    Hallway

    by

    Hallways in the original building -- inaugurated on the 234th anniversary of Beethoven's birth -- are furnished with antiques and works of art.

    Unique Quality: One of the three or four finest hotels I've stayed in anywhere.

    NOT my favorite Bombay hotel

    by

    The Taj is a gorgeous old building on the outside. Its restaurants and shops are about as glittery and expensive as it gets, the pool area is lovely and gracious, and for decades the Taj has served as the social venue of choice for Bombay's creme de la creme. However, staying at this hotel is a bit of a rude shock, particularly considering that it's one of the most expensive in the city. The Taj's rooms--both the renovated and the unrenovated wings--are quite disappointing, with ugly or shabby furniture and carpets that should be burned. If only the hotel's management could furnish and maintain the rooms as well as they do the rest of the property!

    Unique Quality: The biggest positive about the Taj is its location, directly across from the Gateway of India (get a sea-facing room here too!) and within walking distance of most of the good sightseeing in Bombay.

    A real dream

    by

    Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai, situated on the waterfront, is a gracious landmark facing the Gateway of India.
    It was built in 1903 by the Parsi industrialist JN Tata, supposedly after he was refused entry to one of the city's European hotels because he was "a native".
    It's a magnificent structure that exhibits Moorish influences and it is crowned by a grand red-roofed dome.

    It's worth a peek at the hotel's interior. Especially the grand central stairway and the internal galleries, which were once exposed to the elements to aid ventilation. The Taj is also worth visiting to see the Mumbai elite in their element.

    Super classy hotel

    by

    In my opinion this is one of the best hotels you can find anywhere on the planet.
    The location is unuquely placed on the see, right opposite the Gate of India, the monument through which the last english soldier left the country after indipendence.
    The service is esquisite, people are extremely friendly and helpful, and not everyone begs for tips ,as I was told, but some are happy just with a smile.
    The room I managed to book was the cheapest of the lot, at 200 us, not cheap for sure, but worth the while, guaranteed !
    The tv set is a plasma 42inches plus monster, bathroom has a giant shower for 6 people ( not tha t I needed it so big, but one never knows...).
    Swimming pool, fitness gym, massages the ayurvedic way, cocktails of tropical fruit and an outstanding service make of this place a must to try at least for one night in your life !

    After all, why spend 50 bucks for a filthy room and spend 4 louzy days, when you can have one of the best nights in your life ?
    Quality, not quantity, please!
    One thing I loved was to be called by name any time i placed a call to reception, these are a kind of details that make you walk out with a smile.....

    See you again, Taj Palace, and a special thank to Benazir, the manager, was so helpful and friendly !
    Luka

    Directions: Opposite the Gate of India

    The Taj is one of the most...

    by

    The Taj is one of the most regal and reputed hotels in the city... It consists of a more recently added tower and a grand older building. The architecture is superb and the service 'par excellence'. The old building has become a landmark to the city and the dome dominated the Colaba seaface. However, all this comes for a price and rooms start at about US $ 230....!!! A lot considering the power of the local currency..

    Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai, situated on the waterfront, is a gracious landmark facing the Gateway of India. When the hotel opened in 1903, it had no parallel in the city, and possibly in the country. Although the hotel has seen much change, including the addition of a contemporary Tower Wing in 1973, it has retained most of its original charm.

    As a member of the select group of 'Leading Hotels of the World' The Taj Mahal offers guests a unique blend of warm hospitality, luxurious accommodation and contemporary amenities and services. The hotel has played host to many prominent personalities including royalty and heads of state. The Taj Mahal Hotel is 30 km from the airport and minutes away from the city's prime commercial, banking and shopping districts.

    Taj Mahal Hotel

    by

    A real classic of Mumbai, this 5 star hotel is one of the icons of the city (though the new wing, that skycrapper at the right side, is rather awful). If you can't afford to sleep here, have at least a tea in its wonderful cafeterias. Located just by the Gate of India. About 200 $ US for a single.

Taj Mahal is in Agra which is near Delhi. If you are stationed in Bombay, its very far. There are trains and planes that ply between the two cities very frequently but its a lonnnnnng way from Mumbai to Agra to consider driving. The best option would be by plane to Delhi and then train/bus to Agra from there. Unless you have a lot of time to spare, even trains are not an option as it takes about a day. You can try checking the following links for pricing...
