Unbelievable building. Can only view from distance. Very impressive though. Would have liked to be able to go inside the building.

The hotel itself is amazing..extremely opulent . My daughter and I had afternoon tea there and whilst it is expensive it is something you probably do just once in a lifetime. We arrived in plenty of time and had the best view over Dubai. Service was of a very high standard immediately on entering the hotel and again in the... More

The experience is definitely worth doing, but it was very busy (19:30pm) and once we were on the 124th viewing floor (there are more than 200 floors) it wasn't that clear where to queue for photos or where to queue to come back down again. As a result we spent about 10 mins on the viewing deck and another 30... More

Once again we treated ourselves to a Champagne High Tea; we went along with a group of friends who were also overwhelmed by the whole experience. None of us could finish the amount of dishes served and it was not for the want of trying. Well worth the £78.00 per person price tag, it was also Mother’s Day and every... More

And so it went on! Way over the... More
