Although there are lots of 5star luxury hotels in Dubai because of business situation of this City and most of them are in new part of the city "Bur Dubai", in the old part of Dubai the Taj Palace is one the nicest 5star hotels with most of the amenities of a standard 5star hotel.
The staff of the hotel are very polite and helpful and the front desk are friendly but in some cases like changing the rooms and so on are not very helpful. Generally the staff are well educated and do their best to satisfy you.
The breakfast is ok and has lots of option but not very big. However, you will enjoy it.
The hotel has 11 floors and each floor is divided to two eastern and western part. In one part are the normal rooms and in the other part are the hotel-appartments. I stayed in both of them during my stay. The rooms specially the executive ones are very luxe and have all the facilities. The beds are big enough and the bathroom is nice. There are tea coffee maker and 2bottles of complimentary water in each room. There mini bar is ok.
The apartments are nice and very big with 2big rooms and one small room. It has all the facilities of a furnished apartment in the kitchen and you can stay with your family there. It has a nice big balcony and the living rooms is big enough for a relaxing stay. The only problem with the apartments in compare with rooms is that they are a bit old and not renovated recently.
*I do not agree with those reviews that complain the apartments and give low scores to them because of bad smell and these things. I agree that the location of the hotel because of locating in city center is not very nice and but the hotel itself does not deserve those complaints!!!
There are some restaurants in the hotel lobby and in other floors for dining and lunch but you can not find any bar in this hotel and alcoholic drinks are not served in this hotel at all!!
The parking is big and free of charge.
The out door swimming pool, the gym and spa are in 11th floor and very clean and the facilities are complete. You will have relaxing times if you use them specially at nights!!
Located near Al Rigga street in Dubai downtown, The location of Taj Palace specially for business purpose is quite nice. There are chain restaurants within 5min walk from the hotel. The Alqurair shopping mall which is one of the oldest and biggest mall of the region is not so far. There are also some supermarkets around the hotel where you can find everything you may need during the day.
The only big problem with the hotel is that the WiFi in the lobby is not free and you have to pay about 30$ for 24hour internet connection which makes problem when sometimes you may need the connection for some minutes.
For better view and away from the noise of the streets around, I suggest you to book higher floors.
