This probably has to the fanciest Hotel I've ever stayed at. Everything in the hotel including staff was perfection. Everything seemed to be a spectacle.

Ideal location to enjoy Abu Dhabi Corniche and view of Emirate Palace Hotel. We continue to enjoy the Khalidya Palace by Rotana. This is a really fun place to stay that is especially affordable during the summer months. Great food in the restaurants and great service. Rooms are super comfortable. Again, highly recommend!

As always, there is a little trepidation when booking a hotel following an assessment of trip advisor reviews and some of the negative comments made.
