WHERE TO STAY IN ABU DHABI: Best areas and hotels

City center, the cheapest option where to stay in Abu Dhabi

Downtown Abu Dhabi offers a wide variety of accommodation and you will find some great deals. It is generally the cheapest area. Despite being the center of the city, the places of interest are not very close. You will have to move around the city by rental car, taxis... Not only because of the differences themselves, but also because of the heat.

I recommend you rent a car. It is a very comfortable option. You can find car rental offers in Abu Dhabi from this link.

You can find 4-star hotels for 50 euros/night in room. double.
