10 AM is not very late in Abu Dhabi. Here many shops are open for 24 hrs.

I think Sahara Apartment No. 4 is near TCA Juma Al Majid, which is inside the city and close to Abu Dhabi Mall.

Abu Dhabi is very safe for women. Even you can see single ladies roaming around at 2 am on the road.

You can easily get a taxi there from Airport basement. It will cost you around AED. 60. Bus service is available but frequency is less.

We arrived in the airport around the same time & lots of taxis were available from the airport basement. Very safe and hassle free. Top tip - If anyone approaches you inside the airport buiding and offers you a taxi decline, always take the taxi from the official taxi rank.

May be interested in my Abu Dhabi trip report and photographs as well:-

Is it too late for a woman traveling alone? No. 10pm is not considered late in AD and the streets are often busy at that time. You should take sensible precautions if walking alone (e.g. Do not accept lifts from strangers, etc) but generally speaking all visitors can feel safe at any time of day or night.

Is going in the street in jeans OK? Totally acceptable. There are other suggestions under "What to wear" in the top questions to the top right of this page.

What is the most appropriate transportation mean in this hour? Taxi. Exit turning left as you come out past baggage claim and take the lift down to LG to the taxi rank. All destinations on AD island are 70 Dirhams fixed price. Best not go by the meter in case you get stuck in a traffic jam and end up paying more.
