Default Abu Dhabi - Looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment...

Hi all,

Just arrived in Abu Dhabi and am looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment...... where to start? If anyone has any recommendations or agents they have used, please let me know. Will be here for the next two years to start with, so looking long term. Ideally for something nice and central.

Please help, any suggestions welcome as I hear it is very hard to find.....

The housing will just be for one female, if that makes a difference for location or type of apartment.

try the Gulf News classifieds, do you have a very healthy allowance? I heard yesterday that 1 beds are now going for as much as 180k!!! and that's if you can get your hands on one, no availability.
