“Okay stay, not enamored”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Old property and not so expensive.The rooms are really large and very clean.
The best part of the hotel is the pool. On the 11th floor terrace, the pool is of decent size and has a great view of the city and planes moving around, without any noise pollution. The staff are courteous and remember you the next day. The changing rooms have sauna and steam to use. The pool is not crowded, especially in the mornings. It is very clean with ample sunlight. Must use daily.

But then it goes downhill from there. The list is long: no free wi-fi (even the Dubai Mall has free wi fi), the room upholstery needs a change, the mattress sags. The breakfast is just average with limited options and just few changes over the next day. Definitely not 5* material. The shampoo, body wash, etc are not automatically renewed the next day.

Would I stay again - can't say. Was not enamored this time.

Room Tip: The odd numbered rooms have view of drying laundry in balconies of the building across. Can't sa...

It feels right to mention on the first place that the rooms are really big in this hotel.
It is not the kind of hotel you could call fabulous or astonishing, but it gives you everything you need practically. And clean it is, no doubts! Good service. Not very expensive. Though the breakfast is average. It is not a place where you go to get full pleasure, to relax and etceteras, but if you visit for business, maybe still with family, you need to mix holidays with business (as it often happens with Dubai visitors), if you are not after luxury, then this is right place for you.

Close enough to the airport for a stop over. (Great views of planes from the pool area - without the noise!)

Rooms are clean and large

The pool offers pretty good views, good gym and sauna area. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Would stay again.

Excellent large rooms with all necessary kit. Can't comment on the restaurants as we didn't eat in them, but the egg chef arrangements at breakfast were amateur. It's not hard to do this quickly and avoid queues, but the Taj Palace failed on both counts.
Wifi policy appalling. If you charge over 200 bucks a room, you do not do rip off wifi - you include it in the price. The cafe round the corner does better. This shows no respect for customers at all. I will boycott on my next trip as a result, as there is always a choice and customer respect matters.
The hotel also needs to sharpen up it taxi summoning - chaotic.

We went with our family including a 2 year old & my in laws to Dubai in October 2012. We were there for a week & decided to spend 2 nights at the apartment at the Taj Palace Dubai....It was a fabulous experience with 2 bedrooms + 1 bedroom for the nanny. N fully equipped kitchen which made it so easy with a child. Luxury to the fullest:)
Also had lunch at the Indian restaurant which was fabulous......Superb service. Particularly was impressed by the check in counter for the kids....Very cute thought!
Just go there n enjoy the luxury. The roof top swimming pool is also very good!

I have recently stayed this hotel and have done so over the last five years, and must point out renovation is needed, the rooms are not to the standard they claim to be, dirty and old. I would consider very hard to go back again.
