“AN EXCELLENT HOTEL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

I arrived at this hotel with an experience of another brand in the Rotana chain, but I found the Arjaan totally and positively different. The room is very spacious and clean. I stayed on the 11th floor facing the airport road. The layout of the room is quite fantastic - reading/working table with reading light, ironing board and socket outlet, a refreshment shelf with assorted tea/coffee - and I would recommend it to any business traveler. One other advantage of the hotel is its unique location - the very big Al wahda mall is right behind, and next to the mall is the central bus terminus for people connecting other parts of the emirates. On a parting note, the buffet breakfast was a delightful day starter. I hope to visit again...someday.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the airport road gives a good view of the area.

Conveniently located near the mall, shopping, and lots of restaurants, this is a tremendous lodging experience! The Al Rawda Arjaan Hotel is a wonderful facility! Luxurious facilities...Clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms.

Very nice "extra" touches... nice kitchenette with washing machine, microwave, sink, coffee maker, complimentary coffee, tea, and bottled water. The marble and tile bathroom was very nice. It was well equipped with a hair dryer, good counter space, and a walkin shower with handheld shower head (and a comfortable robe as well).

The breakfast buffet on the mezzanine level was fantastic!

Friendly and accommodating staff, great facilities, convenient location! I highly recommend this property!

Three months of stay at hotel, and I have not any complain with staff, facilities or services.. totally good manner staff, and totally nice management. Swimming pool and gymn with excellent sights. Good price against facilities... In the end you are going to save money in this hotel and not going to loose amenities.

I recommend everybody for long or medium stays.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We took a bus from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and stayed at this property very close to the central bus station in Abu Dhabi. The Al Rawda mall lies between the bus station and hotel, so it's convenient to walk through out of the heat.

The hotel is in the middle of AD - pretty much right in the middle between the distance between marina and SZ mosque, so in that respect it's not conveniently walkable to those things, but we booked here with that knowledge.

Our room was on the 4th floor facing the street away from the mall and was subject to some street noise, but that's expected while staying in a city. We all were awakened by the early morning prayer call heard from the various nearby mosques, which was something we never experienced in Dubai or on Yas Island. Being a non-Muslim, I'd probably get annoyed at this if I heard it every morning, but it was interesting for the touristy aspect of it.

The room was great and we've come to appreciate the consistency of the Rotana properties.

Stayed here for 6 nights (2 adults with 2 children) - about 30mins away from Abu Dhabi airport (approx 85 AED). Hotel is 2 mins walk away from Al Wahda mall - plently of eating places if you're not eating at hotel. The entrance is on main road and construction happening as well so not easy for vehicles to turn in through diversions (miss it and you have to go all the way around). It was easier to get the taxi to drop us off at the mall once we got used to the locality. We stayed in the Classic room with twin beds (queen sizes) so easy to accommodate us. Small kitchen (washing machine/dryer, microwave, fridge&freezer, cooker and utensils). Bathroom was a good size with a great walk-in shower. Small gym for use by guests as well. Free bottles each day which was a great touch! We didn't eat at hotel with fussy children so can't comment but the overall experience was great and staff are very polite and eager to help. Easy to get a taxi to get around city by walking to the mall so no problems. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a central location.

We stayed at the Al Rawda twice recently, the first time we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite and the second time we booked a studio. Both were nice and well fitted out, fittings and furnishings were all in good condition. The breakfast was good with a selection of cereals, fruits, middle eastern items and eggs to order. The location is very handy for the Al Wahda mall, less than 100m behind the hotel. On our second stay we had hired a car, parking was a bit of an issue though the staff usually found a spot not too far away for overnight parking.

Room Tip: The hotel, particularly the suites are excellent for anyone who has to spend a bit of time in Abu Dh...
