We stayed in the Palace, a wonderful experience with outstanding service from every staff member from the bell boys to the restaurant and reception staff. The architecture and interior design and ambiance is beautiful and relaxing. Following a room allocation error by the hotel on check-in at 2:15am we were upgraded - a true demonstration of the honourable customer service....

We have had a great time at this hotel. The interior is superb and there is so much history to the hotel that makes it very special. But it totally depends on which room you book. Starting from the Club Rooms you will get all the amenities such as a room in the historic wing with its beautiful designed rooms,...

Let me be clear. This is a marvellous hotel that's well worth placing on your bucket list. To stay in an iconic hotel and open the curtains in your room to stare down at one of the best known tourist sights in India, India Gate, does life get sweeter? The rooms are large and luxuriously appointed, staff helpful and pleasant,...

The Taj Mahal Palace goes above and beyond, exceeding expectations. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful experience. The location is excellent as well. Close to the Gateway of India and Colaba for some great shopping.

Part of a party of 6 staying here for 2 nights after 10 days of luxury in Goa (see other reviews!) for Leela and Coco Shambhala. As we arrived we were delighted to be told we had been upgraded from our sea view tower block rooms. What a delight - I love an upgrade! We were taken to our rooms...

This is by far the best 5 star hotel I have ever stayed at. The hotel is beautiful and is in an amazing historical location.
