The Taj Mahal Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
the bed is great, but the room needs vacuuming. The design of the hotel is awkward where if you want to go to the spa or to the gym, you need to walk across the lobby in your bathrobe.... The hallway of the guest floors is rather dim...
My first time in Delhi Taj and came there for business, felt really good. Both the place and staff were welcoming. Loved the way they presented each of the elements in the room. Very Indian and felt like pampered :)
I am very surprised - and disappointed - by the hotel's reaction in front of my daughter's food poisoning ; I really hoped that they would review their flows but, unfortunately, and despite of my comment sent to the hotel's management team, it was not the case ; doctor fee : I hoped - and thought that it was obvious - that the hotel would ( at least) take care of the medical fees… but I noticed that they charged it on my bill (!?) ; as I mentioned to various employees in the hotel, my daughter had a food poisining because of a plate eaten at the hotel's Chinese restaurant ; I highlighted that, as foreigners, we NEVER ate anywhere else than at the hotel and that my daughter and I had different meals ; therefore, we pointed out - immediately - that it could only be the "rice with lamb" (which was very obvious, when my daughter was throwing up…) ; … but nobody did nothing, except smiled and said " we are sorry" ; On the top of it, another subject was extravagent : the telephone charges and taxes - every day !? - for the inside hotel calls; it was a bit of a surprise, knowing that, everywhere, in the world - London, Tokyo, Mexico or else - I never paid for the calls to the reception (to get towels, food or else) ;
We stayed here two separate nights during our trip in Feb and March. Rooms are excellent and the overall service is outstanding. Restaurant has a nice wide variety of food choices including Western food. One night we did have a large Wedding outside our window but noise was not that bad. Limited grounds to walk around on since it is in the middle of town.
We were travelling with my son and daughter in law. I am a child of the Raj times and can remember staying here as a child and teenager. Very keen to show off this hotel. All I can say we found it as grand as I remembered. We were so lucky as we had been upgraded to the original building and our rooms were large and overlooked the Gateway to India. This building is a history in itself! The staff and so attentive and professional. The décor and flowers are amazing. The verandah where we sat with our nimboo panis are just as I remembered. Wow! Amazing place. Just think of its history when you stay here. It is unique. I think it would give any world luxury hotel a run for its money! surprised at some of the reviews. We all voted it as a unique and amazing place and I certainly would not want to stay anywhere else. Food was excellent too and the breakfasts had a huge choice and was fantastic too.
We stayed here (sadly only) for two nights in September 2016. This was our final destination at the end of a 2 week family trip in north India and it undoubtedly left an amazing taste to our trip. This is a 5 star deluxe hotel with beautiful grounds and communal areas and although it was very busy you generally did not feel it. Rooms are fabulous and lush, though the standard rooms we stayed in are on the smallish side (and the third bed in room had to be closed when not in use- no worries the room service saw to this immediately upon request) Food was excellent and we ate a number of times in the restaurant + breakfast of course (what a choice on the buffet). Bar was also great. Our only disappointment was that there was no room for all of us (we are 6) to eat breakfast together on the same table on the second morning and we found ourselves sitting separately which was a mistake: once we sat the staff did not go out of the way to sit us together and that happened only after about half an hour as they were worrying first about those that had not been seated at all- the staff did apologize in the end but from my point of view the damage had been done as part of a vacation is sitting together over breakfast and once that happened we had to leave. Swimming pool is nice with the staff running after you with towels and a bag for your wet swim suite- real 5 star + service. Great Hotel and I hope to come back soon!
I been to this hotel couple times few years ago, but recently I came here 3 times in 2 months. My bad experience when I came here in August. They gave me have a haunted room. The room came with two big pictures that really made me uncomfortable. One is above the sofa, and the other one is just beside my bed. A picture of an angry Indian lady who keep on staring at me during the night and when I sleep. I still remember the room number it was 604 on the 6th floor. At first, I didnt say anything because my stay is very short and I didnt want to trouble the staff to change my room. Two days later I came again, and they gave me exactly the same room. This time, I asked the hotel guy who did the check in to change the room for me. Surprisingly, his attitude is very very bad. He refused to do it for me and just ask me to swap my room between my colleagues. Of course I also dont want to give the haunted room to my colleagues, so I insist to change my room, or at least if they are full, I wanted them to take down those pictures. But again, he refused and he didnt even make an effort to find a solution for me. After that, he swapped my room to my other colleagues (which still didn't solve the problem at all). His attitude is really bad. He really didnt want to help us. Even untill my manager came to talk to him. He still gave us a long face and refused to change the room. I am surprised that guy can be put in the guest check in. Isn't it check in staff should be helpful and friendly? I came to India many times, and the service are very excellent. I also stayed in Ibis Budget hotel before in another country, the staff's attitude even better than him. This is Taj Mahal, not a budget hotel. Even the bellboy and porter attitude are better than him. Dont get me wrong, I think in all Taj hotel in India, the service are excellent, except that guy in the front desk / check in area in this particular hotel. Finally the manager on duty at night came to us and he was willing to go upstairs with us, see our room one by one, and if we're not feeling comfortable, we can change our room. Thats an excellent service. Really appreciate that. So remember travellers, if you ever come here and they give you room 604, just ask them to change, if you dont want to have unwanted experience at night during your sleep.
Taj Mahal Delhi is one of my favourite hotels. And reason for it is it's location and Taj hospitality. We stayed in room no. 1131 which provided spectacular view of India Gate, President House and the Parliament. Stay was really comfortable and staff had been really courteous. Always prefer to stay here subject to availability ☺ as this hotel is quite busy and popular in Delhi due to its location. Was there on a holiday with friends and enjoyed every bit of our travel. Machan (Restaurant) was amazing as always. Tried Spa this time and it was an amazing rejuvenating experience. Hope to come back soon.
Stayed for a few nights as part of a tour of India. This hotel is more suited to business clients rather than tourists as it is a bit soul less however staff are very nice. Very impressive public areas although bedrooms, especially bathrooms, require an upgrade as the showers were very inefficient. Restaurants are good especially the Chinese. Drinks however were very expensive
DECEVANT and not exceptional then food is very expensive !!&é"'(§è!çàazertyuiopqsdfghjklmm
