My two friends and I planned a weekend trip to Mumbai in February 2015 and heard about Hotel Encounter from one of our Australian friends who had stayed there in the past. I'll start by saying I have NEVER met a staff friendlier than those at Hotel Godwin. We arrived after a 2 hour taxi ride where our driver got... More

My family and I stayed here for one night in the Family Suite. The decor in the room was tasteful and the use of marble was amicable in true Indian beauty. The staff are amazingly friendly and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The breakfast area was small and had too many table and chairs that made it look and... More

Mr Singh's words to us as we checked in proved to be very accurate. The Godwin could probably be cheaper (Bombay is expensive), but it's very comfy, the service is great and the location is fantastic. Such a great area, lovely to walk around, great food and close to eveything.

From Mumbai Airport it is a quiet a distant/time especially if you hit traffic, but the area is quiet an away from the traffic. The Gateway is only 7 minutes walk away. The reception service and general staff are excellent and the and are always there... More

Booked here after our previous hotel did not uphold our booking. The staff are really friendly and helpful, location great, rooftop bar has amazing views but the rooms are a bit grubby and its massively overpriced. Maybe we were charged more because of our situation but even so, the quality did not reflect the price. Wifi was pretty good, food... More

This is a good value hotel, clean, neat, and in a top location. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Good food at very reasonable price. They don't advertise the roof top bar and restaurant but should. Good views to the harbour from there.

Quite a good ,centrally located Hotel in Colaba. The free breakfast was ok.The staff are good and help and look after you. Did not have any food in the hotel so can't comment on that. The view from the rooftop restaurant is great!

We did not book this hotel ourselves----travel company arranged it. We are not really fussy, but there are items we like. We were very surprised at the lack of cleanliness; if grass could grow in bathroom mold, there would be enough for a golf course! Our room had a step-up of approx. 18" to get into the bathroom. The bed... More

Couldn't spend one night. The room was dirty, the walls grubby, the bathroom shabby, and the shower drain was clogged with hair and grime. It was 11:30 pm but we decided to cut our losses and booked elsewhere.

We arrived at night and were checked into room 606 which we found disappointing; the room was clean and big but very tired and lacking in any charm. The bathroom could have done with some exit mould on the grout and around the pipes, etc. Breakfast was okay. We can't comment on the value for money as it was booked... More
