Palace Downtown

An Oasis of calm in the vibrant Downtown area.


As soon as you arrive at the Palace through the illuminated archway, you are presented with the Arabian dream, a pathway through the middle of the large water features, which dominate the outside of the hotel.

In the main reception of the hotel you are greeted with a true Arabian feel, from the inside water feature with floating candles and Rose petals strewn on the surface of the water, through to the high ceiling shaped like a small bell tower, with many different lanterns alight. This gives a true feeling of being in Arabia with the lights flickering and throwing a tranquil glow of light, whilst casting eerie shadows, this is a truly amazing and mysterious place to stay.

The palace hotel is built on the edge of a lake in downtown Dubai, where you are surrounded by the some of the world’s largest iconic constructions. Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. The dancing fountains – the largest in the world. The Dubai mall – The largest shopping mall in the world. The hotel is connected directly to the souk al Bahar where traditional Arabian goods are sold.

Step outside and you will find an outdoor swimming pool with a large number of Arabian tents surrounding the pool area. These protect you from the searing heat of the sun during the day, whilst providing a peaceful place to reside and eat at night. This area is surrounded by well spaced palm trees that truly give a relaxing and authentic feel to the area.


The self contained and well presented Spa has six spacious private treatment suites. There are separate areas for male and female clients, with two Oriental bath houses containing Hammam tables. The spa is furnished with a sauna, monsoon showers, Jacuzzis and relaxation areas. This is one of the better spas that you will find available in Dubai.

The hotel contains 242 guest rooms comprising of the Deluxe and Palace rooms, as well as including 81 varying quality suites from the Junior suite to the Imperial suite. This is a high end hotel with all the rooms have balconies which provide views over Burj Khalifa, the lake or the Old Town. The rooms are very spacious with the rooms varying from the entry level room – the Deluxe room – at 51sq meters, through to the immense 500sq meters of the Imperial suite. The hotel, Spa and Restaurants have won many an award between them. This is one of the best authentic hotels to stay at in Dubai.

As we always suggest, try to book a slightly more expensive room which gives you access to the club lounge, as this provides breakfast, light meals and refreshments throughout the day, as well as having its own library for that quiet time that you may crave.

You will find a gourmet feast of different restaurants that will appeal to anyone’s taste. With three international restaurants under the hotels roof that have won m

any awards between them, this is testament to the quality of the food provided to its guests. The choice ranges from international to regional cuisine. As well as having a 24hr lobby lounge that provides tea and coffee as well as freshly made pastries.

The meeting, wedding and conference facilities are second to none, with the royal ballroom accommodating up to 250 guests for a sit down meal, or up to 400 for a cocktail soirée.
