“Beyond critisism!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2005

Palace - Truly a great hotel of the world. Huge proportions - massive halls, staircase, rooms. A reminder of by-gone era but here you can still live it and be treated to true luxury. Few hotels as impressive from an architectural point of view. Service was excellent, staff were extremely friendly and professional; nothing was an issue or problem ...what a relief to find an hotel where guests are still treated as guests. Food was good although the Masala Restuarant needs to improve by returning to true Indian food and not something sanatized for visitors. Definitely do not stay in the Tower - not because its bad but because it would be your loss not to enjoy the Heritage wing, the Palace. Request a sea facing room for a great view of the Gateway to India. If you are trying to impress those you are visiting in Bombay, stay here and flaunt it! Enjoy!
