Al Diar Regency Hotel
Ranked #112 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Reviewed 23 January 2014

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip to Abu Dhabi. The room is big enough with basic furnishings like a study table, a coffee table, closet and electronic safe. They also provide complimentary coffee inside the room along with a bottled water. The bathroom is clean and with basic toiletries and equipped with a hair dryer. The shower’s water pressure is fine and does not run out of hot water.

It is a pretty decent hotel for its price. I only paid AED 250/night (US$ 66) and that includes buffet breakfast with Wi-Fi internet connection that has a good signal inside the room and in the coffee shop. Breakfast though is very basic and with very little choices but considering the rate I guess it is fair enough. The restaurant by the way is open 24 hours and serves breakfast as early as 6 AM until 10 AM.

Check-in is easy and the gentleman at the reception when I checked-in is well mannered but he could use a smile from time to time. The staff in general are courteous and helpful. The location is also very easy to find as it is just opposite the well known Sheraton Hotel at Al Meena road near Mina Zayeed Port which is about 30 to 45 minutes away from the airport depending on traffic conditions. Getting a taxi is easy as the hotel is near main roads.

I would consider staying again in this hotel when I visit Abu Dhabi. However I hope the management can consider investing on better quality beds to have good sleep quality as I woke up each morning of my stay with an aching back.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the sea to get a great view.

The only thing going for this hotel is the location, but as the hotel has no parking facilities, the location is a nightmare because we drove around for about 15 minutes to find parking close to the hotel.
When we arrived at the hotel the doorman rudely informed us that we were not allowed to park in front of the hotel to unload our luggage. As we were three adults and two small children (6 months and 3 years) the was quite a lot to unload. We were then allowed to park in the front while checking in and getting the luggage to the rooms.
We had booked 2 double rooms for 2 adults plus 1 child. We requested a cot for the baby and a very old and dirty camping cot was brought to our room. There was no mattress in the cot and the only bedding they provided for the cot was 1 single blanket, I don't know whether this was meant to be folded to be used as mattress or as blanket.
The hotel smelled very mouldy and the bedding felt damp, the mattress was very hard none of us had any sleep. The walls in the rooms are not soundproof and we could hear everything that was said or done in the rooms on either side of us.
The bathroom needs serious maintenance and a very good clean. The taps in the bathtub is not functioning properly and you have to hold the spout while opening and closing it otherwise the whole tap just turns in the wall.
Definitely NOT 3 star quality hotel, and not worth the money. Even guest traveling on a budget can get much better quality for their money.

Stayed 1 night on transit from Kuala Lumpur to Toronto. It took the staff more than an hour to check us in. Rooms were small but clean. Watch out for the door stoppers on the floor. I kicked on it and bruised my toes badly. Breakfast was simple but sufficient.

Bed was very uncomfortable, it is a lower end property than we prefer. No variety in the daily buffet. Staff were friendly. One night is all we could handle. Those looking for budget would find this property acceptable

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and almost every weekend :) i have booking here, i've never tried to booked in other hotel as i find this cheaper compare to others, with free internet, compliments inside the room, and a friendly staff, this makes me think not to look for other hotel to stay in during my weekends. also good location, and near to abu dhabi shopping malls. Though i've never tried other ameneties which is available int his hotel like bars, and restaurant, Spa, etc., still i would recommend this hotel to my friend and to anyone who are looking for a good place to stay at a cheaper price.

I stayed here overnight during February, 2013. The hotel do not provide value for money. The rooms are small, congested and kind of run down. However, the staff was cheerful and friendly, acceded to my request of an extended check out upto 4 pm. The restaurant on the top floor over looking the sea is an attraction although the view is now obliterated by a building under construction.
