“Pure luxury...”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Me and my family stayed at Taj for 2 nights. They are a very helpful hotel. Both of the towers are very beautiful. We were upgraded straight away from the palace wing. The room was palacial, although the A/C made it smell a bit damp. The restaurant was called The Zodiac Grill. The waiter, Dominic, was amazing. The food was extremely tasty, although there isn't a great selection for kids. The beds were very comfortable. The staff were very good and well trained. Breakfast was great and the food and beverage manger was very helpful. This is the better hotel out of this and the Oberoi and you should definitely stay at this amazing hotel.

Room Tip: The one in the palace wing

For people who have peeped into the South Asian kingdom culture and managed to catch enough glimpses through the movies, think about living it. The wide reception area would be the court hall with concierge greeting you to the Old Taj to the left and new Towers to the right. Since the Old taj rooms are quite expensive compared to the Towers, you are always allowed to catch a glimpse of the famous renovated Grand Staircase re-opened by Ratan Tata himself after the Mumbai shootout. Leaving alone the extravagance of architecture which we can go laurels and not stop, the breakfast just deserves the equal praise. With a spread covering knowingly or unknowingly covering over 10 cuisines, there is nothing more one can ask for except a grandous appetite.

Room Tip: For heaves, the sea side view from the Towers

Unlike other five star hotels, we find the Taj just makes it so easy. We are a family of five (three young children) so are always faced with the uncertainties of whether to book one suite with two rooms or two interconnecting rooms. Usually, the websites don't cover this anomaly, so we need to ring or email the hotel directly. This always seems to be too hard for many hotels. Anyway, the Taj were great in helping us chose the best option for us which was 2 interconnecting rooms in the Tower. As it was our first time to Mumbai, we arranged an airport pickup (which was fantastic) and were greeted at the hotel by a very helpful young lady who took us directly to our rooms (no check in required). To our surprise, we were upgraded to the Palace sea view rooms which overlooked the Gateway to India. The rest of our stay was relatively flawless. The children were absolutely spoilt by the staff and we were pleasantly surprised every day by the random thoughtfulness of everyone from the concierge, waitstaff, butler, housekeeping, etc. We think it's certainly worth the money for a few days of being treated like a valued customer.

The Taj Mahal Palace is a hotel in which I would be delighted to stay in again.
My room was in the palace and I must say it was excellent. The room was quite large with an foyer connecting to the bathroom and the room with a desk area and a large bed. All of the space was put to good use with amenities hiding in every drawer. The bathroom itself was wonderous, outifitted almost entirely in marble. The room overall was a pleasant area to spend time and there was never a minute I spent there not thinking that I was being spoiled.
The rest of the hotel was just as nice with a fantastic pool and a lobby with flower arrangements that never ceased to amaze me. The sea lounge is on the first floor and is where I had my breakfast every morning, it was very good for providing some energy for a day of sightseeing, especially while I was sick. For palace guests there is also a lounge on the ground floor which serves tea in the afternoon and alos has snacks available throughout the day.
The area around the hotel is very interesting to walk and if you go just a little way back behind the hotel there is a horde of vendors which are very fun to haggle with.
The service of course is also impeccable, one concierge in particular, Viren, was very helpful. He leads a heritage tour of the hotel in the afternoon which shows you rooms which otherwise you may not see and explains a lot of history about the hotel.
Overall, the Taj Palace provided a fantastic stay which I highly reccomend.

Room Tip: Rooms differ between the tower and the palace.
