Very good 8,0
Pleasant Stay
It was pleasant. Thanks. The reception and concierge staff were great. So was Edna at the lobby cafe, thank you. The housekeeping were helpful when the iron and board were not available. You just need to increase the number of condiments in the room. One doesn't have to call for sugar coffee or milk every time.

A happy surprise in Abu Dhabi
the southern sun hotel in AD was a great surprise to our visit to the UAE, after we were not sure about date/time of our stay before we left Canada, we booked online while in Dubai, just a couple days prior, and our first choice of hotel became outpriced and no longer a great value at all, but Southern Sun Hotels offered a great room with a view, free wifi, parking and an excellent buffet breakfast at a rate that was just right. We pre-plan everything so this was a treat that check in went smooth, parking our rental was easy, the room, breakfast and hotel amenities were perfect for our brief stay. walking distance to shops/dining, the Corniche and a hotel shuttle to area sights such as the Louvre and Saandiyat Beach made it just right. The best surprise was the roof top pool and lounge by day and by night, an Oasis within the city hustle and bustle. look forward to coming back next year already.
