Al Husn Palace

Al Hosn, Sheikh Zayed the First Street - Abu Dhabi Phone: +971 2 444 0444


The Qasr al-Hosn is the oldest stone building in the city of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.It's life began in the 18th century as a coral and sea stone watchtower built by the Bani Yas tribes in Abu Dhabi.One of the most ingenious aspects of the structure is its traditional 'Barjeel' ventilation system - effectively an early form of air conditioning. Recessed arches built into the exterior walls would direct the prevailing sea breezes into the interior rooms via a network of narrow airways.
