We visited last year at this hotel for 2 nights and were awestruck by its grandeur. The breakfast spread is vast and amazing. The swimming pool is good along with the spa. It has its old worldly charm more of British era. Good experience. But is mighty expensive!!

Stayed here for five nights on a business trip. Possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The greeting upon arrival- the blessing, service, breakfast and yoga by the pool - this is simply paradise. Turndown service is outstanding - rose petal foot spa. Next time I am in Mumbai I hope it is for pleasure and I will...

We stayed for 2 nights in April and had a wonderful time at this historic, classic and timeless hotel. Great service, beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast and a really memorable experience. Terrific location near the Gateway of India. Reasonably expensive, but in this case well worth the money.

We have the pleasure of staying in the Taj Mahal Palace twice. The service is impeccable. Nothing is too much trouble. We first stayed in a Tower room. The Tower Rooms look a bit stuck in the 70s but they are comfortable. The Palace Wing is a completely different category. Amazing modern rooms with lots of charm and a wonderful...
