The Burj Al Arab is supposed to be the most expensive hotel in the world. When I went there I told the guard that I was in Dubai for a travel conference and that we were supposed to get a tour for free. He made some phone calls and I was allowed to enter without paying.
Typically, you will need to consume anything at the hotel bar if you want to visit.
Anyhow, it's not that expensive inside even if you grab dinner. The view is fantastic when you go up the elevator and the hotel itself is of course luxurious.

Go to the Burj al Arab during the day, so you can enjoy the view. If you just want to see it from the outside, you can go at night, the color of the hotel changes which is quite cool.

Address:
Jumeirah Beach,
Dubai

Price:
Moderate for tea or coffee (maybe $5), but staying at the hotel is super expensive

Opening Hours:
24/7 but they won't let you in late night if you are just visiting as a tourist.

How to get there:
take a cab. Taxis are very cheap in Dubai
