Not sure I’d bother next time!
Generally happy with the stay had a good sized corner room on the 16th floor so it was quiet for our 4 day stay. On the middle day we had no maid so had to ring for toilet roll etc. but apart from that the cleaning service was good. However reception were not so good gave the impression that couldn’t really be bothered to serve. This lack of attention cause them to give poor advice about an airport taxi which was totally in correct resulting in me and the night porters having real difficulty getting a taxi a 4am making me late for check in. Don’t believe the taxi shuttle in the details they don’t offer it!

Comfortable Hotel Near Corniche
This is an affordable, good quality hotel near the Abu Dhabi corniche. The rooms have ambient rather than direct lighting, which was a good use of room space and soothing in the evening, but seemed to be a bit dark during the day. The walls are also a bit thin, as I heard stuff happening in the next room. Breakfast is solid. The valets have a really odd sense as to when they should and should not offer assistance. There is always a taxi outside, and it is an easy ride to the Louvre and the Heritage Village, though Zayed Mosque is more distant.
