The first ever 25hours Hotel in the Middle East has opened, overlooking the stunning Museum of the Future and just a stone’s throw away from Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Relaxed and fun, guests at 25hours Hotel One Central experience a modern interpretation of ancient Bedouin traditions.
The 434 rooms and suites blend nomadic and contemporary design, masterminded by world-renowned interior design firm, Woods Bagot.
Each features quirky design elements such as hammocks, double rainfall showers, roll-top baths, Schindelhauer bicycles, analogue telephones, UE Boom Bluetooth speakers and much more.
Room themes include the Bedouin Room, the Glamping Room, the Farmstay Suite and the extra-large Artist Village Suite.
The jewel in the crown is the Hakawati Suite featuring a unique Sheikh ‘triple-king’ bed and eye-catching views of The Museum of The Future, plus a double bathtub, dancefloor, private bar, private terrace, photo booth and much more. The room interconnects with two additional bedrooms via a secret staircase.
Dining concepts include the Nomad Day Bar, in partnership with Dubai-based Nightjar Coffee Roasters; Tandoor Tina, for playfully combined British and Northern Indian cuisine; the popular Monkey Pool Bar, and the soon-to-open Ernst – a traditional Bavarian biergarten & wirtshaus.
Business travellers will appreciate the fully kitted-out co-working spaces, meeting rooms, event spaces, open pantry and coffee bar at The Gallery on the first floor. The open-plan space features plenty of modern tech, five-metre-high ceilings and huge windows so guests can enjoy the breath-taking views while they work hard – or hardly work.
Other creative spaces include a trade-in desk where guests can exchange their personal items for a night’s stay, a pottery studio, games room and a podcast studio.
For leisure, there’s The Extra Hour spa, a rooftop pool, a ladies’ salon by renowned celebrity hairdresser Wassim Steve, Dubai’s first outdoor mixed-use sauna and an indoor and outdoor gym inspired by the vibes of Venice Beach.
Cycling enthusiasts can use the complimentary Schindelhauer Bikes available from the lobby or in all Artist Village suites.
