Travel Blogs from Dubai
We discussed at length about what we should do today for our stop over and coincidentally, my birthday. We were recommended to do a desert safari in the afternoon/evening but we decided against it, for reasons that I can't remember (probably because it was so hot). Instead we decided to retreat to the coolness of Dubai's two biggest shopping …
Very sorry to leave London after our three day stay. Our cab arrived before daylight to take us to Heathrow for our 8.20am flight to Dubai.
We arrived in Dubai at around 8pm to a warm and humid evening, and a traffic jam on the way to our hotel. Although it was late by the time we settled in to our large suite, we dined in the Indian …

The last day in Dubai I wanted to spend it at the beach, and that is what I did. I took one of the room towels and left the hotel to go to the same place as the first day, Jumeirah Beach Residence where I met my Spanish friend Eimen. It felt great to speak Spanish, finally! Sounds bizarre but I never get to speak Spanish on the daily basis and when I do, I really enjoy it. Eimen has been in ...

The Heritage Village is free and none of the participants are expecting any kind of payment for demonstrating their craft or ancient traditions. This evening was, for us, very entertaining although I doubt not in the spirit it was meant!!

TravelPod Member ReviewsTaj Palace Hotel Dubai
We stayed one night in the Taj Palace Hotel en route back to Melbourne from London. It was located close to the airport which was the reason we chose it for our stopover but a little out of the way of the major attractions of Dubai. Having said that, the underground rail was conveniently located down the road. The hotel itself was lovely and our room quite palatial, a change from our small rooms in London and Paris. Service was of a high standard, would highly recommend for a stopover.

I have just returned from a 6-night stay at the Taj Palace with my mother - and I honestly wished I had chosen a different hotel!
Stayed at the Taj for 2 nights on April the 21st. We arrived at the hotel at 12:00 midday with 2 other couples on the same plane. They were given their rooms straight away while my request for a room had to wait until 2:00 am the official check in time. THis inspite of them admitting that they had rooms available but my 'category' was different to others (i.e. I was explained that means I booked cheaper). Anyway I would not have got stuck up with this but the only reason was that my infant son was crying his head off as he did not get any sleep in the overnight flight and the staff instead of showing sympathy was in a mood of arguing with me - not at all what a 5 star service should consist of
Ideal for my honeymoon!!!
Arrived at the hotel (April 2004) and were amazed by the size of the room. Although we had booked a basic double we in actual fact must have ended up 'honeymooning' in a double 'kingsize executive'. Hotel staff were warm and very helpful! Indian themed restaurant in the hotel did the must superb Asian food. My husband and I could not have chosen a more ideal hotel to start of our marriage. I hotel I certainly can't fault!
Yes the Taj has huge rooms and impressive bathrooms but why have an enormous balcony when the view is of an unattractive busy city street? The hotel is centrally located which means it is noisy and there is no view.
Heaven in Dubaï
Excellent hotel with huge rooms, excellent service right in the heart of Dubaï! Staff is very courteous and always quick to answer any question or to address the customer demand. We had a room on the 11th floor not far from the gym and the pool (on the roof like many other hotels in Dubai).
Having stayed in other hotels in Dubai, the Taj Palace exceeded my expectations for an excellent rate (620AED tax and breakfast included).
One of the best hotels I've ever visited! The spa is a bonus, I cannot recommend you too much to give it a try!
Like in the real palace
We've spent 8 most wonderful days in Taj Palace. Hotel is magnificient, (executive, the lowest cathegory they offer) rooms are about 50 sq mt + balcony and very luxury furnished. Staff are polite, helpful discreet and extremly professional. The pool on the rooftop is great, restaurants (4 different types of cuisine) offer top class food and are not too expensive (in Le Meridien Mina Seyahi we paid 2 small sandwiches about 30 € and for that price two can eat normal lunch in Taj Palace and be served as a king). The New Year's Eve 2005 was great as well.
All the best for Taj Palace Dubai. Deeply recommend to everyone!
Staying at the Taj Palace hotel was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it to everyone. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by very friendly and professional staff. We were two families and they easily said they can give us an upgrade into one of their wonderful spacious apartments, we said great and wow what a room it was. we had everything we needed. The kids just loved it. We were in the pool everyday it was a good size. Our room was with breakfast, that was really good also. It was a great buffet with something new everyday.
I cant think of anything about this Hotel that I didnt like. I HIGHLY recommed this hotel to anyone planning on visiting Dubai
I won't stay here again!
The upside is that the location, while not on/near the beach, is fine for shopping; beautiful rooms and comfy beds. My expeirience, however, was awful due to the guests next door blasting their music late into the night - I ended up having to change rooms at midnight because the management said 'since it bothers ME'. The management on staff that night were not sympathtic or friendly. It's a shame that they did not comp my night as I would have given this hotel another try if they had done so or comped my next visit - or at least called me the following week. Big mistake on their part as I spend lots on hotels and resorts in Dubai and Jumeirah beach! There are too many wonderful places to stay in the area without this kind of treatment.
