We stayed here for 2 nights on 7 & 8th of Aug in Raj room (room no 109).
Clean and neat rooms
Excellent view of lake pichola, taj lake palace from the rooms
They don’t know the term hospitality I guess, when we arrived at the hotel, forget about the grand welcome with drink, the person at the reception ( I think ALI Hussian) is looking at me and just nodded his head with an expression why are you here? Same was repeated for all the two days. The service is prompt but missing the much needed personnel touch. I think we are the only Indians in the hotel and the behavior by the staff made me think that they least expected darker skin.
Though the room offers great views, it’s from the closed windows sitting on jharookas. I felt like I was missing something with the very experience of enjoying the lake watching. if it’s an open/balcony types and if the cool breeze from the lake touches it’s a different feeling, which I missed I guess.
They got a roof top restaurant but they said its closed because of rain, but I could notice few whites are served there, Not sure what’s their problem. After all, we too pay so much money for the room and tips for service.
Food is damn expensive for the variety & quality.
For those traveling with kids, there are few mosquitoes due to the property adjacent to the lake. So please bring along mosquito repellent cream such as odomous.
Overall not so great experience for the price I paid.
