Mercure Abu Dhabi Centre Hotel
Ranked #63 of 129 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2011

The good points are free wi-fi, good in-house restaurants, pool and fitness center and impecable staff. Negative points? I can think of none. Word of warning, when you arrive at the airport be sure to tell your taxi driver that the Mercure is the former Novotel. He may get confused if you don't.

Room Tip: I was on the 15th floor and had no problem there. I suppose all the other rooms are about as good.

Every taxi driver knows the Mercure Center at Hamden Street. Since there is no Metro in Abu Dhabi and the bus waiting time seemed to be close to infinity, taxi was the only transportation that I used there and they were plentiful. Walked out in front of the hotel, a metered taxi was always there. The room was very comfortable. Free and fast wired internet (cable was provided) and a working desk environment made it an ideal place for me to do some work.

Buffet breakfast was good and the staff there was nice. It was a bit expensive compared to the price I paid (80 Dhrs) but I had no other choices since I had breakfast very early in the morning and the nearby restaurants were still closed. I did not try other restaurants in the hotel. Instead, I took taxis to nearby shopping centers and ate there.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Mercure Centre hotel for a quick 16hour stopover before our flight home and we found the hotel to be great for our needs.
We arrived at the hotel at 7am and were checked in without hesitation which we thought was fantastic as all we wanted to do was sleep for a couple of hours, the staff at check in were just wonderful and could not have been more helpful.One even noticed how tired and bedraggled we looked and wished us good night.
When we entered the room we found it to be clean and very comfortable, we had twin beds that were quite huge with lovely quality linen.
The bathroom was very nicely appointed with a fantastic shower over the bath and soft fluffy towels and lovely quality amenities.
On the television was a huge selection of channels and it was great to watch a little bit of Aussie ABC news.
The internet in the room worked flawlessly.
I called reception a couple of times with trivial requests like a travel adaptor and bottle opener and they were courteous, accommodating with very quick.
After a very restful few hours sleep we ventured out into the blistering heat of Abu Dhabi for a bite to eat, my daughter felt like eating junk so lucky (for her) Burger King was just down the street, just turn right as you exit the hotel, walk about 100mts or so and there you are, too easy. We also noticed there was a Starbucks across the road if that's more your thing.
We ventured back to the hotel and used the pool, which was very refreshing and relaxing with complimentary towels and plenty of lounges to lay on, we did not use the gym.
We checked out at 9pm and reception arranged a taxi to the airport for us.
Our short stay at Mercure Centre Hotel was overall a great experience, nice comfortable rooms, clean facilities and exceptional staff. I hope to return to Abu Dhabi for more than just a stopover and see more of this amazing city and I will definitely return to the Mercure Centre Hotel.

The staff are prompt, friendly and accommodating. Centrally located with spacious and extremely comfortable rooms. Plenty of Taxis outside and stores & eating joints. They were nice to give me a late check out. Will go there again.

Even for the first sight this hotel might not seem the best choice (the reception area and the hall is very old designed), finally we were very happy to stay there. Helpful staff, huge room, small little surprises in the room and affordable price. Very good value for money.

The stay was fine, good value for money, rooms are similar as any mercure or ibis hotel, but very clean and neat. AC was too powerful and room got chilled very fast, that's why low on sleep quality. Restaurants are good and offer multiple cuisine options in house

Booked our 3 night stay here recently online, and it exceeded our expectations. Nice, clean room, enough space to spread out a bit, lovely bathroom. Nice pool and gym area. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, helped us with bus timetable and general tourist enquiries. Great location, plenty of shops - Hamdan Centre, Central Market just a short distance away, as well as plenty of small souvenir and jewellery shops. Lots of food choices as well, Burger King, KFC, Starbucks, Baskin Robbins about a block away. Walking distance (about 10 mins) to the Corniche. Catch a bus (make sure you get a timetable so you know which bus number) to the Mina markets, Marina, Mosque etc. Hotel also has a free shuttle service to Abu Dhabi Mall and Marina Mall which was excellent. We had no trouble getting a taxi to and from the airport, but might be an idea to mention this hotel used to be the Novotel, some drivers seem to remember that name instead. Would definitely recommend staying here.
