The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
Ranked #5 of 489 Hotels in Mumbai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2012

After a lot of deliberation, my to-be wife and I decided to book one of the suites at the Taj Mahal Palace for our wedding night. We arrived late at night, after an exhausting wedding day. To our relief, check-in took less than five minutes and the staff were smiling even at that late hour.

The staff had put in extra effort to decorate the room with balloons, rose petals and other items for our wedding night. They had also put a complementary bottle of wine and a cake as part of the package. Shortly after we entered the room, our butler came in to explain the features of the room. He seemed unaware that it was a newlywed couple, or good sense would have prevailed and he would not have showed up in the first place. Anyways, there were no further interruptions.

The room was very comfortable and had a beautiful view of the Gateway of India. Breakfast the next day was delicious, with a lot of variety. Our second night was just as comfortable. The staff was polite and the hotel had a great vibe overall...very peaceful in the chaos that is Mumbai. Check-out was a breeze and though I live in Mumbai and have been to all the Taj's restaurants multiple times, I was glad that I chose this hotel to stay at during such an important event of my life!

Room Tip: Make sure you take a sea-facing room, the view is worth it!

Right from the time we checked in and were told that we had been upgraded to a Palace wing room till the time we checked out, it was sublime. At reception service was personalised upto being garlanded with Marigolds and getting an "arti" and tikka". The room was breath taking to say the least. Not for nothing is it rated amongst the leading hotels of the world!! The staff was fantastic. Special mention to Viren who took us on a tour of this hotel which is so steeped in history.There is a dedicated lounge for guests in this wing where you can have coffee or tea 24/7 and snack in the evening, all complimentary. They were kind enough to make me a special brew to ease my sore throat.A must stay in hotel for a once in a life time experience.

Room Tip: A sea facing room is best though all rooms are of superlative quality

The ultimate in luxury, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai is definitely the best hotel in the city! Having recovered from the murderous terror attacks that took place two years ago, it has been restored brilliantly and is back with a bang. We stayed in the Bell Tower Suite for our 20th wedding anniversary & it was the last word in gracious living...brilliant locale with service being out of this world..the butler service sor our suite was prompt & friendly. The food in every restaurant is excellent. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: Use the Palace, not the Towers

Enjoyable stay- nice accomodations, while feeling the culture of India. Favorite part was riding elephant a half block from hotel. Gorgeous view. Will always be my choice in Mumbai.

Exquisite architecture and styling. Elegance all around, inside and out. Staff is extremely polite and attentive, almost to the point of being intrusive. Rooms are opulently appointed and everything is extremely functional and of high quality. On-site restaurants had a sufficient variety of food selections for those who don't venture out to local establishments. Location is exceptional, being right across the street from the Gateway to India. A truly pleasant experience!
