... to a suite - where the curtains were remote-controlled. we got presents from the staff and super-speedy laundry. Their Thai restaurant is the only place I've been where the chef has come out to tell me that our choice of starter was a bit strange (he was absolutely right, and made us a different set of things - as well as what we'd ordered).

I just stayed at the Taj President last week and was completely blown away by the service. I often complain that boutique hotels forget the classic comforts of a 5* yet this hotel proved me wrong. This hotel truly anticipated every need and did everything they could to please the guests. The facilities are great - clean room, electronic shutters, sound system, and cute details like a reminder to-do list at night, free DVD rentals and popcorn. And don't forget the massage chair and portable playstation in the hotel cars! I had a few problems with my room (A/C was noisy, no hot water) but these were fixed immediately and the hotel even offered me a suite for the inconvenience. I got food poisoning on my last day and the hotel manager left me a note asking if he could do anything, got me a doctor on the phone, and even had someone get me some medication. The spa, restaurant, IT, and checkout staff are all equally great. I truly recommend this place for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a hight floor for views of the Bay.

the first option on my trips to mumbai has always been this hotel, since my first visit here. the consistency in standard, promptness in service, surprises to guests, and of course the Taj standards in all aspects makes this hotel, one up among others. The cheerful presence and greetings by Mr Francis, an experienced hand in the restaurant, is just another example of the quality staff

Ticked all the right boxes, Prices inline with an International hotel, may seem pricey for the hotel in India, especially European wines. The breakfast is superb and so are all other F&B outlets.I had phoned & emailed in advance to request and inquire for partner's birthday surprise and was assured of something special but at checkin there was no alert on the reservation and I had to remind Front desk. Got 2 small bday cakes(room service & restaurant), The hotel could have done this a bit better especially as 2 back to back cake is the last thing I wanted. A birthday note from GR, glass of champagne in restaurant, a box of chocs or a small beauty product would have made it really special. The other annoying thing was the numerous extra hidden taxes that got added to all elements of the stay- outlets, spa, accommodation and the staff reaction was to apologise and blame the government which was a bit pointless in a private run chain of hotel

Cannot fault anything with this hotel but agree with all the comments, truly world class service and amazing, rates as one of my top ten in the world and am well travelled.

Yes, the checking of bags at the front is slightly irritating but it's all about security etc, only takes a second.

No one stares at you and they all help you in any way that they can. Special praise to the guys on the gym and spa- loved that drink you made myself and mum.

Breakfast totally amazing and what service..

Cheers again- world class.

Room Tip: A view of the helicopter pad is nice :-p

I was totally bowled over by the level of service I received at my one nightbstay here. I could not recommend the place enough and it will stay my first choice for all future trips to Mumbai. The rooftop pool and stylish Wink bar alone are reasons to come here. The rooms offer all the comfort you would expect from this level of hotel.

I started at the Vivanta by Taj President for the first time and I must say I was pleasantly surprised and thought it was excellent value for money! The location for quite convenient and the staff at the hotel were extremely efficient and helpful. I felt like I was staying at a hotel I had already stayed at before as the staff seemed very friendly and familiar. I will definitely stay there again.
On the flip side, I was surprised how run down the carpeting on the hallways were and also, the shower doors in my room did not shut and so, there was some shower water that leaked into the bathroom.

Room Tip: I chose a room with a sea view but with a smaller bed over the room with a larger bed and I am so gl...
