Stayed there in summer 2015. Wifi speed was slow. Constant noise from people and cars on a street and can hear talk from neighbour room. Good place to stay, if you need to save money. Despite convenient location, won't come there again.

Staying at Rainbow Apartments in the centre of Abu Dhabi for a few months has been great. Staff are very willing to help with a smile and the place is clean. While the room furniture is somewhat quaint, and the TV's old style the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen adequate. It is 'backside' (as the locals say) of...

Location isn't bad. Lot of shops and restaurants in the surroundings. The espresso in the hotel cafeteria was very good. The first impression after check-in was the parade of room cleaning equipment in the corridor. In the room it was freezing cold (but not because of the huge, dominant frigde right beside the bed). The bathroom was clean, but that's...
