“Does the job”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Decent location, pretty quiet, nice a clean, helpful staff. Good value by comparison to some of the other options in Delhi. Right by the Taj Mahal Palace (worth a visit for a cracking breakfast) and India Gate.

Room Tip: Go for one with a harbour view.

We have stayed at the Harbour View many times over the years. It is in a great location on the water down from the famous Taj Hotel, in a wonderful part of Mumbai. It is not cheap, but much cheaper than the Taj (which is easy to visit for meals, etc). We have gotten to know the staff and find them very friendly, helpful and enjoyable. They treat us like family. Last time we were there in Jan 2013 it needed painting inside and out which they said they were planning. It is a little funky but we like it and always stay there.

This hotel has a fantastic location overlooking the sea and the Gateway of India. The standard room we stayed in was pokey and the unconfortable twin beds with thin mattressess were oushed up against the wall, making it difficult to get out of bed without disturbing the other.The superior rooms were being upgraded and were not available.
The room was reasonably clean but ledges were dusty and the window didn't open and there was no balcony. The terrace just outside our room was lovely as were the restaurant staff. The elevator played the Lambada every time the door opened which could be heard in our room and so really got on our nerves! Okay for a night or two but no longer and always go for a superior room.

Room Tip: Superior rooms over looking the sea.

just about OK service , but a fabulous view from the rooftop restaurant. Don't miss the morning sunrise with a hot cup of tea. nice location for any job in south Bombay. loved the Indian navy band that marches down the street in the evening. value for money.slightly pricey for budget travelers, but as I said the view compensates for it.

Room Tip: before booking from travel sites, contact hotel directly : you may get a good deal...

Right in Colaba, but miles away from all the hustle and bustle of traffic and hawkers, the Harbour View Hotel rooftop bar, is (as the name suggests) a good place to drink a cold beer looking over the harbour and India Gate. Nothing fancy or so-so romantic. No. Just a good spot to relax for a while or sip a quiet sundowner (and that’s no nonsense in Bombay).

I cannot begin to explain how unhappy we were that we chose this hotel and I am hoping that this review may help fellow travellers reconsider where they chose to stay. We booked a deluxe room with a sea view. While I can get over the old rooms, the paper thin walls, the shabby interior, I cannot accept the service. I truly have not experienced such bad service in all my travels. We were met by a man behind the reception who muttered 2 words 'passport? and key.' and pointed in the direction of our room. When we asked for a map, he said they don't have maps. The bed was a wooden box with thin foam mattress, bed sheet that looked 30 years old and you could hear everything in the hallways and surrounding rooms. The lift sang Jennifer Lopez every time someone got in or out which is very frustrating as it goes all hours of the day. This place was ridiculously overpriced and not worth one cent of what we paid. After one night we checked in to another hotel. When we did this, the same man behind the desk said 'well what do you want me to do?'. We knew then that we had made the right decision to leave. The location is not worth it, I would highly recommend staying elsewhere in Mumbai.

Stay here and you will be right in the middle of things. The roof top restaurant overlooks the harbour and the Gateway to India, serving good food all day and also with well priced cold beer. The rooms are clean and spacious with AC and plenty of hot water. There are so many staff you wonder what they all do - they even put the key in the lock for you. Outside you are an entertaining stroll from markets, trains, the Taj Mahal Hotel and all the attractions of Colaba. Next time I find myself in Mumbai this is where I will stay.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be well away from noise
