This had two toilets and showers, a large lounge, a separate bedroom and a dressing room. A complimentary bottle of wine was present in the room together with...

My first stay at the Taj Palace was prior to any renovation and the location was ideal for a first visit. Today it remains an optimum choice for location, however with the upgrade and additional features added to the managing of this unique property, it is now far superior to many hotels around the world. It is like living in...

It is amazing and thoughtful this monument is. Given the age and location for this beautiful place it is difficult to take into words how beautiful it is. I can recommend a few things - if you have purchased a sari, wear it there- go early in the morning as during the afternoon the marble is reflective and hot- lastly...

Exceptional hotel in all respects. Worth staying on the Club Level with complementary breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails. The staff are uniformly friendly and their attention to detail was faultless. Great location.

Thee best hotel stay I have ever experienced. Felt like a king and queen on arrival. Faultless. Every member of staff was 10/10. You were greeted by everyone that passed you. The room was exceptional. The housekeeping was something else....Little touches were such a treat from the bracelets gifted by housekeeping, rose petals on the floor, shamy leathers placed on...

We stayed at the Palace wing for few days. The building itself was beautiful, the service was excellent, the location was very convenient. The area around the hotel is vibrant, with many interesting shops just behind the hotel and a very good restaurant, The Table, just round the corner. We'll be back soon.

Only ever seen this place on television and once passing. Now staying here in person is fantastic. If you want a 5 star hotel go elsewhere as this is at least a 7 star. Wonderful staff who are always willing to help. House keeping who do a wonderful job and always go that bit extra and always seem to be...
