The Novotel and Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate hotels have opened their doors to guests in Abu Dhabi.

Accor Middle East, one of the regions’ leading hospitality groups has reinforced its presence in the capital with the opening of its first clustered property, the 294-room Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate and the 224-room Novotel Abu Dhabi Gate.

The opening of these two new properties is the result of a successful long-lasting partnership through the Mena region between Dr Shaikh Ahmed bin Saif Al Nahyan and the Accor Group.

Both hotels are well-positioned to cater to both leisure and business travellers attending exhibitions and events in the nearby Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Currently, in the capital, Accor offers guests a comprehensive hotel solution from luxury with Sofitel to Mercure, Novotel for midscale and ibis for economy to choose from.

Opening its first economy lodging hotel with international standards in the capital is an important milestone for the ibis brand. Being the leading economy hotel brand, ibis has earned a worldwide reputation for excellent services at very competitive prices.

The new 294 rooms Ibis Abu Dhabi Gate will bring in a fresh sensation to the economy hotel segment in the country’s capital.

Christophe Landais, Managing Director Accor Middle East, is confident of the capital’s attraction as a top destination.

“Abu Dhabi is part of our aggressive development programme. With the emirate’s annual tourist visitors expected to rise to 7.5 million in the coming years, we are well poised to help drive and benefit from significant tourism growth,” said Landais.
