Good hotel. Staff are very good in all aspects, from reception to breakfast. Very polite and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. Centrally located for Abu Dhabis attractions. Good for a stop over on the way home. Would use this hotel again

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel experience, this is not it... I would most definitely opt to stay again at the Ritz-Carlton opposite the Canal instead. The hotel lacks the customer service you expect. On a positive note, the rooms were spacious and the Shangri La Souk is in walking distance to buy snacks for kids at...
