I stayed in the historical palace wing (and there is also a tower wing which is new and not historical). My whole experience with this hotel has been very good. Excellent service in all areas from front-desk to housekeeping and to the service at restaurants. Very clean and nice decoration in the room, always a very good smell in the...

This hotel is 5-star all the way from the beautiful architecture to the spacious rooms to the very courteous and helpful staff. It is one of those, "wow! Am I really here?" Hotels for a special occasion. The location, near the Gateway to India, is ideal. The Japanese Restaurant Wasabi is fabulous, the lounge areas elegant. No wonder all the...

It was surprising to see the pandemonium during the check-in process - the lobby was over crowded, the staff was looking hassled. But, after the initial hiccups, the stay was a pleasant one. We stayed in the heritage section, the room was nothing exceptional, but the food at Wasabi By Morimoto and then Golden Dragon, more than made it up!...

A truly 5 star hotel. Many hotels around the world have a 5star rating and some of them struggle to match up, not this wonderful Taj. Perfect location opposite the Gate of India and looking out over the Arabian sea. The staff, the service, the rooms, the gardens, the restaurants all truly 5 stars.

It is good to know that such an iconic hotel is not just coasting but provides excellent, caring service and immaculate rooms. We were upgraded to a club, India Gate view room though we only stayed one night (unfortunately!) with access to the club lounge with its complimentary afternoon tea with a wide selection of delectable little bits, and drinks...
