Taj Mahal Hotel
Ranked #10 of 712 Hotels in New Delhi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 17, 2005

For lack of other interesting places to stay in Delhi, we stayed at the Taj Mahal on the first night and the last night of our 10 day India trip in March. Our tour operator, Abercrombie & Kent also raved about it. The result... a rather mild disappointment. There's no doubt this hotel is one of the best, is not the best, in Delhi. But it's a business hotel in a big city, just like in any other big cities. The entrance lobby is grand and majestic, however, the rooms are very small and blah. We also stayed in the club floor rooms, because the standard ones were sold out. The prices for these rooms were quite a bit, even by global standards. Complete rip off!! The room was tiny... no character... very boring "Hilton, Sheraton"-like standard hotel room. This was probably the biggest rip off in our entire India trip.

The restaurant downstairs, which is supposed to be one of the best in town, was very... whatever. Restaurant service was very good, however, some of the front desk staff were very rude.

One evening, we went to the newer, more modern hotel, the Park, for dinner. Granted, the Park can look like any other stylish boutique hotels you find a lot these days. We personally felt we would have been much happier at the Park rather than paying dumb price at the Taj Mahal. The restaurant was very good, too.

An excellent hotel, possibly one of the best I have stayed in. Attention to detail was the key that made this place stand out above everyone else.
Highly recommend getting a driver for the afternoon to show you around, don't be scared if he drops you off with a mate to go and explore Old Delhi on a rickshaw....an experience I can't recommend highly enough. The rooms were comfortable, the check-in process a dream, the attentive staff pitched at exactly the right level without being intrusive. The only negative comment I have to make is that for two hours driving around delhi the price was an excellent 800rps......to pick me up from the airport an extortionate 1,700 and it's only a 20 minute drive.

On entering the reception to the Taj Mahal Hotel, you are confronted with spacious opulence. Marble, gleaming glass and brass, luxurious wall hangings - first impressions are excellent. The rooms are large, very comfortable and kept beautifully clean. Every night the beds are turned down and orchid heads are placed on the pillow. The restaurant is superb with a good choice of food - all excellently cooked and well served by courteous and helpful staff.
My only complaint, was that on sitting around the large swimming pool, there was a distinct smell of drains and of course the noise of the traffic outside the hotel - but Indian traffic is prolific - so that was to be expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Sheer luxury.
