    I entered along with my siblings for free with my uncle who works as a tour guide. We had gone during summer and I feel that the view would have looked better during the winter when everything won't l...  more »

    We weren't on the city bus tour, so we had to pay the full price for the ticket to the top (80 AED). With the ticket you are given a voucher for food and/or drinks that is worth 50 AED, so the price i...  more »

    views, allowing to get into account the vastness of the city, and his situation in a desert area, its proximity to the sea. Well worth the climb!

    Nice location, with an overall view. It has an entrance fee, but if you order something in the bar on top, you get 50 Dirham back. I think it was 80 Dirham entrance fee...so all in all no bad deal. You can see over the whole city from this spot, even the desert where the city ends and nothing seems to flourish in this bald width. ;) But really a place worth to visit.

    Breathtaking view from the Observation deck of the Jumeirah at Etihad towers in Abu Dhabi. For the hotel residents the entrance is free but there is the option for the visitors to visit the observation deck 300 at the towers (70th floor) and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and the great view of the city.

    Beautiful panorama and tasty drinks! But you can't see the sunset between Oct and March, they should keep open 1 hour more

    I live in Abu Dhabi and had guests from overseas. After work I took them up to Observation Deck 300 to see view and have something to eat and drink. We arrived at 5.15pm. Included in the entry is a 50 AED food voucher for each person. First we walked around checking out the views and taking photos. One of the food service staff told us that if we wanted to order food or drinks we had to do it now as they were closing. We sat down and looked over the menu and ordered a drink and the waitress was saying to us if we want food we had to order now (time 5.50pm). We weren't impressed with the rush so we took some food away and left. We took away two sandwiches, which were dry and tough. Never again will I take guests up there. Visited August 2015.

Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.
