“Old Hotel, but lively and I liked it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Hotel is in the centre of Abu Dhabi, just walking distance from Abu Dhabi Mall. Hotel is old, needs refurbishment to keep up with Le Meridien standards. However, for what I paid, it was good value for money. Though it is an old hotel, it was lively at the lobby area and at the outdoor restaurants, especially with Big screen broadcasting the world cup football. Perfect place to watch football and to have a lively dinner.

Hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. I love Le Meridien hotels for their Gym facilities. They have some really good collection of equipments. This is probably the main reason, that I usually stay there. But it will be better if they have a trainer in the Gym or someone we can speak to for any short workout guidance. I also stayed at Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi few weeks back. Though Crowne Plaza gym facility wasn't as exciting as Le Meridien, but they had a good trainer, who was happy to give free advice on workouts and he was very helpful. For that reason, I would consider staying at Crowne Plaza any day. However, when it is personal trip, cost plays a part. Value for money is important. In that aspect Le Meridien wins as long as their cost is competitive.

This is an awesome hotel. From the time you enter the foyer until you leave you will be pampered in the style to which anyone would like to become accustomed...from the Turkish Baths, through the spas to the all around location, shops and more, you will find in this quiet area of Abu Dhabi, such a lifestyle that you will not want to leave...and did I mention the breakfast?? Simply superb...we put on 3 Kg in a week here...mainly the breakfast omelettes I'm sure :)

Room Tip: TRY TO GET A ROOM WITH BAY VIEW...It will overlook the Marina and channel.

We took a chance on staying in June, when it heats up 40c plus. There was a good breeze most of the time, so using the shade sensibly we found it to be OK. Naturally not many tourists due the heat and not busy at weekends. All the other positive reviews say it all. Maybe the garden area around the pool needs a bit more attention and a lick of paint at the ends of the beach walls.
Due to noise from the sports bar below our room, we changed to a quieter room with no fuss at all.
World cup mania!!
Yes, would stay again if the price remains competitive. A pleasant stay.

Room Tip: As high as possible and facing the garden/beach.

The hotel itself is a little bit outdated BUT the staff is amazing. There are some people that have made our -multiple- stays really worth while. Woubit in the coffee lunch is the best and most friendly barista we've come across in the whole of Abu dhabi whom makes the best cappucino ever! Joel the bartender at the pool is most helpfull and always in for a chat. Melody at the front office surprised us with some fruit&wine when we entered the room and is always smiling when we come back to the hotel. Same goes for the assisant front office manager Rita; very personal and friendly! Singh&Hosny have always helped us in the best way possible at pappagallo! Last but not least Hyacinth from the spa always greets us by name and she's as cheerful as her name! Thank you all so very much for all the great stays! We will definitely be back soon.

Warm greetings,

Casper & Esmee
