Where to Stay in Mumbai?
With so many areas to choose from, hotel deals in Mumbai are relatively easy to come by. Whether you’re looking for a luxury hotel close to the Gateway to India in Colaba or a simple room in the historical district of Fort, cheap hotel deals can be found in most areas of central Mumbai.
The cheapest hotels in Mumbai tend to offer more basic accommodation but most are clean and comfortable. Colaba is the main tourist hub, thronged with hotels, restaurants and stalls selling clothes and jewellery. Fort is the original commercial district, with a mix of Victorian architecture, museums and hotels for all budgets, whilst Bandra is a suburban shopper’s paradise.
Choose a hotel close to the Santa Cruz or Chhatrapati Shivaji Airports for easy transfers to Mumbai's business district and Mumbai attractions like the Borovilli National Park. For a refreshing change, book a hotel on the shores of manmade Powai Lake in the north or watch the sunset on Juhu Beach. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a Bollywood movie shoot.

Most tourists base themselves in hotels in historic South Mumbai, the area which stretches from Mahim Creek to Colaba, but if you’re only planning a short break you might want to look at the Bandra/Juhu area which is much closer to the airport.

Transport in Mumbai
Two busy airports serve Mumbai, and it’s probably best to arrange an airport transfer to meet you. If you prefer to take a taxi, use the reliable prepaid taxi service. As most international flights arrive late at night when the streets are quieter, you’re likely to reach your hotel within an hour, even if you’re staying ‘downtown’. Be prepared for crowds of people at any time of the day. Buses and trains traverse Mumbai and are a popular choice of city transport. Auto rickshaws can only operate outside the city centre.
