Tinseltown Dubai has always had a reputation as a playground of the well-heeled, offering an infrastructure of superlative venues and facilities to match. But as the city’s appeal and popularity has dramatically increased, resonating even on a global level, the local hospitality scene is gradually accommodating a more budget-conscious demographic of travellers as well. London-based hospitality group Millennium Hotels anticipates this broader focus on tourism and has launched the first property in the Middle East of its newest hotel brand, called M Studio, in Dubai‘s Deira neighbourhood. The three-star hotel brand boasts 223 guest rooms and 100 serviced apartments, all designed in a fresh contemporary look by acclaimed Milan-based architect Piero Lissoni.  The newly opened M Studio Arabian Plaza targets both leisure and business travellers with design-led settings and and all the amenities required by today’s savvy traveller.

The guest rooms come with a comfy king-size bed, a bathroom with rain shower, and all the modern technology you’d expect it to have, including high-speed internet access, and ports and hubs for guests to stream content through LED televisions from your own mobile phones and laptops. additionally, housekeeping and ‘Do Not Disturb’ buttons are also installed in the rooms, offering a modern alternative away from the conventional door hangers. The premises, including the guest rooms, apartments and public spaces, have been furnished with a wide variety of contemporary Billiani furniture. Need to go places around town? No worries, Studio M Arabian Plaza is conveniently situated right next to Al Qiyadah Station of Dubai Metro‘s Green Line and the E11 motorway that runs along the entire coastline, and through the city, all the way to the neighbouring tinseltown of Abu Dhabi. Location: M Studio Arabian Plaza, Al Ittihad Road (Deira).
