Absolutely Beautiful Hotelfrom Lizzie869
Will have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
Fantastic Hotel. I will use againfrom WeeMinx
Absolutely everything a 5 star hotel should be.
Great hotelfrom J-CDup
Excellent Hotelfrom KingDoody
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.
Great Hotel, Very Good Rooms, Midtown locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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.
Small supermarkets are close-by as well as Shopping Malls and the Old Souk.
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.
I love the Turkish restaurant. The Indian seems great also but I've never been there. There's also a Japanese restaurant.
Check In is slow because they've got a lot of Arabian Gulf guests at the hotel.
Very good for medium budgets. I find it low relative to other 5 star hotels in Dubai.
Not great for business travellersfrom A frequent and discerning traveller
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).
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 hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 starfrom mrahat
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.
