A real Palace!

Only stayed at this hotel for two nights but it is a very nice hotel in a great position beside the Emirates Palaces. It has great facilities, with lovely rooms. Restaurant was great although the outside one was not fully utilised at this time. Views either side of the hotel give a great appreciation of Abu Dhabi. Communication though not that great, but the staff are friendly and helpful when approached.

Trip to Abu Dhabi

I work in Saudi Arabia and went to AD for a long weekend and stayed at the Khalidiya Palace for 3 nights. The hotel is nice, the staff are friendly and helpful. The first couple of nights were a bit frustrating: TV was not working, electrical outlets did not have power, the tea kettle did not work. Took a few tries to get it right. Other than that my stay was pleasant. Rooms are nice and beds are comfortable. No alcohol in the hotel or restaurants there. No free WiFi either.

Beautiful hotel and amazing staff

We stayed here for a week for my birthday. The staff cannot do enough for you, always smiling, asking how you are. We had a lovely sea view room with gorgeous views. There is a private beach you can sunbathe on with comfy loungers or round the pool. There are two massive pools and a beach bar that you can order food and drinks from. On the day we checked out at 12 noon but only had a late flight so the staff put your luggage into their luggage room and give you a receipt for it. I would stay here every time I was in Abu Dhabi although it is far away from Ferrari world and water world, we also did the grand mosque and the yas marina circuit, but a taxi was 65 dirhams there and 65 dirhams back and it's about 39 minutes away. Marina mall is about a 30 minute walk but it is very very hot, we got a taxi one day and it was only 8 dirhams.

Training trip marathon running.

Ideal location with it's own private beach no shops or restaurants in the immediate area around the hotel . Nearest shopping mall a five minute taxi ride or 20 min walk. Meals in the hotel are very pricey for both morning and evening buffet.

Good time, bad wifi experience

Hotel was beautiful, great rooms. Service was mostly great, but had to call for a keyboard to my room three times before it came (and that one was broken). Two more calls later, and I had a working keyboard. WiFi was the biggest letdown. When you stay at a 5-star hotel, WiFi should be free in your room. Instead, there was free WiFi in the lobby, which was so slow it wasn't worth using. We ended up walking across the street to use the WiFi in another hotel. If, in the future, I'm in that part of the world again, I will stay there, but only if good WiFi is included in all rooms.
