A perfect place in order to escape from grey European November days. The location between the two bridges is perfect. You can reach any place of Abu Dhabi within 30 min by car or taxi and explore the rest of the UAE. Friendly staff. Excellent service. Good quality of food. Overall a memoriable stay.
