As we were excited to explore the hotel started with The swimming pool on the 9th floor called as “Wet deck” met wonderful people from Sri Lanka, Mr. Niyaz and Mr. prasanjith... they just took good care of us. We had free shuttle busses to Ferrari world, Warner and bros, yas mall etc. Mr Sandeep was good from the room service he was really very kind. I would highly recommend this hotel. Would be back soon!!! Read less

This hotel is amazing and located in Yas Island, over the Formula 1 track, which is about 35km from central ADhabi. It is a W Hotel and is upmarket, however, we were staying on a 4 night stopover and were not dressed for hotel chic but don’t be put off by this as the hotel staff were very attentive and friendly regardless of our ‘travelling out if a suitcase for the last 8 weeks look’ ! We had a twin room overlooking the track in main building (RM 1435). The rooms are very spacious with balcony, two king single beds, lounge area and large bathroom with separate toilet. Nescafé coffee machine, tea and mini bar. We booked room + breakfast which was a just over $300 (AUS) per night. Breakfast is 125 Direms pp ($50 AUS). Breakfast caters for all nationalities (no bacon) and is served inside or on the terrace which is lovely in winter months. Hotel is great for Theme Park access and is close to Yas Mall. There is a free bus service from the hotel which takes you to all the Theme Parks, beach and Yas Mall. Also there is a free bus which takes you to the Louvre. Hotel bar and pool on the 9th floor is for over 21’s only which was a shame as we had our 18 year old daughter with us so we could not take advantage of this lovely space. There is a kids pool in the Marina Wing. To eat at the restaurants here is very expensive - $15 for a coffee, $45 for a burger. We went to Yas Mall and ate at the food court - not the most ideal but a necessity if you want to keep costs down. Most days there were fast cars of all types flying round the track which was amazing to see - we loved this aspect of the hotel. We flew into Dubai - it was a 90 min drive in a taxi and cost 360 Direms. All taxis only take cash. Note there is a municipality tax of 10 Direm per night per room which is paid separately to your hotel bill. Highly recommend this hotel. Read less

I'm currently staying in the W and and cannot believe the noise!! I came here to work and was hoping to have a few days relaxing inbetween. After 6 hours of deafening noise from the race track I am regretting this decision. I requested a quiet room to ensure I could get work done. I met a colleague today and we had to scrap our meeting as we were literally shouting at each other to be heard. I then came to my (quiet) room hoping to get work done only for another 4 hours of constant noise which is still going on. It really is quite ridiculous. DO NOT come here if you are wanting to relax by the pool, do any work, or hear yourself think. I'm supposed to be staying 8 nights but with this constant engine roaring outside my room I will be checking out. It is a shame as the hotel itself is nice and the staff are pleasant and very accommodating but I am not paying top notch prices to be stressed as I am. Read less
