Al Rawda Arjaan by Rotana
Ranked #43 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 November 2011

This is a very pleasant hotel but for some reason taxi drivers have difficulty knowing where it is, however once you have found it, it is easy.
The room we were given was spacious with king bed, nice bathroom and seating area, we had expected cooking facilities as its advertised as Hotel Apartments so worth confirming when you book.
The Al Wahda Mall is right behind the hotel and the food court is open until 23.00hrs with a variety of fast food outlets. On the lower ground floor is a huge supermarket called Lulu, they have a fantastic choice, not expensive compared to UK prices and would have been great if we had had cooking facilities.
As another reviewer has said, there is no pool but, for a charge, you can use the Beach Rotana pool

Room Tip: Confirm kitchen facilities when booking, especially if booking for a long stay.

Stayed here for only three nights but staff great. this a hotel that would be great for people working in Abu Dhabi or on business. absolutely great room up there with the best intercontinetal or even luxury hotels. but theres no pool. Didnt try the food. Tip, for only 100 Dirham you get a voucher for the Beach Rotana its a 4 minute 8 dirham fare. And gives you what this hotel misses if you are on holiday. Absolutely great value. Nice clean kitchen, great walk in shower and the most wardrobe space I've ever seen in a hotel. Be aware not all rooms have all these facilities.

This is a centrally located hotel right next to the Mall which is very handy. The rooms are spacious and with a small kitchenette with a big fridge, in room snacking becomes easy with supplies from the Lulu supermaket below the Mall.

Room service is efficient and the quality of the main dish's was good. The bread with the meal was always stale.

Internet is an extra and expensive (European rates).

Plenty of taxis drive past the hotel, so transport is easy.

The downside is the noise. At the back of the hotel construction goes on until 330 am and starts again at 0530 and includes reversing trucks with bleepers. Insist on an front facing room and the traffic noise is similar to any city hotel.

No alcohol is available.

Room Tip: Until building at the back of the hotel is complete, insist on a front facing room

Fantastic price for a huge room with what seemed like all new furnishing-kitchen had stove/microwave/fridge. The whole floor is a non-smoking floor so there was no scent of cigarettes at all. It was very quiet--the construction nearby was barely audible. Nice staff and everything appeared to be clean. Food via room service was decent. Room was a wee bit cold at 23.5 degrees despite attempts to adjust the thermostat, but it wasn’t too bad. It is a 2 to 3-minute walk to Al Wahda Mall which has a giant supermarket and a multicultural food court (sushi, Chinese/Thai food, Fuddruckers, and the usual fast food joints). It was one of the nicest rooms I’ve stayed at. I would stay here long term if I need a place to stay in Abu Dhabi.

Room Tip: higher floor

Asalamu alaikum,

Yep Yep, this is the best apartment to stay in at affordable rates.

And an added bonus as it is situated next to the Masjid that is attached to Al wahadah mall. So you'll be able to hear the lovely adhan (call to prayer) and attend the jammat for salat, inshallah.

I must say though there is some building works going on in the area , i think they are expanding the mall.

The gym was great too, small but practical. It was good to see a husband and his fully veiled wife training together.

Only downside, no free internet! even in the lobby.
A nice little gem of a hotel.

I stayed repeatedly for business in Arjaan Rawda and I can recommended it for fellow business travellers.

It is a small hotel, that might be the reason why things are done as they should.

Rooms are clean, breakfast opens nice and early (at 6pm) and offers nice variety and eggs done to your order (poached, omelette, boiled etc), location is central. Due to lack of parking, hotel offers free valet parking, always a nice touch in overcrowded Abu Dhabi.

But what impressed me the most is the great service - from front office (who gave us the rooms with view we requested whenever that was possible) to breakfast staff who bothered to pronounce my name right (not an easy thing!) and remembered we liked soft poached eggs, they were all very hospitable and accommodating!
