We had the best time when we stayed at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and polite. The staff at reception were always very cheerful and did everything they could do to make sure we had a pleasant stay. I would recommend this hotel as it's definitely worth your money. We always tell people this hotel is the best. We have had a few of our relatives gone to Dubai and stayed at Taj palace as we keep going on about it. All in all next time we go to Dubai we will definitely stay there again.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Taj Palace Hotel Dubai

Absolutely Beautiful Hotel

from Lizzie869
We stayed here on our way back from the UK to Perth. I was truely delighted in the clean, spacious room, location & staff were very friendly. Breakfast served at a more reasonable time, for us to use it as Brunch as the variety is there to satisfy anyone's tastes.
Will have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Fantastic Hotel. I will use again

from WeeMinx
I stayed at the Taj Palace twice during September en route to and coming back from China. It is a truly fabulous hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable, the staff are friendly, the restaurants are lovely and it is within easy transfer to the airport.

Absolutely everything a 5 star hotel should be.

Great hotel

from J-CDup
Excellent service. just what a 5 star should be.

Excellent Hotel

from KingDoody
We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. We booked two standard rooms which were superb quality, very clean, loads of space and very well furnished.
Staff were attentive and professional in all respects.
Nice pool on the roof (cooled in the summer)
Loaction was good in the old centre of Deira, but if you're looking for beaches they are a 15 minute taxi ride away (taxis are very cheap)
Hotel has an excellent Indian restaurant but dishes are more spicey than similar dishes in the UK so be careful.
Highly recommended.

Great Hotel, Very Good Rooms, Midtown location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms:
Spacious, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom.
Good for families (I've stayed here twice with my family in a 2-bedroom suite that included a maid's room. Balconies are spacious with tables & chairs and are connected to both bedrooms.
Location:
Small supermarkets are close-by as well as Shopping Malls and the Old Souk.
View:
You'd see buildings all around you from the balconies. Yet, sunshine is not blocked so a lot of sunlight will enlight the suite/room.
Restaurants:
I love the Turkish restaurant. The Indian seems great also but I've never been there. There's also a Japanese restaurant.
Check In:
Check In is slow because they've got a lot of Arabian Gulf guests at the hotel.
Rates:
Very good for medium budgets. I find it low relative to other 5 star hotels in Dubai.

Not great for business travellers

from A frequent and discerning traveller
We chose this hotel because it was a relatively less expensive option than other hotels in Dubai. The staff were accommodating and nice, and the rooms are large and pleasant. The hotel is relatively central, meaning that it is a quick journey to nearby services, shopping malls, etc.

However, we had chosen it on the basis that it advertised internet access. One huge drawback is that there is no internet access in the rooms. There is also no wireless connection in the hotel. There are two computers in the business center which offer high speed internet access.

Also, the hotel is "dry" (no alcohol is sold on the premises, including their excellent Indian restaurant).
Management Response from HotelManagerDubai
Since May of 2006 the Taj Palace has full wireless Internet Access in most areas of the hotel and in all rooms.

Additionally, we still feature the old dial up connectivity as some of our guests look at a lower rate as compared to wireless.

In case our guest experience difficulties with internet connectivity I do invite them to contact me or our Front Office Manager directly.

Thank You for sharing your valued feedback with us.

A very nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have stayed there for 5 days for the last year's new year's eve. The hotel is very luxurious. We have also upgraded (we were two couples) in a superior family suite which was like an apartment. With a spacious living room having two large leather sofas, a big wide screen tv), a beautiful kitchen with all the facilities,two absolutely magnificent huge bedrooms, a maid's room, three bathrooms, and a utilities rooms with laundry and etc!!!!!!. The staff was very kind and helpful during our stay .
The only things that we did not like was the hotel's Italian restaurant (the food was disgusting).
Also keep in mind that alcoholic drinks are not being served in the hotel

Wow! Great Staff and Stunning Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned last night and stayed 5 nights at the Taj and 5 nights in Hilton Jumeirah Beach.

The Taj beat the Hilton by a long shot in terms of customer service. They treated us like royalty. Really enjoyed it very much and thank you to a great bunch of guys at the Taj Palce.

Nice Big rooms and a courteous upgrade to an apartment for a little bit extra - which had everything in it including a washing machine and dryer!!! Swimming pool, jacuzzi and spa are all fit for a king...trust me!

We will be back soon!

Excellent hotel and service

from A TripAdvisor Member
Date: 14th May 2005

We went to Dubai, Taj Palace for 8 nights. It was the most beautiful hotel, with large bedrooms i have stayed out. An average double room looks like a suite. The hotel service was above expectation, their staff were really polite with excellent customer service.

Taj Palace has an Indian restaurant that serves the best Indian food compared to any other place. Even better then UK restuarants.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone

Terrible Service not 5 star more like a 2 star

from mrahat
I stayed at this hotel with my family. I booked a Taj Club Room, which was supposed to have extra facilities. We had a complimentary airport transfer which took the guy at the airport, at least half hour to locate.
when we finally arrived it was about 7:30 AM in the morning as we were on an overnight flight from the UK. There were other people who arrived at the same time, who got their rooms by 10:00 AM. But I had to wait untill 12:00 Noon to get my room and that was after several complaints and talking to the manager. I had 2 children who were very tired and wanted to sleep and the staff had no sympathy for me.
Anyway the service was very poor compared to other 5 star hotel I stayed. I only stayed there for 4 days, then I changed to Shangrila which was a far superior service compared to Taj. The Club room was a waste of time also, they had very little to nothing to offer, some stale sandwiches at about 5:00 PM and one drink. the service is far superior even in the 4 star traders hotel compare to this. Also the indian staff were very rude and unprofessional. I think its about time Taj trained their staff in manners and always pushing for tips, which is very bad, if people get good service tipping is not a problem. But whith bad service to expect a tip its very wrong in my opinion.

Overall I was very dissappointed with Taj Service, I think management is to blame for this kind of service. If you want to stay at Taj, do so at your own risk, I would look elsewhere.

Top Local Tips for Dubai

Visit Hyatt Regency Hotel to Revolving restaurant Before you leave visit this restaurant which gives you fantastic views of Dubai.

Travel If you are not staying at one of the many resorts avoid Deira as it is only handy for the Airport. The Creek area and Bur Dubai are good for any business men visiting Government sites and are not far from Media City / Internet City but if travelling to these two areas the Radisson SAS in Media City is great.

Shopping The best and biggest shopping centre the Mall of Emirates (about 55 darham by taxi). this is the one with skiing resort. Second bset shopping centre is Brjaman (about 20 darham by taxi). Nearle as good and big as Mall of Emirates.
