There's not much I can add to the accolades except to say: I think it's really worth splurging on the "Palace Wing." It really feels like the Taj Mahal Palace is two hotels: the 1903 grand hotel, with separate reception, separate lounge, separate staff, and the amazing central staircase; and the newer tower that feels like any modern-ish 5* hotel....

Taj Mahal is a class by itself. Friendly, Professional service with a smile from arrival to departure. Staff are very polite and helpful, and always ready to assist in any way they can. Mine was rather a very short stay, but was not the first. Sea Lounge is a place where one can sit and get lost in one's own...

Staying at the Taj means it is easy to tick off one of Mumbai's most famous tourist sights - the place is iconic and steeped in history. Drink at the first bar licensed in Mumbai, chill out beside the large pool, revel in the superb service offered by extremely well trained staff....it would be easy just to stay in the...

we stayed at the taj palace hotel in Mumbai from the 27th December to the 29th December and we booked the superior King bed sea view in the Tower Wing. We were given a room overlooking the Gateway to India which was absolutely breathtaking. The room was of a reasonable standard however the hotel was being renovated and unfortunately this...

This place is stunning inside and out. It looks like a postcard from the outside and inside is filled with beautiful shops, great staff and service, and a few good eating options too! The lobby itself is a nice place to relax.

We stayed on two occasions, once in the main hotel and the second in The Tower. All the rooms were fabulous but would certainly recommend spending a little extra and having a room in the main part of the hotel. Its a very special hotel, with excellent service. Nothing is too much trouble to make your stay special.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 fabulous nights. The architecture was stunning in the older section and the new tower exquisitely ties in the charm with modern building. The staff was friendly but NOT very accommodating, especially compared to the hotels where I stayed in the UAE - this is probably the one down side of this hotel. As one...
