Amazing place to just wander and take in sights. Numerous wonderful restaurants. We love to go for lunch on weekends. The beautiful glass cabinets of antiquities are worth the trip alone!

The hotel is grand and there is a real opulence to be felt. Luxurious through and through. When it comes to service there is room for improvement and also the feeling of being a guest in this establishment requests some kind of outstanding standards.We asked for afternoon tea and were told it is not sure if they can serve as...

Pretty to look at and have a wonder around but nothing to actually do here (not for normal people anyway!) Had a look around and then headed straight to Marina Mall which is around the corner.

Hotel is beautiful. We went for lunch and it was amazing. We tried to make appointment to tour for my sons birthday. was booked and then told we could not. If you are not staying here but have a meal here you will only see lobby. Was a bit disappointing as we booked a tour 6 weeks early and they... More

I have been to the palace several times and will go again given the opportunity. I went with my friends the first time and the experience was everlasting. We were seated (make sure you make a reservation or you will not get served) and tea began. Sandwiches, cakes, golden coffee and you are treated like royalty. It is expensive but... More

A nice place to hangout to see some good interiors of an old palace now converted to a hotel above star ratings (as they say). Most days they allow general public to visit the hotel without stay except for certain days when there are restrictions due to delegation level meetings etc. Does have some good restaurants too inside where team...

If you are not actually staying at the Emirates Palace, it still is well worth a visit; from the afternoon tea, to a cocktail and cigar at the Havana Bar and a dinner at Hakkasan. Brutally expensive, but you only live once!
