Absolutely fantastic & beautiful hotel. Such amazing history - both recent and old. Beautiful swimming pool area and excellent restaurants/bars. Fantastic customer service. Had a great view of the Gateway to India from our room. We were treated like special guests from the time we arrived until the time we left ,3 days later. The staff were helpful. We also enjoyed the experience of Ganesh Visarjan during our stay from hotel.

Room Tip: If you are staying in tower then choose sea view

it is always great to stay in taj mahal palace mumbai. the location and the history surrounding this place makes it a fabulous experience. we were upgraded to luxury room in the palace wing which made the stay even better. do not miss the the high tea in the sea lounge even if it means having a very light lunch.

Room Tip: pay extra for a room in the palce wing

The best thing about staying in Taj Mahal is that you can have a great view of Gateway of India.There was a complimentary free tour of the hotel which was great as we heard the history of the hotel. This trip lasted about 45 minutes and gave good insight into the history of hotel. Remember this is the same hotel which suffered one of the biggest terrorist attack in the history of mankind

What makes this hotel stand out is the service. We booked a suite for one night and were collected from the aiport by a chauffeur in a fabulous air-con, wi-fi enabled mercedes, cold towels and cold water.

Upon arrival at the hotel instead of having to wait standing at a desk we were whisked off to a beautiful salon where we relaxed with drinks whilst check-in was completed - blissful (not something I normally say about check-in!). The staff were, without exception, some of the friendliest, most helpful hotel staff we have ever encountered. We were going to the Royal Bombay Yacht club for dinner and the concierge offered my husband his spare tie to borrow! We went to a party one night and got toally lost leaving - the hotel sent us a car immediately and liaised with locals to work out where we were.

We decided to spend our last two nights there as well and when we returned found we had been immediately upgraded back to the beatuful old wing - our butler (!) appeared and offered her services - my clothes were ironed, housekeeping made an elephant from handtowels which tickled me pink and our fabulous butler had run a hot bath with rose petals for when we returned from getting lost. The complimentary afternoon tea, drinks & canapes and coffee and cognac in the palace lounge every day were such fun, we got to know the excellent waiters very well and learnt quite a few things too!

Nothing is too much trouble and everybody seems delighted to have you there. We don't normally do 'big' hotels but I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend this hotel as THE place to stay in Mumbai. It is the people that make a place and that is derfinitely the case here - the best staff ever.

Room Tip: Definitely worth paying the extra and staying in the Palace wing.

We stayed in the old Palace on the 5th floor having been upgraded from the more modern Tower wing. There is a complimentary free tour of the hotel which lasted about 45 minutes and was great as we heard the history of the hotel. The room itself and bathroom were exceptional and all the staff brilliant and helpful.

There is tight security to get in (airport style) the hotel and the roo key is needed to activate the lift to your floor.

This hotel was a highlight of our trip everything was perfect the room was a great size and seriously comfy beds!! The prices in the hotel are on the expensive side almost £10 for a single gin and tonic!!! But I suppose you are in the taj after all but as a splurge it's worth every penny
