Editorial review:

This domed hotel in the middle of Mumbai has a great view of the Gateway of India along with the harbor. The staff is marvelous, but the rooms in the tower wing need to be upgraded. The rooms in the attractive palace wing are more spacious and have Victorian themes. The marble baths are stunning and the restaurant is can't-miss.

                    • The location was perfect for me, my hotel room overlooked the Gateway to India and that made for a fabulous stay, service was amazing from the beginning till the end. The breakfasts were excellent, the facilities were great.

                      No nice bar in the evnings, hellish expensive restaurants and 20% tax on food and beverage.

                    • Loved the room and the view over the sea, absolutely beautiful hotel, the service of the staff and the modern facilities. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was very nice at searoom and manager at the Shamiana was also great.

                      The food in most of the taj restaurants is largely overpriced.

                    • Beautiful views, very good hotel and the service was great at all levels. The room was also very pleasant and the food served to us was fantastic.

                      Staff were apologetic.

                    • Good location and great hotel. Well worth the price and nice staff. The bed was large and the breakfast too had an excellent assortment of dishes.

                      The room smelled somehow old.

                    • The view from the intercontinental tower on the gateway of India was great and every things about the hotel were nice. The staff were exceptional, checkout process was very fast very efficient and complimentary water bottles was an excellent idea due to the hot climate. Breakfast was very good.

                      Now to the sometimes impersonal service and my room was a bit noisy from tha air ventilators was outside of the room.

                    • The location is perfect and the pool area is a welcome relief in a busy city. Laundry services are available, the food is great and the rooms are very clean and neat.

                      The hotel is very very expensive and some of the staff is too obedient.

                      Service sometimes impersonal and restaurants are not very good.

                      Not just a hotel stay, maybe a little expensive breakfast.

Hotel recommended an excellent restaurant, the building is beautiful and the location great, the staff is very well trained and accommodating.

The conference rooms are spacious enough to hold a big conference, the food and the ambiance there are amazing, the pool is large and fabulous.

                      Too much factory minded in tower place, very poor service and breakfast is not excellent.

                    • The location is fabulous and the Taj Mahal Palace Tower is a central focal point in Mumbai. The hotel is amazing, to sum up, this may just become our annual ritual and the lobby is beautiful and sophisticated and routes the traffic well. The staff is very polite and room a little on the small size for the price we paid.

                      The view was worth for one night, the spa services were inconsistent and bathroom had also seen better days. The tea has no flavour gave up drinking in the end.
