Coloba and The causeway is a great way to absorb the atmosphere of indian culture and the heritage of the British Rule.

Colaba is situated in the south Mumbai on the bank of sea. Most of tourist attractions like Gateway of India, Taj Hotel are in Colaba. Best place for foreign visitors. Very neat and clean place.

This is that Mumbai, you are probably going for. It would be the best place to get your hotel, because most of the historic sites are there. Most of the tours will be based out of, or at least your there. If you stay elsewhere, cheap cab rides should get you there. Start at "India Gate".
