Small rooms with a small bed. Not good house keeping. There was an stingy smell that upset us when we entered the room. We called the room service but the guy could not do much with the room freshener. Staff is arrogant and unfriendly. Our room was not ready even 9 PM (check in time 2.00 pm) Definitely it is... More

I was looking for a reasonable priced hotel in Abu Dhabi very last minute (one week ahead), and this was the best Booking.com came up with. I payed around 50 euros/ night for a standard studio (no breakfast included), but I was very lucky as my room was overbooked upon arrival, so I got a one bedroom suite! In the... More

Please keep in mind that this is a part of Le Meridien. You will check in and check out at the reception of Le Meridien. The rooms are small, and the beds are small. So, if you are two big people, you'd better consider taking two rooms, as you will not be very comfortable in one. The hotel needs some... More

La Residence is attached to Le Meridien hotel in the Tourist Club area of Abu Dhabi. It is 32km from Abu Dhabi International airport and a DH65 / 12GBP taxi ride. If you ask the taxi drivers they will not know where La Residence is so be sure to ask at Le Meridien (there are 2 Meridien's in Abu Dhabi)... More

This was a cheap option close to the center of Abu Dhabi with on site parking. That's why we choose it. The hotel is actually part of the Meridien hotel. They share the reception and the parking. So you actually check in at the Meridien and then walk towards the seperate building on the left. The room was absolutely tiny.... More
