“Very nice hotel with great restaurants”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights including New Year's eve. It's everything you expect from a top hotel: marble everywhere, nice "rain" shower, fantastic views from both sides of the hotel, pool/spa, etc. The restaurants are great (the Italian and Thai restaurants are the best Italian and Thai restaurants in Mumbai), and a wonderful buffet breakfast was included. We took the opportunity every morning to stock up on fresh fruits. They even gave us a free bottle of champagne in our room for New Years - a nice touch. And of course, the staff is friendly and very helpful.

The only thing I wish they had was free wi-fi. The rates for wi-fi and the business center were somewhat expensive... but I suppose that's what you get when you stay in an expensive hotel like this!

Unfortunately we only had one night in this hotel, I wish we could have stayed far longer. The greeting was friendly, the staff efficient and the foyer stunning. However in my experience behind stunning facades, hotel rooms can be very ordinary and shabby. Not in this case! Our room was spotless, had a large flat screen TV and every comfort you could want, along with nice little touches like excellent quality bathroom supplies, complimentary mineral water and even a little box of chocolates. Staff could not have been more helpful and made me feel that they were genuinly pleased to help. We had an excellent meal in the Trattoria and although the wine was expensive it was of fine quality. When I return to India as I plan to do, I will certainly seek out Taj hotels.

Recommended for business. This hotel is very expensive for the country standards. Nice room with flat tv and surround system!!?? The three restaurants and one bar inside the hotel is a good choice if you are not crazy enough to go out in the city night time. View of Gateway of India at night is magnificent.....

Our first trip to India started with a few days to settle in Mumbai and I chose the Taj President to do that. As a leisure customer, the location was good, within easy walking distance of the Colaba Causeway and all south Mumbai. The room was very pleasant and well equiped. The staff and service was supurb as one would expect from a hotel of this calibre and we made good use of the pool during the three nights we stayed. We did not use te restaurants as we chose to eat out while in Mumbai, but they looked very inviting. We had a couple of drinks in the cocktail bar, and it was a nice place to start the evening off. I have stayed in many 4* hotels that have not lived up to expectation, but this exceeded my expectations and set us off on our adventure well equiped. The only down side is that if you get a taxi from directly outside the hotel, you will be charged excesive fares because of where you are staying. Walk 50 meters down the road and half your fares if IR50 is worth the effort!

I traveled to the Taj President Mumbai in July, 2008. It was a very clean and sophisticated hotel in the heart of Mumbai. The food was fantastic, there are several restaurants, and the staff tries their best to accomodate the guests in everyway possible.

The business center is located on the floor below the lobby. There are several computers and internet access. They do charge for their services. The staff is also available (for a fee) to assist with business projects and document assembly and copying, if necessary.

I would recommend this property.
