“Excellent value for business or leisure”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Perfect for both the business traveller or families on holiday with direct beach access and child friendly pool. Connected to the Shangri-la (part of that chain) means additional choice of restaurants and eateries. Between the two hotels is The Souk which offers night clubs and cafe style eating and particularly at a fantastic restaurant called The Meat Co Steakhouse - ate their twice in three days due to the incredible steaks! Now, back to the Traders - 5 star service at 3 star prices is how I would evaluate this property. Room was very large, complimentary wi-fi in room, great views to the stunning new Mosque, and of course the beach. Inhouse restaurant was 4 star quality, and there are many alternatives close by. I had a small problem at check in when my reservation (via an online agency) could not be found, however the wonderful front office staff were very efficient in resolving the issue very quickly (after travelling for some 20 hours, this was very appreciated!). Can definitely recommend this property as excellent value.

This is a fantastic 4 star hotel which is doing a great job of passing itself off as a luxury 5 star establishment! From the trendy lobby to the elegant bedrooms everything is a delight.

If you are looking for a relaxing break on the beach front and appreaciate a luxurious hotel room then this is the place to stay!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Club room. The selection of complimentary drinks and nibbles more than make up f...

My husband and young boys spend three nights here on the way back from Europe. The staff were outstanding. We had two rooms booked and despite how full the hotel was, the staff ensured we had interconnecting rooms. The staff at the main restaurant and by the pool were just as helpful, professional and friendly too.

My only criticism was the size and location of the pool. It would have been nicer to have the pool on the ground floor with some garden (and more shade).

The wonderful staff made up for the pool!

Our visit mainly comprised of visiting both the restaurant and the cafe by the beach. Nevertheless, we had aome kind of a problem, quite a big one that the hotel is not involved with, however, Mossab Menem vouched to help and He actually did place his career and own safety on the path. He is most certainly the most courageous professional Duty Manager I have seen, Traders hotel have a low hanging fruit and hope they actually realize that they have such an honest dedicated employee within the payrol
Nevertheless, the service at the cafe was terrible and the 3 stars for the hotel go only due to the act that Mossab Menem has taken.

Ive stayed for 5 nights during a business trip. The hotel is almost perfect. Rooms are big and you are lucky to get a sea view room your stay is even better. The decoration of the hotel is very nice. Beds are huge, comfortable and with a wide choice if pillows. There is a desk for working and the wifi works perfectly. The toilet is huge and in the shower the pressure of the water is very strong, perfect for a relaxing shower. The breakfast is just amazing, with a wide choice of products and kind of meals, arabic, asian and western. The natural juices are very tasteful. The staff was very helpful all the time. Probably, its not a 5 star because of the tiny swimming pool and the gym. They should consider to build a decent swimming pool next to the sea!

I stayed here June 2012, as a transit of a journey to Paris.
Wanted to book Shangrila, but it's only avail for 1 from 3 nites planned, so I took this hotel which's just next door and under same management.
Knowing the price, and the fact that together with my husband and our 2 y.o son, we would arrive past midnight, I didn't expect much.
We were truly pleasantly surprised, they took care of us, very well.

Check-in process was very effective. All the staff welcoming us with warm smile and respect, thus, professional attitude. Special mention to a staff namely Hendra, that organize to set up the room quickly and even bring a camel soft toy, as welcome gift for my son. And all of that happened at 2am..! Really, 5 star service.

This service also reflects in our room (premier room type, if I'm not mistaken). This is a spacious room with a view, -a terrace faced to private beach-, and full of amenities.
Guest name appeared on tv screen, with useful informations regarding the visit in Abu Dhabi, It was such a private welcome.

The breakfast was various and tasty. Fresh juices, cooked hot dishes, even few asian & africans meals on the top of regular menu. There's plenty of staffs, not intrusive, present discreetly, but when needed, they acted quickly. A 5 star service.

If I have to mention the weakness of this hotel, -especially for the 1st time visitor to Abu Dhabi like us-, is the location and the property facilities.
Location wise, it is not central. We can't explore on our own, and have to depends on the shuttle, or taxi. It is not very comfortable, especially if we have to wait for transportation at 44 degree Celcius sunny day, for 20 minutes going back-forward to the hotel.

That's why the next days we decided to take tours, and staffs at Traders were helpful and reliable to arrange them; Sahara, Ferrari, Yas Island, city tour, (visiting Grand Mosque, etc). Later, it was proven a more suitable choice to experience the city, eventhough we couldn't really in touch with the real life in Abu Dhabi.

Regarding property facilities, the hotel has a private beach which is clean, quiet and secluded (as in a 5 star property), but there's only one pool and it is very small, gym equipment is limited, and hotel interior is not luxurious.
I think that's why the hotel got 4, -and not 5 star, as the service they offered-. But if I put those aspects aside, I feel the experience and the same service that I got in other Shangrilas.

Traders Abu Dhabi is a truly benefit for its customers.

Room Tip: Ask room with private terrace and beach view.

We live in Abu dhabi and have just enjoyed our second visit back to traders hotel. Family of four staying in a premium club lounge with access to the club lounge and breakfast. We enjoyed early check in at the lounge and then took lunch in the casual dining restaurant. There have been many improvements to the hotel and the surrounding area since our last visit. Service and staff are excellent. Food is of a good value and good quality. Pool salt water has been replaced with traditional fresh water. Beach area is looking great. Breakfast offered a great choice in either the club lounge or in the restaurant. We enjoyed a boat ride down to Shang ri la and to the the souq. Rooms are an excellent size and well equipped. Well done traders. We will be back and we will recommend.

Room Tip: Book a club room with club lounge access. Well worth the extra few pennies
