“An easy place to sample Mumbai on a flying visit!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We stayed at the Taj Mahal Palace and obviously spent most of our time around here and loved it. A great dose of Mumbai without going too far. Great hotels, mad Indian salesmen and hawkers, maybe one two many child beggars (poor things) but all in all a wonderful place to stay!

“So clean and modernised”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

In 2007 we stayed at the Hilton and supped at the Taj; but there was nothing impressive to write home about. Now in January 2014 what a change. The sights were beautiful, the horrible smell had gone (guess the open drains were cleaned and closed) and the air was cleaner. We were also informed that more cars used gas fuel.

“Shopping on the streets”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Colaba is a great place to do your shopping on the streets. It's crowded and you must take care of your wallet and belongings. You'll get almost anything here, from clothes to bags, shoes, belts and trinkets that would otherwise cost you an arm and a leg in the branded stores.
The beauty of buying here is that you don't feel guilty when you have to throw it out because it's no longer in fashion.
I love going here. Be sure to bargain and take a local with you if possible.
