“Understated elegance plus plus...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

This is the place if you like understated elegance, class and a subtle level of personalised service.the rooms are up to date in all that one may need, have an air of being classy and yet not snobby. Location is a super plus if you want to be in south Bombay....great food, shopping and the sea are literally a stone's throw.

Have stayed there periodically over many years and the hotel and it's staff never disappoint. Highly recommended both for business travellers and also if you want to combine a week end with a show at NCPA followed by a stroll on the sea front !

The Gordon House was referred to me by a friend. His words were - when I don't get to stay at the TAJ (for those who are not aware, The Gordon House is just behind Taj at gateway of India).

With this in mind, I was expecting high standards from the Hotel - and I was certainly not disappointed. Right from reservation to check-in and during my 3 day stay at the hotel.

Location - Excellent location in Colaba. Everything, great eating joints, street shipping, sea is right at your doorstep.

Rooms - Spacious, Ample, well furnished and Clean (including the loos).

Management - The Manager (Mr Avisnash) was very helpful throughout as were the rest of his staff.

Food - The breakfast is elaborate (given this is not a big starred hotel). Selection of Paranthas, Eggs made to choice, Fresh juice, cheese, fruits, Cereals, cold cuts et.al

Budget - We got a deal of INR 6500 including taxes and Breakfast and Free & fast wifi - which I consider to be spot on.

The Icing on the Cake is their Pan Asian Restaurant - ALL STIR FRY. While I was tempted to try all meals there, unfortunately could check it out only for 1 dinner. Very Happy with the quality and Quantity of food served. The small, but well stocked Bar within the restaurant has decent collection and pricing


OVERALL - I would recommend this place Full On

I had heard a lot of good things about this hotel in the past, decided to try it while travelling on business recently, and must say all was correct, very conveniently located in Colaba very close to Gateway of India, Bade-Mia (if you enjoy rustic mumbai treats) Cafe Mondegar, Leopold and The iocnic Taj Hotel...

Good breakfast would not call it lavish but wholesome, nice clean room, clean bathrooms, good internet overall great value for money, I was a bit worried when I read reviewers talking about a nightclub at the Hotels and it getting noisy so checked before making the booking and was confirmed that Night Club is shut now with no plans to reopen it.

This is a good option if you are in Mumbai. it was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there a few years ago, and I was not disappointed.
Spacious room, clean bathroom, great shower. Good guest amenities provided. free Wi-Fi, which was great. The stir fry restaurant in the building serves great food, the breakfast though I thought was average.
Great location, walking distance to the gate of India, the ferry's to Elephanta, the Taj Hotel.
in a buzzing alive area, restaurants, pubs, shopping all a few steps away.
The staff are great, helpful and accommodating.
Definitely a good choice.

Clean good budget hotel in the heart of Colaba. Good for both business travellers as well as tourists. Rooms were clean and housekeeping was done daily. The breakfast spread was elaborate and food is tasty. They ran out of juice but immediately replaced with another flavour. A good stay overall. Recommend it for staying in this part of Mumbai.

Arrived late around 3:30am. I had paid for the whole day to avoid any delays during checking-in... but they did not have my reservation handy and I had to pay again so i could sleep and they said they would look for the reservation during the day. Woke up and the manager came to me saying they had found the reservation in their spam box. But did not offer any compensation for the delay in the arrival. Breakfast is served in a fancy restaurant which is nice and with variety. The rooms are nice I had the triple room, had asked for a double and a single bed but did not honor that. The main thing here is the location few steps from Gate of India and Taj Mahal hotel and also around several restaurants, cafes, stores. When in Gate of India you can catch the boat to go to Elephanta Island and also some other spots. The street is safe likewise Mumbai, of course it is a big city so the common sense is the rule. From the airport to the hotel you get a prepaid taxi which is around $700 rupees. Taxis are all over and they are cheap eventhough the drivers always try to take advantage but if you know the distances you can ask for a better price. If you ask for meters they will do it if the distance is far, but it is still cheap. Mumbai is nice city but traffic is chaotic but if you know that in advance you can have some fun out of it.

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights while I was in Mumbai for business. Having read all of the reviews about the noise from the nightclub I was quite worried, but don’t worry, the club has closed down so when I stayed (late March 2014) there was no bothersome noise and I had a perfect night’s sleep.

The hotel is in a brilliant location, just a very short walk from the Taj Palace Hotel and the Gateway to India and there a numerous tasty restaurants on the doorstep (The Table is particularly good, just next door)

Staff were both friendly and very helpful and I found the room to be very comfortable, clean and secure with every facility available that I required.

The hotel is a lovely small boutique hotel and each floor has a different theme which makes for a pleasant and enjoyable stay. If you like the big fancy hotels with chandeliers in the lobby, this isn’t the place for you, but if you want somewhere clean, safe, and comfortable in a brilliant location I cannot recommend the Gordon House Hotel highly enough.

I will definitely stay here again.
