Exquisite hotel, fantastic location, terrific staff. Traditional Arabic design & decor provide a sophisticated & classic style that complements the outstanding location with views of 830m (1/2-mile high) Bourj Khalifa (completed 2009). Close to Dubai Mall. Easy acess to Burj Park, Lake and evening water fountain show; the area is great place for jogging & outdoor fitness in the shadow of BK. Palace Hotel has complete gym facilities, incredible food and outdoor dining facilities by lake & poolside.
