Pros: The hotel is very close to dubai international airport and is located in the Deira area. Deira is quite croweded and the hotel understandably does not have the landscaped gardens that one expects from a 5-star hotel property. That said, prices are cheaper than the properties in Jumeirah. We were upgraded to a club room which was quite spacious so no complaints on that count. Room cleanliness and service were of the usual high standards.
Cons: We only ate breakfast and one dinner in the hotel. breakfast variety is rather limited. Taj usually has a variety of indian options but breakfast had only a couple of indian options. We opted for the indian set breakfast ordered via room service and instead of a masala dosa, we were served a plan dosa. Not a big deal really but we expected the hotel to deliver what it says on the Menu. The 'Handi' restaurant is extremely disappointing. Our chicken was unevenly cooked. The chef tried to first pass it off as the result of frozen chicken and then the result of different culinary tastes in the middle-east. Neither of these explanations was even remotely convincing. We were looking for great indian food in the Taj and were sorely disappointed.
Overall: Its good value for money but try to eat outside the hotel as F&B is not great.
