Spent a long weekend staying at the Southern Sun Hotel for the F1, staff are particularly helpful and approachable. Breakfast is very good, we enjoyed the late rooftop bar relaxing in the cabana's. All in all a very positive stay. Thank you Southern Sun for your hospitality and taking such good care of us all.

Nice clean room - comfy bed - good shower ! One question tho - why do most hotel bathrooms in UAE have glass walls ? I’m sure even married couples like to have some privacy when in the bathroom !

Nice hotel with outdoor pool

Pros: Pool Breakfast Nice room
Location: We found Abu Dhabi difficult to get around without going everywhere by taxi. Not a city to wander around. Not the hotels fault
Enjoyed a two night stay before heading off on a cruise. Room was lovely. Great breakfast. Enjoyed relaxing at outdoor pool. Staff friendly and helpful

Very pleasant stay

I had an enjoyable stay at the Southern Sun. Check in was quick and efficient. You are offered a complimentary drink on arrival. The reception area is very modern and bright. My room was clean and spacious. It was on the 14th floor and I had limited view of the main road. The only thing that I am not sure about was the patterned glass that separated the bathroom area in regards to privacy if 2 friends shared the room. My room was kept clean daily and replenished with clean towels and toiletries by the 2 men housekeepers. There is a wide variety of choices for breakfast, however I found it expensive (£23 incl tax). The hotel is on a busy duel carriageway and the only entrance and exit is by taxi and they are very cheap to use. At the back of the hotel pass the Sheraton Hotel, there is part of the Corniche which is very nice to walk along. If I came back to Abu Dhabi, I would definitely stay here again and do B&B.

usual excellence

Great facilities including an excellent rooftop pool, and excellent value, together with friendly staff who remembered me from the last time, made this a very pleasant 3rd visit. I will definitely return and I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. There are restaurants and bars for most tastes and the room was very comfortable. Only problem is that there is a lot of construction going on in the immediate area and some associated noise. Otherwise, first rate.

Comfortable

Good size rooms and very comfortable. Great service. Pool area small as you would expect from a city hotel, but can't fault the rooms and service. Recommended value for money.
