My wife and I stayed in the Taj Palace wing with our 6 year old son, and we had a amazing stay. The attention to detail and service is impeccable. The restaurants are wonderful we had amazing food at Wasabi and Golden Dragon. Would recommend that if you come to Mumbai you should stay in the Taj at least once.... More

On checking in we had some issues probably as a result of our booking agent, and the rooms we we initially given we smoking rooms (who smokes these days ??), then we were given musky smelling rooms in the towers (from reviews seems a common problem) which weren't satisfactory. However in a heroic recovery from the issues the GM sorted... More

The Taj Mahal Palace provides a memorable hotel stay. The quality of facilities and hospitality are amazing. The staff members are excited to show off the hotel and its food offerings, and proud to be part of this venerable institution. The hotel provides complementary bottled water and excellent teas around the grounds and in the guest rooms. Guests can access... More

I was very excited about staying at this Hotel. However, having stayed three nights I was very disappointed with several factors - mainly the service, disorganised breakfast and the quality of the rooms (damp). This in an overrated Hotel save your money and go to a highly recommened Hotel " The Leela Palace" especially Udaipur.

This is the kind of place you need to visit at least once, even if just to walk through with a guided tour that they provide every day. Better, if you can stay here. We arrived before India's Independence Day and you can imagine it was VERY busy. However, you would never even know it! The kind of service this... More

The service was unbelievable. The staffs went to extra length to keep us happy we... More

From the moment you arrive at the hotel you are treated like royalty. A warm welcome, delightful rooms and stunning views. The pool area is beautiful, and the service is exceptional. The only gripe is an India general one, why does no hotel ever have a decent hairdryer?! That aside, the Taj has that rare ability to make you feel... More

Its a crown of Taj group. Nice view of Gate way of India. It gives a royal touch and redefines the hospitality industry standards. It does not need any introduction. A must visit hotel once in lifetime.
