Take a look at the best value hotels in Abu Dhabi.
The 301-room upscale Traders Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, is a value option located amid a cluster of five-star hotels in Abu Dhabi's Between the Bridges area, on the shores of beautiful Maqtaa Creek. Less lavish than its neighbors, the Traders offers comfort and space, as well as signing privileges at the fancier Shangri-La Hotel, with whom it shares a private beach. The Traders is well located for sightseeing. Rooms are clean, spacious, and modern.
The mid-sized, three-pearl Premier Inn Abu Dhabi Capital Centre is a 242-room business property across the street from the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Rooms are simple but reasonably outfitted and include flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, and air-conditioning. The hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool plus a hot tub, a small fitness center, and an on-site restaurant, lounge, and coffee shop. There are several meeting rooms and computers in the lobby for guests' use. Overall, it's a good business choice for convention-goers, but tourists may wish to look elsewhere due to its removed location.
The upscale Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi is a sophisticated, centrally located property with traditional decor behind its high-rise glass exterior. It's a six-minute walk to the beach, and the hotel provides free shuttles to nearby attractions like Ferrari World. The 305 large rooms have classic, business-like decor and many offer great views. Upgraded rooms get Club Lounge access with free breakfast, appetizers, and cocktails. An outdoor pool is great for a quick dip, although it loses sun by the afternoon, and a spa offers massages, a sauna, and well-equipped gym. A champagne bar is on-site, alongside three restaurants serving varied cuisine. Meeting spaces cater to corporate guests and Wi-Fi is free throughout. Resort-seeking families might want to consider Le Meridien, which has a private beach and bigger pools.
Located in downtown Abu Dhabi, the three-and-a-half-pearl Sheraton Khalidiya is a 10-minute walk from Corniche Beach and eight-minute drive from Khalidiya Mall. The 262-room hotel is a large and aging one, with rooms that can feel anonymous and some bathrooms that are in need of refitting. The most impressive feature about the hotel is its rooftop pool terrace, which has panoramic views over the sea and city skyline. Two restaurants and a bar decorated to look like an English pub are on-site, as are a sauna, steam room, and gym -- though they're not open 24/7. Some guests complain of poor service and cleanliness issues in rooms. Guests looking for a more modern place to stay in the area might want to check out Le Royal Meridien, but rates are higher.
