This is ideally located for those wanting to visit the amazing Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld or the Yas Marina Circuit, all of which can be seen from the hotel.

The hotel also offers an exquisite steakhouse serving the best prime steaks and grilled favourites, a modern and traditional Indian restaurant and an urban-chic lounge bar perfect to unwind with great ambience and music where delicious food and some great late night cocktails are served. Rooms are spacious and quiet with modern day amenities and come with a great bathroom which features a rain shower. Large, modern and comfortable rooms, pleasant outdoor pool and terrace, friendly and helpful staff. Marvellous!

It is very good, with a wonderful view! The personal is professional and it has a delicious breakfast. I've been here for a business trip, staying 1 night, but I hope I'll have the chance to return. Enjoy Abu Dhabi!

Nice, pleasant hotel with tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Required card for using elevators is a bit annoying. Location is good if you want to see marina circuit (walking distance) and if you want to visit theme parks. However beach is quite far away and vouchers (which you need to collect at the hotel) are required.

Wonderful hotel , room very comfortable , food was excellent ,very friendly staff views of racing track were great, We loved listening to the roar of the racing cars. The toiletries in bathroom were lovely and of excellent quality also having the lovely bath robes was a lovely touch . We could stay in this hotel with all its amenities without ever moving outside to do anything else . Our only regret was that we could not stay longer there as we had already arranged to go on a trip elsewhere. We will be back Read less

I was welcomed to a home away from with classy and highly capable staff that took our luggage’s on arrival and a great front desk with mannered tone and empathy as I was with a large family contingent. Prompt check in and my luggage was at our rooms. Sparkling and fresh looking rooms with all amenities you could have left in your posh home
