Stayed recently as part of a business trip with Taj Hotels - met some of the 'stars' of the BBC show! The setting really is iconic - view from room across the Gateway and Bay of Bombay is amazing. Lovely to see the city come to life at night walking down the sea front. The hotel was really welcoming, the... More

I have had the pleasure of travelling around India for almost 3 weeks, as a mining engineer I tend to spend time in remote areas without electricity, water and basic amenities. My employer booked me a room at the Taj Mahal Palace and I can honestly say, after travelling the world for 6 months this is by far my best... More

I stayed for one night in a deluxe room in the tower for a touch of luxury before heading off backpacking for a couple of months. It was a lovely welcome and the hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas. My room was spacious and had a windows overlooking the Gateway to India and the bay. I had a cocktails that... More

Having spent a night in both the Trident Nariman Point and the Taj Palace Hotel I feel I can give a fair comparison and although the Trident was really nice (check the review) you just can´t beat the monumental grandeur of the Taj. What a magnificent building, what an impressive interior, what a beautiful lush swimming pool area, and what... More

I had the fortune to stay here on a business trip for a few days and it makes no apologies for addressing the luxury end of market, but if you can afford it you will not be disappointed with the outstanding courteous service at every level and an attentive eye to detail across all departments to customers needs.

We recently stayed at the Taj to celebrate an anniversary. Upon entering our room we found it decorated with balloons and beautiful flowers. It was exquisite... So much detail one of the arrangements even showed 30 years. The staff was so helpful, the service was fantastic. We were upgraded and had complimentary use of high tea and cognac and chocolates...

This is one of the best hotels in the Southern peninsula of Mumbai. It is landmark heritage building that has been nicely preserved and protected and matches perfectly with the nearby Gateway of India.

Mumbai in July is hot, like an oven, and sometimes very wet, like a bath. So it is good to have a cool, reasonably comfortable hotel like the Taj. But, the inside of the Taj, with the endless staircases and galleries, does look like a prison. The Taj is not a particularly beautiful hotel. The old part looks like a... More

It's just top notch. Enjoyed the Sunday brunch. It's just brilliant. So tasty and a very grand spread. Such a nice gesture and hospitality. I would definitely visit the place again and if your ever in Bombay it's a must visit.

We made a booking at the Taj Mahal in Mumbai. We wanted to enjoy in the beautiful heritage part of the hotel, bu were booked instead in the extended part of the hotel, which was very disappointing. Anyhow, the rooms were like any Taj gateway hotels...but were charged a bomb, probably due to its location. We had the view of... More
