This is not a five star experience. Two days was waiting for the hotel slippers ,left garbage bag in front of my door, no one took it for all day. First room was not clean when I checked in, after giving my feedback at the hotel reception we were transferred to different room. Breakfast isn’t worthy, better to take room without breakfast… Read more
This is not a five star experience. Two days was waiting for the hotel slippers ,left garbage bag in front of my door, no one took it for all day. First room was not clean when I checked in, after giving my feedback at the hotel reception we were transferred to different room. Breakfast isn’t worthy, better to take room without breakfast included and go to the Abu Dhabi mall( can enter from the hotel) Got once broken cup with my coffee in morning. Plates with food doesn’t looks fresh either. Small small mistakes makes big difference in experience that you expecting from 5star properties. Lack of attention to small details. Generally there is lots of gaps to be filled for the team. Lastly wanna thank May, from the front desk, she is very lovely lady, which assisted with all troubles we faced, trying to make our stay better. Read less

I booked in Rotana to celebrate wedding anniversary with my husband, only to be embarrassed and ruined the occasion. After arriving in less than 30 minutes, 3 hotel staff and CID came to my room. They requested for my Emirates ID and escorted me to the lobby without any explanation why I was being checked. When I asked why, they said it is because of my court case with Rakbank. That case was already settled since April and thank God I have all the release papers in my email. The CID was on the phone speaking in Arabic, verifying the documents I presented. There was no explanation from the hotel management why and how the CID got there. Or if it was them who reported me to the police. The hotel management should have called me first and checked whether there was a probable cause for the checking, because I could have sent them the release papers and avoid the embarrassment of getting escorted by 3 hotel staff and CID from my room down to the lobby for a case that was already been settled. I went there to relax, only to get embarrassed and stressed out a few minutes after I checked-in. After confirmation that the case was really closed and settled, the CID apologized to me and told me that it was the police station's system that was not updated. But I did not get any apology from the hotel management staff for the embarrassment, hassle and discomfort they have caused me. They don't protect their guests and don't even care to make initial verification or what so ever. They brought the CID to my room and asked me to go with them to the lobby for interrogation without any explanation. This is a warning to all of you guys. Read less
