Need to rise to Taj level
Rooms are renovated and beautiful, but still carpet stinks. BF and service in restaurant is below ordinary. And, btw, why Taj Ganges and not Taj Ganga?

Our stay was excellent. Mr. Navneet from Varuna restaurant showed exceptionally hospitality. We felt so much at home just because of the way he severed us food. We hope the hotel duly takes note of it and reward him for his services.

6/10 Good

This is more like a 3 star hotel. The room we had had a musty smell that seemed to originate from the drains in the bathroom i.e. shower drain. It was quite suffocating. I'm sure they are aware of this, and read another review complaining about the same thing.
