it was my second time staying at traders hotel and this place never fails to amaze me. everything you need is in there, and the staff's service are really great. it's definitely my "go to" place in abu dhabi.

We stayed in this hotel with our 4 month old daughter. The room was clean, spacious and the bathroom came well equipped with nice toiletries. The staff in this hotel were very good. We had a Executive Suite which meant we got to use the Lounge. The staff here were especially good. Always courteous and friendly. The beach is well kept and have Cabana and lots of sun loungers. All in all, this is a great hotel. Its well situated. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

For the second time we stayed at this beautiful hotel. From arrival you will be welcomed in the best way, check-in fast and room available before the scheduled time. We had a Executive Suite on the second floor. The room is very large and also the bathroom. Very nice balcony looking right on the beach and we used a lot to drink something in comfort. Great cleanliness. Very comfortable bed. The hotel has a quiet private beach right in front and can be used for free. Upon arrival, you set up the sea bed and bring you two bottles of water in an ice-cold thermos. The location of the hotel is perfect for a few days in relaxation and however by taxi without spending too much you arrive everywhere. Breakfast has a lot of sweet and savory choices and I would say it is great. Very nice mosque on the other side of the canal. In short it is our favorite hotel in Abu Dhabi and certainly will be back.

We have chosen the hotel for a three nights layover and it absolutely convinced us. The service was perfect, the room and bathroom were roomy, clean and modern. Breakfast was comprehensive and the buffet dinner was fine as well. We also enjoyed two days at the beach, which was also good. Overall it was a perfect stay for a few days and the price/quality ratio is awesome. Many thanks for a great stay.

Me and my partner went to Abu Dhabi at the end of Oct beginning Nov 2017 for a week. Traders Hotel is absolutely amazing! We chose it as it was one of the few with a private beach within our budget. The room was clean and tidy, modern bathroom (loved the shower) & comfortable bed. Our room was overlooking the swimming pool at the back of the building. We chose half board and we were very happy about it. The first couple of nights it was only a la carte menu and you could only have a main and a dessert (and buffet salad) included in the deal. But from the Tuesday night until the end of our holiday we had buffet dinner! Delicious buffet dinners!!!! On Fridays they do BBQ on the beach ... it’s so good that it gets extremely packed with people that come from outside the hotel. The only con is that service is a bit slow so when it’s a la carte menu night you might have to wait a lil bit before you get what you ordered. Breakfast is amazing and it’s buffet everyday.. freshly squeezed orange juice .. teas coffees .. selection of cereals.. bread .. pastries, fruit and hot food .. homelets... scrambled/fried/boiled eggs .. beef .. minced beef .. rice .. potatoes .. beans .. all sorts! The private beach is quite small, there are about 60 sun loungers, 5 pods an about 6 sort of tents with sofas ... but if you get to the beach and there’s no space they ‘ll find you one . They give you free ice cold bottles of water and they come round with cold flannels to cool you down. Everyone we met at the hotel was lovely and always ready to help when asked. If we found ourself to Abu Dhabi again I would definitely stay at this lovely hotel. The hotel is not very close to the main attraction (which are very few ) but it’s definitely worthy if you are looking to have a relaxing holiday. The max we spent for a taxi to go to the heritage village is £15 for about 30min drive so it’s not too bad.

We booked this hotel when my daughter (23yrs) visited. As she was here for one week we thought a suite would be ok for us all rather than 2 separate rooms. The hotel staff were really helpful when we checked in and up-graded us to the largest suite in the hotel they provided an extra bed in the lounge area (we had our own separate bedroom within the suite). This also gave us access to the Traders Club lounge (you do get this with the suite we booked anyway) for all 3 of us, at no additional cost. So we could have breakfast at either the Club lounge or the Afya restaurant downstairs with the outside terrace. Evening alcoholic drinks and food in the Club lounge between 6pm - 8pm. The food in the Club lounge is quite limited but is generally ok. It is included so you don't necessarily have to eat here just another option. Sometimes we just went here for a couple of drinks and snacks before going out for a meal. The hotel itself is modern with colourful decor and the rooms spacious and clean. Daily housekeeping by very pleasant helpful staff, who greeted us with a smile every time. I would definitely recommend this hotel, we love it because of its nice, relaxed atmosphere. It is also easy to walk to the Shangri-la hotel and the modern Souk al Beri with a good selection of high quality restaurants and cafes serving food from around the World. Often there are deals to be had so check out any 2 for 1 or discounts before you head out for dinner. The Entertainer usually has some discounts so if you are going out with local friends who have purchased this it would be useful. Just a note on the beach area - each hotel has it's own area of beach and all provide sunbeds, towels, umbrellas and coolbox with water at no extra cost.

Husband and I just returned from 5 nights here. We were on 9th floor, room was great with small balcony. Hotel is immaculate. We used the Traders Lounge on 9th floor for breakfast, excellent service , especially from Shun and Isobel who tended to everything and always with a very happy manner. There is a narrow pool on 1st floor, again with very attentive staff on duty. You can walk to indoor souk where several restaurants are also located...we ate at Noodle House twice and was most impressed. The beach area is great, yet again the staff cant do enough to assist you. Will certainly return here if in Abu Dhabi and can recommend.

Just 30 minutes from the bustle of Abu Dhabi, Traders sits next to a sea inlet with its own beach, pool and gym. Adjacent to its five star Shangri-la sister hotel, the two hotels (as well as linking mall) have a wide range of restaurants. If you want a change, take a short call-up ferry across the creek to explore the Venice village complex that over looks the stunning mosque. Service at Traders is kindly and efficient with a good range of delicious food. 😎

I had a short stay for one night on business at the Traders Hotel between the bridges in Abu Dhabi. The room and bathroom were very comfortably and elegantly appointed with all the amenities, at a level typically found in much more expensive hotels. I only dealt with the receptionist and the valet and they were very friendly and helpful, anticipating my needs. Based on the high quality of service and room accommodations at a very reasonable price, I think the Traders Hotel is an outstanding choice for Abu Dhabi. The hotel is in the Between the Bridges area of the mainland, in between and within walking distance to the Fairmont and the Shangri La Hotels and across the channel from the Ritz and the grand mosque. It is about half an hour drive from the Corniche area, so is not so convenient if one's business is in that part of Abu Dhabi. Nevertheless, the proximity to the restaurants and shops at the souk connected to the Shangri La Hotel is a real benefit.

With my family, we stayed in Traders Hotel Qarya Al Beri for 3 days. The long weekend was enjoyed as the hotel has big rooms, helpful staff, and great location. Nearby are few restaurants with different cuisine.
