It was surprising to us that we had such a hard time, given that we were staying at a major hotel right downtown – the International Rotana Inn. The hotel was very well located – about a 10 minute walk from the corniche. The hotel had mixed reviews on the internet, but it far exceeded our expectations. The room was very clean, the bathroom was all tile, and the front desk staff was very friendly. At the time this was the cheapest option in Abu Dhabi. We were obviously not on the backpacker path!
