From the moment you step inside there is a feeling of being in one of the grand hotels of the world. Breakfast is amazing and even though the rooms in the tower don't have superb views, the rooms are lovely.

Before traveling to Mumbai I had been recommended to explore the adventure of being at the Taj Mahal... Found great deals on internet and here I am: what a fantastic experience!

Hotel staff was very cordial and helpful. Location for break fast at roof top as well as the location of sea view is good. Pool side location is also enjoyable. Lobby area is nice. Restaurants have good choice of food though more choice for soups would be preferred.

The tower rooms are nothing special and as a matter of fact the doors and furniture could use upgrading. The prime point for us to come and spend a larger budget to stay here was simply for ease of location and ability to be car free for a few days. In this it did deliver. The service at this hotel...

My fiance and I visited Mumbai whilst we was on a short day away from our cruise ship. Unfortunately we didn't stay in the hotel but still could admire its beauty and grace with some fantastic history in the area. We definitely would love to come back and stay in this grand palace of a building.

The Taj is quite simply the best hotel chain I've ever come across. The service is flawless, the rooms are beautiful, the restaurants fantastic. Have stayed in the Taj in Kerala as well as a couple of times in Mumbai and it is enough to make me want to holiday in India every year! Cannot recommend it highly enough.

The Taj Palace has a rightful place in the list of world's best hotels: service is impeccable, rooms and lobby are beautifully appointed, the beds heavenly. Do yourself a favor and stay in the Palace/Heritage section. In addition, it is located in south Mumbai where you have access to great restaurants and shopping right outside your door. The architecture in...
