  • The most intricately crafted hotel ever! Right from the architecture to the quality of rooms, service and food. If you are looking to stay at a five star hotel or just want to feel like a Prince or a Princess, if only for a couple of days, look no further than this place. The prices are reasonable for the experience. It has a seaside dining area. Even common restrooms are beautifully built and are clean. You can visit the hotel for free as a tourist, if you behave and present yourself well.
  • "I love gold" should be emblazoned on the walls here, preferably in gold. It's an amazing venue designed to impress your impressions and does a very good job. Famed for an ATM that dispenses gold ingots (sadly being maintained when I visited), everything here invoked wealth. Lighting is gold coloured. Camel burger is dusted with edible 23k gold. Christmas tree is bathed in decorations. Staff are top notch, friendly and knowledgeable. Don't try to get in wearing shorts (you won't make it past the gate). An impressive and worthwhile spot to visit in Abu Dhabi (just stop for a lovely camelcino). Not stayed the night here sadly though I imagine the beds are probably gold coloured???
  • Nice stop in Abu Dhabi. The garden and fountains are quite well kept and make for nice photos. The inside is beautiful and very gold. Enjoy afternoon tea in the cafe in the back while listening to some piano. Their cakes are ok, tea sandwiches are nice, but the highlight is the golden cappuccino. Be ready to dish out a lot of cash for it! We tried searching for the gold ATM but it has since been removed, so just enjoy a walk around and head out. Just a quick stop. There is ample parking and it's free for visitors.
  • A lavishly imagined dream, Emirates Palace offers you a magical location to enjoy the quintessence of award-winning 5-star luxury hospitality and authentic local experiences. From 394 luxurious rooms and suites, to our award-winning culinary cuisine, Emirates Palace is the definition of an unrivaled and Arabian fantasy. Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, the Capital of the United Arab Emirates and only 40 minutes from the airport, Emirates Palace is grand in both its design and myriad of offerings. From a 1.3 km pristine beach, landscaped pools and a private marina overlooking a natural bay, Emirates Palace is perfect for a once-in-a lifetime holiday or for events and meetings that make a statement, with some of the city’s largest hotel conference centres and the latest technology. An ethereal experience, Emirates Palace is truly one of the most inspiring hotels in Abu Dhabi and we look forward to welcoming you.
  • Beautiful hotel with gold as the theme. The outside of the hotel has a very nice fountain rubbing down the stairs. The gold atm no longer exists but you are still able to order golden themed food and drinks. Ordered the golden cappuccino, it looked nice, tasted average and had a very high $20 price tag, for essentially a normal cappuccino with gold flakes on it. The beach is private and looks quite nice. Did not stay the night so can't comment on the rooms.

Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.
