Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.

  • Very nice building, also known as the Coin Building of Abu Dhabi. It'll be to your left when you are going to the airport from the city. I didn't get a chance to enter the building though.  more »
  • For a business it is a very unusual shaped building but it is the HQ of one of the biggest construction companies in United Arab Emirates.  more »
  • An amazing building that can be easily viewed from the road when driving from Dubai into Abu Dhabi. Amazing architecture & building. Shame it isn't more accessible to visit.  more »

  • ALDAR HQ is one of the amazing structures of the world termed as coin building!
  • Modern building, and landmark in AD. Easily accessible from the highway.
  • Parking is a issue apparently even for guests
  • Private developer established their name. Iconic structures are their contribution.
  • Great state of the art, the free vallet parking service is outstanding. Maps route is not accurate
