“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Stayed at this Holiday Inn for 2 night for business. The STAFF were very nice, friendly and professional. They all went out of their way to make sure everything was good. The fruit plate was a nice touch in my room. The rooms were very comfortable. the breakfast buffet was great. The waiting staff were so nice and helpful. Especially the Hussein at the Lemon Tree. I will definitely stay there again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for highlighting our strongest asset~our friendly team & their passion to make our valued guests feel right at home!

Running a close second, is the quality of the food we are told, & you have mentioned our breakfast buffet. I have no doubt that friendly Hussein also served you a delicious Mediterranean meal at Lemon Tree!

We look forward to having the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards,

Sid Sattanathan

I recently stayed for 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn on Airport Road Abu Dhabi. The hotel is very well appointed a provides a perfect sanctuary for those traveling on business or for those visiting he City. The food is superb and the staff polite and attentive.

From the buffets to the a la carte and them nights in the Lemon Tree, the cuisine and service is first class.

The General Manger is a perfect host, supported by a top class team.

My favourite Maitre D was Antonio and his staff in the Lemon Tree, Eka, Michelle and Hussein. Thank you for making my staff so pleasant. See you again soon.

Mike Mason

Room Tip: The views from the front of the hotel are superb. Corner rooms are first class.

We stayed at The Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi for 5 nights as part of our half term week watching England -v - Pakistan cricket ODI. The staff were so nice & helpful, particularly the doormen and the very attentive restaurant staff. The rooms are very comfortable- the beds and bedding gave us top quality sleeping and we had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Our 3 teenage sons enjoyed the rooftop pool & gym which are on the small size but more than adequate.So far as location is concerned, as we were on holiday the fact that the hotel is near to the massive exhibition centre and clearly a selling point for business guests was of no consequence to us, but taxis are plenty and very cheap ( apx £ 5 GBP to get to the seafront- Corniche) so it was no problem getting anywhere in Abu Dhabi.
If only all Holiday Inns were as good as this one!

Dear Guest,

We are glad to hear you enjoyed the stay & took advantage of our proximity to the Cricket stadium to cheer your team onto their win!

Thank you also for sharing that our central location makes all attractions within easy reach by both hotel, & public taxis which are very affordable in Abu dhabi.

We do hope to welcome you back soon, & hopefully you will not wait for the next cricket series to pay us & Abu dhabi a visit! There is so much more to do here!

Kind regards,

I stayed at this hotel for over 60 days this year and it was an extremely enjoyable experience. The staff at the Holiday Inn is beyond friendly and they do everything they can to go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The food there is excellent and the brunch on Friday is one of the best in town. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Abu Dhabi.

We stayed here in late January. The room was facing the towers in the back of the hotel, but we still had a stunning view over a bit from the skyline and especially the sunset.
The room was clean, spacious and we had everything we needed. Only theminibar does not seem to be very cool. We tried to cool some drinks and this was not very successful (actually this happens to us 2 years ago as well, so maybe it is not a problem of the minibar but a wanted temperature). So we ordered some ice cubes every evening to get our drinls properly cooled.
The 31st bar is a great place to be!
The view is very nice, you even cansee the Big Mosque. The staff is great everywhere in the hotel, but we do have to point out Mary from 31st bar. She is doingreally great!
She is caring, very kind, has an absolute good memory and she was giving us a really great time! Thank you again, Mary!

All in all, we had a great time,and the staff of Holiday Inn made us relax and feel comfortable and absolutely welcome.
Thank you, I am sure, we will see us again.
