Grand Continental Flamingo Hotel Abu Dhabi

Some cities in the world, particularly gems of the United Arab Emirates such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi, could do well to remember that by designing the majority of their infrastructure around the luxury market, they scare off potential visitors who are working to a smaller budget.

Luckily, some sense of the normal traveller has remained in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. While much of the region is indeed dedicated to luxury accommodation, a little time and thought has been spared for those who don’t have money to burn – and a decent mid-range market has be continued.

However, thankfully, some hotels are perfectly suitable for the budget traveller; the type of which the Grand Continental Flamingo Hotel Abu Dhabi is a wonderful example.
