      I haven't heard noise construction from this building before. I've been inside and they have such delicious pastries/scones with afternoon tea. You can see the whole view from the building.

      What;s the construction noise like there? In Qatar it is hard to sleep - you wake up sometimes to the sound of a jack hammer so loud it is as if it is in your bedroom. For some reason they start work at about 3.00 am in the morning.

      It is a 7 star hotel. Fairly expensive. Unlike other hotels in Dubai, they charge 250 Dhs. (US$ 68) from Dubai residents to enter in. However, this will be deducted when you order some thing inside. This may be to discourage people visiting the hotel just to see it.  I have been there only one time for a seminar.

      Yes, these towers are not very inportant buildings. However their location makes them visible from far and creates an impressive view across the creek.

      The top photo is the "twin towers" in Deira althouh they are not considered important building because of size but the view to them over the creek is special.
