One of the best taj properties to go for. The feeling or service you receive is difficult to be explained in words. They always give you more than what you could expect.Below is short synopsis of what you get - Pros - 1) Royal Welcome in a buggy with rose petals falling over you when u climb the stairs.

Royal welcome with a ride in the buggy and showering of flowers. Rooms are not very big but good. However Bathrooms are better! Huge and separate he and she vanities. Food is good but super expensive! Breakfast was the best part with everything prepared in order and served on the verandah with the city view! Did not like the swimming... More

This is a magical hotel with a strong sense of history. Previous reviewers have decribed the devices the Taj uses to make the experience unique (starting with the arrival by horsedrawn chariot + being led up the stairs by a liveried guard - clockwise, because that's how the Nizam would do it etc). There are also the smaller things, like... More

Humility is the hallmark of all great people. I do have great respect for Hotel General Managers who are humble. I do like learning from them. On an average I travel 90 times in a year; annually I do clock 200 room nights in five star hotels. One such humble General Manager whom I have known for some time is... More

We did not sleep in this hotel but only stayed for the day. The entrance to the hotel was probably the most memorable and dramatic ever. Upon arriving at the gate, my wife and I were made to ride a chariot that brought us to the main lobby of the palace. The chariot itself was apparently restored and goes way... More

My wife and I stayed at the Palace during a 3-day weekend. We got in early on a Friday and were carefully escorted from the entrance on a royal horse drawn carriage.
