One of Dubai’s absolute show stopper highlights is the iconic Burj Khalifa – the tallest tower in the world!
Whilst it’s hard not to capture the Burj Khalifa from pretty much anywhere in the city at its towering height of 828 metres, it’s another thing altogether to stay somewhere in Dubai where you can throw open your curtains and admire the Burj Khalifa view from your hotel room.
Whilst staying within the Burj Khalifa itself might be out of budget for many (the exceptionally pricey Armani Hotel Dubai is your only option), there are plenty of equally great – and in our option better – hotels to stay in nearby where you can capture those iconic Burj Khalifa views for an unforgettable Dubai experience.
The Burj Khalifa is situated adjacent to the Dubai Mall in Downtown Dubai. Accordingly, most of our picks are in the immediate Downtown Dubai, Business Bay and Sheikh Zayed Road areas, but we’ve thrown in a beachfront favourite with a Burj backdrop and a value Bur Dubai pick too.
