If you want a great location(Gateway of India and the Taj) and an even more convenient hop to the nearest Starbuck or Colaba Social, then Hotel Diplomat is the place to book. It is budget, basic and simple. Perhaps a great stay for a pit stop.

Even for hot water, you need to put on the geyser. The rooms have window Acs. But this is not a heritage hotel. Still the hotel charges a... More

This hotel is located just behind the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace, exactly opposite to Starbucks and at throw away distance to The Gateway of India. A few seconds walk to the shopping streets of Colaba Causeways, Seashore. Leopold cafe and a very famous regal theatre. Though it is some 40yr old hotel, it is keeping up with contemporary style. Rooms... More

I have a bad back and I often find the beds in mid range Indian hotels just tooooooo hard. As a result the second day... More
