Filey, United Kingdom1 contribution

I had a requirement to stay over close to the airport and the premier inn provided seamless and easy booking and checking in at 6am. No fuss or bother and no requirement to book online or ring a call centre. Turned up at the desk and I was in the room 10mins after arrival., simple easy and stress free.
The rooms are exactly what you expect. clean and basic. I had to extend my stay and Miriam on the desk dealt with this without any fuss or bother. Philip was cleaning my room while I was extending my stay and the room was clean as far as I could tell. New towels and refill of tea and coffee. If I had any comments, it would be that when you go for breakfast, if you cannot scan the QR code, you have no access to a menu. They should provide a paper menu which you can throw away if you need one. And then when I ordered a full english breakfast, it turns out you have to go to the buffet to collect your items. So is it a menu and full service or is it a help yourself buffet? And please stop asking if I want something else. Overall, for staying near to the airport it is suitable place and I would stop here again if required. I have been before.

Couldn’t ask for more as most of the staff are very helpful and polite. Purna is a superstar! He remembers our preferences when cleaning our room and refilling with amenities which you can’t experience mostly at any hotel. Met Jane too who ensures rooms are well cleaned and checked. Mohammed(if im not mistaken) from front desk is very accommodating and always made sure to greet us everytime we see him at the lobby and I hope the rest of the front desk team can be like him as some of them are just not polite and not accommodating. The only downfall is the smell at corridor which is very bad that you wish the lift is just next to your door so you can’t smell it.

The current climate makes one miserable but that is not the case at this hotel. I stayed there for half a month because of travel restrictions where I witnessed high hygienic standards. The employees cleaned and sanitized properly and they wear protective gear, masks and gloves. Karen and Abdurr helped me almost everyday with information, printing and new keys. I will be back again because of travel restrictions.

We booked into this hotel bringing a good impression on their services provided during our previous stays. It was unfortunate realizing the services has declined significantly from restaurant to room services. We were the only guests in the restaurant at the time we arrived for breakfast. I ordered sunny side up and was given scrambled egg, 2 slices of bread one toasted one cold.
Hand-wash dispenser in the room was almost empty on arrival day. Requested for tea bags, milk and sugar during our last day and was given one week supply.
Service during dinner was good. The lady who attended to us was friendly and professional.

The hotel is very hygienic, sanitized, they wear face masks, they just make you feel safe especially in these scary times of the pandemic.
And as for the staff, they showed a high degree of professionalism. I was assisted by Karen, Arun and Mariam at the front desk, all who showed high standards of professionalism.
Would definitely visit again.

Perfect for a layover at Abu Dhabi International Airport. It is clearly signposted from the terminal to the entrance of the hotel, and they were very accommodating for me and my friend seeing as we arrived at 08.00 and needed to leave at 21.00 for our next flight. Quick and easy for a long stop over, thanks guys :)

Very convenient transit hotel attached to Terminal 1 and 3. No need to go out of the terminal. After passport control, take the skypark to the hotel. It is just 5 minutes’ walk. Great hotel to stay in for long layovers at Abu Dhabi. The rooms of the hotel are quite spacious and clean. The room has a TV, coffee maker and a mini fridge. It also has your normal toiletries. However, there is no toothbrush or toothpaste. You can buy it from the nearby store. The hotel also have Bar/Restaurant and a coffee shop. The food and alcohol can be a little expensive. However, the prices are quite decent considering that it is mainly a transit hotel catering to travelers with long layovers at Abu Dhabi. The hotel also offer free Wi-Fi to their guests in the rooms and all locations within the hotel. Overall, my stay at the hotel was quite pleasant. I can definitely recommend it to anyone as it’s a good clean hotel with good customer service.

The Premier Inn promotes itself as the place to "get a good nights sleep" and it is certainly that! Just a 5 to10 minute walk via the air conditioned Skypark walkway from Terminals 1 or 3. Our spacious room was very clean, comfortable bed with good bed linen, ensuite bathroom with shower over the bath and wall mounted soap containers over bath and basin. Very large bath towels were fresh and well Laundered. Refrigerator, complimentary bottled drinking water and tea and coffee making facilities as well as a desk, television, small table and divan made for a very comfortable 3 day stay before our next flight. As we arrived early morning our thanks and appreciation to Abdur Rahman for his very pleasant, courteous and efficient customer service in organising an early checkin. Also for the complimentary drinks and explanation of the hotel services! The rooftop hot pool and swimming pool are clean and to be enjoyed! Great views across to the airport also. A free shuttle service can take you to Ferrari World, Warners Brothers, Yas Mall or the great Mosque. Could not go past this hotel for location, cleanliness or comfort!

Dear Madhat, To go to the Premier Inn Airport Hotel in Abu Dhabi, you have to pass customs. But people from most European nationalities don't need a visa for a short stay, so also no transit visa. A valid passport is enough. Kind regards, enjoy your stay!
