Rated 3 out of 5 by JEF273 Good business hotel
I have stayed several times at this hotel, I like the atmosphere and the room. nice views.
Yet I am a Gold Member, this time I was not recognised as an SPG Gold Member, I was giver the purple card "Preferred SPG Member" and was not offered the "complementary drink, internet, or points", reception employee did not ware a name tag, so I can't refer back to him
This hotel will be GRATE if there is a SPA in it

I would recommend it as an affordable option with friendly staff. But the room was not clean, we found a big ball of hair on the carpet and the toilet was not clean

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ali51 Braekfast Service
First of all, when arrival during the check-in I paid for the braekfast in advance for the 4 nights. The next day they could not find my on the list of the guests so they call the Reception to verify my name, the second day one of the Restaurant staff was going tho charge me for the breakfast. during the 3 nights no one from your service staff offered me a service except in the last day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Etihadflyer Good facilities with friendly hotel staff.
The hotel was so good.
Hotel facilities were new and fully equipped to satisfied with my needs.
Moreover, most of hotel staff, especially all of those who were at the front counters were so friendly with hospitality mind. I appreciated for the help from them during the stay in Abu Dhabi. Thank you!

Hotel is extremely nice. Only the thing is they should have some good vegetarian options in the food as we are pure vegetarian so we were having lack of choices.
A very nice location and the staff and manager was really kind and helpful specially Mr. Amar the DM of the hotel and i'm sorry to forget the name of a guy who did our check-in.
Thank you all very much from my heart.

We liked the hotel. It is a good choice especially for business travelers. Reception guy was very polite and ready to help.Unfortunately the pool bar staff was unaware of our 20% discount on F&B and without giving any reason charged us full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Razzou Highly Efficient and Cool @ Good Value
The hotel is closer than the city ones to Shk Zaid Grand Mosque and Ferrari World; attractions that my partner and I wanted to see. Was apprehensive booking it initially given some limitations of what Aloft offer at another locations. But the stay proved GREAT, including the return value.
Whether at reception, room-service or restaurants the staff provided nice service. SPG recognition was good for the Aloft category; got the suite with larger area and coffee-machine, breakfast and several complimentary vouchers for beverages. The Operations Director followed-up with an e-mail re the stay arrangement after I checked-in; so reassuring.
EXCELLENT 12th floor facilities at night, with nice view. And do not miss the pool area, day or night.
Trendy and cool surroundings, pleasing to the eye and the other senses. Coupled with non-intrusive, efficient service. Whether for business or leisure, I'd return here given the chance.

I intended to always stay in Aloft upon my visit but after this one, never again.
I woke up at 4.30 from the staff members and the maintenance team which started their work before Dawn and when I asked the reception to help, they kept stalling unti 6am - whereby then they called me and said: "sir, now the team is scheduled to start working so we cannot stop".

I totally mean what I said, i had stayed in around 7-8 hotels in UAE and had by far the best ever experience even than 5 star in my life, and its not just me but also my family, from the front desk till the good bye wish from the vallet supervisor, its a total memorable life time experience which I definitely want to cherish again.

My husband and I live in two different Emirates and come to the city very often because it is convenient for both of us. Since the first time we stayed at the Aloft, we have not stayed at another hotel. We love the Splash pool and the Mai Lounge and we have enjoyed the Rain Parties as well. The service and facilities are excellent throughout the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kath22 Service has been better!
During my recent stay, I have experienced rather poor service. Maybe it's because of low season or low motivation - staff does not live to their full potential, which is a pity, because it is such a great place in general... I am confident you will get back to your former level of efficiency and friendliness! I am still trusting to be back soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sary87 wasn't a pleasant stay
I booked a smoking pool view room. When I arrived they gave me a non-smoking room without informing me. Tv was not working.Then they called saying people are complaining from my smoking. I asked to be moved else where. They gave me a smoking room but not pool view and the fridge wasn't working. But I have to say receptionist was very helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SH00001 Disappointing
On arrival, the person at reception was unwelcoming .
The live and loud outdoor music continued until shortly before midnight which made it difficult for the children to sleep.
All in all, some of the staff were pleasant but others were not and it seems pretty clear that customer service training is required.

Overall I had a good experience staying in Aloft, The rooms and ambience were very good. And I enjoyed the stay there. The only drawback I received was during my check out. I had to check out early morning 4:00am, At night I requested them to arrange a Taxi in the morning. I was informed you won't face any problem and secondly I asked them for wake up alarm. and what happened next day was there was no wake up alarm. Luckily I woke up by myself and when I asked reception why they didn't wake me up. The answer I got was it was there in the system and they are sorry for not waking you up. and when I reached ground floor for taxi. there was no taxi for good 5 min, the door keeper informed they were not told for any taxi to be arranged for me so he informed me to better walk towards the signal on the other side you will get taxi. Since I had to catch my flight I did so and got Taxi. These were the only negative remark, else overall I had a very good stay.

A very modern and relaxing hotel with good facilities. Since the location is not in the city centre, it is very quiet and it is much nearer to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Yas Island. Though I have encountered a few minor glitches during my short stay, I will definitely stay here again in future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RobuDhabi Don't bother the staff. They have other things to do.
We booked the "Dine your Way" deal on the SPG website. When we got to the hotel, no one had ever heard of it and argued that we were wrong. As a result it took us over 40 minutes to check in. Feeling embarassed the entire time.
We had booked another room by phone (2 rooms total) and were supposed to get free breakfast. At check in, when I asked, I was told that we did not get free breakfast. Once I showed them the email, they conceeded. However, at breakfast the next day, we were charged anyway. Hostess argued with us in front of other diners. Embarrassment number 2.
Pool was closed for a private party Friday afternoon and Saturday until noon. Great for us and our kids who came for a relaxing weekend at the pool.
Rooftop, outdoor bar was also closed. Bill was wrong at the indoor top-floor bar and we had to pay anyway.
No one ever treated us like they were happy we were there or were sorry when they made a mistake. There are lots of great hotels in abu Dhabi. This is not one of them.

Hotel is OK but be warned that if you want to eat a meal other than at the hotel it is a long taxi ride downtown. Same if you need to buy water or anything else for the room. No shops at all in the area.
Aircon was too cold and could not be controlled.
Staff however were very good and very friendly

I have stayed in Aloft Abu Dhabi from July 19th to August 4th and to be honest my overall experience was average. Compare to other 4 star hotels in Abu Dhabi the services are on low standards and the hotel staff was not so trained. Besides the housekeeping and the vale parking is not working so well.

What a pleasure to stay somewhere that felt so vibrant and a welcome change to stay at an Hotel that made you feel young and not just an old burden like some of the top range Hotels have the ability to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CMOJoe Surprisingly welcoming
My first impression of the hotel was that it was cold and didn't have much atmosphere (I'd been used to the more traditional Hotels in the City Centre or on the Corniche), but a second look/visit changed my mind completely.
I may stay somewhere else when I visit but it won't be by choice...

Rated 4 out of 5 by LeFamily Pleasant Stay in August
My family of four has stayed at Aloft 3 times now and we always enjoy it, but my advice to those considering a stay is to simply keep your expectations realistic. It's a very reasonably priced hotel for AD, you won't find an SPG property as nice at this price. It's because it's still fairly new and totally out of the way of most anything you'd want to do in AD. That's why when we stay here, we just chill at the pool, hang out in the lobby, lounge and sometimes visit ADNEC if something's going on. All our needs are met by staff, but their is not great attention to detail here, for example you'll find games in the lobby to play that never seem to have all the parts, but if you are not too picky, and go with the flow, you'll have a nice time here. Usually a good spot for drinking crowd, but families are comfortable as well. Food pricey and limited, I suggest bringing in some of your own to supplement. Great pool and friendly staff . We do recommend Aloft AD as it has always served our family well.
