“One of the best hotels”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

I had gone to this hotel for attending the Windows 8 Hackathon in May.
The hotel is splendid. I was mesmerized by its beauty and cleanliness. And the hotel staff is very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is so big that one can get lost in it too. At each and every turn, there are people to guide you in case of any emergency. Looking forward to staying in the hotel on further visits.

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the Gateway of India. The view is amazing.

From the welcome as you step through the doors of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, to the quick check in procedure and swift passage to your room, the Taj staff really do personify experience and excellence.
Great food, albeit expensive in the hotel, but the location is prime with a multitude of excellent (and much more reasonable) restaurants nearby, which do not charge the Luxury Tax that 5 star hotels are obliged to.
Perfect for tourists seeking an excellent luxury base from which to explore South Mumbai, to business people seeking a prime location and amenities for every need.
An excellent pool and spa also!

Room Tip: Tower rooms are much cheaper than Palace Wing rooms, go for a higher floor (10th upwards) and reques...

The best hotel I have ever stayed in...and I have stayed in quite in few both in India and abroad....it's the best Taj property as well.

Everything from the reception to the bell desk service to the rooms and the minute attention to all details and needs of ours were taken care of and addressed to. Something which I greatly appreciate. Even if they couldn't solve our query, they came back with an apology and it was prompt and courteous with suggested alternatives.

The food was awesome as well in all the restaurants.

Overall, a grand and fulfilling experience.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with sea view on higher floors in the tower wing - it's not to be missed

We booked this hotel for our weeklong stay and it was a memorable one. My birthday fell during the stay in the hotel and must say they really made the day a special one, a nice cake, flowers and a special spa :). Located in south mumbai, it is just 5 mins walk from colaba market, marine drive is also nearby. Step out of the hotel n you see Gateway of India. Has very good restaurants, a must try is 'Souk', it serves Mediterranean cusine and a good one.

The Taj family. The place. The warmth. The feeling is something else. The restaurants are top notch. The rooms are homes. The friendly staff just makes up for every moment spent. The Taj experience is something to take back home. And it is one of Mumbai's and India's finest export.
