I checked in through this hotel using a debit/visa card and I found out that they deducted the amount twice. One was charged and the other was put on hold and it will be released after a month. I checked with the hotel and they HAVE NO IDEA AS THEY ONLY CHARGE IT ONCE, but as per the bank the... More

For what our hosts paid for in this hotel, everything was very reasonable. We stayed in a room connecting to another (where my parents stayed). Hubby, myself & the twins enjoyed walking through the rooms when we had to do things together. But it also kept very good privacy when the connecting door is closed. The room interiors felt very...

This hotel is good, décor is a little old. But considering what I paid this hotel is very good for how little I paid. Clean rooms and friendly staff including the chef. But reception staff had no idea about sight seeing tours. When I asked how to get to the Mosque I was told by taxi. The Big Red Bus... More

"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...
