Great hotel in so many ways. Good location, good sized rooms and fantastic service. We had to use the concierge on several occasions to ask for advice on shopping and tours and all the tips given worked out well. Room service was outstanding, particularly when my son was ill and the kitchen prepared him the locally accepted remedy for an upset stomach (which did seem to work!) There is a nice pool area which made you feel further away from the traffic and crowds than you actually were. The pool area definitely needs more sun beds though as we often struggled to get one, particularly in the afternoon.
My only real criticism of the hotel was the overpriced cost of having wi-fi in the bedroom (about £60 for a weeks stay) tho you could go to the business centre for a free 30minutes per day.
We found the extensive security at the hotel comforting.
If we were to return to Mumbai, I would definitely want to stay at the Taj

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.
