Benazeer Hotel, Fort area.

by doofus

Hi,
Still haven't made mind up about hotel in Mumbai. I have read various reviews of the Benazeer Hotel- some good and some bad. I was wondering if anyone has stayed there or close enough to pop in and have a look at their 'deluxe' rooms. Apparently the ones overlooking the gardens are supposed to be the best.

Many thanks,

Pete

It has become more expensive than what it was a couple of years ago but I have not been there in the last few years so don't know the status of the rooms right now. Earlier it was a simple room with nothing fancy. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Aadil.

Re: Benazeer Hotel, Fort area.

Yes I will do- wherever we decide to stay. Been considering the Residency next door, apparently, to the Benazeer. Generally very positive comments on that place. I am really considering what my wife may like really. We don't go for any sort of luxury hotels anyway. Clean, safe and relatively comfortable, affordable and well situated are main priorities.

I tend to favour the Carlton or Bentleys because they are right in Colaba. The Red Shield I would love to stay at as that was the first place I stayed at on my first time in India back in early 70's! Not sure my wife would like it now though.
The YWCA also a good option but they make it so difficult to book from overseas-- have to arrange to send money orders etc which costs about £20 or so to even do that. Also they have hiked their rates a lot lately.

thanks.

The Residency next door to the Benazeer is a much better option and they have much better rooms and facilities too. I am sure you will enjoy your stay there. The Salvation Army's Red Shield Hostel is not worth staying at if you are with your wife even in the private air-conditioned rooms. The YWCA International Center has this problem which I know is not very user friendly but then the rooms are the cleanest you can get for the price they offer and their location is perfect too. Highly recommended except for the booking glitch they seem to stick with since a long time now.

Cheers,
Aadil.

Travel Tips for Mumbai

Care

by mstali

Elephanta Caves.
45 minutes ride by boat to a small island will take you to elephanta caves.
The idols have been carved out of solid rocks in caves.
A cool morning trip can revive your nerves.
The elephanta caves has the famous idol called trimurty (three faced) , you must have seen it on the coins of Indian currency.
There are monkeys on the Island, though nothing to worry about, for now the places has cafetarias serving cooldrinks , local refreshments and bottled water. There is a small fee for entrance to this site.
Boats ply between Gateway of India and Elephanta caves from morning to evening.
Best time to visit if September to January. People are always in a hurry to complete their unfinished task, but still they are helpful in ways you may be amazed. People will offer physical, moral and even financial help. The goodness in a mumbaity may be slow to come out , but it would never die.
The best part is people help strangers and then keep walking without expecting a thank you.
People from all walks of live simply merge in the crowd, you would not differntiate a millonaire from a pauper walking side by side rubbing shoulders in this financial capital of India,where the daily turnover is in billions.

Generally Safe

by keeweechic

I was given advice before going to India, not to walk on my own. Being a female, blonde and traveling alone, it was not safe. However overall I found with enough precautions, this was not a problem in most places I travelled to in India. Mumbai appeared to be fairly safe and I kept asking the question before walking in any area, prepared to heed any warnings.

Inspirational Bombay

by wrldtravler

Bombay has given inspiration to many a writers imagination, hence becoming focal point of many a novel.
To get a good feel of Bombay and get under its skin, touch its under-belly, feel its pull you might want to read the following works of literary acclaim.
Salman Rushdie - Midnights Children, The Moors Last Sigh.
Rohinton Mistry - A Fine Balance, Tales from Firozshah Baugh.
Adarshir Vakil - Beach Boy.
