The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
Ranked #5 of 489 Hotels in Mumbai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 January 2014

This is one of the best properties in India and Mumbai. Located at the southernmost tip of the city, this hotel has seen India through the ages. Located bang opposite to the Gateway of India - this is a great place to stay if you are visiting India for the first time.

You can try some of the Indian cuisines here as they are authentic and the chef can make it to suit your taste - which is the best part.

Their rooms and interiors are amazing with great architecture.

An amazing location, an amazing experience, from "A to Z" all have been perfect, thanks a lot Taj, people are perfectly caring, service is unique and simply at its best.
As a simple suggestion, a new lay-out and furniture would enhance the quality of this prestigious hotel.

Amazing, thank you.

We spent 3 nights at the hotel from 22 to 25 December 2013. We had a room on the 19th floor of the Tower side (the rooms on the Palace side are apparently better). The room was a bit oldish. The level of service is good but nothing in particular to mention. Breakfast is best taken outside with view on the pool. The service during breakfast was somehow disorganized and chaotic and the breakfast itself was standard without any highlight. From a general service perspective, the staff has much to learn from the level of service that customers get at The Oberoi

We stayed here for a couple of nights recently, amazing experience, although our Premier Tower room looked a little tired in some corners, the bed, shower and other facilities were all excellent.

We didn't eat in any of the restaurants but if the breakfast was anything to go buy I'm sue it would have been amazing as the breakfast was truly brilliant!

The hotel is in the perfect location to explore Colaba and special mention for the service, all staff were simply excellent, the service was really out of this world, they also let us check-in over three hours early so eternally grateful for this as we had just arrived after an awful overnight coach trip from Goa.

For those who can, this hotel is a great experience when staying in Mumbai.

Masala Kraft is one of the restaurants inside Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai. Masala Kraft is a lovely dining option. The staff are courteous and helped us decide on the order. They were patient enough to explain the specialties in store.
The plates are silver and the utensils are brass. Many foreigners throng the place to catch up with a quick indian version of tomato soup. The restaurant overlooks the swimming pool. For newbies, the restaurant follows dress codes and the tables are to booked well in advance to avoid disappointments.
We were served with lemon grass soup, roti and langar wali dal with fresh steamed rice. We also munched through a plate of sweet platter. Though, a bit on the expensive side- it's worth every penny. It is a definite visit on my cards if i get to visit Mumbai the next time. We were 4 people and the bill was about 7000/-.
