Business travellers to Dubai are starting to favour AirBnB properties over hotel stays, with occupancy rates averaging 75 to 85 per cent.

That's according to Anna Skigin, CEO of Frank Porter, which manages AirBnB apartments in Dubai.

With approximately 5,000 units listed, Anna told ARN News that they offer more than just a hotel room.
