Good Location, good service

Get car service to/from the airport, also used for a driving tour of Mumbai... Drivers were very knowledgeable and made us feel safe. When we arrived, we did not have to check in at the front desk, they already knew my name and took us right up to the room and wrote down our credit card number for incidentals. Nice service. Great breakfast buffet. Walking distance from the Gateway of India and the Elephanta caves' ferry. Close to many other South Mumbai attractions.

Stay here!!

I booked the tower but was surprised to find I was upgraded to the historic part...without even asking! It is a beautiful true five-star hotel. Even if it is a bit over your budget, I would recommend staying here. You can have breakfast watching at the sun rise while looking at boats and the India Gate out the window. It is a historic attraction itself...and you can't stay in the Taj Mahal in Agra, so stay in this one instead. Paul from Canada

Over the top at the Taj Palace

Stayed because we wanted to experience the Taj Palace. It was over the top good, though we don't really like all the servants and service. Be warned that the gateway to India area outside the Taj is full of the typical hawkers and "free" flower/bracelet givers. Hotel went above and beyond to help coordinate things for our trip.

Fit for a Maharaja :)

The service at the Taj is fit for a maharaja! We got an early check in & a late check-out on request at no extra cost. We received a flattering welcome with a beautiful flower garland. The check in staff could not locate our reservation on their system but were very courteous, we even received a bouquet of roses and an apology letter for this incidence later in our room. The lavish interiors of the hotel truly adds to the Taj experience. Good restaurant options, personally loved the burger and rasmalai by the pool! Finding taxis willing to run on the meter was a bit of a challenge, most drivers were opportunistic wanting to charge much more which was a bit of an issue & the bell boys outside seemed overwhelmed and therefore not very helpful!

Global traveler... this is by far the best hotel I've stayed in!

Service is absolutely flawless and fantastic. The hotel is a wonderful sight and treat to be in. Such a historic building. Very comfy beds and rooms, maintained and cleaned excellently. Food is great, with a ton of options in the hotel, and many more within walking distance. 'High Tea' in the Sea Lounge is unbelievably good. Amazing value for money, and just a real treat all round. Finding it hard to leave this place, and I've already extending my trip by 2 days because the hotel is so good. Best in Mumbai, Best in India, arguably, best in the world.

Best Experience Yet

The Taj is now my favourite hotel. Yes, it was suitably located with very clean rooms (in my case thanks to Anita and Arun), comfortable beds, delicious food, incredibly friendly and helpful staff (like Viren and Priyanka). What made the experience stand out was the attention paid to the little things specific to me. I loved using the phone and being addressed by my name, instead of a random "Hello M'am". Gifts on the first night accompanied by an animal-folded towel were much appreciated. But you stole my heart with your Taj bookmark for the book I had left on my bedside table and the gorgeous bouquet of red roses - unforgettable!!! I hear a bicycle tour is in the makings - something else to look forward to. Well worth another stay!

Great honeymoon venue

I let them know in advance that we were arriving straight from our wedding and they prepared the room with rose petals and balloons for us. It was so sweet. This is a truly world class hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

As we had only a short time there, on our second and last full day we booked a hotel car plus driver for half a day, with an official Guide they organised for us, and did a whistle stop tour of the main attractions in the city. It was well worth doing.
