Historical Traveller Reviews of Taj Lands End Mumbai Hotel

True Value for Money

from Gunvven
One of the Best Hotel in North Mumbai ! Taj is the true face of Indian Hospitality
I have stayed at Grand Hyatt before but that hotel was so cold ..The staff at Taj is incomparable to any in Mumbai at least
I recommend to stay at Club Rooms if you are on Business Trip as you get true value of money - Butler Service , Lounge , Cocktails etc to name a few . The only problem with the hotel is lack of entertainment with in the hotel .
There are no good bar or pubs in the hotel , however Bandra ( Local area where Taj lands End )
is full of Bars and some high profile night clubs
Insist on staying at 21st Floor , The view is better

Very satisfied

from Ld500
A calm oasis amidst the chaos of Mumbai.
The staff are very attentive and welcoming, although the service at the pool could be better considering the hotel's high star rating.
The rooms are of average size and very clean.

The hotel caters to both, foreign travellers and Indians. The latter which use the facilities for big wedding celebrations.

Tip: Order the club sandwich from the bar, not the restaurant.

The location is not very central, but the surrounding area is becoming more popular, filled with buzzing restaurants and bars catering to everyone's tastes (try the chocolate fudge at Zenzi bar). The concierge desk is very helpful with its culinary recommendations. Simply opt for a rickshaw outside the hotel's gates (ensure they run on a meter).

Extremely Satisfied with my Stay

from Papad
I was a bit apprehensive after reading the reviews on this site but my stay was first class all along. I was on business for 3 weeks and stayed for two weeks in this hotel and spent the other week in Bangalore.

I stayed in one of their club rooms. The first time they put me in a room next to the butlers pantry and it was very noisy but after that stay I moved to another room.

The beds were comfy, bathrooms large and opulent and basic amenities such as toiletries, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste all taken care of. The club rooms have access to a butler service which is wonderful for business travelers. The internet connectivity was fantastic.

They had a small restaurant for club room guests where they served breakfast and high tea. If you wanted the buffet which was enormous you could go down to Vista.

Overall nice hotel in chaotic Mumbai. There are no pretty views as in the west, no lush gardens nor open spaces to roam around but by Indian standards it was good. Shopping was a short rickshaw ride away at nearby Elco Market and Linking Road. All nicknacks, designer stores, food places. You just had to venture out.

I also stayed at the Taj Palace Hotel by Gateway of India over the weekends but I liked the Lands End much better. It was much more quiet and sane for me.

JW Marriott is better....

from SugarWahine
Just finished a stay at the Taj Lands End. Definitely not what I was expecting, especially as a Taj property which is supposed to be the crown in the jewel in terms of service. The rooms are large and that is always a plus, but that is about the only plus I could see. It is in a good location neighborhood wise, but definitley removed and travel time with traffic included is painful.
The best part (or worst) was the fact I had no hot water in the shower the entire time I stayed there. They kept claiming to send engineers up and "fixing" it, and then said it was because I did not know how to use the fixture.... which was not true. Esp. after my colleague had the same situation in his bath I was definitely suspect of the fixture excuse. I also did laundry while I was there and got the dry cleanables laundered and the laundry dry cleaned- BIG mistake and had some pants completely ruined and all I got was "sorry madame".
Service overall is inconsistent at best. One night I would come back to my room and it would be cleaned to the 9"s, slippers out, shoes lined up, spotless bathrooms, fresh fruit on a plate and other nights I would come back and just have the bed made and a few clean towels. Very odd.
I learned that most of the Taj staff actually went and worked at the JW Marriott when they opened and I sense they are suffering for that now.
Food is just okay at the Taj. The new restaurant Pure, which is the supposed rage was awful and we tried it twice! Also, the breakfast buffet is much nicer at the Marriott.... The Taj would make dosas and such, but only if you asked them and you knew to do that.
Since the price is similar, I would go with the JW Marriott over this Taj. Better location, better food and at least the water in the shower is hot.

Good for a business trip

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed a couple of nights on a business trip.

The hotel itself is very nice - spacious and nicely decorated rooms, huge bathroom, great bed, clean, modern, high quality overall. Room had a safe, kettle, TV, wireless internet, all the stuff you want. Room service food was excellent. I liked the master control panel - electric curtains are fun !
Location reasonably convenient for the airport and Tech district.

Minor quibbles:
Check in was a bit slow but they were busy.
No international wall sockets though as in some other Taj hotels.
View was a little spoiled by the freeway construction, but then you don't go to Mumbai for pretty views. I didn't hear any noise from it.
Location is not perhaps the swankiest, but I did wander into the little park just outside that goes down to the sea one evening without any concern.

OK stay at the Taj Lands End

from Shakespeare_fan
I was at the Taj Lands End for 4 nights in Nov 2005.

Like some of the other reviewers, I have some praise and criticism of this hotel.

Positives:
* very large, very clean room
* huge bath area
* Taj always has nice amenities -- including toothburush and toothpaste, comb, etc. more than you get in most American or European hotels
* breakfast buffet was large and varied (watch out about smoking areas -- they are not well labeled)
* staff were friendly and helpful -- everyone from the greeter in the lobby, to random employees I encountered in the elevator or in the hallways
* well stocked equipment in the gym
* nice view of the sea -- some interesting birds and boats came by.

Negatives
* I find the Taj master console annoying -- this is a device by the bed that controls all lights, plus the curtains, and a few other devices. There is no setting for "night light". I like to have a small night light so that I don't stub my toes when using the toilet at night. This was very hard to figure out using their console -- it took me over 30 minutes to remember how to make this work on their console
* construction noise -- not from the highway project -- this seemed to have been suspended when I was there. Instead it was workers preparing special displays for the Bandra festival -- this began the day I left. The noise kept on through the last 2 nights I was there.
* sauna and jacuzzi were not working on 2 different occasions when I tried to use them

Overall
I will probably stay somewhere else next time I'm in Mumbai.

Nice hotel, poor location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Taj Lands End, at the end of September 2005.

The hotel facilities (room, lobby, restaurants) were clean but definitely not what was expected from the "Tier 1" brand of Taj.

The general vicinity of the hotel is odd. It's in an isolated residential area with no other hotels or restaurants nearby.

There is a strange semi-abandoned high-rise building right across the street from the front entrance to the hotel. This carcass seems to be attracting squatters or transients. It ruins the otherwise decent view.

Changing to the other side of the building was no better.

The hotel neglects to mention that there is a multi-lane super-highway under construction about 500 yards from the building. Imagine the surprise when I was able to listen to heavy equipment and construction noise, including hammering, small explosions (like loud fireworks), and construction workers hollering throughout the night, every night.

This hotel is crazy charging what they did...around $250/night for this location. It's worth about half that.

The primary dining area, a restuarant called Vista, while open for all meals, specialized in a decent buffet, but tended to be frequently out of the high-demand food items. For example the lamb biryani was never refilled, usually offering over-cooked rice and meat remnants refused by other diners.

Front desk staff seems inexperienced. Upon my arrival, I was asked by the greeter at the door, to wait in the lobby area until a front-desk clerk was available. After flying for 27 hours, I waited for nearly an hour to check-in after the front-desk clerks (all 3) kept ignoring me and taking walk-up traffic.

There were frequent bouts of travelers loudly discussing the incorrect charges on their bill upon check out, but I must confess that this did not occur with me.

If you're paying anything more than US$150 / night, you might be better off finding another location.

At best, I'd give this place 3 stars, not the 4 or 4 1/2 they claim.

Enjoyed the lands end

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just wrapping up a 5 day stay at the Taj Lands end. It is an excellent hotel with an exceptional view of the Arabian sea. The breakfast buffet (included) is sumptuous and caters to a variety of tastes..both my wife and i and the kids enjoyed it.

The service was solid and what one would expect albeit a little bit on the impersonal side (as contrasted with the last two places we stayed right before we got here where the service guys seemed to go as far as learning our names and personalizing their interactions with us). That is probably the only reason i'd give this one notch below the excellent rating.

Good quality business hotel

from wantaword
Very happy with my stay here. Good sized rooms, well furnished, very clean, good service - above average for a quality business hotel. My first time in Mumbai but compared to the rest of the region this hotel was very good for a few day business trip.

Very comfortable; nice location

from travelgood
I stayed at the Taj Lands End in September 2004 while on a work related trip, and found it to be a very comfortable 5-star hotel. It is a new-ish hotel that was taken over by the Taj so it doesn't have the typical colonial decor you'd find at other Taj hotels, which I actually found to be a refreshing change. The bathroom was HUGE (a large shower stall, a tub, and a separate toilet area -- it seemed like 3 rooms). When I checked in I found that the sheets had not been changed, but a quick call to housekeeping fixed that. (Thus the 4 star rating). I also had to specially request an iron and ironing board, and while the iron was ok, I got a rather home-made looking ironing board! The other reason for the 4 star rating is that the staff entered my room when my privacy light was on. One of my colleagues had asked them to put a surprise gift in my room while we were out and while it was a nice gesture, I think the staff should have insisted that they could not do so as long as the privacy light was on. They could have been requesting anything! Despite that, the high rating applies. The hotel faces the sea on the north, west and south sides, although if you are on a low floor facing directly west, your view is going to be of the ghostly burned out shell of what was previously the SeaRock (Sheraton) hotel! So ask for a high floor facing west to see perfect sunsets every evening. While the Taj Land's End is on the end of a residential road with no restaurants within walking distance, there are good though expensive restaurants in the hotel itself, and the concierge can recommend some equally good but less expensive restaurants that are a short taxi ride away. The hotel is about 1 hour drive from downtown Mumbai (less in the middle of the night, longer during rush hour, be warned!) but it's location in Bandra was perfect for us since most of our work was in central Mumbai. I would recommend asking for a "cool cab" which is what airconditioned taxis are called. They're more expensive but not drastically so. Also, it is about 20 mins drive from the international and domestic airport (which, if you didn't know, share the same runways though the two terminals are about 10 mins drive apart). Rush hour traffic tends to go north-south but the airports are east of this hotel. FYI, the location of the hotel is also referred to as Bandstand or Land's End in Bandra West.

Top Local Tips for Mumbai

Wasabai Restaurant at the Taj Palace This destination restaurant is under the name of Chef Morimoto. It is very over-rated. Four of us ate there and found that the sushi was average and the crab rolls were made with imitation crab! Skip this restaurant.

In Bandra If you're staying at Taj Lands End, Bandra then you can have a real good time at the clubs close by. Try Poison, Zenzi, Squeeze ! real funny names...but nice places ! Olive is good too....but dont miss my fav. PURE at the Taj Lands End, Oysters, Crabs, veggies all organically grown !
