Divya assisted me at the front desk. Muzaffar assisted me with my bags. The staff at the hotel are exemplary and the customer service was phenomenal my entire stay. They assisted me with my booking for epass for the Grand Mosque as well. The location is ideal for a quick trip to Ferrari World also. I recommend this location on a visit to Abu Dhabi if it’s on your list. I will definitely return.
