Reviewed 20 April 2017

Very good location, its nice and clean, staff was very helpful specially Majeed and Julie.
Majeed was very kind and would help with parking and moving luggage during check out. He was always happy to help and had a smile on his face at all times. Lots of food places near hotel and lots of markets - Abu dhabi mall is at walking distance.
Only problem at hotel is that there is night club on 10th floor open daily till 330am. If you are very sensitive to noise - think again - I could hear the music in my room on 4th and 3rd floor despite they changing my room.

Room Tip: do not take room next to stairs as vibrations from bar will come all the way down to your room

Dear Drarifullah,

First of all, thank you for your review and to take time to write about your experience at Ramada downtown. In particular, you mention Julie (our reservation supervisor) and Majeed (our concierge) and we will for sure also highlight them during our coming soon staff monthly celebration party and they deserve to receive an award and support.
The noise issue from the roof top bar are our main concern but we have a solution and finally some works will start in May, all shall be completed during the Ramadan time and let's be over of it very soon. This inconvenience has been the most negative point and I am sure you could have score us 5/5 in a better quiet time.

We sincerely hope to see you soon. Julie, Majeed and the entire team are waiting for your return and we will do our best to impress you one more time.

Kind regards
Julien Pechey

We booked a couple of nights in this hotel as we were not sure about its quality nor our plans accuracy for Abu Dhabi.
We booked without breakfast as it seemed too costly.
The first impression when you enter the reception is not that good because the cafe seems closed and not that clean, or at least dusty. For sure it didn't look respectable for a hotel entrance.
But the receptionists are nice and the room was very good except for a stain we had on the floor when we entered.

An interesting part of the hotel is its free underground parking which is accessed using 2 car-elevators. The valet will take your car in and out, but try doing alone once just for the experience :)
This sadly means that it takes more time to leave the hotel usually.

The biggest minus for us was the absence of safe in the rooms. If you have something you want to keep safe, you should approach the reception. But they don't have an actual safe. They rather put things in the office...

We eventually extended our stay by two more nights as we were quiet satisfied with the hotel services and location.

Dear Karim,

Thank you for our review. I would like to clarify the points you have mentioned.

The breakfast price is 69 AED but for hotel guest we charge only 25 per person net which is 6.5 euros for a full buffet. We don't think that is expensive at it's a good value with 10 hot dishes, juices, yogurts, egg station, cereals, cheeses, fresh cut fruits, breads & danishes.

The coffee shop located in the lobby is not closed and operating. Any one can sit there and order coffee or tea and even pastry.
Our hotel offer free valet parking and most of the time, we prefer park the cars in the basement due to the high temperature and dust outside.

This is very strange about the missing safe in your room. After investigation we found that the safe has been removed last week due to a technical problem and the engineering team did not replace it. Of course all our rooms are with a safe, it's part of Ramada brand standards and Abu Dhabi tourism requirement for a 4 star hotel.

We sincerely hope to welcome you again in future and do not hesitate to contact us for special attention and we will adjust according your preferences.

Kind regards

The General Manager

The hotel rooms and facilities look old and outdated and are in serious need of improvements. The room we were given, although a non-smoking room, had a lingering smell of tobacco. The noise from the bars kept us awake until the early hours of the morning. Even the card-key was temperamental-it would work at times but not at others.
Breakfast food mirrored the overall standard of the hotel- acceptable. But the coffee looked and tasted more like murky water. We had to order stronger coffee, which was promptly provided.
Service was, on the whole, acceptable, but not great, although the valeting service was faultless.

This was a great place and was located in a very central location. The room was nice and the wifi worked very good. I was only here for 1 night but I enjoyed it. The people at the front desk was efficient and friendly.
