These are the 5 Most Expensive Hotels in the World. Who doesn’t love a good hotel room? They’re always a fun getaway from the boring old bedrooms that most of us have. But some rooms are more expensive than others, and these 5 may well require you to save money for a few decades before you can actually afford them.
The Burj Al Arab in Dubai
Dubai might be right in the middle of the desert, but for a mere $12,000, you can feel like you’re the king of the world. The rooms at the Burj Al Arab are large and luxurious, but it’s not the rooms you’re really paying for. It’s the amenities. Your price includes the option to ride around in a Rolls Royce or a helicopter, access to a private beach and free access to a local amusement park. Who cares if it’s in the desert? You’ll feel like you’re in paradise! Your wallet, however, might feel a little empty afterward.
