Great location near the airport. Property is nicely kept and kid friendly. Kids enjoyed the pool.
Very very nice property and I got at a good rate. Slightly far from airport (say around 30 minutes). Otherwise good rooms and breakfast is good
The Taj Mahal Palace is not only my favorite hotel in India, but my favorite hotel in the world. The history, facilities, staff, and food and second to none. Even if you don't stay in this hotel, you must at least visit it.
One of the best stays in Mumbai. The brand Oberoi lives up to its name. Fantabulous Suite. Excellent food. Very pleasant staff. Very helpful concierge. Everything in this property is great. I will definitely stay again at The Trident and strongly recommend all to try this once to feel the difference ...
My parents travel to India occasionally and I can always trust that JW will take good care of them. The Delhi JW bear the airport has been particularly accommodating. Thank you.
