    Currently the tallest building in the world and a must see attraction in Dubai. The view is amazing! We paid the more expensive fee to take the express option where you enjoy tea or coffee and a sweet at the top. It was worth it since the line was shorter and more relaxed with less people. The guide at the top was Shirin. She was very helpful and knew a lot about the building plus she pointed out where other famous attractions were when we asked. If you do not like heights beware and if you do enjoy!

    The Dubai Frame was worth visiting especially for picture taking as it had breath taking views. 10/10

    Nice architecture. A little underwhelmed after all the hype, but still a nice visit to the Mahara restaurant.

    Well managed attraction with no troubles on entry or exit. Perfect security.
    The experience of traveling up 125 floors was thrilling and adventurous! The views extraordinary and will never get enough!
    The only negative point would be the photographers who take terrible photos.
    Otherwise all in all, awesome attraction with a lot of other attractions in close vicinity!

    • Pretty cool spot in Dubai, with a different restaurant occupying every floor of Pier 7 - meaning there is something for everyone!

    • We went to the Scene for dinner/drinks one night, and then Cargo one day for drinks (decent happy hour options!)

    • Worth a visit for sure if you are in Dubai and around the marina area

    • Recommend requesting or trying to get a table outside on the balcony area, as the marina views are a dream setting

    Clean, easy access and lots to do. The accelerator in the basement had some fascinating displays and when the Museum of the Future is complete this will be a premier location. The hotel is great even if the restaurants are very high priced.

    It is worth taking a look at this pristine palace. You can’t go in but there is parking and you can stroll up the drive way towards the impressive entrance gates which are topped by horse statues.

    There are normally plenty of peacocks wandering around and an impressive police vehicle on display - it was a police G Wagon on the day I visited.

    This rating came because of two individuals in particular - Andre and Charles (working at the coffee shop in the lobby). They saved the day. A friend of mine was staying at the hotel and we required suggestions of what to do in the area and a nice cup of coffee etc. The persons at the reception, working the night of the 14th were vile. Absolutely vile. So unwelcoming and unhelpful. Were it not for Andre and Charles, we would never have come back. They were friendly and super helpful and made one of the best cups of coffee. THESE are they types of ppl the hotel wants to have front-facing. They deserve a raise. How many other ppl have they kept coming back? It cant just be us. Well done Andre and Charles. Even though it may seem small, you make a HUGE difference.

    The Palladium is an office building in Dubai Media City, located near the BBC and Zee offices. It's not really much of an attraction, unless one is working here.
