“Exceptional staff, an excellent five star hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

We have just returned from the Millennium, after a two week stay. We didn't want or expect a resort hotel with on site facilities and a large pool area, the Millennium's info makes quite clear the fact that it is in the city with no private beach, i.e. it is primarily a business hotel (although the Corniche is well within walking distance). If you want a clean, very comfortable, quiet and efficient hotel with wonderful staff then this is the place to stay. We wanted a hotel from which to explore the wonderful city of Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE and the Millennium was a peaceful base to come home to at the end of busy days. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful; there is a real family atmosphere there.

The Millennium was recommended to us by a businessman who frequents AD and has tried all the five stars.

Breakfast was excellent and the restaurant, although busy, never felt crowded. The Club Room deal (free refreshments in the Club Lounge all day) should not be compared to an all inclusive deal at a resort hotel; that is not its intention.

The pool is more than sufficient for an emergency swim and cool down after a busy day.

We have visited plenty of other five and seven star hotels in both AD, Dubai and the other Emirates. The Millennium always at least matches their standards. Service is always of a high quality in the Gulf States, but the staff at the Millennium are among the very best.

While there is no beach at the hotel, the public beaches of AD are just a AED 10 taxi ride away. Head for Gate 3, a family beach (no groups of males allowed). Entrance is a few dirhams and a comfortable sunbed and parasol can be hired for just AED 25 per day. You don’t have to worry about leaving your stuff on the beach while you have a swim either, which makes a pleasant change. Alchohol is prohibited on the public beaches, not a problem for us otherwise we’d have opted for an all inclusive in Spain.

REcently stayed at this hotel with two of my work colleagues for 5 nights. Hotel was nice - very clean - staff very friendly. Rooms quite comfortable. Sevilos Italian restaurant within the hotel - decor becoming a bit dated. Pool area is very small. Some days the newspaper is supplied and then others it is not supplied - only supplied in Arabic.Some days turn down service provided some days not provided. Staff generally helpful and attentive. Even though we requested to be on the same floor prior / during booking process when we arrived we were on different floors and had to request to be re-located so that all of us were on the same floor. I ended up with a twin room rather than a king room as per our original booking. One of the nights Dinner in the downstairs area was to include - drinks - never saw a drink all night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the Corniche.

We have just returned from 7 nights in the Millennium Hotel. I for one was quite disappointed, it says 5 star but it is nothing like that. People were friendly enough, dont get me wrong. But I have stayed in 5 star properties before and I was treated like a queen, with lots of little extras that make the day. There was none of this at the Millennium. We paid for a club room, but even that compared to the other hotels I have paid the extra for was diappointing, The rom had everything you need, but very drab, brown everywere. The club room was okay, and a very nice lady Angelina catered for our needs and very polite and helpful with it. During the day you could only go to the club room for refreshments, but if you were at the pool, you would have to go up 13 flights in the lift to get a drink, I dont think so. I think if you are paying for the extra, you should be able to get a drink during the day at the pool. Pool area (small) very okay for us, but NO person coming to the sunbed and putting a towel down for you (like other 5 star hotels), no person bringing water out to you etc etc. These are things that 5 star hotels do. We booked into the Yas Hotel midweek for one night, and we saw the difference (I have done a review for this). I did have a deep tissue massage done by Ram and it was terrific, very good at what she does ! We ate in Sevilo's twice the food here was great, and it is lovely to sit outside. I have to say remember that everything you buy in AD (food as well) comes with 16% tax on the bill. If I was returning to Abu Dhabi I would try another hotel, I feel this one caters for business people.

Room Tip: Prayer calling was around 5am every morning, so we heard this quite loud and we were facing the corn...

It was a awesome weekend staying in the Millennium Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel decoration is from the highest quality. The rooms are very tasteful decorated and the furniture are from the highest quality. I would really like to recommend this Hotel to any traveller travelling to Abu Dhabi. The room rates are affordable, very good room rates and the included breakfast were the icing on the cake, because breakfasts in UAE Hotels are very costly.
