I was very pleased with the level of service. All staff were exceptionally helpful, they anticipated any questions or queries, and were always timely in their actions. Any issue was very promptly dealt with to my full satisfaction. The facilities were excellent and everything was clean and tidy. Probably the best hotel experience I have had in recent years on...

I must say it has one of the friendliest hotel staff I ever encounterred - staff is international (not unusual in UAE) - extremely helpfull and always great you with a smile. If I should ever go to Abu Dhabi again, I'll surely will stay at Khalidiya Palace. The only thing is (maybe for all UAE valid) no free wifi... More

Good property, has a swimming pool and a beach where only guest from the hotel can visit. Very close to the emirates palace which is a 7 star hotel. Marina mall is 15 minutes walking distance from this hotel.The etihad building is close to this hotel. The only drawback is it is far away from the heart of the city.

My two adult children and I booked the Khalidiya Palace for a one night stay prior to spending time in Dubai. From the very moment we walked into the lobby area of this hotel, we were greeted by the friendliest and most helpful staff of any hotel we had ever before experienced. I had mistakenly booked a room that would... More

Almost everything is perfect. Beautiful pool. Good location. I walked to Marina Mall in 35 minutes. My walk was not boring. City is high degree safe. Very good designed, silent and clean rooms. Bed was comfortable. Just breakfast was not rich enough and taste was avarage. Ideal for family stay.

What can I say about this hotel, one work FAB-U-LOUS. Our car turn up at the front of the hotel, and a man steps forward to open the car door, whips away your luggage and by the time you have checked in, the case was in your room. I think this was the speediest check-in in any hotel we have... More
