This hotel is absolutely wonderful. The service is first class and the location is near the tourist sites in south Mumbai. I highly recommend the hotel restaurants. The only downside, is he beggars/touts know it houses the upper class tourist and are immediately on you the first step you take past security.

Room Tip: Try the Lebanese restaurant on the top floor.

Beautiful hotel - perfect location - decorated with beautiful old furniture and perfect service. Please do book a room facing the Gateway of India (not to be confused with the gate of india which is in Delhi)
Love the inner courtyard / pool area

The place to be if you are happy to spend the money, but it will take you hours to go from the airport to the hotel as it is all the way in the south

Room Tip: Please do book a room facing the Gateway of India

We stayed for a week at the Taj Mahal, partly on business, mainly on holiday - there is nowhere like it, superb location and the staff are so attentive. It really is a class apart. It is a little noisy at the front palace rooms facing the India Gate but this is India! We asked to be moved to a quiet location and hey presto - all done. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I would always try to stay at a Taj property in India, I stayed at quite a number, they are all outstanding. Staff in the business centre - excellent, there is nothing you cannot get done here. There are a lot of good restaurants a few minutes walk, and taxis are easy to find, right in front of the hotel. It is a 45 minute taxi run to the airport but it is well worth it to stay in such an iconic hotel and the best Western friendly area of Bombay where it is safe to wander around day and night.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms over look the pool quad or at the rear of the hotel, of course they lack as good a vie...

The service at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai is exceptional. From the moment you walk in and even after you have left. Staff of all levels are only too happy to help and you are treated like a guest that genuinely matters. The restaurants are great, especially Wasabi and the Chinese restaurant. I didn't manage to go to the Souk but have heard it too is exquisite with breath taking views of the city. Little touches of the hotel make it a truly unforgettable experience and I will definitely be staying there again! The location is great with so many hidden gems around Colaba.

Room Tip: sea facing of course!

I stayed there ..and what more can be memorable than on the anniversary of the most shameful day in Indian History... only to realise it once I went in.

the rooms were amazingly done .. in retro style... cozy and welcoming. the food as usual ... the strength of taj grou... and nothing can beat their hospitality.

The view to the historic gateway of India and the candle lit street filled me as my heart joined the heart of millions of Indian in remembrance of those who paid the price of terrorism that fateful day.

What a terrific experience! Stayed in the Tower suite at the hotel. Absolutely superb. The incredible view overlooking the Gateway, the tasteful decor, brilliant food in the restaurants and staff who were faultless in their service. Nothing was too much.
For the most beautiful hotel in India, this is the one! So beautiful!
