I booked a tour to look inside. For this dream Hotel, was the Tour like nothing. The Suite looks like 80 years old. For me: I have the biggest respect for this amazing Building and i love it with all my heart, but this Tour is like 1 Cent of 1000 Dollar, sorry.

Had a wonderful stay overall at the Burj. I checked in to celebrate our milestone 20th Wedding Anniversary and staying here was a bucket list item for me having lived in UAE for 20+ years. First the good things - The room was great, duplex suite which was fun with beautiful views of the sea. We really enjoyed the room. The breakfast was great. Pool area was great too. Room service was exceptional and so was the food. All the things that you would expect staying in this really Iconic hotel. A few issues that I found - The arrivals experience was really underwhelming as it was very mechanical with no personalization. Even a standard welcome drink / water was not at hand till we asked for water. For such an iconic place, this arrivals experience where I just sat around and waited for people to attend was disappointing (just to be fair, once someone from reception identified that we were waiting he did try to speed up things). Secondly, in the room we faced technical challenges with the TV not working for a while and a few people going in and out getting it fixed. Usually these are sorted before the guests check in. I have stayed in more than 25+ resorts in the UAE and would I say this was the best stay? Probably not. I would rate a few properties much higher in terms of the service and stay - Atlantis One Royal, Waldorf both RAK and Palm, Anantara Eastern Mangroves, Qasr Al Sarab are stand outs. The experience was good without being great. For me who loves the Buj Al arab story and being part of the growth of this amazing wonderful country that is my second home - the history and the architecture more than compensated.
