Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi
Ranked #36 of 128 Hotels in Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Stayed at the Traders Hotel as I was attending a conference at the Fairmont next door. Always a service with a smile from all members of staff throughout, from reception, to housekeeping to the bar and waiting staff. The bedroom was really a big size and had probably the biggest side board running across the full length of the wall as I've ever seen in a hotel. Bathroom with separate shower and bath were excellent.

There was one day we accidentally left on "Do not disturb" and so our room wasn't cleaned when we got back from the conference sessions - we popped back out for a couple of hours having taking the sign off the door and sure enough when we got back the rooms had immediately been cleaned, so we were really impressed. The beds were so comfy too and the pillows were ideally for sinking in to! Had a couple of really nice lunches in the hotel restaurant sitting out on the terrace.

I have to say, besides the price we paid and the service we received, the Internet Wifi Connection was probably the single best thing (we know from colleagues staying in the Fairmont they didn't experience the same thing as ourselves), it was excellent, high speed, never dropped out and was available to use on all devices without having to login with stupid passwords or by paying money for it - First Class.

Definitely visit the Grand Mosque during your trip to Abu Dhabi - wow! (go early in the morning and join one of the Free Tours at 10am the guys and ladies who take the tours have a lot of knowledge and experience, not only of the Mosque but about the local culture too).

Room Tip: Would be nice to have a Canal view looking over towards the Grand Mosque

Excellent experience. Was upgraded to a club room upon check-in and offered extended checkout until 4:00 pm. Room was very spacious, modern, and comfortable. Beach was nice (though sand was slimy) and pool was nice, but a bit small. Only downside was that the staff at the Shargri la next door would not let us use their pool, which is silly considering the hotels are owned by the same company and adjacent to each other.

As we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary we wanted somewhere for relaxation and guaranteed sunshine! Well Abu Dhabi is certainly the place!!!
We stayed at the Traders by Shanri-La and wow what a fantastic time we had.
From the moment if arrival at the hotel we were warmly greeted by very friendly staff... Something you don't always get upon check in! The hotel bedrooms were magnificent, very spacious and immaculately clean... In fact the entire hotel was! From the corridors to the poolside!
We visited the main hotel the Shanri-la daily, we took the golf buggy ride down after breakfast and spent our day rubbing shoulders with "Olympic Gold Medalists" lazing by the pool!
I can't rave enough about the food... It was devine, from the salads for lunch to the 5* Bou doux restaurant in the evenings! The staff in both hotels were magnificent, they simply couldn't do enough for us! If your looking for a good luxury hotel then traders is the one with the added bonus of the use of the Shangri-la facilities!
We will definitely be returning soon!

This was my first trip to Abu Dhabi and the Traders hotel was just wonderful. My executive suit was outstanding, bathroom was big and had all the little touches you didn't know you needed and the staff here are just so friendly without being over eager and annoying. I will be coming back for sure! Absolutly made my holiday! Reccomend the Traders club lounge, this was great and free nibbles and wine just topped off my day. All the food here was good. My experience was all fantastic not one thing I can say as bad!

After a swift check in with polite staff, I went up to my room which was a great size with a gorgeous bed. It was comfortable, stylish and gave me a superb night sleep.

The air conditioning was easy to use, the shower was powerful, the literature laid out was helpful and above all, it was quiet. The TV doesn't have the best range of channels but I have experienced worse. Would have been good to have a kettle to make your own tea but the in house food and drink was reasonably priced and the meals in the evening were great quality.

Staff were super friendly and offered help wherever they could. The privately attached beach was lovely and the teams out there always made sure you had plenty of free water to drink. At times the boats and jet skiers were annoying but bearable.

It was close to a modern day souk up the road, about five minutes walk and not too far from the airport.

The hotel felt contemporary yet classy, safe and a nice retreat from the noise of modern day Abu Dhabi.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in a room with lounge access. The deluxe room was very comfortable, with a large bathroom, and small balcony. Given the size of the room the window was a little bit small, which hampered the overall view of the room. We had room service twice, and the food was delicious. The staff were all very friendly and gave us the requested late check-out with no problem at all.

The lounge was great, but at times very busy. Breakfast time was particularly chaotic if you arrived after about 8.30am. Once we had to leave the lounge because there was no seating at breakfast time, the other two days we went at about 7.30am when there was no crowd. (It was Easter weekend so perhaps this had something to do with it.) Other than that during the day it made a great place to stop and have a drink or snack.

The beach is fairly small, but well kept. The staff on the beach were attentive, and provided a cool box of water and towels. As the hotel is part of the larger Shangri-La complex and walking along the front promenade was lovely, and we had a great drink in the Shangri-La bar. There are plenty of restaurants in the Souq complex.

The hotel has a great location in Abu Dhabi – sort of equidistance from Yas Island and Abu Dhabi proper. It was easy to get a taxi at the hotel, and relatively inexpensive to get around Abu Dhabi. (The taxi drivers on the other hand range from polite to rude!).

There are so many hotel choices in Abu Dhabi it’s hard to choose. Would I stay at this hotel again? Yes. But would I also look at other hotels for a different experience? Yes.

All in all the best features about the hotel are: the location, the price and the look & feel.

Room Tip: Request a sea / mosque view.

We had an excellent stay, fabulous service coupled with nice surroundings made it memorable. We had a club room which was large and the only problem we encountered was the staff in the club lounge who always made us feel we were intruding and who over policed the lounge. The food was average and the afternoon tea consisted of a piece of cake. We avoided it for breakfast and had it in the regular dining room which provided an excellent service with a bountiful array of delicious food, which my scales can verify! I would certainly return.
