The hotel is very comfortable. The staff is very accommodating/courteous and treated me as if I was the only guest in their hotel. I felt secure at all times. There are several options for food and was able to find something for all of my team members to eat.

ENJOYED POOL SIDE CAFE. Nice ambience. Impressed with Traditional Welcome with Aarti & Garland. It's excellent location just facing Gateway of India. Throughout stay, one can find immense hospitality. Harbour Bar is the first bar of Mumbai with license No. 1 having wonderful stock of large collection of all sorts of liquor.

My kids and I simply loved our stay here. The staff are the best, each and every one of them. We had the pleasure to spend a few extra minutes with Husain Mohammed (Assistant Housekeeping Manager), he was so kind, helpful and willing to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you Taj Mahal Palace staff.
