    Very friendly staff, excellent location, value for money breakfast buffet, amazing night life @ The Mix Bar

  • Couple

    Great reception area. Nice view from room. Good restaurants.

    Noisy at night from parties. Hard to sleep. Bed was uncomfortable. Rooms kind of run down for the star quantity they have.

  • Single
    5.0

    - Staff were generally polite.

    - I was disappointed by the on site travel desk. Further, there was a Michael Jackson tribute concert which meant that there was a lot of noise until 11 PM on two evenings (one was a rehersal evening). I was not informed of this at the time of making the reservation.

    a good location and comfotable hotel with pleasant satff

  • Single

    Good hotel... Carpets seems to be pretty old. Staffs are very courteous and willing to help always. Health Faucets are a must in the toilets, as many Asians are used to it, when a mug is not provided.

  • Group of friends

    nice place & nice Hotel i love it

    the ++ is 30% which is expensive

  • Single

  • Single

    The location and restaurants are very good.

    The quality of the room is very shabby.

  • Single
    6.6

    Staff is very friendly and the service was very good.

    I found that the double bed which I was offered was not very comfortable...could feel the springs of the mattress. Luckily for me there was a separate single bed in the room.

  • Single
    4.6

    The fair name of Taj -as a prime Hotel Property is severrly tarnished.The facilities are not on class to be called 5 sar- at Best 3 Star. The furnishing, facility in room are of having reached beyond their life.

  • Single
    7.4

    Quiet and the Chinese restaurant

    I expected much more from such a reputed hotel. Nothing complimentary fro guests and also no information about room service provided.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Food was very good

    The hotel was run down and could use a renovation.

  • Single
    6.4

    I chose the Taj because I wanted to spend the last two days of my vacation lying at the pool. When I arrived, I learned that the pool was closed for renovation. I think that should have been mentioned in the online booking site. Patrons were offered to use the pool of a nearby hotel, which had virtually no service and broken chairs. Secondly I chose the Taj because it also had tennis courts. But when I arrived I learned that there would be no one to play with for one of the days. When I finally got a chance to play, we were provided with four balls _ all soggy and one that was falling apart and unuseable. I would have expected more from a five-star hotel. The water pot in my room didn't work. I asked to have it fixed. They provided a new pot, but it didn't work either. I finally figured out that it wasn't the pot, but the electrical outlet, so I plugged it into a different outlet and that worked. My other complaint was that ever time I closed my eyes for a nap, somebody came to the room asking if I needed anything, replace a light bulb, asking if the service at the hotel was fine, etc. My fault for not putting up the ``Do not disturb sign.''

  • Couple
    6.6

    Most of the hotel staff is absolutely lovely with the exception of the men working behind the from desk (especially the service center head) who were quite rude.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Outstanding service and staff. Excellent food. Imposing common areas. Good value spa.

    Not really a negative comment, but some of the facilities were a bit tired, eg bathroom and swimming pool.
