We went to have lunch at the golden dragon restaurant. While we were waiting for our food the cockroach came from under the table onto our plates. We did not eat at that restaurant or any other restaurant in this hotel after this incident.

We were initially booked into the Tower but were upgraded to a room at the Palace, facing the courtyard/pool. The hotel has apparently had an extensive renovation following the 2008 attacks, and the Palace wing is flawless. The sumptuous marble bathroom, the surprisingly large rooms, the fabulous Taj service. The place truly is a palace, and the history of the...

As part of the overall experience we booked the Taj car to collect us from the airport which was a lovely way to arrive. The hotel itself is just outstanding.

Stayed in the old building and enjoyed a lovely 4 days here. Pool was crowded but the staff managed the situation well. Had sundowner drinks in the bar on the first floor overlooking the gateway - wonderful way to start the evening. Staff are great.

I stayed at the Taj Mahal Palace for 4 nights in January 2016 for work. The hotel is beautiful, overlooking the Gate of India, harbor, and city. The service was very attentive and the food delicious. There is ongoing construction but it could not be heard. The only negatives were the very cold air conditioning, which isn't something European guests...
