“Totally OTT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Extremely OTT for us, but have had this hotel on my wish list for many years. Was great to finally get a peak inside. Not sure I would want to stay there - even for a night. Extortionate prices.... I'd rather have a week in this beautiful resort, than a night in the Burj and go home (if you know what I mean)! Well worth the trip though - to see how the other half live!

“Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Can get a bit busy and there always seems to be a long queue to get a lift back down - when its busy its difficult to get a window spot and have a look but when you do its simply amazing! if you can get a spot to watch the fountains then DO! the are awesome by air as well.

“Great view over Dubai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Dubai's iconic view. Although it's only around halfway up the tower it's ridiculously high and gives a great view over the surrounding city. It's touristy but so is a lot of Dubai. Make sure to book tickets ahead of time and stick around for the water show at sunset. Definitely on the list of must do things for a one day trip to Dubai.

“125 dirham but you only go to the 124 floor!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

This attraction can get crowded so you might want to pick up tickets ahead of time. It was a little disappointing that the observation deck is almost 80 floors below the top but its still something you've got to do.
