On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to be told that we were to be upgraded to a suite in the Palace Wing and then presented with a birthday cake to celebrate my wife's birthday. There is so much to see and do at the hotel that a two night stay just isn't enough and the staff could not do enough... More

Arriving at just about checking in time we were greeted expertly by Ninod who gave us a very pleasant surprise by announcing that we had been given an upgrade to a suite in the Palace side of the hotel.

You may think that India is noisy, crowded and dirty, which it can be, but this is a perfect place to imagine that it isn't. With wonderful views from the bay-front rooms and breakfast room and absolutely impeccable service the not insubstantial cost suddenly seems worth it. It extends your tourist day from the moment that you arrive until you... More

Wonderful hotel, spotlessly clean with polite, helpful staff. We stayed in the original Palace wing and were very pleased with our quiet large room which had plenty of seating, excellent lighting and all amenities in the bathroom. We didn't have a view of the Gateway to India but it didn't matter. We ate in Wasabi Japanese restaurant and Masala Kraft... More

We stayed here for our last few nights in India. We were treated like royalty from the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off at the airport.

We stayed at the Taj for two nights in November. On arrival we were upgraded to the palace wing, which was a lovely surprise. The service and attention to detail was impressive and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We were assigned a floor butler (Rakesh) who explained everything to us and was on hand if...

This hotel is just incredible. From the service from the staff to the decor of the entire hotel it is just perfect.
