The location of the hotel is excellent at marine drive. I like it and enjoy morning walk at marine drive. My room was back-water facing. could have nice view from the room while taking tea and reading newspaper.

Stayed here for two days in September, and maybe again will in December, but certainly find the overall experience sub optimal, when it comes to total delight.

Stayed one night at the hotel and it was comfortable, but somehow it did not feel like the Taj hotels elsewhere. The staff were very friendly attended to your needs promptly. The rooms were fine, but looked bit 'tired' and could do with a makeover. The food was standard and for the evening buffet some of the dishes were cold.

Lot of maintenance issue especially with most of the air-conditioning in the rooms not setting to temperatures in the range of 23-26 degree Celsius.
