Reviewed August 29, 2014

I stayed in this hotel for one day on a business trip. The ambience of the room is very good. Food served in restaurant and in room dining is very good. Very courteous staff. Truly it is a home away from home.

Room Tip: In general the room upkeep and upholstery is very good. Worth taking a try.

Stayed two nights as tourists in Mumbai. Given early check in which was great and on the third day charged 25% of room rate for evening check out. All very amenable. Rooms a bit small but adequate in such a big city. View over bay from 14th floor made up for this. Strange decor which looks a bit dated but basically clean. Lifts are slow but apparently seeing to this. Breakfast substantial and varied. Ate once in hotel restaurant which was excellent and reasonably priced for this kind of venue. Ordered a la carte five dishes between us but it was too much and we eat well! Also came back mid day for a coffee in cafe. All good. Lots of people were eating lunch there.
Pool is rather overlooked but would suit families. Had a massage at spa which was fantastic and very professional. Hotel is well located for local shopping areas. Safe to wander about. Do visit fish market - amazing but not keen on you taking photos. Took Reality tour to the Dharavi Slum. Just two of us - leaflet in foyer. This was fascinating and a real experience. Would recommend. Again non photos. If you don't like aircon (like me), walk just outside to get a black and yellow cab- cheaper as well. Overall, a really positive stay. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking over bay.

This is definitely one of the best property I've visited which is well suited for business traveler. Right from the check-in to rooms to bar; everything is excellent. The staff is very courteous and corporative. 'I think' one of the senior management personal incidentally was in check-out counter during our check-out and was very receptive for our feedback. Needless to say; the break fast spead in the morning is amazing.

overall a very good property in heart of mumbai

We stayed in the hotel for a week and the staff made it perfect! They are so attentive, helpful and kind! The facilities are amazing, the location very good.
The breakfast is great and very complete.
What really made our stay was how welcome we felt and how personalised the attention was.
Cannot praise it enough and will definitely stay there again of we come back to Mumbai.

Loved the stay. We could even check out at 4pm. Good Internet speed. Very clean. Not the best pool but I think the weather we had made it feel a bit worser than it actually was, I mean, the view from the pool were pretty cool. Awesome western breakfast (almost too good). Good location. The girl employees at the reception were very cute and spoke perfect English. Not the cheapest hotel though.

Thank you for the stay.

Room Tip: Ask if you can have a later check-out time.

We recently took three seaview rooms at the President on our trip to Mumbai. It's a good hotel with mostly excellent staff and good food options.
A few gripes to get out of the way first. As we were a party of six (including two elderly ladies and two kids) we asked Taj to arrange for a vehicle which was big enough to drop all of us at the hotel.
The driver duly met us, but barely spoke to us and it was to our horror that the Rs89,000 (yes Rs89,000) fee that Taj pocketed did not even include the fee for the porters. Now we know what daylight robbery feels like! Not a great start after a 10 hour overnight flight with kids and Grandmas in tow! And it must be said the vehicle was pretty scruffy and not what we had envisaged for that price.

Arriving at Taj we were also surprised to be charged an additional Rs25,000 per night for a camp bed for our daughter. Whilst I felt this was a tad steep what really irritated me about it was the it was a grotty bit of furniture which had really seen better days. Come on Taj, if you insist on charging that at least take a look at the furniture you are providing for the fee! Time for a refresh.

Our rooms were smart enough if a little tired, but the shower door leaked dreadfully which meant we were often paddling in water in the bathroom. NOT GOOD AT ALL.

Our final, major gripe: The third lift was out for the entire duration of our five night stay. Why a multinational like Taj couldn't get it fixed is beyond me. It often took an age to get a lift and was a serious irritant.

Gripes aside there are some very good elements to this hotel. Generally (apart from the occassional frosty receptionist) the staff are really helpful, professional and kind. The buffet breakfast was lovely with lots of choice. We enjoyed dinner at the Konkan cafe twice as the food was so delicious. We also liked the location very much and found it pretty easy to stroll around.

Our children enjoyed the swimming pool and the staff down there were excellent. (There are some loose tiles at the edge of the pool, parents beware).

On balance -- gripes aside - we had a good stay.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room. It was a great view and worth the price.

What can I say, excellent hotel , great staff, nice location.They allowed us to check in at 9 AM because we had a small baby with us though our double room was not ready they gave us a twin for the interim (Driga at front desk was excellent). I insisted that the baby's laundry be done in two hours and sure enough it was delivered on time all small requests (extra mattress , duvets etc) were completed , breakfast was excellent and had everything you could think of there too my baby's needs were looked after. The pillow menu was an added bonus a decent collection of dvd's (though not everything was available) room service food was ok, excellent pool and health club (great attendant in Siddharth) The only issue I had was that there are only two lifts and sometimes only one would work which would result in waiting for eternity for them, on check out I had to take all my bags down myself since the bell hop could not make it upstairs since lifts were not working again but other than that ,I will definetly stay here again
