The hotel location is not gurgaon. It is actually a kilometre after Haldiram gurgaon, just as you cross the toll plaza. This is the bad news. Almost everything else about the hotel is superb. Very comfortable, with large spacious rooms and well made bathrooms, the hotel is a perfect weekend retreat.

Colaba ideal for visiting The Gateway, Sassoon Docks, Koli fishermen's village, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and Elephanta Island. The hotels can be pricey because of the close proximity of The Taj Hotel. Its in the South of Mumbai, whereas the dynamic heart of Mumbai is in Central Mumbai.

Bombay has changed: its become 'Mumbai' and the character of the city itself has changed. But if you're a history buff, and want to delve into the things that made this city what it is, Colaba is the place to be. From the Fort area, to Marine drive, and the eastern sea front, every street corner has a story to... More
