    Excellent hotel for families with children”

    I stayed in the falconers 2 bedroom apartment. It was spacious and clean. However, I think it needs renovation. My advice is to stay in the ministers or kings as these are higher categories and recently been renovated. Overall, It was a pleasent stay. The hotel staff/services are exceptional.

    No upto Taj standards”

    Suite was not ready Inspite of arriving much later than check in time. Staff was very less and hence service was extremely slow (waited an hour for a scissor). In-room dining was not able to explain things well and said will complain to chef about certain things but could not offer us what we wanted. Lot of under-training staff who were not at all courteous. When I informed them there were problems in the bathroom (shower knob loose) and once there was a spider , they started asking whether window was open or whether we had reported the loose knob earlier. No action or apologies or any other sort of thing from their side. In-spite of booking a premium category hotel and suite, it did not feel like it at all. Disappointing end to the trip as all other hotels were fantastic.

    Weekend Break at the Taj”

    Fantastic welcome when we arrived - first impressions were excellent; Beautiful suite with complimentary upgrade; lovely breakfast with choice from menu and cooked to individual preference

    Really impressed with this hotel. Would definitely stay here again. Very attentive staff, beautiful rooms, and excellent value for money. Nice meal at the Bank restaurant. Some lovely little touches that made you feel special - Free canapés and drinks between 6-7; complimentary papers delivered to room in a nice quality little bag; beautifully presented chocolate waiting in our room when we got back on Saturday evening. Only minor issue was work being carried out on site adjacent to breakfast area which was a little distracting and service at breakfast on Sunday morning was a little short of the otherwise high standards.

    What a fabulous place to stay!”

    The food was fabulous, the place was sparkling and the staff attentive

    We have just arrived back from a couple of nights in London where we stayed in a Taj suite.....what an experience. It will be hard now to stay anywhere else and not make unfavourable comparisons. The suite we stayed in was so fantastic that we were sorry we had made evening arrangements (evening cruise on Thames and theatre - both easy to get to only 5 mins to the tube station at St James). We didn't get to view the complimentary DVD library with popcorn (in our spacious lounge), have afternoon tea or get to the sauna. What we did experience was the luxury of a beautiful, spotlessly clean, fabulous suite in an unbeatable location (next door to Buckingham palace), with fantastic food, complimentary canapés and cocktails and staff who could not be more helpful. There was not one thing that could have been improved

    I don't normally write reviews but we had an excellent stay, though just one night so i feel compelled to. The hotel itself was very nice and we were then upgraded to a wonderful 3 bedroom suite. A pity it was just my son and me, but we did thoroughly enjoy it, and the staff were all very nice.
