  • Seen from the outside, it may seem worth a little visit, but... the building has lost its luster, the whole feels a bit the enclosed, the carpets are decy and the whole thing is very dated. The hotel is self proclaimed 7 stars, it's rather ironic as it was a hundred times less beautiful and enjoyable than the 4 star where we stayed. Frankly, it has no interest and it is much prettier from outside or even seen from above, the Etihad towers and their Observatory (their Beach is beautiful, seen from above). Go your way!

  • We went to visit the place as a tourist and I must say Emirates palace is a magnificent piece of architecture in Abu Dhabi. The grandeur of the place is next level. Very expensive place to stay and di...  more »

  • Opulent, breathtaking! A must tourist attraction. The guide was super informative and had a wealth of knowledge of the Palace. The coffee at the end! 😮 You'll have to see/drink it to believe it! Don't miss this one guys!!! ❤️❤️❤️🦄
  • My experience at Emirates place was just amazing. I stayed in several 5 🌟 hotel but I was mesmerized with the modern amenities. The staff was very helpful. I was mesmerized with the view from my room The pool area was also fantastic though I have to pay handsomely during the stay but then also I will say it has worth every penny. Team Emirates has made my stay one of the most memorable stay of my life.
  • Pros: very fancy. Quite impressive. Beautiful beach and amazing dining on that beach with impressive view of the Presidential Palace. The Theater is also impressive and very adequately planed acoustically so the concert was a pleasure. Cons: I get a feeling of "Extra Everything". For me fancy but luxurious.
  • Magnificent is an understatement. This is royalty at its best. Though this has been converted to a hotel now and the regular tourists do not have access to all parts but whatever I have witnessed left me speechless. The class, elegance, richness and grandeur of the palace worked like a magical spell upon me. Kudos to the vision of the creator and workmanship of the people who worked in building this wonderful thing.
  • What a marvelous experience I had here. My friends and family were all very delighted with the service and the aesthetics were exceedingly superior to most hotels I must say. The service was available more that promptly and the staff was always courteous and so well informed. I dare say the bar has been raised from here on. Bravo!
