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...

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...

Julien P, General Manager at Ramada Abu Dhabi Downtown, responded to this review

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...

The hotel rooms and facilities look old and outdated and are in serious need of improvements.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...

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.

I always book a no smoking room and made this clear through my Expedia booking and directly with the hotel. On arrival we were assigned a smoking room as no others were said to be available. The hotel could not move us until the next day (and couldn’t even confirm that a no smoking room would be available). We eventually...

Dear Dolphin712, I understand your remark and would like to apologize for this issue. After investigation with my team, we found that your stay was during the peak time of new year period and that the room category was not available. Due to some reasons, the booking was received to us as a smoking-room and we could not reallocate you...

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

Dear Stefan H, Thank you for your review. We have a bar on the roof top (10) and it's true that it might be disturbing during some events, in particular on Thursday night. We will be happy to welcome you back in a lower floor in future. Kind regards Julien PECHEY
