Travel Blogs from Abu Dhabi
Later that afternoon (see previous blog) we were advised that we would be arriving in Abu Dhabi at 9pm to the tumultuous welcome of fireworks. This is to celebrate the MSC Lirica's first visit to the Emirates. As we are on the late sitting for dinner (at 8:30pm) this meant we would miss all the fun so decided to forgo our dinner and moving on to …
Today, even though it was hot (approx 40 degrees) we went on a Big Bus Tour stopping and visiting the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque and we were blown away with the intracacies and beauty of this building.
The white marble, hand weaved carpets, marble carvings, crystal chandelier and hand laid tiling was a sight to see. So were the nansonderun!!! As …

What a place to visit, absolutely fabulous, the grand mosque was very grand.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We booked this hotel as our cruise ended in Abu Dhabi and being an F1 fan wanted to visit the race track. The hotel was perfect! Located an easy 10 minute walk from the track entrance but there is a free circular bus that leaves just outside the hotel on the hour (from 12 noon to 9pm) which stops at the circuit and also Ferrari World. The hotel has a free shuttle available to the Mall and taxis are cheap to use to get around.
We arrived at the hotel at 9.30am and found we could check in as our room was ready. This was a standard room but was large, bright and comfortable. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Tea/coffee making facilities and a mini bar were provided. The glass window to the bathroom was a bit strange but although the blinds hid any embarrassment they did nothing to block the light if you got up during the night.
During our stay we ate in the breakfast restaurant, Stills restaurant and beside the pool - all the food was well cooked and well presented.
Every member of staff we had contact with was so pleasant, helpful and professional - they did everything they could to make our stay a pleasant experience.
The hotel is spotlessly clean and all the public areas are large and comfortable.
If I ever return to Abu Dhabi this will be my first choice of hotel.
