Very nice Hotel

Pros: Hotel room and staff
Cons: I thought everything was nice
Location: I didn't see where you could walk to anything, however other places by cab would get you there within 20 minutes or less.
My husband and I enjoyed staying at Southern Sun Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The room was more than I expected with the price we paid. Staff was very nice and accommodating, from the time we check-in until we check-out.
