Fantastic Hotel

The Taj met every aspect of our expectations and more. The staff were very welcoming from the get-go. We were also fortunate to receive an upgrade with our room which we highly appreciated as the room was of high standard and very palacial. I would definitely go back to the Taj on my next visit to Mumbai.

It's a quirky grande dame of a place

I have stayed at other luxury hotels in Bombay over the last 3 or 4 years and never thought I'd go for this one, but thought the location and its reputation was worth it for a room share with a friend visiting India for the first time. The staff are fabulous, but what makes it all the more fabulous is the quirkiness of the service. Let me explain. Day 1 - eggs florentine at breakfast, five minutes. Day 2 - eggs florentine at breakfast, no sign of them after 20 minutes. Huge tugging of forelock, even a visit from the chef (female, always good to see a woman holding their own in a top kitchen) to explain why they took so long. Day 3 - eggs florentine, would you like one or two, two, two arrive but individually plated onto two plates. Just a teensy bit of the Basil Fawltry going on here, but adding to the character. The rooms in the Tower section are a bit tired, but there is a refurbishment programme going on to the exterior so maybe the rooms will be next. Just a bit dated and almost 1980s hotel look about the style. Fabulous Firest Essentials toiletries too. 2 different rooms, the first had a partial view of water, but predominantly overlooked the Bombay Yacht Club. Second room for final night was fifteenth floor sea facing. I scored the jackpot. The view was superlative. Quite superlative. Would I stay there again? Probably not. I prefer the other hotels I have stayed at (Trident and Four Seasons) for their more contemporary and efficient feel, but I loved my stay here. The staff are all enthusuastio and never walk past any guest without saying good morning, good afternoon, good evening, always with a genuine smile too. I think the staff really enjoy working here and nothing seems forced in their behaviour. A special mention to the room attendant who I thought may have been slightly OCD when I returned to find Velcro cable ties attached to my phone charger cables etc. And to all the other room attendants as I overheard another guest this morning commenting favourably on their Velcro cable ties too. I promise to look after them carefully and use them at home too.......

Made to feel like a Princess in this Palace

My Mum and I stayed at The Taj in September during our 4 night stay in Mumbai. The Taj Mahal Palace has such an amazing reputation and history - we didn't really consider staying anywhere else - so we were very happy that it lived up to our high expectations! We were made to feel very welcome the minute we arrived, despite it being the middle of the night after a long flight, and were delighted when we were told we had been given a free room upgrade to the Palace! The staff, in general, are faultless - every single one will greet you as you walk past and nothing is too much trouble. The little touches of personalised surprise gifts and having a new flower arrangement everyday in your room is what makes this hotel so special you're made to feel like the guest of honour. Also, the location of the hotel couldn't of been in a better position for us - close to The Gateway of India and Colaba Causeway (street lined with stalls, shops and great cafes/restaurants) acting as a great base for us to explore Mumbai. Coming back to The Taj was a welcome relief after a hot, busy and tiring day of sightseeing in the crazy but wonderful city of Mumbai! We loved our stay at The Taj and wouldn't hesitate in staying here again - I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want to feel like royalty for a few days!

Amazing hotel

If you really want to spoil yourself then this is it. My husband got me two nights here as a birthday gift for my fortieth and you really cannot compare it to anywhere else. I had the cheapest room deal in the tower and still felt like royalty. I can't even imagine what staying in the older even fancier wing is like. If you are on a trip to India and want an experience go here and also to high tea in the hotel.

It is one of the best hotels in India. The service is great. The room was excellent. The bathroom is spacious and nice. We also got an upgrade to the Palace room since the tower is under renovation.

Pride and joy of India!

Ultimate feather in Mother India's crown - a true crowning glory :-) Absolutely fantastic service - you see the grandeur and opulence as soon as you step in. They really know how to take care of their guests. A welcome followed by a garland and tilak! Then you're escorted to your room. Amenities top-notch and faultless. Great restaurants, decor, lovely gym with towels and refreshments, nice pool, cool Jiva spa. They do guided tours of the whole hotel at 1700 hours and explain how the hotel was extended in 1973 (addition of the Tower block) and how/what happened in the 2008 terrorist attack. The hotel has some superb boutiques offering bespoke tailoring. Rooms offer lovely views of the Gateway. Great location in the Old town (Colaba) that has a lot of history and other rated restaurants around. In my opinion everyone needs to stay here at least once to see Indian hospitality at it's very best. I like the traditional uniforms of staff.
