We were given a complimentary upgrade to a room on the 5th floor with a great view of the grounds. The upgrade included afternoon tea, cocktails, chocolate and cognac tasting and the free tour - make... More

This really is an amazing hotel. It feels really special, exclusive and is steeped in history - I'd recommend doing the hotel tour which is free, it's brilliant and the guy who presents it should be an actor! The rooms in the palace wing are a little dated but it's a palace building so is to be expected. Food was... More

The room was rather dull and dingy,whilst the bathroom was in need of a major refurb.There was no seperate shower and basically felt like a... More

Was concerned the rooms would be outdated and although the tower room was not large, it was bright, extremely comfortable and had a great view. Would not now stay anywhere else in Mumbai, great position and excellent service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The history of Mumbai and The Taj Mahal Palace are dramatically intertwined. The hotel is Mumbai’s first harbour landmark (built 21 years before the Gateway of India) and the site of the first licensed bar in the city. For more than a century, the Taj has played an intrinsic part in the life of the city, hosting Maharajas, dignitaries and eminent personalities from across the globe. Today it is a Leading Hotel of the World and favourite destination for discerning business travellers. A treasure-trove of invaluable memorabilia, there is a story to tell behind every pillar, a landmark deal in every boardroom, and a storied celebration under every awning. Come be a part of the legend.Overlooking the Gateway of India with a panoramic view of the bay, every one of the 560 rooms including 44 suites are the perfect blend of rich history and modern convenience. ... more   less
