I can't express in words, oh my god, what a beautiful hotel... If you are in Mumbai, and didn't book your hotel room in Taj Mahal Palace, then you just miss it. Luxurious rooms, great quality food, parking, outdoor pool, gym, everything you find here... This beautiful hotel is located opposite the Arabian sea, just few meter away from gateway...

Our stay at the Taj was above and beyond what we had imagined, it was perfect! Our room was incredible. We especially enjoyed the heritage tour and breakfast was AMAZING! All the staff were beautiful inside and out. Special shout-out to Dylan D'Souza for all of his help and kindness! We hope to come back! - Natasha and Erin

If you are going to treat yourself or loved one to a stay here do stay in the old hotel building. Rooms overlooking the Gateway to India are superb with dawn sun over the sea. Our rooms included butler service, afternoon tea, canapes before dinner and cocktails, late night hot chocolate. Well worth it what a treat. Superb pool. Relaxed...

Very large hotel, excellent staff and service. We stayed in the old building which has a lot of character. Nice pool area, the water temperature was a little warm for me but better too warm than cold. If you're looking for that special touch? try a smaller hotel, this place is just too big to really get the one on...

It is a treasured experience to stay at the Taj Mahal. Beautiful and classy. Hard to better the service. The food is exceptionally good. A relaxing, enriching experience, not in your face, very soft and subtle.

Great overall experience. Housekeeping staff service were outstanding. My son's birthday was celebrated at the hotel and the staff and I simply mentioned this to the operator when I was enquiring about which restaurant would be ideal for a family celebration. The lady recommended The Golden Dragon and Masala Kraft. The call ended pleasantly. However, the Taj staff took note...
