The Taj Palace is far more than just a hotel. The ambiance is sublime and the service is absolutely without fault. This was my second stay here and will be the only place I will ever stay in Mumbai. Has to be experienced to be appreciated.

Very poor taste in making guests wait by taking room numbers and calling up when the tables are ready. Not good at all from a 5* hotel. Nor did the staff open the outside tables but showed lack of respect for hotel guests. If I wanted to wait in a queue, then I would have booked a 3* hotel but...

My favourite hotel in the world, I stayed here in December 2009 and would love to stay again, it is expensive but life is too short. If you can afford it, stay here. Drinks by the pool, followed by a swim is a must do. The breakfast was five star!

The Taj Mahal Palace is an iconic hotel for many reasons. It was the first large hotel in Mumbai, it's location is directly opposite the Gateway of India where the British soldiers left the Empire and it was built by the creator of the Tata Empire who, having been refused entry to a hotel on the basis of his race,...

Overall my stay was comfortable and got a very nice room. The ambience and location is perfect. Lovely heritage property with ever ready to help staff. Only problem we faced was room service food quality. The quantity and quality is inconsistent. In spite of our complaint and giving specific order the food was not of 5 star standard. The management...

Hotel is gorgeous. Pool and spa are definitely high points. Breakfast is not up to the hotel's image. Downtown location is good except for the overwhelming touts and beggars. Tour of the hotel is corny but worthwhile FHR benefits added to the value of the stay

Me and my family (3yr and 6 yr) visited Mumbai in November 2015 and we stayed 4 nights at the Taj Mahal Palace. In comparison with other luxury hotels I think the cost is quiet ok. Some things to think about, the hotel has 7 restaurants, some are more popular than others and make sure to book the restaurants in...

If you are coming to Mumbai you really should stay here. This historic hotel is located right next to the gateway of India and it exudes old world charm. It is most certainly not the most modern hotel, or even the grandest hotel I have visited but it is absolutely unique and really very special. Arriving feels like you are...
