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...

Mumbai is dreadfully polluted with smog destroying the view of the bay. I would never go back, and it has taken me time to review this famous hotel. It is a beautiful old building with a wonderful staircase, and Massala Craft is a good restaurant. Otherwise grossly overrated, very noisy at night, very poor sleep. The 24 hour restaurant on...

Simply one of the best hotels in the world. Wonderful, palatial public areas and rooms; service that is both professional and attentive; outstanding breakfast in the Sea Lounge; and the best location in Mumbai. You will not regret spending your rupees on this place and I guarantee you will want to come back. The only down side is that food...

The Hilton at the Mumbai Airport was comfort and clean. It wasn't as new and modern as some of the hotels were on this trip, but it was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The staff was delightful. We enjoyed their breakfast.
