Everything at the hotel was exceptional. I would undoubtedly stay here again. The room was exceptionally clean and the room was always serviced timely, not to mention again at the turn-down service. One of best showers I have ever experienced.

Just the most luxurious and elegant - welcoming and beautiful place to stay in Bombay right on the water and facing the Gateway of India surrounded by fun streets full of shops and restaurants. Safe and clean. Staff so super friendly it was almost too much :)

During our 29 day India adventure, I always treat my group to a 5 Star experience in an Indian Hotel. And the Taj in Mumbai never fails to totally impress. As soon we enter the scented lobby, the magic begins. The stunning floral arrangements beckon and coupled with a seamless check-in, and a welcome drink and ceremony, how could we... More

Hotel was good, friendly staff but could have been more helpful in the sence that tourist suffered from the currency banned in India. Very elegant hotel, location is perfect close to restaurants, local markets and other monuments. Food was good too, but a little pricey compared to other local restaurants near by.

Was here recently for a quick beer with clients. Very nice view of the gateway, good selection of spirits and wines. They serve you some unique small bites like lotus seeds etc - quite nice. Very friendly and efficient staff as expected from the Taj !!!

A restful, luxurious, and vaguely embarassed getaway from the bustle of Mumbai but still close to all you need. Sitting in the courtyard is like sitting in a James Bond movie. Watch out though for the bill at checkout.

We stayed in the tower first and it was pretty bad for the price point - dated bathroom and disgusting mildew smell. But then we moved to the old palace part of the hotel and it was amazing and the artwork is incredible! I rated my stars somewhere in between because there is such a striking difference between the two... More

I have been to many hotels in my lifetime. But this is one of the most magical I ever stayed at. The service is impeccable. The staff so welcoming and the rooms truly luxurious. We stayed in the old part of the hotel and I can only recommend for rooms there. The breakfast is everything you can ask for. Great... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and had a good time. The check-in process took sometime though the staff was very courteous and seated me in the lounge while it was going on. I stayed in the Palace wing. It is of course a bit old but well maintained. I was really impressed with the beautiful architecture there. It almost... More

This is the best hotel I've stayed at anywhere in the world. Well worth every penny. A comparable hotel in US, if even existed, would be closer to $1,000 a night. The service is unparalleled, the pool alone is worth the money, and they have free history tours for guests each night. Can't say how great this place is. If... More
