This is the best place to stay in Abu Dhadi hands down. The customer service is excellent! Rolando and his partner did an excellent job cleaning my room and making it smell great! The hotel security guard Ham was excellent at helping me acquire the Alhosn App for the Covid verification that is needed before entering the hotel. Everyone at the Southern Sun was very helpful and kind. I highly recommend staying here and will stay here again in the future for sure! I love the lobby entrance and the wonderful smell in the air along with the helpful customer service and amazingly beautiful room i had. The daily breakfast meals at The Foundry that were included also made me very happy. Thanks for everything I will return!
