The Taj Mahal Palace was opened in December 1903 by the wealthy businessman Tata and has become the go-to hotel for visiting heads of state and dignitaries ever since. The building itself is stunning and the pool area is unforgettable. Even if you don't stay there, I'd suggest visiting if you're in Mumbai. The recently added modern concrete tower breaks the aesthetic harmony a little, though.
This is a large hotel with 287 rooms and a commercial gallery, through which it connects to the Trident Hotel. It's on Marine Drive, a long promenade in a lively area south of the city. It was remodelled in 2010, following the terrorist attacks from the 27th of November 2008 on two hotels. There's complete security to enter the hotel that reviews your bag, camera, purse or car you each time you enter. The hotel is really great, with a nice pool overlooking the Arabian Sea. It has several restaurants serving Italian, Indian, and fast food. As for the rooms, they offer beautiful views of the sea and the city befitting a 5 star category with all amenities. There are no negatives about this hotel. You have half an hour of free WiFi per day.
From the third floor of the hotel you can see the city moving below. The classic "auto-rickshaw," the motorbikes, cars and the crowd is a spitting image of the twenty-first century India. This hotel provides cleanliness, a shower and very attentive service for only € 8 which is actually a bit pricey for what you can find in India. The temperature is well regulated so that you never feel too hot or too cold. Its location is also great, right below is the stop for a bus that is always going to and from other cities. My video is of me from the balcony of my "room." I was acting a bit foolish but it was from the excitement of the moment. Nashik was one of the cities with the most fascinating Hindu culture.
From the door of my hotel I saw this - some taxis, some vans, stalls and people here "pa yá". At least it was clean, something that you'll have to be alert for in almost all hotels and mid-priced hostel, in Bombay hygiene leaves much to be desired. The good thing was that it was in a lively area with possibility to start making contact with people who can advise you the first few days that are very difficult in this kind of city. The price ranges 6 and 9 euros depending on the season. Note: If you leave the front desk, with a little luck and if you have enough time, you can work as an extra in "boliwood", there are always people in the neighborhood capturing European extras to make a "movie" or TV program, it is a hilarious experience, you get to eat and at the end of the day you get paid.
A good hotel, very popular with tourists (better to book a long time in advance). It has an excellent location: you can walk to the main attractions in South Mumbai, like the famous Victoria Station, the Gateway of India and the Taj Hotel, where presidents are housed. There's no restaurant here, except the pleasant breakfast buffet. The staff are very professional. There are some decent restaurants nearby, as well as a Cook travel agency. If you take a taxi, ask them to use a meter instead of the flat rate: they tend to try to offer western prices to foreign visitors.
It's difficult to find a hotel in Colaba without tearing your hair out, as you'll be accosted by PR types looking to earn a commission. Therefore, I strongly recommend this place to anyone on a modest budget. It's clean, with shared bathrooms, and the staff are flexible and helpful (you can leave your luggage, book taxis, or even ask them to make food). As in the rest of India, you might be accosted by people looking to make a fast buck, but you're in a nice location in the heart of Colaba, and it's very well-soundproofed.
