Hotel review overview
Nice new property, odd location

- May 2013
This is a new property, located roughly halfway between the airport and the city centre. Be aware that if you stay here, there won't be any public transportation available - you'll need to rely either on taxis (which of course are plentiful and affordable in Abu Dhabi) or have your own wheels. Being new, everything is in excellent condition and the rooms well appointed with all the amenities one could desire. Bonus points for having a separate shower AND bath in the bathroom. The hotel building has twin towers, one of them is the Novotel and the other one is ... the sister hotel Ibis. The restaurants, pool etc. are shared between the two so most of the things in this review apply to the Ibis too. I actually was initially booked to stay at the Ibis, but Novotel had a very nice last minute offer where a room plus breakfast was actually *cheaper* than my originally booked room and paying for the breakfast separately, so it was a bit of a no-brainer to switch hotels. Speaking of the breakfast - it was heavenly! An amazing spread of all kinds of breakfast items, both hot and cold and many different breads (including the Arabic staple: flatbread) are available in the buffet. They even had lovely Turkish coffee delivered straight to your table. Didn't try the restaurants for other meals. Spent half an hour at the pool waiting for my ride and it looked like a nice place too - a kidney shaped reasonably sized pool with a separate kids pool next to it, plenty of sun loungers and the requisite pool bar are all located on a terrace on the second floor. Another word on the location - there simply isn't anything out there. The hotel is next to the airport highway and some residential areas are a stone's throw away. But apart from a gas station some 500 meters away with some fast food outlets plus a mini market there's simply nothing of interest within walking distance. A city hotel this isn't! All in all this is a very nice hotel, just be aware of the location. Being relatively near the airport it is also handy for early morning flights and short overnight layovers (like I had).
