The place is well located with Abu Dhabi Mall just down the road. The hotel is old but serviceable and clean with a great pool area. A shame we couldn't use it ourselves as it was way too hot at 43C !! . Rooms have internet but this was no good to me and wifi would have made all the difference. The breakfast buffet offered an enormous choice catering for all tastes and cuisines. My only gripe is the whole idea of allowing smoking in the lobby, restaurant, bars etc. Not a pleasant experience for non-smokers, particularly when you are eating and having separate areas for non smokers doesn't really help. Staff all around were fantastic so congratulations, they made this trip for us.

We make a valiant effort to segregate the smoking from non smoking areas as indicated by signage. However we understand your concern with this regard.
We sincerely look forward to welcome you back to Le Meridien Abu Dhabi in the not too distant future.

Had a family break over Eid, The hotel is very well run with great amenities with great bars and restaurants. fantastic location in the heart of AUH and the service was very professional. The only down side was the rooms look a bit tired but are still comfortable.

Had the chance for an Eid getaway with my family and spending those days at the Le Meridien In Abu Dhabi had truly been a memorable one.
The service was great, the foodies were superb not to mention the hospitality and friendliness of all the staff.
Thank you for making our stay worth every single dirhams!

The hotel is stuck in the 1980's in its decor and some of the fittings and fixtures, many of which need attention. It was probably wonderful when it was built, but, unfortunately, time has moved on and left Le Meridien behind.

Our trip was an attempt to have a romantic weekend away in Abu Dhabi as a break from Dubai. We booked a club room with a sea view, it was nothing special and the main view was of the roof of the building housing the spa and restaurant (I think) which obscured the view across the gardens/pool and was an eyesore. The cordless phone didn't work. The bed was hard, making sleep difficult to come by.

There is almost no information available in the room about the hotel and its facilities, except for a room service menu. I called to ask for a directory, but none exist. This is a pity, because the hotel has a number of restaurants and a large spa, but the only way to find out about them is to walk around the grounds and check them out. In 50 degrees heat.

Staff are very friendly and helpful, which is really the only outstanding feature of this hotel.

The club lounge is pleasant, but, again, nothing special, apart from the waiter who is amazing.

Internet access is wired in the room (I couldn't use it, because I left my mac book air adapter at home) and wifi in the club lounge and lobby. It was too slow to do anything useful and a number of people were frustrated by this, including us! Definitely don't stay here if you need internet access!

The spa is very nice, with a fabulous jacuzzi. There are two good-sized outdoor swimming pools and a small pool for toddlers.

The food was mainly very good in the Brasserie (buffet breakfast) but watch out if you don't smoke, some of the smoking tables are right next to non-smoking. We had a nice meal in the Bistrot (sic) too, where service was excellent.

The staff really made a difference to our trip, without their friendliness, this would have been mediocre at best. As for romance, well, you have to make your own!

Room Tip: I'm not sure there are any good rooms to recommend.

Dear LondonJem,

Sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences with regards to your stay at Le Méridien Abu Dhabi. Indeed Le Méridien was established over 3 decades ago; however it still has its own charm and comfort enjoyed by many guests. We are sorry to hear about the inconveniences you faced during your stay and deeply regret that the view from your hotel window was unpleasant.
Nevertheless we are glad to hear that the spa facilities and food were to your liking. It was indeed a pleasure to read your comments about the friendliness of our associates. We hope to see you again soon and if you do decide to come back, please contact me directly in order to ensure a better view for you that our hotel can offer. Thank you again.

Sincerely,
Nemo ACIMOVIC

Dear Marco U,

Thank you for posting a review on Tripadvisor. Le Méridien Abu Dhabi is one of the first hotels built in Abu Dhabi and we believe it adds to its charm. I would like to inform you that we are currently working on a WiFi solution for all of our rooms and until then internet access is available in the Royal club and is completely free in the business centre at the lobby which offers access to Wi-Fi or internet cable 24/7. Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We hope to see you again soon.

Great Hotel.
Hard working & Polite Staff.

Gym needs a little modifying with spa but still does the job none the less.

Foos is good.
Internet not the best but does the job eventually.

All in all great place to stay while on business.
