Position of hotel in Abu Dhabi was good, we were told not to hire a car as taxis were cheap. I am glad I did hire a car, it allowed me to go where I wanted and when I wanted and I never paid for parking, I pre hired the car from the airport. The Hotel, Pool area and beach... More

We booked two rooms for the weekend to celebrate my Mom's Birthday. (this was in September) The rooms were great and spacious and the staff was friendly. Large pool, ample sundecks and towels, great for family weekends. Mind everyone when we did check in, alcohol is not served in this hotel. But overall a great experience.

After wasting time and money with various stays in more "prestigious" hotels in Abu Dhabi - including sister Rotana Beach - I decided to try Rotana Khalidiya and was pleasantly surprised. First of all an excellent check-in experience with Ms Sheila who patiently addressed all my questions and requests with the utmost professionalism. Smart, quick, and a welcoming smile. Definitely...

In most other cities Khalidiya Palace would merit 5 stars but in Abu Dhabi you find plenty of real 5 star hotels, thus I rank this hotel only 4 stars. Positive aspects are reasonably nice location, small private beach and pool area. Public areas are well decorated and maintained. Rooms are reasonably sized, but old-fashioned. Furnishing somewhat worn out (in... More
