Rated 2 out of 5 by ElieAlChini Great Location, but needs up keep.
The hotel is probably in one of the best locations in Abu Dhabi core. Seems to me that no upkeep was done to this hotel since the 70's.
I couldn't sleep all night because of mosquito.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Calimero refurbishment is needed
The booking was made on MY name. I asked several time to correct that, but nobodoy was willing to do so. That caused questions every time I signed a bill...
During checking in, we asked if we can park our car in front of hte hotel --> yes. But they forgot to tell us: "in front of the hotel" means only small dedicated area. So we got a ticket.. complaining we were told why we did not asked the concierge to park the car... (again nobody told us while checking in)
We stayed 4 nights in the Meridien in Dubai. That is what we expected when booking a Meridien.
In both hotels we booked the "Royal Club". But only in Dubai breakfats was served the Royal Club (Champagne included).
The hotel needs a refurbishment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJW77 The Staff make it great
Our introduction to Le Mèridien Abu Dhabi was not the best! A breakdown in communication regarding our early check in left my wife and I waiting over two hours without being offered refreshments. Once we brought this to a staff members attention our cause was quickly escalated and refreshments and room appeared swiftly.
The lobby of Le Mèridien Abu Dhabi is impressive the golden plaque of VIP patrons list the worlds greats. However upon closer inspection the building reveals it's age and here and there it's need for some TLC!
The lobby, the outside dinning areas, the beach and the poolside are fantastic places to sit and relax. Beware if you are a no smoker, smokers are free to pollute your air at all these locations. Of greater concern, for two nights our neighbour was a smoker, despite being in a non smoking room!
That said I would recommend this hotel!!,
The staff arranged an outside table for my wife and I as far away from smokers as they could. The staff apologised about out chain smoking neighbour and offered to move us to a different room.
The staff poolside are chatty friendly and remember not only your name and order but passed conversations and interactions. The dinning staff our knowledgable professional and it was lovely to see them interacting with children, stopping work to take photos and generally being excellent host whilst still undertaking the busy task of running a restaurant.
The friendliness of the staff extends to other departments both front of house and housekeeping. That said housekeeping need to up their game! We are 7 nights into our 9 night stay, each day we have had to ring for wine glasses and glasses, which are taken but not replaced and we are yet to have a full set of towels replaced!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janiel Exceeded our expectations
We booked here because of the location. What we found were staff that took pride in offering a high level of service. Any reservations about the age of the facility were quickly overshadowed with smiles, helpful information, a variety of dining options and every facility we could want. We will be staying here for all future Abu Dhabi vists.
