Dubai has increased sharply the number of three and four hotels in the recent past.
Eissam Kazim, chief executive of DCTCM, said that there is a need of cheaper accommodation in Dubai but not at the altar of low standards. He forecasted that by 2016 an additional 25,000 rooms will be in place and by 2020 Dubai is targeting 160,000 rooms.
Under Dubai Tourism Vision 2020, Dubai plans to welcome 20 million visitors in 2020 compared to 10 million in 2012. This calls for more rooms.
