The service from housekeeping was outstanding. I left my sunglasses on a bench, they put a glass cleaning cloth next to them. They tidied... More

The Taj Mahal Palace is an absolutely amazing hotel that exceeded our expectations. The service was superb, and the attention to detail within the hotel was second to none. The food in the hotel was amazing and our favorite was the Indian restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to or passing through Mombai.

Everything has been perfect at the Taj. After a month backpacking from Ladakh, Kashmir, Kerala, etc. with our 5 year old boy, what a treat to arrive at the Taj and be welcomed by the amazing staff at the front desk! The hotel is gorgeous as one could expect, but even more, the service and the staff make you feel... More

The Taj Palace is an excellent place to stay in Mumbai. Located on the end of a small peninsular it has a fantastic vista facing the ocean. I had a room where I had full view of the ocean and watched a dramatic approach of a rain storm. The decor and room facilities are exemplary with all the details that... More

This is truly one of the best hotels in the world. Service is outstanding, food exquisite, rooms beautiful! The hotel is certainly not inexpensive but it is worth every penny. If you are going to Mumbai stay here!

Stayed at the palace wing of the Hotel for a night over the weekend. The property takes you back in time. There are star hotels and then there is The Taj. Checkin was smooth as could be, staff were very polite. It took them no more then 5 mins to show us to our room, while we waited at the... More

A top of the line hotel with attentive staff, well furnished and kept rooms, and an excellent Indian restaurant. If you can, take the hotel tour available at 5pm daily. The concierge put together a great city tour package and everybody will go out of their way to help you--if nothing else than to give you a warm smile and... More

The Taj is a fabulous hotel! The staff friendly, kind, and efficient. The Taj location, perfect, overlooking India Gate. Our room stunning. Our housekeeping staff, every attention to detail, nothing missed! Exemplary! We stayed in room 452 even though facing India gate, no noise! Beautiful room. Thank you Taj for the comfortable luxury!

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
