Excellent location in quiet green area of Colaba. Reasonable rates (3000 rupees/54 euros) and good value for the money and a place to relax away from Mumbai caothic traffic. Ample rooms and nice TV set. Good service and better breakfast. In the Reception, talk to Singh, the big bearded sij: he rules.

I stayed here during December with my family - we had booked 3 deluxe rooms. We had a lot of hassle regarding the booking -only 2 of the rooms were available and they were going to transfer us to the hotel next door which I refused. With al ot of arguing we managed to get what we had asked for... More

First of all, travelers should note to leave their expectations and standards for hotels at home before departing to India. This is step one. Otherwise, most reviews of anything less than 4/5 stars will be negative. With that said, the Hotel Godwin was a 3 star hotel in India. It was ok. The bed/sheets were clean. The security was excellent.... More

I guess the big thing to remember is that you're in India and you can't expect the norm if you're a westerner or a Kiwi like me. The booking via internet was fine and they arranged the transfer where a driver was waiting for us. The hotel itself was pretty average. If you're travelling on a buget and are expecting... More

This hotel is a disgrace. If you can book the Ascot two doors down that looks much better. The breakfast were a disgrace, can't get a seat and the food is horrible. The staff and not great and don't live up to their word. I would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone!

We arrived at what we thought would be a pleasant stay in mumbai. There was a problem with the power and on arrival at 17:30 hours, we were told it would be half an hour before it was fixed. We were shown to our rooms on the 3rd floor, a bit disappointing especially as we had requested rooms on a... More

My husband and I booked in to the Godwin hotel for 3 nights in December 2006. We must admit the Godwin was not our first choice! But we had left it too late to get bookings at other hotels in the Colaba district of South Mumbai, so when we managed to get a booking at the Godwin we were happy... More

I spent a week at the Godwin and it seemed just fine to me - nothing special, but friendly, helpful, well managed and clean. Just make sure you get a room on the upper floors - 7 or 8 - the lower ones can be a bit dingy. The manager was helpful - he organised for me to get an... More

Had a great room on 7th floor with everything necessary. Large well appointed room with great views of rooftops, friendly service and excellent breakfast and room service. Location is great, particularly as it is down a leafy sidestreet.
