“Second visit, and is breathtaking again...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great place for business, centre of town.
Lovely rooms, and an enjoyable stay.
Good food. Especially the laid out lunches and dinners.
Worth the stay. Again and again.
This is the second time Im coming back here.

Room Tip: All rooms are great...

For a Taj sited so centrally in Lutyens Delhi, the Taj Mahal wears its age on its sleeve -- from the lobby to the room and bathroom, you get the feeling of a tiring property. A request for a fruit platter/basket (yes it's no longer de rigueur mebbe because of cost cuts) elicits the same weary set of fruits day-after-day. Also had to make several calls to reach room service for the sole meal I ordered in. Something overall about this Taj that says ``functional yes, grand no.''

This hotel is very close to the India Gate and I understand that it is also where VVIPs come to
stay. My colleagues looked up to me as being fortunate to have stayed in this hotel! The lighting, the aroma and the very rich ambience can easily make one feel the difference when compared to other 5 star hotels. The price charged is proportionately high. I would not have stayed here if it were not a business trip. Despite many guests around, Taj Mahal hotel try to personalize their hospitality and I think that is their USP. They were very courteous to all the people. The room that I got was on the 5th floor and non-smoking area. It was a spacious room with all standard amenities. One day, when the cab that I had booked to take me to Noida did not turn up, the security personnel immediately arranged for a safe private cab which helped me reach my office on time. I appreciate their gesture of finding me a private cab and not insisting me to use the expensive hotel cab. Though the address of this hotel is Mansingh road 1, one needs to enter thru' Motilal Nehru Marg. The first day I went to Mansingh road, but found only the exit gate. I then had to come back, circle around and enter thru' Motilal Nehru Marg. The breakfast was complimentary as part of the package. The spread at the breakfast restaurant was just ok though I expected much more for the amount being charged. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for business, but not for a vacation with family.

This is a top shelf hotel with excellent service, comfortable rooms with lots of amenities, very good restaurants, and high prices. Expect to pay for everything you use (e.g. - Wi-Fi, breakfast).

Located in the wealthiest section of town. If you want to mingle with the rich and famous in Delhi, this is the place.

The hotel has a distinct smell (sandalwood probably). The service was as expected and the rooms were cozy. The design is very intricate and somehow feels homy. The staff were nice and i had a restful sleep. Overall, the stay was ok.

My wife and I stayed at the Taj twice during a month long trip throughout India, which was organized by Greaves Travel [who are outstanding]. The Taj is centrally located and nicely appointed. We stayed in one of their Club Rooms, which gets you personalized service and use of a room where breakfast is served for floor guests and complimentary drinks are available in the evenings. Service is the Taj's strong point. Simply flawless. The hotel rooms are well appointed but tend to be smaller that one would expect. We recommend this hotel. The only reason it does not merit 5 stars is that the public rooms, while refined, lack pizazz.

Spent the last few days of our India trip here. As we started the holiday at the Imperial Hotel we were curious how the Taj would compare. We booked a two night package which included a massage for each of us and a cookery lesson from the Varq chefs. Offered somewhat better value than the Imperial. Room also nice, not overly spacious bathroom but nice color scheme. Were in 11th floor, so had a good view direction golf course. The Taj has a somewhat livelier atmosphere than the Imperial, it may be more business focused but that is no disadvantage. There are nice coffee areas in the Lobby, breakfast room also has good design and offers good choice. Weather was slightly cool so the nice pool area could not be taken advantage of - Early March is better travel season in N India if you want to unwind at the pool after the sights. Dinner in Varq very nice, this is fine dining Indian style. Spa/Sauna/Steam good, bit tight space - esp given the size of the hotel, but as not many people seem to visit this did not matter. Top marks for Pramod in Guest Reception - super friendly/led us to the room upon arrival and also showed great interest in our well-being afterwards.
