6 Hotels Within Walking Distance of Burj Khalifa

Known for extravagance, it’s no surprise that the tallest building in the world is located in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The Burj Khalifa stands at an impressive 828 meters tall and is a must-see when visiting Dubai. It can be seen from as far as 90 kilometers away in good weather, and whether you stand below it and watch its LED shows along with the dancing waters of The Dubai Fountain or go all the way up to the viewing decks on the 148th and 125th floors, it’s a sight not to be missed.

With The Armani Hotel Dubai located in the Burj itself, it could also be a great accommodation option while visiting Dubai. However, if you just want the view there’s plenty of other accommodation options nearby. Staying within walking distance of the Burj Khalifa also allows you to be close-by other well-known sights like The Dubai Mall, The Dubai Fountain and The Dubai Opera House.
