Some reviews are negative and concentrate on one or two aspects therefore I thought I would try to give a more balanced view. I have used this hotel many times on business and considering its location its good value for money and a mini resort in itself.
Ally Pally Bar – yes full of prostitutes but you don’t have to go in and when you do a polite know twice any they leave you alone.
Small bar adjacent to the Ally Palley is a lively Filipino venue with Filipino food and locals belting out a few numbers in-between the band playing.
The best Thai restaurant in Abu Dhabi, haven’t tried the Italian, breakfast is good, PJ’s Irish bar with Irish food and rock band great sitting outside by the pool, Chinese restaurant and nightclub and some other restaurant which eludes me.
Rooms small but adequate and the staff are always willing to change your room if you don’t like it. I once also had two insects in my room and this was due to treatment of the plants along one particular side and was soon changed.
You get what you pay for and one of the best feelings is knowing you are sharing a very good pool and facilities with the Royal Meridian for much less. The hotel faces onto open parks and should you find yourself bored around the pool you can walk through the park and cross under the subway to sit on the Corniche. For thoes wanting traditional or fast food it’s an easy walk even in summer. Location and facilities far outweigh some of the negatives regarding rooms and as such I have even taken my family whist having to stop over on a weekend. It’s not a traditional concrete and glass hotel in the middle of bustling streets and makes a nice change to have open parkland to stroll through.
