We stayed in the tower first and it was pretty bad for the price point - dated bathroom and disgusting mildew smell. But then we moved to the old palace part of the hotel and it was amazing and the artwork is incredible! I rated my stars somewhere in between because there is such a striking difference between the two... More

I have been to many hotels in my lifetime. But this is one of the most magical I ever stayed at. The service is impeccable. The staff so welcoming and the rooms truly luxurious. We stayed in the old part of the hotel and I can only recommend for rooms there. The breakfast is everything you can ask for. Great... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and had a good time. The check-in process took sometime though the staff was very courteous and seated me in the lounge while it was going on. I stayed in the Palace wing. It is of course a bit old but well maintained. I was really impressed with the beautiful architecture there. It almost... More

This is the best hotel I've stayed at anywhere in the world. Well worth every penny. A comparable hotel in US, if even existed, would be closer to $1,000 a night. The service is unparalleled, the pool alone is worth the money, and they have free history tours for guests each night. Can't say how great this place is. If... More

Located opposite Gateway Of India, this hotel has been an Iconic architecture in the history of India's hospitality Industry. Must visit for any foreigner visiting Mumbai. You get a magnificent view of Arabian Sea from your rooms and restaurants. Some very good restaurants for celebrating personal events like bday and anniversary. Overall a great hotel! 👍

On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to be told that we were to be upgraded to a suite in the Palace Wing and then presented with a birthday cake to celebrate my wife's birthday. There is so much to see and do at the hotel that a two night stay just isn't enough and the staff could not do enough... More

Arriving at just about checking in time we were greeted expertly by Ninod who gave us a very pleasant surprise by announcing that we had been given an upgrade to a suite in the Palace side of the hotel. Unfortunately there was so much to take in at the décor and ambiance of the hotel that much of what he... More

You may think that India is noisy, crowded and dirty, which it can be, but this is a perfect place to imagine that it isn't. With wonderful views from the bay-front rooms and breakfast room and absolutely impeccable service the not insubstantial cost suddenly seems worth it. It extends your tourist day from the moment that you arrive until you... More

Wonderful hotel, spotlessly clean with polite, helpful staff. We stayed in the original Palace wing and were very pleased with our quiet large room which had plenty of seating, excellent lighting and all amenities in the bathroom. We didn't have a view of the Gateway to India but it didn't matter. We ate in Wasabi Japanese restaurant and Masala Kraft... More

We stayed here for our last few nights in India. We were treated like royalty from the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off at the airport. Food was great - you have to try the sushi! Butler was very helpful and obliging. Really enjoyed chilling at the pool and the service of the poolboys... More
