Hotel's Favorite
We are leisure travelers who literally came to Mumbai only to stay at this iconic hotel..we had the most awesome time ever! As I state in all my revies - we are luxury travelers who've stayed in almost all of Tajs, Oberois and Leelas so yes we're fully aware of the luxury hotels and what they have to offer! We were staying at the iconic Palace Wing of the hotel in the Grand View Room facing the Gateway of India. It was a brilliant stay right from the view, to the room, to the pool, to the restaurants - everything was enjoyable! Even our little issues here and there - were sorted so promptly by Mr Praveen from housekeeping and also personal attention was given by Mr Chandrakant - the floor manager. Our most outrageous request too was gladly fulfilled by Mr Chandrakant. Really made us feel like royals! Absolutely worth visiting. The palace wing has a separate place for having breakfast too with crazy views of Gateway of India. Highly recommend this iconic hotel!

The most beautiful hotel, has everything you would want and more. Lovely food served by the pool area in the evening. Breakfast served in a delightful room overlooking the sea and the India Gate, gorgeous sunrise. Great rooms overlooking the front. Exceptional service - anticipating your needs before you do eg bookmark and glass cleaner.

Taj Mahal Palace is for India what Peninsula means for Hong Kong. An iconic place full of colonial history, beautiful architecture and lots of style. The pool yard is spectacular, the hotel itself is a bit crowded for me but so are the iconic places. Rooms are rather small but comfortable.

Wonderful stay. Taj staff right from reception till room services and restaurants is exceptionally courteous and welcoming. They serve their guests by their heart and make them feel very special. I wish the foreign chains of hotels in other countries must imbibe this mannerism and will to serve from Taj Hotel team and staff. My salute and gratitude to the entire fraternity of Taj Hotels. Thank You for your services.

One of the best hotel stay experience I have had if not the best. The history of the place, the luxurious interiors, the view from the hotel, live instrumental music and the great food. Not to mention the warmth of all the employees with everyone wishing the guests during any part of the day just made one feel respected and welcome.

The rooms were fantastic, the service especially by our butler was outstanding. The food and service at Wasabi were exceptional. We were let down by the food and particularly the service at Aquarius. Our order got lost, then delayed, then arrived cold - all with not a word from the service staff. To make matters worse, we had a very large rodent run across the path we were sitting by. Overall very un-Taj.

Well what can i say! This is the most magical hotel that we have ever had the priviledge of staying in. From to check in to check out our stay was absolutely fantastic. The staff were exceptional and all the added ''extras'' were just wonderful. A welcome ceremony that was truly fantastic and when we checked out we were given some gifts...postcards of the hotel, miniature bottles of perfume and aftershave, coins from 1903 when the hotel was first built and i was given the most luxurious silk Indian scarf...i cannot say enough about our stay...it was out of this world
