"Famous landmark hotel"
Built in 2009 by a New Yorker company this hotel still looks very new and beautiful. The roof is simply fascinating! Even with 499 rooms the hotel still seems calm and cosy. The staff everywhere is friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are much bigger than a normal size hotel room, it is modern, light-coloured, smart and has electric sockets everywhere (great). The view from the room was beautiful over the Yas Marina and the F1 track. The bathroom is smart! Consists of separate shower room and separate toilet. The AC is soundless and the air comes out over the window and not blowing in your face when you sleep. Every detail in this room is very well thought through. I think all the rooms have a nice size balcony with outdoor chairs. At night I can recommend the bar at the roof top, from here you have the best view of the structure of the roof and how it changes the colours. The Indian restaurant is marvellous, please try it (go for the crab soup and butter chicken). If you have time for a walk you can visit Yas Marina. Small but nice Marina. There is a beach club nearby (provides towels etc). Entrance to this beach club is complimentary if you stay in this hotel. This hotel is famous and you can see videos on You Tube about it, or Science channel on how they built the roof.
"A Comfortable Stay"
Overall experience was excellent. The rooms, the staff , their behaviour and courtesy , all of that were brilliant. I would like to and have a great stay again if i get a chance to come to abu dhabi . The atmosphere around, the sound of f1 cars racing , all of them were excellent. Thats all
Just returned from a short stay at the Yas Viceroy' stayed here 5 years ago and it has changed since then unfortunately not for the better, most of the shops and restaurants have now closed so not as much choice, the reception has undergone a refurb so it's not as glamorous as previous, just a long counter really in a nice foyer, we paid for breakfast on arrival mega mega expensive!!! Again not what it was previously so was very disappointed, the rooms where spotless and very nice, the hotel and pool areas where also very clean and very nice, It was a bonus to see the race track in use, cars, bike races, runs walks, It was a wonderful experience I would recommend the hotel however I would let you know it's very very expensive to eat and drink there.
"IFTAR AT THE VICEROY"
We were invited to an Iftar dinner at the Viceroy Hotel by Abu Dhabi University. The buffet consisted of a variety of food and desserts, that not only looked good, but were delicious. There was plenty of food for everyone, and many people went back for 2nd and 3rd helpings! I would definitely recommend the Viceroy Hotel for any buffet dinners, as it was well worth the trip!
My husband and I stayed here in July 2016 and had a great experience. We booked a suite which was beautiful with a good size lounge, bedroom and bathroom. The room also had great views of the racetrack and a long balcony. The roof top bar is really nice in the evenings with a selection of great cocktails and a great ambience. We also liked the swimming pools which were again, well designed and we very much enjoyed the adults only pool in particular. I would definitely recommend staying here as it's in a great location and has a good range of restaurants to choose from. We particularly liked the Indian restaurant where we had one of the best indian meals in a long time.
