    Poor 2,0
    I left a clothing item in my room. I realized about 5 hours after checking out and called the property. They eventually got back to me and said the cleaners were not able to find the item. So that says a lot. For sure I left the item there. The checkin and overall customer service was below standards for a 5 star hotel. For sure will not be returning there. Not worth it.

    Fantastic Hotel!
    Fantastic Hotel, with amazing staff and facilities. We stayed there for 8 days and had a great stay. Nothing was too much for the staff. They were always friendly and attentive. Will definitely stay here again and would recommend this to everyone staying in Abu Dhabi. The view from our balcony of the Emirates Palace and Palace Hotel were amazing!!

    Amazing time except the pillows were way too soft for me or my partner. Head sunk right through which means we did quiet get the good sleep we wanted

    Beautiful Hotel, staff only average
    I've now stayed at more than a dozen different hotels in Abu Dhabi City over the years and can honestly say the hotel itself is one of the nicer ones you will find. It's dry so there is no alcohol though. Breakfast buffet was fantastic and the pool and fitness center are really nice too. The only issues you will find, similar to the whole country, is a bunch of hotel staff that don't really care and just do the minimum. Also, if you need a non-smoking room don't fall for the 'refreshed room' upon check in. Ask for another room. The last thing I'll mention is that the location is at the very end of the corniche so it's quiet and removed from any action you can walk to. Taxis are also getting more and more expensive (like EVERYTHING in Abu Dhabi) so you'll spend $7 to $15 to go just about anywhere in the city. I paid about $75 a night which is a good value, anything over $100 and you might look elsewhere.
