We were only here for 1 night as we were on our way to Aurangabad. Room 205 was what weary travelers need; a good shower, quiet, and comfy mattress. Glad we picked this hotel! Prior to my arrival, I had called to find out if I should book an airport transfer as we we're arriving at 1.30am. The manager, Neil,... More

Excellent rooms, very spacious, very clean. Free internet, which is very reliable. Tea & coffee in the rooms, together with 2 litres of free bottled water each day. Great... More

We were in Mumbai for one night and found The Gordon House to be a reasonable price and in the area we wanted to visit. The room was not very large, especially the batroom but we liked the decor from the British Days.

A simple looking white coloured building could deceive you from its facade. But, this could be one of your memorable hotel stays. The service of the hotel is professional and warm. Hotels are designed in different themes. Choose the theme of your choice before you check in. I'd recommend mediterranean. Please make sure to try as many places around the... More

I have been staying at the hotel quite regularly. One great plus with this hotel is its location - right behind the Gateway of India - an iconic landmark. Reaching the hotel by bus or taxi is not a problem at all. The restaurant - Stir Fry serves some good oriental dishes and is quite popular among the residents in... More

The hotel was small and cozy, In a good neighborhood and had an excellent group of staff especially the manager sunil. Try the food at all-stir fry, it's worth it. Neighborhood was clean and it wasn't risky walking around late.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our wedding anniversary weekend. The only reason we wanted to stay at this hotel is because it's located bang opposite the apartment we used to live in together before we got married in May last year - and we figured it would be like walking down memory lane for us.

we took a scandinavian room and that too at a good tariff (double occupancy). I had earlier stayed in their other property which is also theme based hotel and expected Gordon House to be at far if not superior on all the amenities. But this property turned out to be huge disappointment. The rooms were very basic, though they were... More

I am very satisfied with my 2 recent stays at the Gordon House Hotel. One of the best points of the hotel is its location. It is located near the Regal cinema, a very well-known place in Mumbai. I had only to tell taxi drivers that my hotel was located just behind the Regal, and they always understood where to... More
