Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My friends and I had a wonderful time out at Grills@Chillo, restaurant/bar at the Sofitel. It is right by the swimming pool and very quite, which was perfect for us. We sat on the sofas right next to the pool and it almost felt like we were having an exclusive experience. The staff were very also friendly, especially Avinash and the service better than we expected. I assume this place will be good for a business meeting as well.

I spent three nights here, rooms are good in size and nice toward sea view. The tower is so narrow, ten rooms in each floor. Service mid and normal reception is so bad, restaurant is good. The location is bad, no beaches only the cornich which need 5 min walking. Nothing near hotel.

We initially booked the Sofitel as the reviews on Trip Advisor were great, and so was the location. WOW, what a gorgeous 1 bedroom unit we had with fantastic views! We arrived early morning at the hotel as had just disembarked a cruise. Julia took us aside and not only said our room was ready, but we'd been upgraded. I had booked a Prestige Suite and they put us in the Imperial Suite (2901) The suite was approximately 1300 sq ft with a great floor plan. We've never been made to feel so welcome and special in a hotel. We were pleasantly surprised when both Marifhel, the Club Millseime mgr, and Rachedi, Sales Executive, came and introduced themselves to us. They gave us late check out at 4:00 PM, and we were able to use the showers in the spa area later in the evening. Worked out well as we had a 2:00 AM flight. I emailed the hotel prior to our arrival on transportation to various areas and they replied promptly. They mentioned the shuttle service they provide to several locations, with the schedule. We were glad we were able to take advantage of that service the offer when we took a tour of the F1 Track. I would also suggest when booking a room you go for access to Club Millseime. It is well worth the money spent for what they offer guests.

Thanks for the great experience, was amazing the food and service. Thanks Jessica and all the team in service. Amazing hotel. The view is amazing, and the food it's delicious. If u are in Abu Dhabi, this is the best hotel.

On a 2 day stop over in our way to Italy the Sofitel Corniche was the ideal place to stay. Arriving early our room was ready and checking on was very quick. Again the staff at the Sofitel are excellent. A special mention to Ria(hope this is right)her professional and caring approach really made our stay one to remember. Rooms are great and after flying from Australia being able to check in early and get sime sleep was very much appreciated. The location is fantastic. After a rest we easily accessed the Corniche for a early morning walk. Checking out at 4.30am was again very professional and ordering an early take away breakfast was excellent, not to mention tasty and coffees to go. All the staff at the Sofitel Corniche are a true credit to this iconic hotel.

The Sofitel is a perfect location on the corniche in Abu Dhabi and is in line with its 5star standard and reputation. Much to be recommended. The rooms are elegant and spacious. The amenities and restaurant including the club room very nice!

Having stayed at multiple Sofitel hotels I usually get an upgrade without a problem This time I was traveling with a colleague and although we both had gold cards I couldn't get an upgrade and was told that I was upgraded which I knew wasn't as I had stayed there before and my colleague had a different better room so clearly this wasn't true so at the end I got my upgrade Food was fine but I was disappointed that the waiter couldn't suggest a wine for my meal. Service and wallet parking was fine

Ok, maybe I got a great price on my room, but even if didn't, I would still give this hotel a great review. The rooms are very attractive and efficient. The service is top notch, and the location is excellent.

Am currently enjoying a 2 day stay at this hotel. Room and facilities excellent. Staff have been welcoming and and go out of their way to help with any potential issues. Many thanks for kind support from Marifhel, club manager who went out of her way to support us with an issue we were having that had no connection to the Sofitel. We will certainly pass on our referral to family and friends who come to Abu Dhabi. We also a lovely meal at Sushi Corner and would recommend this restaurant.

Excellent staff from those who welcome you to those who clean your room. Especially the great staff on the 35th floor who are so kind and helpful. The food is generally very good. There is a handy courtesy bus to the beach and local shopping malls.
