5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The BEST hotel I have ever stayed in. I cannot overstate how amazing the place is. The staff is phenomenal. If you can stay here even once in your lifetime, do so.

Everything was phenomenal. Hospitality was out of this world! They have set the bar extremely high for every other hotel in the world.

This hotel was an absolute dream!!! Wow!! Everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend everyone to stay here. 5 star rating!

the half board was poorly explained and poorly executed. additionally it was unclear when booking that a second adult in smae room was subject to an additional charge. in 30 years of travel 5 total weeks of travel in India over 2 years I've never seen such a thing. the half board was supposed to be 2 meals a day one of which was breakfast. period. instead it resulted in being a 2000 INR credit per person for the nob-breakfast meal. There was never an explanation at the property restaurants about this policy nor was an alternate menu, etc. offered. Bottom line is that I felt this was the worst 5 star hotel I've stayed at in India and those hotels include: Oberoi Jaipur, Taj Delhi, Leela Delhi, Taj Bangalore, Leela Goa, Ritz Carlton Bangalore. Look elsewhere in Mumbai for a 5 star experience.

Amazing hotel ... Drinks and wine and super expensive

Upon checking in, I was upgraded from the tower to a palace club room. The view in the room overlooked a side street. The best thing about my stay was the way I was treated by the staff. I’ve stayed in several palaces in the Middle East and the Taj Mahal Palace just triumphs all other hotels I’ve stayed in. The service here was outstanding. Every single staff member greeted me everyday, even if they were in the midst of doing something of going somewhere. These people really try hard to make your stay amazing. On my last night, I was treated to a Maharaja Bath by the Housekeeping Manager. My room didn’t have a bath tub so they were able to arrange for it in a different room. I just cannot say enough good things about the staff and the gorgeous property— it just surpassed any hotel stay I’ve ever had. Highly recommend this palace :)

My teenaged daughter and I spent five nights at the Taj and loved every minute of it. If and when I return to Mumbai I will stay here. Highly recommended for location and luxury.

I wanted to experience the history and aura of the Tajj but resisred spending an additional $100;for a Palace room. Glad. I did! Pool are common to both buildings. Had a magnifcent sea view instad of a “backroom” at the Palace., unless money is no object, save the extra money and buy a great dinner, or better yet, tip the staff edtra well. The hospitality is nothing short of perfect!

I have stayed here in the past. I was not offered a room in the nice old original section. Instead I was put in a room in the newer tower. Not bad but not like the original. The part that was not good was the construction that was occurring on a floor above me from 10am to 10pm. All the staff could do was apologize and aske to move us.

First class hotel wonderful staff and amenities. Great stay at a great hotel.

This is our second time staying at this gorgeous hotel. The staff is amazing and wonderful. The restaurants are delicious. It was my husband's 70th birthday. We stayed at the hotel after a tour of Southern India. We were treated like royalty! Can't wait to go back!

True luxury hotel. Very relaxing. Beautiful amenities and views. Terrific!

Service is awesome, ocean view is amazing, best place in mumbai.

This is the first time I stayed at this Historical Hotel and I must say, Overall I was satisfy with my stay over there.

If you really want to spoil yourself then this is it. My husband got me two nights here as a birthday gift for my fortieth and you really cannot compare it to anywhere else. I had the cheapest room deal in the tower and still felt like royalty. I can't even imagine what staying in the older even fancier wing is like. If you are on a trip to India and want an experience go here and also to high tea in the hotel.

It is one of the best hotels in India. The service is great. The room was excellent. The bathroom is spacious and nice. We also got an upgrade to the Palace room since the tower is under renovation.

This is a very overrated hotel. Historic, yes. And, if you've made it all the way to Mumbai, I suppose you might as well try it out for a day or two if you can afford the price of admission. The public spaces aren't particularly grand or large (the lobby in the tower side is fairly large, and everyone congregates there the ornamental one in the palace is tiny). Food is OK, but outrageously expensive but most non-locals will pay rather than deal with Mumbai. The Harbour Bar, which dates from 1933 and which I had visited in the past, has been modernized with white seating and a bit of glitz, losing any sense that it is Mumbai's oldest watering hole. Now, it's just another slick Mumbai bar charm, history? Gone. I stayed in the tower, room 1404 with a very nice view of the Gateway of India. On entering the room, it smelled musty and felt damp I thought this might pass by running the AC. Not so. The next day I asked for a dehumidifier, which they installed. This tells me they are aware of this dampness issue. The tower is old, so carpet is worn (clean, but worn), paint is chipped and dirty in spots. The window is doublepane but not terribly tight, so you'll get noise from the Gateway late into the night. Also, there is an extensive renovation of the tower ongoing, so there is pounding and scraping all day, from early to quite late. So, if you want to rest in your room after hitting the streets, you will have a hard time relaxing. Staff is for the most part excellent there are some problems in billing and reservations. Not so much with the staff, as with the technology and bureaucracy, I suspect. I was also duped by one of the fellows who lines up taxis. I needed a taxi to go to the Trident Hotel on Nariman point. I know not that it should cost less than 100 rupees for a non-AC car. The Taj staffer quoted me 1000 rupees for an AC car, which I accepted as I wasn't aware of costs at that point. Of course, he was. Don't know if this is an isolated problem, or one across the hotel. The pool is a delight, and a fine place for a drink. Although there are plenty of smokers around, so that detracts. Won't be back and can't recommend.
