    excellent customer service”

    Stayed in room 1314. Very polite and helpful staffs. Thanks Rubi of the reception for being considerate with my request regarding the room. Mr.Anees (bellboy i think) and Mr.Idris (housekeeper) were very helpful also. Forgot the name of the other staff in the lobby area who's on night shift, he always welcomes and greeted us everytime we comeback in the hotel, always willing to assist and always wear a beautiful smile. Stayed in a some of hotels in Abu Dhabi, so far this is the one with best customer service . thank you guys. will come back for sure.

    Hotel did not honour Agoda rate apparently due to late arrival. Very disappointed with that as we had to pay for the full weeks stay on arrival costing more than Dhs 200 on top of the Agoda rate. Will not be using this hotel in future.

    We only stayed for 2 nights, room was comfortable, location was good with burger king and plenty of shops with in walking distance, Never a problem getting a taxi. Staff were ok, did their job but nothing extra. Breakfast was included in our booking but on check in were told only 1 person per room was allowed breakfast included but we were never charged for the extra person on check out strangely, breakfast good with plenty of options, this was the only food we ate at the hotel.

    This is my third stay at this hotel. It is a nice 3-4 star hotel that is close to a lot of things. World Trade is within walking distance. The malls are only around 5-6 dirhams on a taxi. The staff is wonderful especially the front staff Princess and Mary. They are very helpful. Housekeeping is clean. Food at the Chinese restaurant on the second floor is excellent.

    This is my favorite one in AD city. It is not managed by staff well but has something free for Guest. Some of visitor are not likely to prefer this one. Just recommend if you are casual. Tip : Finding parking space behind the building is impossible. Don't bring your vehicle.
