Abu Dhabi Hotels
Cheap hotels in Abu Dhabi are not easy to come by – even the 2- and 3-star options are not that wallet-friendly. However, the quality tends to be high, and many of the luxury options offer discounts for tourists on weekends, as well as during the hot summer months (low season).

Luxury (over Dhs2,000)
Moderate (Dhs1500 to Dhs2000)
