“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel, the first since it went under the 'Vivanta' grouping. There was no difference to our previous stays here, everything was very professional from all the staff we dealt with.

The room we were given was excellent, typical of what you can expect from the Taj brand.

The area around the hotel is not one we would recommend for walking, so the taxis immediately outside the hotel are most handy.

This hotel probably has the best set of restaurants in any big hotel around. The pub is really cool -- you can ask the bartender to surprize you with a cocktail. he will come and have a short conversation with you and bring you something that suits your mood! Trattoria and Konkan cafe are best in class too. conveniently located, it is close to pretty much any place worth visiting in south mumbai

The rooms are a tad small, but the japanese interior design more than makes up for it.

as always the difference is the Taj service, the property is not so good, but offers good value for money.

very central if the work is in town area

good food, reasonable spread of breakfast.

as the property is old, the rooms etc are not that comparable but still better then many others.

The service is top mark, however the hotel is showing its age. Especially the elevators and some rooms in the 8th floor. Unlike the rooms in the 11th floor which has been renovated.
I had a bad experience with the security where they had the dogs sniffing our shopping which I was uncomfortable with, when sounded my displeasure the security staff excused saying the security machines where out of order.
However this is one of my homely hotels with super staff and the complementary upgrades I get for been a regular and also an inner circle member

WILL I RETURN AGAIN- DEFINETLY.

Room Tip: Try the rooms on the 11th floor as they are recently renovated though the hotel says is different co...

I booked here after a bad experience at a shady hotel..absolutely everything was perfect! Beautiful rooms, great restaurants (3), nice spa (got a massage), and great service.. My only pet peeve is the steep price for Internet which cost me 2000Rs for 3 days..

As a business traveller I expect EVERY business hotel to offer complimentary wifi Internet in rooms as well as public places. The "5 Star" hotels still believe they have the right to charge for this service and sadly they it is only a matter of time till they lose customers to the premium 4 star hotels that offer free wifi. I for one used my iPhone to tether 3G wifi in my room and with the advent of smart phones as the standard issue lesser and lesser folks will require paid hotel Internet. Aside of my grievance with paid wifi I found the bathroom small, with only a walk rain shower, no bath tub nor a hand shower. Bed was comfy room amenities decent, breakfast spread very good. Cabs outside the hotel believe they have the right to rip you off - walk 25 metres and get a metered cab

I recently spent a little over 2 weeks staying at this property. Really loved the quality of service - right from check in, housekeeping, laundry, valet, restaurants and in room dining - it was service with a smile, knowledgeable staff, and always eager to please. Stayed in 2 rooms, one on the 4th floor, and one on the 11th, and the interior was massively different.

Pros:
Exceptional service
Great location
Some of the best restaurants
Decent view from a higher floor
Good room interiors
Excellent variety for breakfast
Decent pool and gym

Cons:
Small rooms - feel a bit cramped for a long stay
Air conditioning - not consistent. Was great on the 4th floor, spotty on the 11th. Woke up occasionally sweating
The Taj Innercircle rewards program doesn't quite seem to be as rewarding as Intercontinental's, or Hyatt's
