Centrally located hotel, highly accessible and very close to the Abu Dhabi mall, this hotel is an excellent property.

The rooms are clean with great housekeeping staff and an equally responsive front desk. Their continental breakfast is also good if not great- only thing is that it not complimentary like in other hotels. I also got a choice of few Indian dishes.

The view from the 11th floor was very good. The rooms are peaceful and the ambiance is also wonderful.

Had some problems with their Wi-Fi- it was frequently cutting off and in spite of several requests, their technical staff could not fix it.

Otherwise, this is a great property and I recommend this to everyone, particularly business travelers.

I stayed in the newly opened Ramada Abu Dhabi corniche for 2 weeks. It was booked by my company due to proximity to their office. It wouldn't have been my choice.

Firstly the name is misleading. The hotel is not on or next to the corniche, although some rooms do have nice corniche views. The corniche is a 7 minute walk away across a busy series of roads.

The hotel is newly open and looks nice and fresh, and one would expect a few minor "teething problems", however the issues which I encountered indicated more widespread poor management and training. Some of these took several days to resolve.

Firstly the positives:

- nice views across the corniche to Lulu island and the dhow port (request a high floor, sea facing room)
- beds are good although pillows very hard (other pillows can be requested)
- breakfast buffet is pretty good if included in your room rate (otherwise over-priced)
- staff are friendly and kind, if often disengaged and poorly supervised
- business centre is fine
- nice (very small) rooftop pool and terrace
- room service meals good

The problems encountered:

- poor cleaning of bathroom, with black mildew in tiles around bath tub
- leaking bidet
- TV regularly faulty, requiring maintenance to be called to fix
- one lift usually out of service leading to delays
- stale cigarette smoke coming through the AC one night (probably due to someone smoking in a nearby room, even though it was supposed to be a non smoking floor)
- restaurant staff seem disinterested and not proactive
- shower head is not fixed making it difficult to angle
- low quality bathroom amenities
- inadequate shelf space in wardrobe
- lower floors suffer from traffic noise from the busy highway in front of the hotel

Also accessing the hotel by car or taxi is difficult. The engineer who designed the access road and parking should be sacked!

The Ramada is not a terrible hotel but needs to get its act together because there are many competitors in Abu Dhabi in the 3 star bracket, some of which perform much better.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, sea facing. Lower floors are noisy

My wife, little boy & I decided to stay here for 1 night. We wanted to see more of Abu Dhabi instead of Dubai for a change.

Travelling from Al Ain, the hotel was very easy to find. Although I did use maps on my mobile phone because I'm not used to Abu Dhabi.

The location was very good. Close to fast food places & restaurants, close to Abu Dhabi mall & Al Wahda Mall, also close to the corniche. The corniche is stunning! Huge promenade that stretches alongside the beach. It has kiosks along the way with food, drinks & ice creams.

We arrived at the hotel and the valet came to greet us right away. Doors opened for us and a polite greeting. He unpacked our luggage from the car onto the trolley and took it into reception.

Checking in was very easy and quick. We did have a slight hiccup as we booked a king sized bed but was given 2 twin beds. So back down to reception and the issue was resolved no problem.
We even managed to check in 1 hour earlier than we were supposed too.
When booking online, I did request a main corniche view and maybe something complimentary towards us celebrating our wedding anniversary (other hotels have done this).
We didn't get the main corniche view, wasn't too bothered, but no effort was made or we didn't get an explanation why we couldn't have it. Also, no message or gifts etc were given towards our wedding anniversary. Once again, wasn't too bothered, just no effort made again (other hotels have done this).

We requested a cot for our baby which wasn't in the room ready. So after a quick call to reception, they brought one right up.

After unpacking and settling in, we got changed and went up to the rooftop swimming pool.
It has amazing views over the corniche, city and boat yard with the abras/dhows.
The only thing I can really complain about would be the safety. Both pools didn't have depth indicators, letting us know how deep the pools were. The kids pool was quite deep too! I would never let a child swim alone in there. I am 6ft 1" and the water was about my waist level.
Also, because of the stylish and modern build of the hotel, the flooring around the pool was marble like tiles. Very very slippery! There wasn't any 'caution/warning slippery floor' signs (even though it was obvious). I think they should have anti slip flooring like in water parks.
On the plus side, there was a board that showed pool temperatures and they were warm.

Our room was very nice. I was very surprised. For the price and location, I expected an average room, uncomfortable bed and a bit dirty. But no! It was perfect!
The room was very spacious. Big TV on the wall, huge comfortable bed, nice bathroom. All very modern!
The down sides to the room though, the bedside lamps didn't work. When our son went to sleep, we either had the option of all lights on, or no lights on.
Also, the big tv on the wall which was nice (Sony Bravia!), didn't work! No channels worked as the tv wasn't setup. So we couldn't watch tv and we couldn't read either.
The interconnecting door was tried a few times by our neighbours. Just trying to open it a few times. Also, their tv was very loud! (At least their tv worked!). The rooms certainly aren't sound proof.
I can sleep through anything so I'm lucky, but my wife was awake throughout the night a lot! She said the same neighbours with the loud tv, were up until 3am!!! They were in the hall talking with friends and being very loud. Then they all went into their room to continue talking loudly.

Last little problem before the round up... the private car park out back isn't huge. This is because it's still being built. There are bricks and tools everywhere. And because of the building going on, there were disgusting puddles of smelly, dirty liquid.

All in all though, the hotel itself is fantastic. It's very modern and stylish. Very affordable and a great location. All staff are very polite and helpful, no problems there. Comfortable bed, spacious rooms and very clean.
It's a 4 star hotel, but I'd even given 41/2 stars.
It's just a shame about those little issues. It just needs those minor improvements met and the hotel and surroundings would be perfect!

I'd definitely recommend anyone to stay here, even though I'd say it's more for business, singles or couples. Hasn't really got things for kids.
I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: Stay higher up the building. You have a better view over the city or corniche. We stayed on the side...
