Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It’s a must do whilst in Dubai. An incredible feat of engineering but it’s the views that you’re here for and they are something else! Even the lift up is an experience you won’t forget. Absolutely brilliant.

    A spectacular building with incredible views. It’s a short and sweet experience but well worth it. The journey up in the lift certainly gives you a sense of just how high up you’re heading! The top of the building has amazing views and of course the highlight is the glass walkway, not for the faint of heart but fantastic fun. Very impressive building and highly recommended.

    My husband booked this hotel as a birthday gift. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The terrace with the infinity pool is very special, and the staff is very friendly. We had a small welcome surprise waiting in the suite. All suites have two levels, the bathroom includes a bathtub with whirlpool function and spacious shower, all rooms in the suite have most comfortable chairs and sofas. Breakfast is an experience on its own, lovely live music played on a harp by a very talented lady. I can recommend wholeheartedly.

    Al Seef is very instagrammable spot in every corner. Very beautiful and I love the ambiance. A combination of old-and-new Dubai in Heritage District. This area is very clean enough. And so many restaurant and souvenir shops here.

    Do not forget about a Starbucks shop in the part of oldest Dubai.

    Great experience at level 152. Really enjoyed the views and the lounges were excellent. Drinks and snack included
    Was a little misty due to heat but we could still see so much of Dubai and would go back again.
    We were there from 5pm so saw the start of sunset which was beautiful

    Pier 7 is situated at marina bay on the 7th floor . The restaurant has a very good decor and faces the marina bay. The food is outstanding and cannot be missed when you are at marina bay
    This restaurant has to be on your to do list when in Dubai at marina bay

    The crown jewel of the Dubai Marina, probably the wealthiest place in the entire city. You will see many many supercars and 6-star hotels here. The beach itself is nice and wide but gets very busy, especially at night. Lots of wildly overpriced restaurants, which is to be expected from this area. Good transport connections from the tram, and a safe place even at night.

    Great for long walks/runs and bike rides. The Careem bike station is literally around every corner. We spent an evening cycling from Safa park to Meydan, great fun for a group of friends or active family and costs barely anything. One of my favorites in Dubia

    We traveled through it daily by metro and we saw it at night from the sky Observatory and by day from Burj.
    Really impressive, so many cars using it daily and apparently in a rather efficient manner. By night it's lit and really looks stunning.

    Walked along Al Musallah street and entered AL Bastakia Quarter also known as Al-Fahidi historical neighbourhood which is the ancestral home of the ruling family of Dubai now converted and preserved as a historical museum showpiece of Dubai.
    Bastakia derives its name from the South Iran town of Bastak and consists of restored mud and stone houses , squares and narrow alley's as it existed in the 1890's when Dubai was a tiny pearl diving centre of World trade.
    The "Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum centre for cultural understanding " which was the former ancestral home of the ruling Maktoum family of Dubai is now a rebuilt conserved museum that opened in 1998 and conducts local guided walking tours in Bastakia quarter educating tourists on the culture and customs of the U.A.E.Strolled along the narrow alleyway's entering a traditionally restored and historically preserved Emirati house.Visited the coin and philately museum and also sat in a traditional Emirati tent.From Bastakia Enclave walked to AL FAHIDI FORT now DUBAI MUSEUM and originally built in 1799 .This Fort situated on Al Fahidi street in the Bur Dubai locality is the oldest existing building in Dubai whose walls were made of coral and shell rubble from the sea and same cemented with lime.A visit to Bastakia enclave is mandatory to understand the historical development of Dubai.
