The hotel was ok, clean and friendly. But it is just a 'small' standard hotel. That's why I think the price is too high. Small rooms, but a little larger bathroom. So for a business stay it was ok. Do not use this hotel for holiday. You're to far from everything.

Positives: Rooms are very spacious with lots of bathroom space as well. Staff are very friendly and helpful Centrally located in town. Close to al Wahda mall and close to the Corniche area. Could do better: Lobby area and reception area are very small. Not enough selection for English tv channels. Only two English news channels: CNN & CCTV. Movie... More

We didn't plan for the trip and we booked in a hurry. There were a smell of food and cooking, i think the AC is connected to the restaurant or kitchen. It was too noisy, we couldn't sleep.

Excellent value for a hotel a stones throw from the corniche (although not actually on the corniche, although to walk to the seafront would take less than 5 minutes). New, clean and fresh - the quality of the room fittings are excellent and a very pleasant room to spend time in. Only had one night here, but the rooftop pool... More

We spent a week in this property for leisure (maybe our biggest mistake right there) The hotel inside is beautiful, clean and modern. The rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is also lovely with all the new mod cons. The restaurant and door staff were very nice. The only thing letting this hotel down is... More

I loved staying at The Royal Hotel, they made us feel welcome from we came in the door. Loved the rooms, they are spacious and the colors har beautiful. Love the bathroom, with an option of both a tub and a shower, separately. And the line that you can pull out over the tub, to dry your wet bathing suits... More

First time in Abu Dhabi...and what a special city: scenic, modern and squeeky clean! The Corniche area (beach area) is spectacular and begs you for a swim, a sun tan or a long walk. Visit as soon as possible. Royal Hotel is a brand new hotel and is for sure a sparkling star shining brightly in Abu Dhabi. Very large... More
