A great studio apartment with walkout balcony on the 16th floor, and for less than $100 a night… not to mention overlooking the marina and being in close proximity to some great malls and restaurants. This one could be a great option for couples looking for a romantic stay in the city.

Obviously, there are tons of places to stay in a gargantuan city like Dubai (over 300 on AirBnb). But a lot of places are, well, what can we say? Crummy. And the other extreme is $3000 a night, and you’re probably reading this article because you’re 1) not a sheikh and 2) looking to enjoy your time in an affordable way in Dubai. So at least you have somewhere to start when planning your next trip, with some affordable (but classy) places to stay.
