We stayed in the Taj Mahal Hotel for 3 nights at the start of our stay and 2 nights at the end of our stay. Overall it is a great hotel. The lobby is stunning as are all the amazing artefacts which are sympathetically displayed. We had a few hiccups on our first stay, but at the end of the trip we were put in a renovated room which was absolutely stunning. Had we been in this room from the start we would give them 5 stars. The Restaurant Varq is one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in. Stunning contemporary Indian cuisine. Amazing decor, fabulous staff and a lovely chef who comes and speaks to you. We had our first and last meals in India in this restaurants, and on the last night they made it incredibly special. I would definitely recommend a stay here. One person deserves special mention, but I'm gutted I cannot remember his name. One of the security guards stands at the lift and gave us such warm welcomes every time we went up in the lift. He was also the only who welcomed us back to the Taj Mahal Hotel. He remembered which floor we were staying in and always had the correct button in the elevator pressed by the time we went in.....a truly lovely guy. Great pool also.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights for business and had a good opportunity to try it out. We were VIP guest so the welcome at the hotel was exquisite. We given flowers, and escorted to the room, receive welcome drink by order (good mint tee, served perfectly). Rooms are very very nice, with everything one needs (pillow menu - 10 different kinds of pillows, soaps, conditioners and all needed bathroom stuff, laundry bags, complementary shoe shine, twice a day room cleaning, 2 different daily newspapers, good night rug service, slippers, complementary water twice a day,... and much more -- seriously everything one can even dream of.) Oh, one more thing: my scale was broken, so I called guest services to repair it... it was taken care of in less than 10 minutes.

Reception, very good, kind receptionists, also concierge. Only: for check out they make you go to a different desk to pay and then go back to reception desk,... a little bit confusing.

I did not try their pool or spa, but my colleagues told me it is very nice.

Restaurants:

1) Machan (open 24/7): simply one of the best breakfasts that I have ever had. Of course with Indian flavor, but all continental things to choose from, omelets, corrosions of several different kinds, yogurt, and the best: fresh fuit, especially MANGO. Only missing thing for a 5-star hotel: a glass of champaign for breakfast, but I can live without that. Oh, and coffee was better than in many hotels in europe. Seriously good!

3) Ricks: good mood lighting, good selection, a bit overprices and all staff was competing who will serve a fancy VIP group that came, while forgetting the there were other guest there too... but it happens.

4) House of Ming: Good food, nicely furnished restaurant, but service could be more Chinese... not so european. Still: good food.

5) The Grill Room: we had a private dinner there, Indian Food: simply one word: THE BEST EVER. Congrats guys, this is really good food up there on the top floor. And the view is amazing.

Only one negative thing:
In a 5-star hotel, I expected to have unlimited access to Fee High Speed Internet at all times, not that I have to sign in all the time and pay 12 EUR per day. Come on, you are 5 star hotel.

Stayed there at the end of our trip to India with my wife. After having stayed in the Maharadja Palaces this hotel seemed a little more "simple" (not in a negative way!).

Service is very good and all the staff is very nice and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the swimming pool is very big and very nice. In the middle of the town you still have the feeling of being a little bit in a bubble. All in a pleasant experience. Food was good, we had diner in our room for the last time and the staff made this dinner very pleasant by setting up a nice table with candles and all the "romantic" accessories.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Our rooms were clean, comfortable beds, excellent showers with great water pressue and plenty of hot water. The rooms looked as if they had been recently renovated. Plenty of bottled water was provided as were those free chocolates that I like to receive when on vacation in a nice hotel. The obvious security was reassuring. We ate lunch at the main hotel restaurant and had excellent Indian food. In fact, the local residents would also come to have lunch there. We ate dinner twice at a nearby restaurant, Gulatti, which was clean, inexpensive and had oustanding food. The hotel shop was outrageously expensive for imperfect local crafts. The pashmina shawls are less expensive outside of India. Finally, this is very much a business hotel where the majority of guests are business people. We chose to stay here based on positive Tripadvisor reviews. We would go back.

The hotel meets the standard of a five star hotel. The service is excellent, everybody is very friendly and willing to help (sometimes it felt a bit much). The rooms are large with good amenities but nothing out of the ordinary.
