So if you are among the folks on the hunt for cheap rental options, consider our guide to most affordable studio unit renting localities in Dubai. We guarantee you’ll get home in no time.
The most affordable locality for renting studio units in Dubai in February 2017 was the suburban International City. Situated in the north-western strip of the emirate, International City offered studio units for as little as AED 28,000. However, the average rental cost for the smallest of unit types was AED 33,000 in the outgoing month. International City is a well-built community that is highly popular with bargain hunters. Ample availability of grocery stores, marts, restaurants and green areas make it a pleasant community to reside in. Although it’s a bit far away from the city centre, commuting is easy through RTA bus routes. All in all, the facilities and low cost of renting make it highly popular with both bachelors and families alike.
P.S The bargain paradise — the amazing Dragon Mall – is at a walking distance from International City.
