              • Older travelers
                8.0

                The service at Distil was outstanding. Staff are very attentive.

                The food was good - not brilliant. We wanted a quiet day at the hotel so ate there - there are much better choices in the city for much better value - and not far away.

              • Single
                10.0

                From the time I arrived to the time I departed I was treated like an absolute King. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to make me comfortable. The check-in was immediate with a delectable welcome Lichi drink. After that I was escorted to my room which was big by any standard. And the response to room service was almost instantaneous. Concierge was extremely helpful when I asked some directions to a nearby place. Overall, I would rate this as, perhaps, the best hotel in India. Kudos to it - I am a fan for life!!

              • Single
                5.8

                The area and cleanliness is good

                The taxation policy is not transparent. It has lot of ambiguities.

              • Single
                7.0

                Very friendly, helpful staff - a quiet room - no noise from other guests.

                The room was FREEZING- the a/c was not working properly. I asked for help as I could not get warm and the bedding felt cold and damp. In the end I had to turn off the whole unit. The meal I ordered at 9:30 pm was cold when it arrived - rather disappointing too.I found that I did not get value for money for the price I paid for the room and meals. I have stayed in many hotels around the world and I was really looking forward to staying here - but it was disappointing.

              • Single
                8.2

                This is a very nice hotel and if you like that colonial vibe then this is the place for you.

                Wifi is not free - I fully believe that you are losing business as a result of this archaic policy.

              • Single

                Surprises about higher room charges tax calculations.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                We stayed for 2 nights in March 2012. We were fortunate to have been upgraded to a heritage room which is on the top floor and looks over the lovely pool. The room was reached by walking across the top of the plant filled atrium which was beautiful and airy and light. Our room was huge, with two separate seating areas along with a ginormous and comfortable bed with lovely clean squishy pillows. We had fresh flowers and fruit delivered daily and the room was kept immaculate and housekeeping was more than once a day. The reception staff were helpful and polite. The pool was just perfect for relaxing by with attentive but unobtrusive staff bringing free drinks along just when you wanted - and it is 20 metres long - so good for a proper swim. Our flight was very late so we were provided with a courtesy room to freshen up and sort ourselves out in after checking out.

                The mosquitos were an issue - I got bitten round my ankles lots in the restaurant, despite the best efforts of a man with an electronic zapper racquet. Having to pay 200rupees an hour for the wifi was extortion as all the other hotels we stayed at in India gave us free wifi. The food bills seemed to mount up from what they said on the menu to how they appeared on the final statement - there seem to be loads of taxes and charges and sometimes the menu prices are unclear, so if you are watching your budget then beware!

                Everything, specially very courteous and caring staff members of hotel. I would specifically like to mention that senior executives like Mr. Vijay Shrikent (General Manager)and Mr.Ashirbad Praharaj (Accomodations Manager) of this Taj property have all the time for their hotel guests and ensure that guests problems,if any,are taken care of immediately. They truly are well versed in art of hospitality.
