“Frequent home from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I have been staying at this hotel for various periods from 1988 until now. During that period it has had various names including Radisson SAS, Sheraton Hotel, Sheraton Apartments until the current title Khalidya Hotel (locally still known as Sheraton Khalidya). My wife and I really like staying here and generally stay for 2 1-2 months or longer, but it is equally good for a shorter visit.

Yes, it is an older property, but we keep coming back because it is convenient, comfortable and good value plus as noted by other reviewers the staff are pleasant.

If you are staying for a longer period do try and get an Executive Suite with kitchenette area, and of course a Corniche View it is worth the extra cost (separate lounge and bedroom area) it for the extra space and convenience of having cooker hob for the occassional home cooking. If you are a family you can also esily get an extra bed in the lounge area.

Key plus points are
Location - 5 minutes walk from the main beach, handy for supermarkets and easy to grab a cab to get anywhere,
Comfort - one of the most comfortable beds ever!
Spacious - older property = bigger rooms,
Staff - experienced and friendly and if you have a problem they will sort it.

Downsides
Ok some of the equipment and furnishings in the common areas are worn, but who spends much time in those areas??
3rd Avenue Pub on the ground floor, could be very pleasant but spoilt by the absence, or ineffective air cleaning system - the air is always loaded with smokey atmosphere even when the place is empty, but you have a choice plenty of other options in the city, just a walk or cab ride away

One of the best hotels ive stayed in.
Firstly the welcoming was very warm by staff and the cystal chandeliers and view of the lobby are to die for.

the room was fantastic too. Very homely and spacious bathroom. Refrigerator and microwave was included within the room and complimentary gifts were good too. Included a comb (",)

Only negative about room is that wifi was not included in price unless used on the hotel television. And also city view consisted of a building site to the right but a beautiful mosque to the right.

Outdoor area was very nice, very relaxing.

foodnis very pricey but buffet was amazing, well worth the price.

Room Tip: City view consists of a building site

Stayed here as it is local to the offices I was visiting in Ruwi.

Nice hotel, rooms I bit basic, but clean & tidy.
Not the quietest of hotels (walls a bit thin, doors easy to slam etc.) but more than acceptable.

Room service is very efficient and portions are huge!
Can't comment as to the restaurants, as mainly ate out with others.

Staff are very helpful and can offer many suggestions as to what to do / where to go etc.

All in all, would defiantly stay again for business.

I liked this Hotel we stayed for 3 nights and found all staff helpful and friendly, the English bar was a welcome relief for my husband who could finally enjoy a pint of Stella and the food was great too. Room service was fast friendly and very reasonable (this coming from someone who wasnt sure about exchange rates and values before travelling) The only downside was the rooftop pool was not heated. As a family we would stay here again the room was comfortable and provided all you needed after a day exploring.

Room Tip: get the a/c so that you can set it yourself as automatic is a pain during the night if you feel the...

I lived there for a few days in a room on the 15th floor. Above I had a rooftop pool. Small, with cold water and a few chairs. The rooms themselves rather standard sizes, but with one small window (also leaking - a wind blowing). Thus, in a dark room. But the sight very attractive. Food is a big plus of this hotel - delicious, every day something new. Kitchen Arabic, Asian, Indian. Large selection. Nice location - close to everywhere on foot or by taxi. At the bottom of a large pub with a beer and strong alcohol. The hotel staff friendly, the pub staff very rude. But it's hard - it was not bad.

This hotel was recommended by the local colleagues for my stay during a business trip. For the business trip, it proved to be a good choice. However, having been to Abu Dhabi before, for purposes of a vacation, I would go with another property. While on the business trip, we had the service of the company car and taxis, but otherwise I would want to be in a location that were more conducive to walking (yes, I do realize it gets very hot in some seasons).

The hotel lobby was rather luxurious, though check-in is on a higher floor. The hotel restaurant serves a tremendous variety of offerings for breakfast. The room service breakfast was extraordinary with its variety of offerings, choices and quantity. While intended for just one person, it could have fed an army.
.
The service at the front desk was quick, welcoming and responsive. The room was like a room at US Sheraton, or Hilton, or Marriott, meaning dependably good, but not out of the ordinary. It was a very nice room, though. The bathroom was clean and rather upscale. There were slippers and bathrobes available in the room.

Overall, this was a nice hotel for business purposes, in particular.
