A lady from reception desk accompanied me to my room on 4th floor and explained the facilities. The room was spacious with marble flooring and the bath room with tub was nice.But I... More

This has to be the best place to stay in Mumbai. The location is wonderful, right by the Gateway to India, yet within easy walking distance of restaurants, markets and sight seeing the beautiful architectural buildings. Although our room was in the tower block, it was still a great experience. The staff were really friendly and helpful, attentive without being... More

I came here for my birthday weekend and stayed in a club room in the main part of the hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful, but is the service that you will appreciate. The staff went above and beyond my expectations. The butler assigned to my room was excellent and the little surprises he left in the room throughout the... More

Everything about this hotel is special. We were greeted with garlands and smiles. Staying in the newer block our room had a fantastic view of the Gateway to India and the sea. The room although not large was spacious enough for a short stay and extremely comfortable, including the kingsize bed. Dinner in the Indian restaurant Masala Kraft was a... More

Everything about this hotel exudes quality. The history, building and staff are superb. I recommend that you take the 5pm introduction tour as there are some aspects you may miss. One example is that the lovely Sea View restaurant also serves breakfast overlooking the harbour. Booked through TripAdvisor at a good price. We totally recomend the Taj at Colaba

We stayed at the Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai after a Seabourn cruise, so we had been pretty spoilt and had high expectations. The hotel staff are the most pleasant and accomodating you could ask for. We stayed in a Club Room, and the Reception process was smooth, efficient and comforting with a drink and spot in the very luxurious lounge.... More
