Having spent a night in both the Trident Nariman Point and the Taj Palace Hotel I feel I can give a fair comparison and although the Trident was really nice (check the review) you just can´t beat the monumental grandeur of the Taj. What a magnificent building, what an impressive interior, what a beautiful lush swimming pool area, and what... More

I had the fortune to stay here on a business trip for a few days and it makes no apologies for addressing the luxury end of market, but if you can afford it you will not be disappointed with the outstanding courteous service at every level and an attentive eye to detail across all departments to customers needs. There is... More

We recently stayed at the Taj to celebrate an anniversary. Upon entering our room we found it decorated with balloons and beautiful flowers. It was exquisite... So much detail one of the arrangements even showed 30 years. The staff was so helpful, the service was fantastic. We were upgraded and had complimentary use of high tea and cognac and chocolates...

This is one of the best hotels in the Southern peninsula of Mumbai. It is landmark heritage building that has been nicely preserved and protected and matches perfectly with the nearby Gateway of India. All the high and mighty have visited and slept in this hotel, so it's full of history and definitely has seen glorious and not so glorious... More

Mumbai in July is hot, like an oven, and sometimes very wet, like a bath. So it is good to have a cool, reasonably comfortable hotel like the Taj. But, the inside of the Taj, with the endless staircases and galleries, does look like a prison. The Taj is not a particularly beautiful hotel. The old part looks like a... More

It's just top notch. Enjoyed the Sunday brunch. It's just brilliant. So tasty and a very grand spread. Such a nice gesture and hospitality. I would definitely visit the place again and if your ever in Bombay it's a must visit.

We made a booking at the Taj Mahal in Mumbai. We wanted to enjoy in the beautiful heritage part of the hotel, bu were booked instead in the extended part of the hotel, which was very disappointing. Anyhow, the rooms were like any Taj gateway hotels...but were charged a bomb, probably due to its location. We had the view of... More

We went to the Sea View Lounge for afternoon tea and sandwiches during our visit to Mumbai and this hotel is absolutely amazing! We sat beside the window and we could see the gateway of India.The hotel is very clean and beautiful and I would most definitely recommend a visit to this hotel.

The Taj palace is not only a hotel, it is an icon in its own right. If you are in Mumbai, you are bound to see it as soon as you travel to Gateway of India. The contrast that the hotel provides, i.e. the best of the street options on the outside, where if you were to walk you can... More

My absolutely favorite hotel in Bombay. Even staying for one night only is totally worth it. Especially in the old wing. The Jiva Spa is fabulous, the staff always helpful and discrete, breakfast buffet is amazing and the whole Ambiente makes you feel very special. Love it.
