"Great Hotel with good facilities"
We spent 5 days at the Hilton in Corniche and were upgraded to a Junior Suite which by british standards needed a bit of upgrading I did not find the room apart from having more space luxurious at all, we were given access to the executive room and felt that service was very slow we sat for 20 minutes until being served and having to wait on staff to serve you a drink - only 2 members to a room full of people saying that the food was excellent. Having got the negative out the way the facilities were fantastic plenty of choice within the hotel, resturaunts good, bar, Jazz barr - excellent and a night club which we did not use. the beach facilities were excellent but you have to go under the road using an underpass to get to it, they had a wonderful pool bar open in the evening with great music. Staff on the premises were excellent and apart from the executive room they could not do enough for you, our room attendant kept our room spotless twice a day and was a very cheery chap. The area is good to reach even walk to the Emerites palace and shopping malls , but taxis are cheap and a trip to the Grand Mosque is a must if you visit the area.
"Very Nice hotel and Great Service"
I used to stay at this hotel 6-7 years ago. I recently booked and stayed for almost two weeks. Although the hotel itself is old but it still provides great customer service. They know how to take care of customers. Truly enjoyed the experience in the Executive Lounge morning breakfast and evening reception with friendly staff. In particular I remember Manish who is always there to ensure your mornings and evenings are enjoyable with fresh refreshments - Always taking care of everyone with dedications.
"Great location and service"
Great 2 week sun and beach holiday location . Perfect weather and service amazing especially Aalok in the restaurant and Abey our housekeeper , very impressed with their service and a delight to have them around . Only down side was the cost of drinks . Beautiful view of the corniche from 9th floor room and wound recommend fur a winter sun holiday as long as you don't want to Spend too much on drink
"Very good hotel / location"
We have visited Abu Dhabi & Dubai many times over the past 10 years and stayed at some of the most luxurious hotels the region has to offer, this hotel s not up there with the Grosvenor, Royal Meridian or some of the Rotana hotels in terms of lucking the part, but what it does have is old world charm which a lot of the other hotels in the Middle East have lost (or never had). OK it's a fairly old hotel but the service from the minute you arrive to when you depart is first class, the facilities are excellent and its beach club and private beach are lovely. The hotel is also in an excellent location for walking on the corniche or along the tide break to the marina mall, there is also a really good Waitrose supermarket does down the street, (excellent for your snacks). If you take an exec room you get breakfast, afternoon tea and free beers in the evening, in all seriousness a very good and reasonably priced hotel, you won't go wrong here....
On the surface, this is a five star hotel. The facilities are great, the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the lobby, restaurants and other general areas of the hotel are great. The rooms are rather drab, perhaps more akin to a four star hotel. The bathroom was good, but attention to detail on the decor was poor. Still, it was kept clean and stocked, and I'm a sucker for a dressing gown and slippers! Breakfast was good. Lost to choose from. Waiters were friendly and smiley every day. The restaurants were OK. The best one is Jade - the Chinese restaurant. In and around the hotel you get "tourist tax" added to all your drinks and food bills. To save some money eat out in the malls. If you travel as far as Yas Island then there is no tourist tax there.
