“A dream you will never forget”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

All the legends of India in one place only. As you enter the old wing, the magnificent hall makes you feel it. Lavishly decorated with marble and inlays, at every corner you will feel the sense of perfection. The superb annex arcade is worth some walking, just to see the rivers of handicrafted fabrics and luxury items in the finest and spotless shop windows ever seen.Don't miss the bookshop, very well provided of international press and where the ancient shelves' wooden smell will make your browsing like a trip backwards in nineteen hundreds...and if you are so lucky to make the "Taj" your place to stay,you will rest in heavenly comfort, shiny marblework, very well planned furniture and space interaction, and a breathtaking view on the bay. This place should be listed among this world's heritage list, and could well be a destination itself rather than just a stay.If I could give five thousand points review, I would definitely give it to this place!

Fabulous is too small a word to describe the wonderful hotel experience I had at Taj. Right from check in to check out, the time spent at the hotel was simply amazing.. The staff were courteous, smiling, always proactive to serve and above all had fantastic memory, the waiters would remember my preference on breakfast, remembered my name and even tried to save my favourite table on all days..

Not one of the cheapest hotels around yet a stay at the Taj Mahal Palace is surely an experience everyone should try to get, at least once, if not more. The palace wing of the hotel is where one should stay as there are quite a few exclusives for palace guests..

The buffet breakfast had very good spread with multiple choices available, we were also treated to the complimentary evening cocktails and the high tea at Palace Lounge. All of that was a great experience in itself.

I have stayed at the old Raffles Hotel in Singapore which have a same concept as old Raffles and new Raffles but Taj Palace Hotel takes the whole luxury aspect to a new level..

Having stayed at many hotels over the years, I can surely say that the Taj Mahal Palace was the finest I've ever stayed in !!

Room Tip: insist on sea view room

We found it really hard to leave this place even after only three nights in the Tower wing. I felt we got the same exceptional service that we would have got in the Palace wing. It really was amazingly good. The view of the Gateway of India was worth paying for. The breakfast was one of the best with plenty of western and Indian options. The pool was also one if the best hotel pools I've experienced. Take the Heritage Tour. It was way more entertaining than I imagined it would be. Enjoy tea under the swishing ceiling fans and a cocktail or two in the Harbour Bar. This place is an institution and it deserves it's legendary status. We'll be back for sure.
