as always the difference is the Taj service, the property is not so good, but offers good value for money.

very central if the work is in town area

good food, reasonable spread of breakfast.

as the property is old, the rooms etc are not that comparable but still better then many others.

The service is top mark, however the hotel is showing its age. Especially the elevators and some rooms in the 8th floor. Unlike the rooms in the 11th floor which has been renovated.
I had a bad experience with the security where they had the dogs sniffing our shopping which I was uncomfortable with, when sounded my displeasure the security staff excused saying the security machines where out of order.
However this is one of my homely hotels with super staff and the complementary upgrades I get for been a regular and also an inner circle member

WILL I RETURN AGAIN- DEFINETLY.

Room Tip: Try the rooms on the 11th floor as they are recently renovated though the hotel says is different co...

I booked here after a bad experience at a shady hotel..absolutely everything was perfect! Beautiful rooms, great restaurants (3), nice spa (got a massage), and great service.. My only pet peeve is the steep price for Internet which cost me 2000Rs for 3 days..

As a business traveller I expect EVERY business hotel to offer complimentary wifi Internet in rooms as well as public places. The "5 Star" hotels still believe they have the right to charge for this service and sadly they it is only a matter of time till they lose customers to the premium 4 star hotels that offer free wifi. I for one used my iPhone to tether 3G wifi in my room and with the advent of smart phones as the standard issue lesser and lesser folks will require paid hotel Internet. Aside of my grievance with paid wifi I found the bathroom small, with only a walk rain shower, no bath tub nor a hand shower. Bed was comfy room amenities decent, breakfast spread very good. Cabs outside the hotel believe they have the right to rip you off - walk 25 metres and get a metered cab

I recently spent a little over 2 weeks staying at this property. Really loved the quality of service - right from check in, housekeeping, laundry, valet, restaurants and in room dining - it was service with a smile, knowledgeable staff, and always eager to please. Stayed in 2 rooms, one on the 4th floor, and one on the 11th, and the interior was massively different.

Pros:
Exceptional service
Great location
Some of the best restaurants
Decent view from a higher floor
Good room interiors
Excellent variety for breakfast
Decent pool and gym

Cons:
Small rooms - feel a bit cramped for a long stay
Air conditioning - not consistent. Was great on the 4th floor, spotty on the 11th. Woke up occasionally sweating
The Taj Innercircle rewards program doesn't quite seem to be as rewarding as Intercontinental's, or Hyatt's

We experienced a very serious breach of security this evening two girls in religious headgear were visiting the hotel restaurant and managed to get into the. Service stair cases and came up to a high floor and actually slipped a note under the door with contact details and suggestions on what they wanted to do. An additional message was put in the newspaper slot. Upon calling security they took an hour to go thru the CCTV tapes and even contacted the number to be told it was just a prank that the girls were playing. Checking the CCTV other staff were seen going about their business and no one had the hindsight to notice the girls about 16-17 just loitering around. This is a five star hotel and with the heavy security at the gate there is no security at the lifts nor are the lifts equipped with any security features. This is alarming for the fact that these type of hotels are prime targets for undesirables. I will be sending a formal complaint to the management as well.

Extremely courteous staff, excellent clean and tidy rooms and perfect place to feel at home. From reception, house keeping to room service you feel well looked after. My favourite place in Mumbai to enjoy the luxury for being well treated.
