Sheraton Khalidiya Hotel
Ranked #84 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Reviewed 8 December 2013

i stayed at Sheraton Khalidiya hotel, Abu Dhabi on 23rd Nov during my business trip, i found its convenient location and easy access to most of my meeting venues... i was in a deluxe beach view room and it was a specious room, good linen, basic amenities, free Wi Fi for 3 devices.. but they need to replace the mini bar and keep it filled if they want some mini bar sales... mini fridge was full of corrosion... also there were few discolored and stained tiles in the wash room which looked like not cleaned properly...

however overall its an average experience,, i managed to get a room very last min (on the same day) for a very good rate when everywhere is full, so no complaints... they even offered me a late check out till 4 PM with no fuzz, which i mostly appreciate..

Also the breakfast needs some more items :) :)

I stayed at the Sheraton Khalidya for 4 nights. I liked the location of the hotel. Walking distance to the beach and Khalidya Mall. Marina mall or the Emirates Palace is a short distance by cab. The rooms are big and the bed comfy. There is free WIFI and it's working well. The buffet b'fast was ok, nothing special. The dining room is half smoking and the other half is not smoking. Pool was nice on the top of the hotel, but there is a smeell of fried food. It is really hard to get a cab during the peak hours. I would say this hotel is average, need some update and renovation, but still a good value for your money.

I'm staying at 'the other Sheraton' - the Sheraton, Khalidiya in Abu Dhabi. I believe this is incorrectly listed on Trip Advisor as 'The Khalidiya Hotel'. The Sheraton Khalidiya hotel itself seems like a bit of an afterthought - fitted in along a main road, away from the beach and many other things. This is just an overnight business stay - and it lacks the luxury feel of other high brand hotels I've stayed here in the Emirate. Room is smallish - and the lifts smaller. It didn't help my impression of the hotel that Reception made a mess (30 mins late) of my pre-paid early morning taxi to the airport - 30 minutes making the difference between a last minute rushed check-in - and a relaxed exit to the country. My colleagues stongly recommend the the Sheraton on the Corniche - after my brief stay at the Sheraton in Khalidiya (Zayed the First Street) - I would agree. There are better places for your company to spend their money on you.

Room Tip: As I mention in my review, I believe this Hotel is incorrectly listed on Trip Advisor as the "K...

Went for a business trip. Stayed here for 4 nights. The biggest problem is to get a taxi in the morning from here. I know its a general problem but then the staff also didn't helped much. The downtown restaturant was really nice & much better the Le Veranda. The road side rooms are very noisy.

Room Tip: Dont take a room towards the road

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
