“Be prepared for a very pleasant stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

Le Meridien hotel breathes the atmosphere of the Gulf. It has a pleasant garden and it's own beach which makes you forget that this hotel is very centrally located in the city.
The staff are very helpful, friendly and keen to give great service.
And the food...even if you are not staying at the hotel, the restaurants are well worth a visit. The thai food is very good and it has a nice waterfront view. The Italian restaurant is superb too, not just pizza here. Plenty of delicious pasta's and risotto's on the menu. Haven't tried the spa, may be next time. The gym is good, and do try the yoga class at the studio.

What a fantastic bunch of people, so accommodating and polite. Washed, dryer and ironed clothes overnight for the five of us. My son was sick and they were great (after he threw up on there lovely polished floors) very clean bathrooms! Great breakfast buffet the most enjoyable I've ever been too! Always willing to help out with bags, taxis anything you need definitely will stay there again!

This hotel is well located just next to one of the biggest shopping mall, also next door is the biggest night life spot in the city called Touristic Club. It has more than 10 noght clubs and bars satisfying all tastes, nationalities and music styles. The hotel is one of the classic hotels and old establishments in Abu Dhabi, yet it still has it's taste and cleanliness and well maintained facilities. The best part is the variety of outdoor restaurants and bars, really excellent italian, lebanese, french and thai restaurants with one perfect bar and a crazy disco. In brief, this is the perfect place to stay while on business or short vacation.

I didn't really know what to expect from this little jewel of a hotel. But I was pleasantly surprised.

The good: Next to and walking distance to many cute little restaurants and bars. Walking distance to a large shopping mall. Free parking. Free interent in lobby. Has own small little private beach. The pools are nice. The gym is nice. The SPA is free and awesome. A must see. I could have spent hours in there. Older hotel, but has personality, especially with the middle eastern Aladdin type theme.

The bad: The rooms are a bit older. Not super clean. I found a stain on the sheets. The one time I ordered food (at the pool), it was not good and I had to send back. Older hotel/Not a super fancy new hotel.

I recommend the drive to Abu Dhabi while in Dubai. And if you get out there, this may be your hotel. Very good value (I used points and not much), and very good place to relax and start your day.

nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff at the hotel,the food was top quality,with a good variety and number of dishes at every sitting,if you didn't want to eat in the main restaurant there are several bars/restaurants linked to the hotel..something for everyone.The hotel has its own private man-made beach and adjoining pool,there is also spa facilities,unfortunately i had no time to use these as i was on a business trip.
as
The hotels location is ideal for easy access to the shopping malls and various shops/restaurants nearby.
All the usual services are provided..laundry/high speed internet/cable etc.. also my room was like a presidential suite...overall a very nice stay..

Checked in 1 nite on 22 Sept. Cost 327.25 UAE DIRHAM. Room only.

I dint get the chance to really tour the hotel coz of time constrain. But……..

Hotel: The building is not really prominent & I felt a slight letdown the moment I saw the hotel building from a distance. Bcoz I was expecting something “Royal” but nevertheless I still think the lobby is quite grand & the garden juz out the side entrance is really nice.

Room: The standard double room is HUGE! Plenty of room/space to run around & throw clothes all over… I like!! :D However…. I was given a room on the 2nd floor. I'm ok that I'm given a room with no-view but it is kinda scary to see cleaners cleaning the room window the moment u open the curtain! Also, the room did looked really "tired" which showed in the quality of the room furnitures & in the bathroom. And oh, lack of toiletries!

Staffs: The Sikh doorman was very frenly. And the African lady who checked me in was very sweet. But it seems that most of the other hotel staffs working on the lobby floor kinda gave me the cold shoulder. They were juz only too eager to please, to help, to smile at Middle Eastern & Caucasians guests. This is totally a minus point! Im a paying customer, dun I get to be treated like one regardless of my race (Im Singaporean btw) or the fact that I dun walk around wearing fancy dress & high heels??

Convenience: Abu Dhabi Mall is juz “next door” barely a minute walk-away! And of course there’s other smaller shopping places & tons of eateries all within walking distance. So u dun have to worry about last minute shopping, being hungry or getting some last minute emergency supplies!

Hotel guests: Mostly Caucasian.

Location is very good, facilities are good, a bit old but fine. Generally everything is good if you don't expect extremely services. Staff is polite,sweet, helpful unfortunately some of them are dull. I just had to extend extreme patience when they didn't know how to solve problem, at reception counter. They performed their duty well / professionally, but do not expect 'WOW' from them.

I booked 'King-size bed' as I traveled with my partner, still they gave us two single beds which they tried to attach as double bed. It was real mean.

I may recommend this hotel to easy-going people, do it yourself, quick-witted problem solving, and thoes who focus on their business in surrounding hotel location, but not for the people who expect the service from the hotel at the end.

Room Tip: Room with balcony is romantic, but smaller than one without balcony. Make sure that they give real...
