Foundry restaurant was delicious. A friend lived here for 2 months in a one bedroom suite and loved it. I stayed 2 days and didn't want to leave 😀

Nice hotel
Sauna and steam bath were not ready for use. Front desk staff needs improvement in customer service skills.
