Not far from the airport, Traders is a pretty good value for expensive Abu Dhabi. The rooms are spacious and have all the modern conveniences like satellite tv, dvd player, and broadband internet. The air-con is powerful which is very important!
Breakfast is a mix of international foods to cater to their diverse guests - Asian, European, and even some Middle Eastern choices. It was fun trying something different every morning.
The staff are excellent and go out of their way to make you feel special. Ask them about the private beach and they'll shuttle you over there in a golf buggy.
