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!

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!

Stayed here recently on a business trip. I had a lovely room on the 19th floor overlooking the Gateway of India. Fantastic morning views. Cannot speak of it highly enough.

Always carried a secret desire to stay in this historic and mind-boggling property! Thanks to my employers, had one in 2009 for three days. And it was sheer pleasure and pride to have enjoyed a room view which opened up to The Gateway of India and the Arabian Sea. My advice---enjoy the comforts but don't indulge much in varieties of...

This historic hotel has all the opulence and impeccable service you'd expect from the Taj brand. The club lounge has somewhat restrictive hours but serves some great hot appetizers and delicious mixed drinks. The location is great for seeing the city and is adjacent to India Gate.

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
