      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.
