Guest Testimonial

I can not recommend you highly enough. You set the bar at the highest level and cleared it with ease. At the risk of repeating myself please give yourselves a pat on the back; you are the best and we look forward to travelling with you again.

At the heart of New Delhi lies arguably the most distinguished address in India's capital. On Number One Mansingh Road amidst the broad boulevards and leafy splendour of Delhi's chief architect, Edwin Lutyens, stands the wonderful Taj Mahal hotel.


Central to the hotel's prominence is its old-world grace and charm, from the grand public areas to the sumptuous rooms. Every detail in the hotel has clearly been pored over in the quest for perfection - for instance the wonderfully ornate traditional touches in the lobby and lounge areas.

The rooms mix classical decor and a relaxed comfort with stunning views. There is a choice of pool view or Lutyens' city view, which showcases the President's Palace, India Gate and the Raj Path, Humayuns Tomb and the Taj Mahal Delhi gardens. Since The Taj Mahal Hotel is the only high rise in this area, all rooms afford unbroken views of the skyline.
