The 25 Hours Hotel group is set to open a new property in Dubai in December, marking its first hotel outside of Europe.

25 Hours Hotel One Central will be located adjacent to the Dubai World Trade Centre, and overlook both the Emirates Towers and The Museum of the Future.

It will feature 434 rooms and suites, and interior design firm Woods Bagot has drawn inspiration for the decor from the region, “combining the ancient traditions of the Bedouins with a progressive, forward-thinking design and a nod to the future”.

The hotel will also feature a co-working space, a paint and pottery studio, a podcast recording room and record decks.

The Dubai property has partnered with MINI to allow guests to take a free test drive to explore the city, or alternatively guests can borrow the hotel’s Schindelhauer e-bikes free-of-charge. Other leisure facilities include a spa and a mixed-use rooftop sauna.

Dining facilities will include traditional Bavarian beer garden Ernst, Northern Indian cuisine with a British twist and Tandoor Tina, the café Nomad Day Bar by Dubai-based coffee roasters Nightjar, and Berlin import Monkey Bar.

There will also be multiple meeting and event spaces with modern technology, five-metre-high ceilings and large windows.

Christoph Hoffman, CEO of the group, said:

“25hours Hotel One Central is the most exotic 25hours project I have experienced so far. From the beginning of this adventure our aim was to create a new Dubai experience of hospitality.

“Actually we want it to become the living room, the party cellar, the speak easy, the romantic hide-a-way for lovers as well as the place for relaxed and creative business meetings, inspirational various spaces, a fun rooftop for visionary thoughts and views. A new home and playground for the local community and of course travelers from all over the world.”

This comes after last month’s opening of a property in Florence, located in the Santa Maria Novella district.

25 Hours Hotels was founded in 2005 and currently has 12 properties in nine cities including Berlin, Paris, Zurich and Vienna. Further hotels are planned for Copenhagen, Sydney and Melbourne.  The 25 hours Hotel Company formed a strategic alliance with Accor in 2016, and Accor now has a 50 percent stake.
