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.

OK hotel for its price but subpar neighbourhood
Hotel itself was ok for its price. However, its neighbourhood was not so great as there were a lot of strangers hanging around and trying to sell fake iphones and stuff. They kept following me while speaking in Arabic which made it really uncomfortable for me. In addition, it doesn't have a parking lot and if you bring a car, you have to park in pay parking lot under a nearby building. To be fair, if you are going to be here just for a sleep without your car, it is okay hotel to stay. But otherwise I wouldn't recommend.

Choose another hotel
For a long time this was the only hotel I would stay in in Abu Dhabi because the service was so excellent. The hotel is very dated. And it is not in a great part of town. The front desk staff has gotten to be rude and unhelpful but the bell man is the nicest person you're meet in the world! I have stopped staying here because of the poor service.
