Fabulous 8.6 From 293 reviews

Good 6.0
Good service, but room's aren't in the best shape.
I stayed here with my wife and the service from the staff was good. However, my hotel room had some mechanical issues and felt old and worn out. The mirror edging had corroded, the shower flooded, the tub faucet sprung a leak, the black furniture had lots of chips and damage, the floor lamp worked intermittently, the bidet sprayed out brown water, the hotel room lighting was dim and the view (through the small skinny windows) was not good. For a hotel rated 5-stars, I can't say I was impressed with it's condition. When I brought this to the attention of the front desk at check-out, they apologized and seemed to take my concerns seriously. The friendly lady offered us a buffet lunch and even decorated the table for us for our anniversary. So overall, I was happy with the service, but I feel the room's are in need of a serious renovation.

Not a happy check in
Check in process was awful and the hotel management did not deal with it as it supposed to. I would not return to it in the future.

Fair 4.0
Very disappointing
I often spend weekends in Abu Dhabi and it’s the 1st time i am that disappointed by a 5 star hotel. From the check-in until the check-out, my family has experienced bad service and the rooms were not up to the standard you can expect from Sofitel. We checked-in after 06.00pm and the rooms were not ready and they were a actually smelly. We realized a few hours later that a dirty baby diaper was still in the trash can and that one room was missing all bathroom toiletries. Only one bathrobe in each room was available. In the morning, there was no hot shower all morning so we all had to take a cold shower. Then we asked for some shampoo and shower gel and I had to call 7 times to finally have them delivered, one hour after I requested them.

Hotel ok
Very nice hotel, excellent breakfast but when you need to contact reception, it'is all the time very long and complcated to cover your request. Service is medium for an hotel of this class and price

Very Good 8.0
Nice, clean hotel, staff don’t speak great English
Nice hotel, very clean, the room was spacious and set out well. The English of hotel staff was not great, it was very hard to communicate. The location isn’t close to many restaurants or shops, although in saying that Abu Dhabi is very spread out so we did kind of expect this. Also the bar fridge in the room broke and leaked water all through our room and unfortunately we lost all of our cold food. The hotel did not offer any compensation for this.
