“very happy with this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

hi all,

i stayed in this hotel in NOV 2013 with my best friend....we were very very happy. i see many people say that its hard to get a taxi? it was not hard at all, we never waited once for a taxi.

the hotel is very clean and neat and rooms are wonderful- we had a sea view and was delighted to look at out our window everyday.

Staff was friendly and helpful- check in went so quick i was amazed-even though we arrived so much earlier than check in- my room was ready.

its also so easy, lots of shops and food places in the same road...and with a 2 AED bus you can go to marina mall in 5-10 min.

Also very close to main bus station 5min away where you can even take a bus to ferrari world for only 4 AED....

This hotel is definitely a very good hotel- i will come back any day!!!!

Sheraton Khalidiya Hotel is ideal for business travellers as it's convenient for getting around. But as pointed out by many, taxis are very difficult especially in rush hours and the hotel staff are not at all helpful in this regard. Check-in is on a different floor and it’s a bit confusing when you land up at about 2 a.m and there is no one to guide you.

Rooms are average size, well maintained with dark corridors and don’t have a sea view. Furnishings and amenities lack the luxury that comes along with a five star grade. There is only one restaurant with a wide choice from Arabic, Continental, Indian and Chinese dishes. Complimentary breakfast was good. The Pub is noisy, smoky and crowded too. Staff seemed to be simply doing their job. At any place in the hotel, they didn’t seem to be warm and friendly.

Overall, location wise this is ideal for business travellers. Otherwise, there are definitely better hotels in Abu Dhabi.

Stayed at this hotel. Good for a business trip. Hard to get a taxi.
Though it is a sea view, but the window is so small to get a good view.
Staff are very co-operative. Excellent Wi-Fi. Breakfast was ok.

Room Tip: Go for corner rooms. I luv the omelette here.

i stayed at Sheraton Khalidiya hotel, Abu Dhabi on 23rd Nov during my business trip, i found its convenient location and easy access to most of my meeting venues... i was in a deluxe beach view room and it was a specious room, good linen, basic amenities, free Wi Fi for 3 devices.. but they need to replace the mini bar and keep it filled if they want some mini bar sales... mini fridge was full of corrosion... also there were few discolored and stained tiles in the wash room which looked like not cleaned properly...

however overall its an average experience,, i managed to get a room very last min (on the same day) for a very good rate when everywhere is full, so no complaints... they even offered me a late check out till 4 PM with no fuzz, which i mostly appreciate..

Also the breakfast needs some more items :) :)

I stayed at the Sheraton Khalidya for 4 nights. I liked the location of the hotel. Walking distance to the beach and Khalidya Mall. Marina mall or the Emirates Palace is a short distance by cab. The rooms are big and the bed comfy. There is free WIFI and it's working well. The buffet b'fast was ok, nothing special. The dining room is half smoking and the other half is not smoking. Pool was nice on the top of the hotel, but there is a smeell of fried food. It is really hard to get a cab during the peak hours. I would say this hotel is average, need some update and renovation, but still a good value for your money.

I'm staying at 'the other Sheraton' - the Sheraton, Khalidiya in Abu Dhabi. I believe this is incorrectly listed on Trip Advisor as 'The Khalidiya Hotel'. The Sheraton Khalidiya hotel itself seems like a bit of an afterthought - fitted in along a main road, away from the beach and many other things. This is just an overnight business stay - and it lacks the luxury feel of other high brand hotels I've stayed here in the Emirate. Room is smallish - and the lifts smaller. It didn't help my impression of the hotel that Reception made a mess (30 mins late) of my pre-paid early morning taxi to the airport - 30 minutes making the difference between a last minute rushed check-in - and a relaxed exit to the country. My colleagues stongly recommend the the Sheraton on the Corniche - after my brief stay at the Sheraton in Khalidiya (Zayed the First Street) - I would agree. There are better places for your company to spend their money on you.

Room Tip: As I mention in my review, I believe this Hotel is incorrectly listed on Trip Advisor as the "K...
