“Great choice in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

The renovated rooms of the Royal Meridien are superb, when looking for a hotel in downtown Abu Dhabi look no further. They have a great choice of restaurants and for the morning exercise head for the corniche.

One of the most luxurious hotels I have ever stayed in! We arrived late evening but still the staff were extremely accommodating despite us visiting during the Grand Prix which is probably one of their busiest periods. There is something for everyone at this hotel from the selection of restaurants, breakfast dishes and even the in room mesh herbal tea bags!
I loved the attention to detail and everything was immaculate. Was so sad to leave :( Best Wishes.

I hhave stayed at this hotel atleast five times and each time i leave fully satisfied. starting from the friendly and professional receptionists, clean and cosy rooms, excellent breakfast, variety of bars, restaurants, and most important, a perfect location at the heart of the town and shopping area.

Sports bar on the pool where you can enjoy watching matches and inside is one of the best music bands playing live. Another 4 clubs in the hotel makes your night busy till early morning with different music styles, and a fabulous floor having italian and morroccan restaurants. This is my favourite in Abu Dhabi. They are redfurbishing the lobby and hopefully they will finish by fall.

Great staff here. Welcome was good and chef at breakfast ism really good. The only thing was because the hotel is being refitted the small bar is only place to chill out, but the guy with the violin only seems to know about 5 tunes and is a bit annoying and screeching noise!
Hotel is handy for corniche and shoos and taxis are reasonable,I went to the yas island on Sunday and enjoyed Ferrari world. Cab fare each way about 70 aed
The rooms are comfortable,I had a deluxe room and everything in there, even a turn down service at night. As I have said the hotel is being refitted and only guy told me it could take up to about 8 months. But in this time you can enjoy rooms at a cheap rate and have 5 star comfort for 3 star prices. The concierge were so helpful. I wanted to get to the harley dealership in mussufah and they went out the way to get a taxi who knew where to go.and in the bar and restuarant you are served by pretty ladies.

Room Tip: As there is building work on try and pick one on the 5 th floor, but the staff will treat you ok and...

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights on a business trip. It was going through renovation but I haven't heard any noise in the room. The room bed was comfortable and the room and toilet were very clean. The location of the hotel is in central Abu Dhabi and very close to Abu Dhabi corniche. The breakfast was good with a big selection of food. They change few types of food on daily basis. The breakfast restaurant is adjacent to the pool which provides a relaxing atmosphere. The hotel has a small lobby and there is a lady playing piano. The hotel staffs are very helpful and friendly.

The only negative thing is that although my stay was prepaid, the reception staff, while checking in, held around AED 4,000 (approx. USD 1,000) on my credit card for any mini-bar consumption which is higher than the whole stay cost. This was the highest among any hotel I stayed in before.

Room Tip: Please take the sea-view rooms. They have better sunlight and better view. If you like breakfast the...

Rediscover Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, as the city's long-standing landmark re-emerges, transformed.

Strategically located in the heart of the city's commercial district, the hotel is within a 20 minute drive to all areas of Abu Dhabi and just a walk away from major corporations, shopping, parks and the Corniche. Curious minds are awakened by the Arrival Artwork as guests enter and discover the Hub, Le Meridien's re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby, where they are immediately transported into a stimulating space. Recently renovated, the hotel's redesign is inspired by both its European roots and its local heritage. Curated art in the hotel inspires a new perspective and discovery continues at check-in with Unlock Art, where guests receive a limited-edition room key designed exclusively by an LM100 artist, which also allows guests to receive exclusive benefits at a local cultural institution. The 202 spacious guest rooms and 74 lavish suites reveal the city's skyline and coast with panoramic views and feature contemporary, chic design and Le Meridien signature beds. The hotel's transformation also made it the culinary destination in the city, providing a fresh palate of tastes, including the first Jean-Georges Restaurant- Market Kitchen, the city's only revolving lounge bar and grill - Stratos- with 360 degree views of Abu Dhabi, coffee culture brought to life with Illy and the only authentic Irish pub - PJ O Reilly's- in the city. The hotel boasts 10 restaurants and bars offering best in class culinary exploration. With 8 meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 1,300 attendees, Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi's conference facilities provide ample room to encourage creative interaction and forward thinking. ... more   less
