We found the Taj Palace at Mumbai lived up to all expectations. Staying in the Palace wing was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The facilities and especially the Chinese restaurant were excellent. Couldn't be a better location for sightseeing Mumbai

The food was great and the bill was surprisingly reasonable . To have a drink and a meal was my wife's and daughter's dream, hence we made the trip to this hotel after visiting the Elephanta Caves. But the staff attitude needs re-examination. We were asked to move away from the seating area because we were not staying at the...

We stayed in this iconic sea facing landmark hotel in South Mumbai. After having spent a long hot day in the huge, chaotic and over crowded city of Mumbai, our expectations for staying a night in the expensive flagship of Taj hotels were rather high. They were all more than fulfilled. We had a wonderful and  memorable stay.  Reception was personal, friendly and quick....

I have visited recently Bombay first time after 25 years. My partner has never been there before. So, to get him hooked on India and introduce him at first smoothly I have decided to book our first night in Taj, which I have seen before once years ago but heard about it a lot of good things. And it did...

We could not fault the hotel and its service - 5 star luxury all round and a fabulous position. The staff were fabulous, especially the room staff. Great harbour view from the Taj Palace building. However we had a really disappointing meal in the hotel's Lebanese restaurant "Souk". It lacked flavour, the moussaka was bland and luke warm, and a...

Out of our price bracket,but well worth a visit for a drink,the inside is totally amazing and the staff attentive,as I said earlier a bit pricey for us,but I'm glad we saw it in all it's splendour. It's hard to believe that it was attacked eight years Go.

A huge building located in the coastal road opposite Indian Gate and close to all kind of services including local, middtirian and international restaurants. The hotel is very luxurious and provides excellent services to all guests.

The iconic Taj Mumbai for us feels like coming back home. As always, we stayed in the tower, which is the modern version of the adjacent classic Taj. The view from above over The Gate of India, the sea beyond it and the sunrise over the gate is magnificent. This time we were on the 10th floor and upon arrival...

We stayed in the towers part of this hotel and were not disappointed. Totally amazing hotel and worth every single rupee paid. Room looking out onto Gateway to India is something that will always stay with me. Fabulous. Food at Taj is amazing - breakfast choice best I have ever had. Can't recommend it enough.
