“Nice One!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was my first experience of staying here in Taj Palace Hotel. The facilities from room service to the food items were all nice. I had a great time here with my friends. What i loved the most is its beautiful rooms, fully furnished and decorated more than anyone expects. Apart from rooms, all other things out there were satisfactory but they still need some improvements as well in their service and maintenance. The service staff was also very friendly, polite and courteous. The room where we stayed was large enough to accommodate 4 to 6 people easily. Interestingly, this hotel is included in the list of some of those hotels which do not have bar, so here you can live and enjoy with your family easily. The location of this hotel is although in an older district of Dubai but still it takes a few minutes’ drive from here to reach the well-known places there in Dubai. A shopping street and a metro station are also nearby the hotel. The food quality at the restaurant was appreciable and the taste was excellent. We had a very good breakfast and especially the coffee i had there was excellent. One big drawback of the hotel is that as it is surrounded by residential flats so it does not offer any good view from the room’s windows. In a nut shell, the hotel is satisfactory enough to be stayed at for few days. I would like to rate it 7 out of 10.

The property is located in a central location, but surrounded by residental flats all across. a major drawback, since it does not offer any view from the room.
at the same time the advantage is that the palce is central, near to airport, the rooms are nice, as i was in the club room, very spacious as always Taj rooms are.

Food quality- personally i did'nt like, a small but a compact Gym and a nice rooftop pool.

all in all good taj property but what was missing was the warmth in the service, difficult to commnet on reasons.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, but been to Dubai many times before staying at other hotels. Never expected this hotel to be of the standards it is. If it was not for Miss Sayyed, I doubt I would have booked again. She takes the pain out of booking, always very accomadating.

Being with small children they enjoyed the pool facilities and the pool side staff made it that bit extra special. Thanks Umesh Kumar and your fellow crew for going that extra step in welcoming us.

Its in a good location with plenty of shop options and with a more local feel to it than one of a tourist area.

Wi-fi is not available for free considering it`s 2013 but its not big deal, as I brought a local sim card and used that for data.

Room Tip: Twin executive rooms come with two massive beds which helps when with children!

Me and my friends spend a great time at the hotel. The hotel was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and nice. The breakfast was good. The swimming pool was nice. We did not try the Spa. I recommended the hotel for family cause it's one of the hotels that don't have bar in it.

I stayed here in January on my way back from Asia and what an horrible stay. This place is not a 5 star. The receptionist was rude and no direction offered and facilities details. The room is outdated and extremely dirty. Pubic hair around bath. Wall paper coming out the wall. Balcony and chairs very dirty. Horrible place. Not up to taj standard.

Hotel was so so....breakfast not upto the mark. Check in and check out was ok but property itself has no view, no great neighbourhood. It is more like a 3.5 star hotel . It is close to the city centre mall and to the Al Riga metro station. But the hotel does not give you a international feel.

Room Tip: Rooms are large but the hotel is not value for money.
