Reviewed 26 June 2012

Hi. I stayed here in early June 2012 for a few nights. Was greeted in a friendly and helpful manner. Fruit bowl in my room as a welcome- nice touch. Choc on the pillow and turn down service with morning paper as complimentry. Room size very large, was quite pleased with this and very clean and in excellent condition. Bed comfy, and quiet environment on my floor for sleeping peacefully. Only glitch in the room was that my handbasin did not drain properly, staying full for ages before slowly draining away. Despite reporting this on night 1, by checkout on day 3, it was still an issue, making the basin unusable. This part was poor.

Amenities in the hotel- several different venues to dine from, I only ate once at the hotel in the ground floor restaurant. Food nice enough but nothing to really to rave over. There is a bar on the Mezzanine level plus another restaurant. Given Abu Dhabi is effectively a dry (no alcohol) city, you are extremely limited where you can get a drink if you should so desire. You can at this bar, although it is pricier here that what you are used to back home- wherever you may be from. They do have one night as " Ladies night" with free champers if you want to check this out. I did not go to this. (Yes, I am female so could have gone!)
Pool- on the small side but good enough for a quick dip alone if you are early or late in the day.
Location- probably not the most convenient -about 20 mins walk to shopping areas.

If I was back in AD I would probably consider to stay here again.
Hope this is helpful for you.

Room Tip: Ask for one that overlooks the beach- i found this to be a quiet side for sleep. Not sure about the...

My husband and I have been staying at the Millennium hotel in Abu Dhabi for the past 8 years.... from the minute you step foot into the lobby you are treated as royalty. Well, it is the country of royals after all!
The service is seamless and the attention to details focusing on the guests whether you are a first timer or a return guest is parallel to none.
From the doorman to the valet, to the waiters to the various hotel staff members you are welcomed with a smile and an eagerness to make your stay there as comfortable as possible- The ambiance with such attention and comfort feels like home away from home-
A special thank you to Nevine Ezzat; the director of Public Relations and Krishna; the head waiter at Citrus Cafe- We miss the papaya plate!
Thank you to all!!!!

This hotel is gorgeous and rooms are fantastic. The staff were lovely and very professional. Two things let the Millennium down. The food at Citrus (breakfast and dinner buffet) was very very ordinary. The other issue we had is that we feel there needs to be a balance between local religion and the needs of tourists. Very disappointing to find that on a weekend stay, no entertainment was allowed and no alcohol served because of a religious event. Yes, I understand that this is a Muslim country but one that is also trying to make itself a tourist destination.

Dear GlamisNewEngland,
Thank you for your nice comment about our hotel features and facilities. We also appreciate your feedback about the offers and services at our Citrus Café which I have personally addressed with our Executive Chef as this is not our usual standard.
We truly understand your expectations towards a tourist destination and in Abu Dhabi and the U.A.E we are proud of our Hospitality, generosity and respect for culture and traditions. In keeping with this there may on limited occasions be certain events that do not allow for the full spectrum of hospitality offerings to be available. Again, thank you for your comment and we hope to have the chance to be of service again to you soon and rest assure that no efforts would be spared to make your next visit to the hotel memorable. Till then we remain

Stayed in this hotel for 5 days from Dec 31th till 4th Jan 2012 and all I can say is: this hotel is really beautifull. Rooms are qute big, mine was cca 40sqm, fully furnished, housekeeping 3 times a day... Food was excellent, they organized special dinner/party for nye and it was quite entertaining. Location is good, city center, there is a shuttle bus once a day to the beach and Marina mall, if shuttle bus is not operating, they will hire a taxi for you and refund money whey you chech out. Pool is quite small, room isolation is good, we stayed on 1st floor right above restaurant and pool and we didn´t hear a thing. HIGLY RECOMMEND this hotel!

Room Tip: for couple of extra dirhams you can book an apartment on top floors with beautiful sea view

Is it really 5 star hotel???
- check in and check out : handle only by 1 person. I have to wait 5-10 minutes
- food : the fruits was not fresh during breakfast, lunch and dinner.
- food choices : not much, it is same like 4 star hotel.
- valet parking : it was NOT FREE service even though I was staying in this hotel.
- location ; quiet far from mall or other business center.
- no tooth brush and tooth paste in the bath room. I need to go to supermarket to buy those.
- not good coordination between the waiters in the restaurant, I got same question 3 times (do you want to drink something sir) during my lunch. I got disturbed because of this question.
I will not stay in this hotel anymore

The services provided by the hotel staff are excellent. I have been staying in this hotel for the past 3 months and feel its like a home to me. The staff are helpful and willing to assist me at any time. The food is good and agreed that the Citrus restaurant and the staff are great, the supervisor Krishna in particular. Overall, the people are courteous and friendly & the room is also good. Its a value for money hotel. Other staff that are good and commendable are Sanjay & Kathy (Front Desk), Shy, Robin, Paul, Reda & Larisa who always make themselves available to attend to all requests..They make you feel as important guest all the time....Change the corridor carpet if possible to make it look better & more attractive..

Room Tip: Request for higher floors facing the sea view
