Leave the Airpor
Leave the Airport on the Airport Road (E33), following the signs for Abu Dhabi. Once driving on the Airport Road follow the signs for Al Maqtaa Bridge. After you have passed by Al Maqtaa Bridge you will see the iconic Sheikh Zayed Mosque on your left.
You will now be on Airport Road, continue along for 2km until you reach a set of traffic lights (a park will be on your left hand side). Continue straight passing an ADNOC petrol station on your right, and a Carrefour supermarket on your left side. When driving down the bridge take the first exit to the right (31st Street).
The Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi is at your left side opposite of Bin Hamoodah Car Showroom. Driving on 31st Street take the first exit left to enter the Hotel.
When driving from Dubai, pass the disc shaped Aldar Headquarters building and follow directions for the new Sheikh Zayed Bridge. After crossing it, take the second right exit to East Road (Muroor Road), which will bring you to the 31st Street. Cross the first traffic junction & Muroor Road to get to the second half of the 31st Street where the Hotel is located at the far right hand and of the street opposite Bin Hamoodah Car Showroom.
