Staying in this hotel was a very different experience. Don't opt this this hotel entirely for luxuury. I had a room in the palace wing of the hotel. It was pretty nice, but not the best room I had in India,by a long shot! I also felt the AC was not too good in the corridors, as it used to... More

Don't miss this, if you travel to mumbai. This is by far one of the top hotels of india. There are 2 wings, old palace and the new wing. Palace side is where I will recommend you to stay. Taj always makes you feel like home. This is part of the chain of hotels run by india's most trusted groups... More

We also saw the Memorial Stone ( A tribute )which is laid inside the Hotel for the individuals who died in 26/11 incident. I would... More

Its not everyday that you get a chance to spend a day at THE TAJ! Its the King among all hotels in Mumbai (due to its sheer location and brand name). The very name Taj Mahal spells grandiosity, magnificence and beauty and the hotel falls nothing short of it. The place has an old world charm with its magnificent domes... More

We stayed in the original palace part of the hotel---not the tower. The whole experience was exceptional. Our beautiful room overlooked the Gateway to India monument and the water. We took the courtesy hotel tour at 5pm and recommend it highly to hear all the history and to see much of what this hotel has to offer. Afternoon tea in... More

The Taj is where me and my partner have always celebrated landmarks in our lives. Either Golden Dragon, Masala Kraft, Souk, Sea Lounge or Zodiac grill is where we usually go. We chose to spend a night here once and what a memorable experience it was! We did the the Taj Hotel tour which is at 5pm everyday and i... More

Stay at Taj will remain as one of the most unforgettable stay. Lovely location, ambience, awesome food and service. The breakfast spread is one of the best I have ever had in India or abroad. Would love to go again.

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
