I've been to 60+ countries and stayed at a lot of nice hotels and I would put the Taj at the very top of my list. Everything was perfect. I had reserved a fairly inexpensive room/breakfast package in the Tower wing. At check-in I was taken over to the Palace wing and upgraded to an upper floor Palace room with... More

Yes, i have mentioned this hotel as my home in mumbai. Excellent service from their staffs. I couldnt think of any other way to thank them than tipping generously in the end. Always theres a smile on every staffs face. And to make u feel secure, you need to go through through a few security checks to reach the lobby.

The bathroom was completely done in marble and was stocked with the usual Taj soaps and shampoos. The towels were thick and linens wonderful.... More

The Taj Palace is the finest hotel that I have stayed in. It is a super luxurious hotel. The staff is very well trained and accommodating. Located right next to the Gateway of India, most rooms offer an excellent view of the Arabian Sea. Colaba, Nariman Point and the Marine Drive are close by. The original hotel (heritage wing) is...

Staying at the Taj - Heritage Wing is always a fantastic experience. From the vibe of the heritage building to the unique view of the Gateway of India to the attentive staff - it all comes together to enhance your experience. Some hotels have a buzz when you walk in and the Taj just has that certain something. Yet when... More
