Originally Called the President, This Mumbai heritage hotel is not the Gateway of india location but located in colaba. Its known as the other Taj…
This vintage hotel has a regal lobby, and wonderful coffee shop which gives good pastires too.

The rooms are very nice and one clearly get a feel of a british ambiance in the Taj Vivanta

Must stay place and quite reasonable

My fiancee and myself were looking for a peaceful one day retreat from the family wedding prep madness. Vivanta by Taj was a reference from our common friend, as a non obtrusive hotel. Very peaceful, lovely hotel staff, and our special recommendation for the Konkani restaurant. Especially the wait staff a lovely lady, who has absolute confidence and exemplary serving skills. The food was great and she finished off our dinner with a on the house strawberry cheesecake that definitely put a smile on our faces.

We are planning to come next time for a spa day here, as the spa services here sounded really very attractive. A big thank you to the staff, for all the help and comfort they gave us during our stay.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the sea are beautiful to wake up to!

FIrstly when you hear the word Taj you expect a certain kind of hospitality that the premium cost entitles you to. But this was not what we saw at the hotel.

So our ride into Mumbai was delayed and ew reached at 4 pm rather than 12pm which had already put us in an irritable mood. At the time of booking we were assured that sea facing rooms would be provided based on availabilty. When we did get a room alloted the first one was someting on the 4th floor and city facing. We asked for a higher room and got something on the 6th floor with two single beds ( for a married couple who come to stay this honestly stupid to offer), After a LOT of haggling we finally got a room on the 15th floor with a sea view and went up the lift deighted. But our happiness was short lived. The room was TINY. My bathroom back home is bigger than the room they put us in. Also the view. When someone promisesa sea view we assume we are going to be overloking the ocean ( which is what the Taj site proclaims) but the sea was a good 2 km away from the hotel and the view of the ocean was marred by the diliapadated buildings that were right in front of us. The staff at the reception wre rude and not helpful one bit. We even had to carry our own bags which is something i have never heard off in my 8 years of international and domestic travelling.

The only saving grace of this hotel was the excpetionally warm staff at the restaurant who went over and above to ensure that the breakfast rush did not interfere with their demenour and impeccible behaviour. Kudos to the restaurant staff.

Overall we will probably give this hotel a miss next time and look at other properties at Nariman point like the Oberoi or Trident or even the Taj Lands end property.

Room Tip: Would recommend only sea facing rooms as the rest would look into the city which is someting that yo...

It is at this point that I should stop myself from writing a review on Bombay, and try very hard to keep this review to just this hotel. I did not visit Bombay because I read the book Shantaram, but reading Shantaram made my visit to Bombay all the richer. Now to this fine hotel. For starters it is located in the Colaba Causeway area, which is a wonderful part of south Bombay. My notes tell me that I thought it gave a very good first impression. After sitting in a steel tube from Cape Town to Dubai, waiting for 3 hours and then another steel tube from Dubai to Mumbai (Bombay), first impressions are rather important. I felt I could be happy here, for a very long time. The reception area was clean and well staffed. Our group of four were efficiently assisted and issued room cards. The rooms themselves were exceptionally clean, well appointed and modern. Decently sized without being either too small or too big. A large, comfortable, clean bed awaited me later that night. Our group of 4 have traveled the world together and the older we get the more particular we get. It is therefore important to note that this hotel did not receive one negative comment from any of us, not one. That is unheard of in our group as it is very hard to please 4 diverse people at the same time, and one or two of us are quite picky.

Casting my eye once again over my notes they read that I thought the shower was great, which is not a compliment I give out easily, so it must really have been a decent shower. Furthermore I noted that the staff throughout the hotel were some of the friendliest staff I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with. Not only were they friendly but they were also knowledgeable of the area and activities as well as being very helpful with advice when asked.

All in all its quite simple. When I return to Bombay, and I will, I shall be staying once again at the Vivanta by Taj President.

Well appointed hotel in a location convenient to South Mumbai attractions.

Service was great during the stay and I have never seen such friendly and helpful room attendants who enquired if there was anything additional required, no request was too difficult. Room service was fast and fresh, breakfast had excellent variety and there was good attentive service from the staff in the food outlets.

Free wifi in the foyer (at least) would be helpful and a nice touch but other than that, an enjoyable, good value stay.

Have stayed at this hotel twice in 2012, very late for the review, but need to stay both the times was fantastic.
The staff at check in and check out was excellent. There was a goof up with my booking via expedia, but that was sorted out within minutes and i was escorted to my room.
The rooms were nice and spacious and did not lack any thing.
The Hotel over all was clean, Was worth the money paid.
