The chaos of a group of research students descending on a newly opened hotel could be overwhelming to many but Lizzie and Gian and the rest of the amazing crew there were nothing but hospitable and helpful! The entire hotel is perfect: from it's clean postmodern vibe, to the reading nook and splashes of vibrant color, and their fantastic breakfast- it was the best place to come back and relax in after a long day. On one particularly long (and hot) day, they even went out and brought me a beer while I did paperwork!
Every detail is thought out and carefully curated to keep you happy and comfortable and the people who run Abode are the kind you want to be friends with. It was a wonderful experience and we are so lucky to have been able to stay with Abode on our visit to Bombay. I will definitely be staying here on subsequent trips and look forward to the accommodations as much as the city!

Kristin - thank you so much for your review. You guys really were SO patient with us, not even officially being open when you visited. This makes your kind comments even more meaningful. Please come back (now that we have everything working!) and we will bring you many more chilled beers. Lizzie & Gian

We stumbled upon this place at the last minute before traveling to Bombay, and we almost couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the photos, neighborhood, and price point. Abode is an unbelievable steal (we hope it stays that way!) in a neighborhood that is rapidly becoming cost prohibitive, especially for us wayward grad students. The affordability factor, though, was all the more magical given how lovely Abode is -- this place simply oozes with aesthetic charm. The rooms and cafe have been beautifully designed, the bed makes you sleep like royalty (I could seriously write an entire review just based on how much I loved the bed), and the staff are all warm and welcoming, which made our stay feel incredibly cozy and memorable. We look forward to coming back, again and again and again!

Room Tip: Just an FYI for those who choose the "Basic Room" option, these rooms do not have an ensuite toilet, only a shower and sink. This was not a big deal (especially given how affordable the basic rooms are), but I had somehow overlooked it when booking, and was surprised upon arrival, so just thought I would point it out for others!

Abode Bombay has been open for only a short period of time. It is centrally located in Colaba. Just a short walk from the Taj Hotel. This awesome ,20 room place ,has been totally revamped by the creative endeavours of live wire Lizzie Chapman. Each room is very stylishly presented with everything sourced from Mumbai. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and I loved the way the housekeeper turned the covers down and placed flowers and a handwritten card on the bed. Hot water is never an issue and the bathrooms are stylishly funky.Breakfasts were varied,different fruits, breads,cereals and decent coffee were available. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of life in Mumbai. They all ,especially Imran who drove my son to North Mumbai and back,went out of their way to help make our stay exceptional. We really appreciated the way no one hung around waiting for tips ,as is often the case in hotels in India. Many thanks to Lizzie for the culinary advice and Gian for helping with travel plans. I knew That Abode Bombay was going to be a different Indian experience when we got picked up from the railway station by Husna, a female driver and a rarity in India. I thoroughly recommend Abode Bombay .Many thanks James and Windon

A Great space where good design and attention to detail is surely going to make visitors coming here again.This location in Mumbai has been crying out for hotels such as this one. It is the perfect mix of Modern and Indian Kitsch.
Will recommend it to all my friends visiting Mumbai.

really great hotel. to start with it is perfectly located in the best part of the city to see Mumbai. a really cool and relaxing place which seems a million miles away from the hectic streets only metres away. the staff are really friendly and helpfull, Lizzie spent a long time with us recommending places and drawing maps! Our room was a delight to stay in with cosy beds, shower and bath ac and tv. well worth a visit!
