Why we choose The Taj Mahal Hotel Delhi

Be seduced by the glamour of the hotel’s old-world grace and charm

  • The Emperor’s Lounge has its own dedicated Tea Sommelier
  • Butlers for Taj Club rooms act as your assistant and guide
  • Are your stars aligned? Ask the on-call astrologer

The Taj Mahal Hotel successfully endeavors to be all things to all (wealthy) people. There are gorgeous rooms, a spa, fitness center, unbelievable line-up of restaurants, business center—even a small shopping arcade. It’s almost like you don’t have to leave the hotel, which is at least partly the point. Much of Delhi is thoroughly modern, but its poverty and crime rates are worth noting. This hotel takes security very seriously, and they ensure there’s no reason to leave if you don’t want to.

What you need to know about the hotel

The Taj Mahal blends jaw-dropping classical architecture and thoroughly modern facilities

  • Executive Balcony Suites have enclosed balconies and spectacular skyline views, while the themed Luxury Suites showcase the opulence of bygone eras
  • The on-site Mont Blanc Showroom offers the brand’s signature writing instruments, leather goods and men’s accessories
  • Masaharu Morimoto (of Iron Chef fame) is behind Wasabi, which has a sake bar, dramatic teppanyaki and grill counter and sushi bar

The first thing you’ll notice about the Taj Mahal Hotel is that, similar to its namesake, its appearance is spellbinding. The design is an homage to Mughal architecture and includes intricate motifs, golden inlay work, artful domes and marble fountains. The 294 guestrooms are most impressive at the suite level, and we recommend the Taj Club rooms, which take the service and amenities to a whole new level.

The hotel is a major dining destination in Delhi, and it’s easy to see why. An entire novel could be written on the gloriousness that is the Taj Mahal Hotel’s seven restaurants and bars. From Rick’s—a wokkerie and bar modeled after Casablanca (with wine and cheese evenings presented by the in-house sommelier)—to Varq, a gourmet Indian eatery where you dine surrounded by original artwork. There’s something for every taste, and each bite is better than the last.

Where is it and what's nearby

One of the most distinguished addresses in India’s capital city

  • The largest presidential residence on earth (Rashtrapati Bhavan) boasts spectacular architecture plus the noteworthy—and public—13-acre Mughal Gardens
  • Pay your respects to Gandhi with a visit to the New Town colonial bungalow where he was assassinated
  • A rickshaw tour of Old Delhi takes you back in time while you take in interesting temples and mosques

The Taj Mahal Hotel is located on Delhi’s Number One Mansingh Road, close to the government center and business district. It’s also within a few miles of the Presidential Palace, India Gate, Safdarjung’s Tomb, the famous Lodhi Gardens and the lively Khan Market. When exploring Delhi, you’ll soon find there are two distinct realities: the fast-paced progressive component and the incredibly impoverished element so common in cities that straddle new and old. The hotel is in New Town, which is largely a modern metropolis, but be sure to explore Delhi’s past through museums, landmarks and architecture. 

How to enjoy Delhi

Delhi comes in three versions: Old, New and Ultramodern. New Delhi is a colonial dream of tree-lined boulevards and marble mansions. Old Delhi is grittier with narrow bazaars and the imposing Red Fort

  • Take a day trip to the Taj Mahal. The ‘teardrop on the cheek of time’ was a message of love from Emperor Shah Jahan to his wife
  • The 13th Century red sandstone Qutab Minar is India’s tallest minaret. It’s not possible to climb, but it is still worth a visit  
  • Raj Ghat is a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi and marks the place where he was cremated with a black marble platform and eternal flame

Amid the bustle, dust, noise, bright butterfly-color and yes, the varied aromas of Delhi, there is a peaceful oasis of calm, the Baha’i House of Worship. The lotus-shaped temple itself attracts thousands of visitors a year, but the gardens are a clean, green haven. For the exhilaration of the crammed street markets, Chandni Chowk is a must, but you might need to brace yourself.

New Delhi is not about the technology and shining shopping malls of the more modern elements of the city. It is the elegant symmetry of the Lutyens-designed opulence and home to the presidential palace and the diplomatic quarter. To capture the essence this colonial past, savor an ice cold gin & tonic in the cool atrium of the Imperial Hotel.

    When to visit Delhi

    The best time to visit India is between late October and mid-March. Any earlier than October and you risk a solid drenching in the Monsoon and any later than March you will hit regular energy sapping highs of 100°F.

  • We say

    A well-established, well-run landmark.

  • A word from the hotel

    Chaotic traffic is best left to the locals. Negotiate a good price for taxis or travel on the new Delhi Metro.
