“A Nice Respite from the Hecticness that is Delhi”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The Taj rooms are beautiful. My favorite part of the room is the glassed bathroom with both a tub and a shower.

Service-wise, you are offered fruit and tea or coffee to your room when you first check in, which is a very nice touch.

In regards to the location of the hotel, there isn't much going on around. It is long stretched of roads surrounded by walled in embassy buildings, so there isn't much to look at except for walls.

The hotel is very big with hundreds of rooms, too big for me, but despite this, the overall service manages to make it feel more personal.

One brilliant move on the part of this hotel is the universal power outlets that don't require a power converter (certainly not for American electronics that I had with me). BRILLIANT!

Two negative things: One thing I noticed is that during breakfast, not everyone got the same level of attentiveness and service.

Second negative thing is that at a hotel of this caliber, it is truly irritating to have to be nickeled and dimed in regards to wifi usage. Wifi should be free or already built into the hotel price, not $12 for 24 hours (Jan 20th, 2012). Although the welcome tea is a very, very nice and settling gesture, I would forgo that for free, strong wifi.

Despite this, this is definitely a 5 star hotel, but the two negatives mentioned above and the boring surroundings and the big size of the hotel makes it more of a 4.5 star establishment to me. The hotel is very shielded from the craziness of Delhi outside, which can be a good thing based on your perspective.

We loved this hotel! From the charming turbaned doorman, to the beautiful sari-clad women gracefully greeting us with "Namaste", to the ever-smiling and friendly elevator operator...this hotel is filled with the most gracious, friendly and helpful staff we've ever had the pleasure to encounter! The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms beautiful (we were kindly upgraded to the elegantly lovely Club level with access to a perfectly equipped business center),the swimming pool and grounds were lovely, the restaurants terrific, and the cleanliness was impeccable! What an amazing introduction to India! We hated to leave..it was so perfect! A small example of the caring of the staff...after a few days in India left my stomach feeling a bit queasy, the chef of the restaurant very kindly appeared at our table two evenings in a row, offering to prepare anything that I thought would make me feel better...I was astonished by his sincere concern...a lovely attitude that we encountered so many places on our trip to India!

Room Tip: I can't imagine that there are any rooms that aren't perfect!

I travel a lot in the word but like this hotel there are not some many.
I stay one week in business trip and was like a vacation for me. The services, the food, the atmosphere was like in movies. I will recommend this hotel to everybody.

The finest hotel would be an understatement as the Palace boasts charm, luxury and convenience as it's location is superb. We were on our honeymoon and from the second we entered the Palace Hotel were were greeted like king and queen. Pavalli was our guest relations person and she really was a pleasure and went out of her way to make sure every need was tended to with a smile. She brought a chocolate cake and roses and made sure we had our beautiful turndown service with roses on top of a warm bubble bath waiting for our arrival from dinner.

The breakfast buffet was impressive with a delicious and bountiful arrangement of really good food. If you didn't see something you were looking for they would happily make it for you and once you sit down everything else you desire is brought to you with a smile. We also ate at the House of Ming for dinner and I can't say it was great but maybe we were just not up to it as we had travelled a long way to get to delhi.

We spent two nights here and then went to Varanasi for two nights to then return back to the Palace hotel for another night before we went to Agra. When we returned to the Palace everybody knew our name and greeted us by our last name. Impressive, which is what I can say about every aspect of the Palace Hotel.

Special thanks to Pallavi, already mentioned above. Sandip Sehgal the guest service supervisor, thank you for a beautiful in room dining experience. Aditya Sharma the assistant manager, thank you for taking care of everything, we can not thank you and your staff enough.

Easily one of the best properties in India! Conveniently located in Central Delhi, the Taj Palace can sometimes get overshadowed by its more famous sister in Delhi (The Taj Mansingh). Nevertheless, this is a great hotel , with the right touches of all the important elements : great service, warm and pleasing staff, great rooms, great food and a lobby resembling a museum more than a hotel!

I was travelling to Delhi on a business trip and had to have my passport delivered at the Hotel from the Consulate. Not only did they receive it on my behalf, they also thoughtfully sent it directly to my room.

There is a new section that they have recently renovated and opened - makes for great staying, albeit slightly on the smaller side.

Had continental food (vegetarian) for dinner - easily among the best pastas in the country.

Highly recommended for any traveller visiting New Delhi, especially on business purposes.

Room Tip: They have recently renovated a wing of the hotel - it has some thoughtful touches e.g. master contro...
