  • If you want to do is something good, the reserved himself a table at the Burj al Arab Al Iwan restaurant for dinner. But please note, this is not for little money to get. You should set more than 200 EUR for 2 people.

  • Was a nice experience to see such a luxury hotel. Good for sightseeing. We have a company event here, however the catering was not as good as expected. But all and all it was a nice experience. The staff is super professional and helpful.
  • Simply stated, it's one of the best hotels in the world. The rooms are exquisite. You have two stories to explore with windows that run from the floor to the ceiling. It's the ultimate in luxury. It tends to be in the opulent side, so prepare for gold covering everything in the room. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz
  • Amazing atmosphere. The hotel is perfect from inside and out. With perfect restaurant and view... extravagance at its best! Super luxurious, super fancy 7 star hotel... and it’s structure with exotic attraction...
  • Beautiful property with amazing rooms. The food at the two restaurants we went to was outstanding, and the service was phenomenal at both. Staff are genuinely kind and helpful in the restaurants as well as the helpful butlers stationed on each floor. The water fountains and aquariums in the lobby are beautiful to watch. Stay for a while at the giant center water extravaganza next to the escalators and watch the show!
