How to Get There
My wife and I were touring India and stayed for two nights at the Taj Mahal Hotel. The hotel is in a good location for many of the attractions of New Delhi, and has beautiful colonial architecture on the outside. The inside is smart and clean and very attractive with lovely artwork in the lobby.
Our room was reasonably spacious. However the hot water was a bit intermittent!
There was a wide variety of good food available on the buffet, but particularly in the evenings, buffet replenishment was not as speedy as it ought to have been. However our server BANTI did a great job for us and suggested many nice things to eat, particularly a chocolate truffle cake that exceeded our expectations! Well done BANTI.
Wine prices were however very high - a glass of modest red wine cost over 1,000 Rupees after taxes.
Would we visit again? Yes we would.
There aren’t enough words in the world to describe the level of hospitality and warmth we were treated with during our entire two-week stay at the Taj Mahal Hotel New Delhi. We opted for a Club-level room, mainly due to all the added benefits (complimentary airport pick-up, lounge access, laundry services, and many others). After a 24-hour journey, we were taken directly to our room to check in, which was a lovely and unexpected treat after a very long day of travel.
The Club Lounge is on a whole other level – the hors d'oeuvres twice a day could easily replace full meals, thanks to the various food choices (meat + vegetarian + desserts). Massive thanks to the Club Lounge staff for putting up with us for two weeks! They made our stay at the Taj that much more memorable, thanks to their kindness and relentless dedication to guest satisfaction.
The fresh fruit and butter cookies were such a nice treat every day!
Nice hotels and PEOPLE'S I love it that is very near to Taj Mahal and many people like it was great and nice deals very good service neat and clean all hotels you at booking @.com room is nice Avery things
Great place to stay in the heart of New Delhi. It has beautiful pieces and paintings all over and everything shows that a lot of care has been taken in designing and maintaining it. Staff is very well trained and cooperative.
The Taj Hotel has the look and services of an era past. If you are looking for contemporary amenities like USB ports, 24/7 cstore , vending, or even hand showers elsewhere. You are locked in a secure gated compound, noshops or street life.
The furnishings are nicely kept but but dared. Contemporary travelers beware. This hotel is suitable for officials from surrounding embassies not tourists.
My tour group touted it as .5 Stars”, a rating likely earned decades ago.
