How to Get There
Too costly ! Service was too bad especially at the reception and restaurant management, though the food was good. Infrastructure is good and well maintained, but attitude of the staff needs tremendous improvement.
Located next to the Maurya Sheraton in the diplomatic enclave of Delhi, the Taj Palace is a legendary hotel. Everything in the hotel is about luxury. The rooms are great and the restaurants are excellent.
The hotel is situated in the diplomatic area and there was lots of police and security in evidence, including security check on entering the hotel for vehicles and individuals. On arrival we were give the opportunity to upgrade to a Club Room, and we took up this offer the following day. The Club room had more modern décor (recently refurbished?) although it was not large. In the Club lounge there was a good buffet provided in the evening with a small selection of free alcoholic (until 8pm) and other beverages available. The buffet food in the main restaurant was generally good, with a mixture of local and western dishes. This is a large hotel with several restaurants. We ate in most of the restaurants whilst there and can say that the standard of cuisine was high. We particularly liked the Indian and Chinese restaurants where staff were very welcoming. A car is essential to explore Delhi sights from the hotel. The pool area appeared nice to relax after a day’s sightseeing, however, there was some noise from the road outside the hotel. The exterior of the hotels was quite dated. Overall a good hotel and would recommend.
I visited Taj Palace and it was great experience specially Mr Mukesh Joshi attended our family and made our day special. I recommend this property is must visit place for families and to get good service.
Some pain points in this Taj property that you may encounter:
- Crowded lobbies with excessive diversity of people due to this being a popular conference/seminar hotel
- reception service can be patchy, not because of staff but the crowd
- i was told i was ‘upgraded’ to a luxury room. Honestly it appeared to be a standard room.
- room size smaller than comparable hotels in delhi
- breakfast experience is really bad. Gets very crowded, spread is meagre compared to similar Delhi hotels, service is poor (overworked & understaffed) and quality of food is poor
- they surely need more space to fix the breakfast problem. Its a mess
- Indian restaurant again mediocre experience in terms of food & service
There isn’t a one-off issue here. Sadly most of the times your experience will be underwhelming - not a Taj feeling.
I wouldn’t recommend. Sorry Taj
