Me and my husband stayed at this hotel in Dec 1st week. The rooms were clean but not luxurious.
The base category room in the palace wing didn't even have a bathtub!!
The welcome was very impressive and we thought it would be a very memorable stay.
But was little disappointed with the services. The staff was not courteous at all. They didn't bother to wish you also if they happen to cross you any time.
The breakfast was also very ok. Grapes were soon out of stock and only 1 live counter for vegetarians.
Overall I would say that they are charging too much for the services they offer.
I would recommend The Oberoi or even Trident for that matter. The staff there is very very courteous and they go out of the way to help you and make your stay comfortable.
Taj Mahal palace hotel is a very over hyped hotel and totally not worth it.
