"Cleanliness is not their top priority". When you are opt to stay overnight for your convenience but end up your room is not as clean as you thought paying or spending your money to a not well deserve place is like throwing your money in the trash bin. I just hope they will prioritize cleanliness as possible in order to... More

I stayed there one night during a trip to Thailand. The rooms are very nice and spacious and also the bathroom which I liked very much. Actually they have everything you need in the room, Tv with international channels, freeWiFi, minibar and complementary water. I didn't use any other services in the hotel like breakfast, restaurant or spa. It was... More

Conveniently located. Big rooms. Big bathrooms. Good housekeeping. The front desk staff could be friendlier. The pool could open until a bit later. For the price and location, i will stay at this hotel again when im back in Abu Dhabi.

The room was very clean and big and also great bathroom where you can take bath or shower :) I also liked the modern interior design in room. I would definitely recomend this hotel to other travelers (especially if you can get some great price deals). The staff was very very friendly but also professional.

To be very honest the Royal would not be my first choice of hotel. While it is conveniently located if you want to be in the city and close to Reem Island and the highways to Yas and Saadiyat Island this rather "old" hotel (in the sense of decor) lacks the buzz of say the Beach Rotana Hotel down the...

Stayed in this hotel with a group of cousins because we were attending our cousin's wedding at the Intercontinental. I liked the modern interior design. The sleep quality was good and overall a very clean hotel. Staff were friendly and very professional when they dealt with us, a big group which is checking in all at once. The location is... More

I have been living here for past 2 weeks as my company has booked my self here, I have no other choice. But believe me the reception is worst, I have traveled all over the world and GCC, and even I can find better Hotel in deserts. In Abudhabi you can find extreme untrained/unkind people in Hotel Management only in... More

The hotel was pretty good. I was nervous when I saw the lights running up and down the building. However, there is valet service which may take some time. The hotel has a real Arabic feel too it. The decor is quite busy, but has some appeal. The only problem I had was that I asked for an iron that... More
