“Family Friendly but..... you are cut off from world”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Stayed in a 2 Bedroom Apartment second time with 2 little children and my wife.
Good Points: The staff is good, hotel is fantastic for families, convenient location and near the Airport, lots of food places and metro near=by,
Bad Points::
No free internet ...the cost is Dhs 33 for 30 minutes
Telephone calls are highly charged, Dhs 11 per minute to UK and Dhs 8 for a local call
Late check out- Dhs 50 per 30 minutes and half day charges at 6 pm
The décor and furniture is aged , probably needs refurbishment, if still needs to be 5 star hotel.
If you don't want to pay high telephone calls, buy a local mobile Sim on Eiisalat network...costs Dhs 75 and come with 15minute International Calls and 25 minute local calls - inclusive, valid for 25 years. Can be easily topped up.
For groceries if you need - Al maya grocery store around the corner.
For internet access- internet cafe- 2 doors from al-Maya store on al-rigga road....Dhs 5 / hour..
I hope the management of Taj palace understands the need of commiunication for its guests as most smart phones and tablets use WiFi. As compared to Kuala Lumpur Hotels where internet and WiFi was free.

The hotel is convenient for the airport, the rooms are of a good size and the working staff are helpful.However the rooms are very tired and in need of complete refurbishment.We have stayed at a number of Taj Hotels and this is the poorest example.There did not appear to be sufficent staff at reception to deal with the guests.

Beautifully presented 5 star hotel. The hotel ceases to amaze me the lobby and reception area is beautiful and guests are treated to a glass of sparkling juice upon arrival. There is pianist at the paino playing beautiful tunes. The rooms were spotless and very spacious superbly clean. the bathrooms are super clean with double sinks, separate bath, and shower and toilet. I would never stay anywhere else as I was very pleased.

The hotel room, though little old looking, was comfortable and large. There were no great views from the room and we could only see the street below from the balcony. The hotel is well located within walking distance from the metro and other stores and restaurants. What was really bad was the breakfast menu. I was surprised that, even though a large number of people came from different parts of the world- the breakfast menu had very limited choices of non vegetarian dishes. The breakfast was bad. Rest of the stay was good and the service too is good.
Please improve the quality of food at the restaurants...

Reviewed 10 March 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Taj for a week between 8-15 Feb 12. Hotel is only a 10 minute drive from the airport. After a swift check-in, we were taken to our room and was overwhelmed by the size of the room, and the bathroom. The service is faultless - all the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Room is cleaned every day and is spotless. They leave two small bottles of water and small pieces of chocolate which I thought was a nice touch.

Breakfast is reasonable with an egg station and a good choice of hot and cold food. However, with it being an Indian owned hotel I would have been happier to experience some tasty, spicy indian breakfast like nihari, keema, aloo/chana poori and indian sweets.

Hotel has an impressive lobby with comfortable sofas. The metro station is less than 5 minute walk on al rigga rd - a day pass which can be used on both metro and buses is very cheap at 16 dirhams (less than 3 British pounds, exchange rate in Dubai was 5.7 dirhams to the pound).

You must try out the rooftop swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steamroom and the gym - very relaxing.

As the airport is close by, you might just hear the plane noise if the air conditioning, which drowns out the noise, is turned off. I must add though that I am a light sleeper.

Overall, we had a comfortable stay at the Taj and would definitely stay here again.
