This hotel is called the Burj Al Arab and it boats being the world's first and only 7 star hotel since it opened in 1999. The people who created never even claimed that themselves, this is just the reputation it has been given from journalists and the people fortunate enough to stay there over the course of the past 15 years. It is the world's fourth tallest hotel although almost 40% of it is non-occupiable space. The hotel is on its own island which is accessible by its own bridge. The hotel sits on an island in the sea and the design is intended to mimic that of a ship.
It's one of the few places in the world that I would love to visit but sadly probably never will. At almost $1,000 per night to stay in cheapest suite it is one of the most expensive hotels in the world. Some of the hotel rooms fetch as much as $15,000 per night with the most expensive being the royal suite which costs $28,000 per night. If you look at these pictures you will see why it is so expensive.
