How to Get There
I visited Taj late March in Delhi n had to fly Back on an emergency hence was in a hurry n paid my bills off and later realized there was wrong charge on the bill - I reached out to duty manager Amrinder for help, And boy I was blown away with the way he treated his customer with so much concern over someone issue - I am pretty impressed with the duty mangers way of dealing with his customers and ensuring the best options are offered to they customers - about the stay was the best experience in India so far
this hotel takes care of every luxury and is very comfortable. it is located in a very good location in delhi and is accessible from everywhere as it is centrally located. I like the service and character of taj hotels.
Admittedly, I am comparing the Taj Mahal Delhi to other Taj locations (Taj Mahal Mumbai, Taj Lake Palace Udaipur, Taj Mahua Kothi). Those hotels set my expectations for Delhi and I was disappointed. The service level was more consistent with a much lower quality and less expensive hotel. I had transfer from the Marriott Aerocity to stay closer to the city centre and experience Taj luxury but the room, and executive suite with balcony overlooking the pool, was outdated and lacked shampoo and soap. The fruit put in the room was old and left until we asked to have it refreshed. I am allergic to lilies and asked to have them removed only to have them back in the room the next day. The staff were rude and unhelpful, consistently telling us to find another person to help us; including both at check in and check out.
The spa, pool and Varq staff are an exception to this - when interacting with them, I felt like I was in a Taj hotel. The food at Varq was creative and delicious and I would eat there again.
Again, this is an adequate hotel in a good location, but not worth the cost, and not if you are expecting Taj quality.
I stayed here for quite a while for work and was extremely happy with every aspect of this hotel. The staff went above and beyond to cater to my every need and always did this with a smile. The breakfast was varied and delicious and my room was spacious and clean with a huge and comfortable bed. The travel desk service was streamlined and speedy and always arranged transportation for me with ease. This hotel is in a great location and is a walkable distance to Khan Market.
A special mention to a few members of staff who made my stay at the Taj especially pleasant: Asha, the room service assistant who was always very friendly, Dinesh and Devanand the laundry attendants who provided exquisite and efficient service, Ashok, my room attendant who was extremely attentive and Manok and all of the lift attendants who were always warm and welcoming.
Thank you for making my time in India so memorable. A true 5 star hotel.
From the associates dressed to the nines to each and every furnishing, the Taj Mahal in Delhi oozes old-school style. Service was friendly, and the room was perfectly situated over a pretty garden where hawks perched, stalking the pigeons that littered the area.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay here - the hotel has multiple restaurants that looked interesting, but many were not casual - everything here is done up fancy.
The only complaints were a slightly cramped bathroom and a slow shower drain, the latter something we noticed all throughout India, even in 5 star hotels.
