Hotel Cowie's location is very central in Colaba . the building looks shabby and the reception is awful ,but the room are enough clean and spacious. it is not noisy and ,even if,as all hotels in Mumbay is overpriced,the good location and the quality of the rooms are worth a stay.

After having gone through a very negative experience in another hotel in the same area, Cowie was the only alternative we had left in our price range (US$50)...we did feel staff were only interested in our money and all smiles disappear once you check-in...room was shabby, not clean enough but not disgustingly filthy either (we always carry disinfecting wipes, Lysol,...

We decided to treat ourselves and stay in a slightly more expensive hotel for a night. It was just OK in the end. The location is good, in central Colaba. The room was big and quite clean but there were still cockroaches that came out at night! (you don't expect that when paying so much) the bathroom has a reasonable... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and didnt like it. Rooms are not clean, breakfast is awful and the price is way to high for India. Not recommended!

After settled nicely after long train travels in bed I soon discovered that it was a bed bug feast where I was lying. I wasn't allowed to leave the hotel in the night and they put me in another room without a window. Also in that bed there were bed bugs. The day after I of course thought they would... More

Dirty linen, 1 towel for 2 people, bathroom window in full view of hotel opposite the street (no it didn't close", leaking aircon, filthy, filthy corridors (I'm sure a crack house is cleaner).... need I say more! After 1 night... had to make a speedy escape!

I stayed here for five days with my mother. As this was her first trip to India, I wanted to stay somewhere that was a little quieter to help her acclimatise. I searched on foot the many hotels in Colaba and chose Cowie's as it had some nice rooms for the price (2600 rupees for a twin, 35 pounds). We... More

Before I flew to Mumbai, I'd read that hotels were pricey and that it would be a good idea to book ahead. I hardly ever book ahead, but used Tripadvisor to select what I thought was a decent place to stay for the first few nights. Bad choice! I checked in after 4pm, and had to wait 20 mins for... More

Hotel Cowie's is in Colaba, in a street packed with other hotels, at walking distance from many of the main tourist sights and attractions. Cowies does a good deal compared to other Mumbai prices, we payed 2200 Rs per night. For the first night we were allocated a room with no window, but were moved to another the next day... More

I stayed at Hotel Cowie in Mumbai after getting stuck in the city for a few unexpected days. It is a REALLY neat old building with tons of character. The owner/staff were incredible. SO nice. Breakfast brought to you each morning. The last day, they even let us stash our back packs in their (beautiful) back room and take showers... More
