Decided to stay at this place while on an official visit to Mumbai. The place has less than basic facilities, the staff expects tips for every small work, rooms are ill equipped, and therefore small things like toiletries, mosquito repellant etc need to be asked for. Lenin old and in shreds. A colleague of mine had to make do with... More

The room had no hot water, everytime we needed something we tipped the hotel staff that helped us which wasn't a problem,but then you get hotel staff that didn't help us for anything knocking on our door asking for money! We checked out much early than normal time however "Tax" was demanded from us from hotel management which was outrageous... More

Hotel Cowie's location is very central in Colaba . the building looks shabby and the reception is awful ,but the room are enough clean and spacious. it is not noisy and ,even if,as all hotels in Mumbay is overpriced,the good location and the quality of the rooms are worth a stay.

After having gone through a very negative experience in another hotel in the same area, Cowie was the only alternative we had left in our price range (US$50)...we did feel staff were only interested in our money and all smiles disappear once you check-in...room was shabby, not clean enough but not disgustingly filthy either (we always carry disinfecting wipes, Lysol,...

We decided to treat ourselves and stay in a slightly more expensive hotel for a night. It was just OK in the end. The location is good, in central Colaba. The room was big and quite clean but there were still cockroaches that came out at night! (you don't expect that when paying so much) the bathroom has a reasonable... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and didnt like it. Rooms are not clean, breakfast is awful and the price is way to high for India. Not recommended!

After settled nicely after long train travels in bed I soon discovered that it was a bed bug feast where I was lying. I wasn't allowed to leave the hotel in the night and they put me in another room without a window. Also in that bed there were bed bugs. The day after I of course thought they would... More

Dirty linen, 1 towel for 2 people, bathroom window in full view of hotel opposite the street (no it didn't close", leaking aircon, filthy, filthy corridors (I'm sure a crack house is cleaner).... need I say more! After 1 night... had to make a speedy escape!

I stayed here for five days with my mother. As this was her first trip to India, I wanted to stay somewhere that was a little quieter to help her acclimatise. I searched on foot the many hotels in Colaba and chose Cowie's as it had some nice rooms for the price (2600 rupees for a twin, 35 pounds). We... More

Before I flew to Mumbai, I'd read that hotels were pricey and that it would be a good idea to book ahead. I hardly ever book ahead, but used Tripadvisor to select what I thought was a decent place to stay for the first few nights. Bad choice! I checked in after 4pm, and had to wait 20 mins for... More
