The forum is incredibly helpful as always. Having never been to Abu Dhabhi before, I couldn't find if this has already been answered. The airport hotel (within the airport) is pretty expensive, however 'outside' hotels seem to be as low as $40.
We will be arriving from Toronto on Etihad at about 1130AM (in October) and our flight on Jet Airways is not till 1030PM.
Was planning on booking a hotel outside the airport to get some sleep and possibly do some sightseeing. Any suggestions on hotels and/or tours and also any reason why the airport hotel is so much more expensive?
