We are travelling India and the caves were on our agenda. We asked the booking agent to avoid chain hotels but apparently there were few options in this city. That having been said we were very happy with the hotel although we spent very little time here due to our schedule. We ate in both restaurants and the service was... More

Hotel room cleanliness is not maintained, plenty of flies during the evening hours. Food quality needs to be improved. Regarding Halal cut chicken there was confusion between Restaurant Manager and Front Desk. Delay in check in process

We did an event at this hotel last week. The hotel is a signature property of Taj. Its a palace that is made into a hotel. In addition, the staff at the hotel is well trained. We were doing an event in their Tango room and the event was well managed by them.
