This is the original Taj, I stayed in the palace side, and glad that I did. Very well appointed, and gives you a sense of what it was like in the 1920s. I was here in the monsoon season. My first room was a little musty because it had just rained for three days continuously. When I told the staff,... More

A night at the Taj Mahal Palace heritage hotel, is more like a themed experience than just a night's nice accommodation. From the hope of a possible upgrade, to the showmanship of Viren, on the heritage tour of the hotel's history, to just enjoying the ambiance of a hotel with such an iconic place in Mumbai's identity, it's all great...

As a weekend break from daily routine, my husband & I love to get pampered by the Taj Mahal Palace which is only a short distance from home. This time to my recent visit I was highly disappointed with the hotel management & staff at the reception. As we always stay at the heritage wing of the hotel, the atmosphere... More

Can't fault this place, if your looking for a bit (lot) of luxury in your life..... then you need to stay here! We decided on here because of where it was & it was extremely gay friendly even though I had heard otherwise beforehand! Our room overlooked the harbour & Gateway to India, so worth it! I would recommend a... More

Do buy/google the BBC2 series of 'Hotel India' which is about this hotel. It is inexplicable: how do explain bliss? I was just reading recent trip advisor reviews of this hotel and generally, everyone loves it but there is one issue which 'management' need to address urgently: the not free internet. Please dont reply saying 'we working on it, it's... More

I stayed here on the night of my marriage for 2 days.Its a beautiful hotel with so many things to talk about. Trip Advisor would run into pages if i write about every single detail. I am true fan of Taj Hotels in India. The food, staff, the architecture, the artifacts, the hospitality, the overall experience itself is so authentic... More

This hotel lives up to its reputation. Stunning environment, great service, fine dining & superior in every way. We were made to feel like VIPs from the minute we walked in. Thank you Taj for a great stay.

Was here a long time ago with my parents. I don't think it has changed much though and it is truly a magnificent experience to have stayed here. Gateway to India is outside and there you can get a boat to Elephanta Island. It beautiful with carved out sculptures of the Hindu gods in cave. The hotel serves excellent food... More
