Stayed in the Leela because of it's location close to the airport (10 minutes). Thankfully it is far enough away to not hear the planes at any time. Staff are very very welcoming when you first arrive and personally show you to your room asking if you have any questions and showing you around. The hotel is a little dated as it was built 30 years ago, but it has stood the test of time and is still very beautiful, thankfully the bits that needed it have been renovated.
The rooms are of a good size with a lovely bathroom that has obviously been changed recently. The desks even have plug adapters built into the back of the desk so whatever country you are from there is always power for your electronic essentials! All the usual amenities, plus slippers which is always a bonus. Free bottle of water and apples in the room on arrival.
The pool area is large and spacious with huge trees growing around it to give some natural shade (there is still plenty of space for sunning ones self though!) There are bars around the poolside and even a fountain with coy carp swimming. The bars and restaurants are lovely and there are 6 to choose from so plenty of choice. The room service is also very extensive and quite quick.
It's a long drive into the centre of Mumbai about an hour from the hotel, but the business district is very close by. Overall a lovely hotel in a great location, very much enjoyed my stay here.
