Good hotel with ok rooms for a good price. But dont sleep on the 8th floor, because of the Philippine party on the 10th floor. Nice and good staff. I got some great help from them. If I go back to Abu Dhabi, I will visit Ramada

Arrived very late & were greeted warmly and were offered a late check-out. Our room was super & breakfast was very pleasant. The receptionist was very friendly and even lent me his stapler for 15 mins!!!!!! Happy to recommend this hotel & look forward to returning one day.

Well this hotel had nothing to complain about as such. Decent room size , all amenities in the room. But it had no distinguishing factor. The area this is located in is pretty laidback and you can find a lot of good restaurants at a walkable distance. I have stayed in Indian Ramada properties and they were much better than...

I chose this hotel due to the name; however I was completely disappointed. We stayed for 11 nights and booked 2 rooms. Rooms: On entry to the rooms we were greeted with a terrible mouldy, stale cigarette smell and this continued each time we entered the room. This was despite the room was supposedly being non-smoking. And they had locked...

I was telling the front desk about how grateful I was to have gotten a hotel room there. The head concierge brought me a glass of apple juice to cheer me up. Thea, one of the front desk women...

The hotel was very basic. The location is good and there is a grocery store one block away, which was very nice. Rooms were clean but quite dark, sometimes there wasn't enough towels or toilet paper. The key cards had to be remagnetised nearly every day as they stopped working. Our room was on the 4th floor and still we...
