About Aerotel Abu Dhabi Airport

The Aerotel – Abu Dhabi Airport is a modern 3-star transit hotel inside Abu Dhabi Airport. The hotel has two locations, one inside Terminal 1 and the other inside Terminal 3, though both are true transit hotels, so you must be a traveller in transit with access to either Terminal 1 or 3 to access the hotel rooms.

The rooms here are sleek and comfortable. The hotel’s specific amenities are mostly limited to the hotel rooms, but plenty of additional amenities, like restaurants, bars, and lounges, are available throughout the airport. The Aerotel may provide meal vouchers to the nearby, in-terminal Lounges at Al Reem and Al Dhabi that offer inclusive bars and buffets.


At Terminal 1’s hotel, travellers can choose from 3 types of rooms: a Solo Room (a single bed and shared bathroom), a Double Plus Room (2 single beds and private bathroom, sleep up to 2 people), or a Double Squared Room (2 double beds and private bathroom, sleeps up to 4 people). All rooms are also equipped with free WiFi, a desk and chair, and wake-up call service. Double rooms also have a flat-screen TV, free coffee and tea, and pillow options.

The hotel in Terminal 3 is less traditional, with only 1 type of room: the Double Lite Room. This compact room fits up to 2 travellers in 1-person bunk beds. Each room has free WiFi, various pillows, and wake-up call service. Bathrooms are not available here, but airport bathrooms and showers are located nearby. (These rooms are only available between 9:00 AM – 9:00PM, likely because few or no flights arrive to or depart from Terminal 3 during the night.)
