Went to visit Abu Dhabi in June 2012 and stayed at the Al Manzel Hotel Apartments. I actually stayed in the apartment area of the establishment. It was very spacious for a 1 bedroom. It had two bthrooms. One was a full bathroom and the other was a bath with a shower. There was room service like the other guests in the hotel section. The decor of the apartment was very clean lines and modern. The colors were muted greys, browns, off whites. It was very soothing and nice. The lobby was not extravagant but nice, clean and the staff was ALWAYS couteous! The greeted you each time you arrived and left.
They always had fresh coffee (Arabic) not American. It is something that everyone should try if you're visiting.
The room was always cleaned and the little kitchenette was cleaned as well. It was quite comfortable and quiet.
The location of the hotel is about a 1/2 mile from the Abu Dhabi mall. It is located in the downtown area where there was a local pharmacy, grocery store and other stores within walking distance.
In Abu Dhabi you can order from any restaurant in town including "fast food" restaurants and have it delivered to you! That surprised me to no end.
There was a lot of road construction in the area so we had to be careful crossing the streets. Abu Dhabi is a very busy city and in transition with all of the new buildings that are going up. They have some very beautiful architecture.
Beware of the heat! When my plane arrived at 7:30pm Abu Dhabi the temperature was about 110 degrees.
I was very aware of their customs and always dressed appropriately.
There were other more expensive hotels along the water and next time I'll try one of them but this one was close to lots of things. The area itself is not the prettiest but I never felt threatened at all.
