"Beautiful and charming hotel but the staff were very disappointing!"
Stayed at the Taj on our last night in Delhi and chose a Club Room because this included airport transfer services. The hotel is stunning and charming and the standards of the rooms is quite good. We were on quite a high floor so had some lovely views over the surrounding areas. In terms of food, we had a snack in the in the Lounge during the afternoon where the selection was an absolute joke, but in the evening there were some great canapes. We also had some small snacks in the Emperor Lounge which were very good and enjoyed the breakfast! Overall the food was great. Our biggest gripe was the staff, in general they were not very friendly from the check in managers to the servers in the Lounge. They were also not very helpful, we had a question in relation to cash (note: this was just following the Rupee note withdrawal issues in India and of course we knew the hotel could not help but we just wanted some information) and were sent to the Concierge who was on the phone and very rudely made it clear that we should just leave when we just waited. We then went to the reception and were sent to the cashiers who sent us back to the Concierge, at which point we decided to just leave the hotel and not bother. I have stayed at other Taj Hotels albeit outside India (in Sri Lanka for example) where the service was always that of utter perfection. So it was sorely disappointing when we had this experience at the very home of this hotel group. Having travelled this region a lot we know what Asian hospitality means and this hotel had no clue.
A great place to stay on a business trip to Delhi! Location and service are top notch. There is a nice executive floor lounge, good breakfast choices, also good food choices for dinner. The airport transfers are very smooth, and the in-room check-in is a very nice part of the service.
We stayed in this hotel twice on our Golden Triangle tour. The hotel is big and has a lot of restaurants. Pool was big advantage in this hot time. Variety of food in main restaurant wasn't very good, but not bad. Prices for alcohol were from space )) Last night we asked to make lunch-boxes with breakfast, but they forgot and started to made them while we were waiting transfer. Our friends stayed in Shangri-La hotel and they were satisfied for 100%. I'm not sure will I go back to India, but if I will, I'll choose Shangri-La.
"Tea at Machän"
Excellent blends. I ordered the Tisanes. Such a lovely balance of citrus in leaf. The Taj Blend is par excellent as in all the Taj Hotels. Good decor with the view of the trees. An experience similar to that of a jungle lodge.
