Pondicherry Pondicherry didn't do much to us. It's a town. The architecture still shows that it used to be French. It has a post-office. palace hotel (opposite Amala lodge) rented us a room for Rs 400 and then turned off the Air-conditioning and demanded extra money. Fortunately the only (relatively) bad experience we had we hotels in India. We …
... rather tasty whiff of curry about us. The second half of the treatment consisted of us first attempting to get off the table, leaving us squirming like the catch of the day on a fishmongers counter because were covered in that much oil and then moving on to the steam room, which was actually conducted inside a bizarre contraption that was basically a big box with a chair inside for you to sit on and a hole in the top for our head. We were locked in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ascot Hotel Mumbai (Bombay)
Hotel moderno y bien localizado
Muy sorprendidos con la calidad del hotel.Hotel nuevo, con habitaciones confortables, modernas y limpias. Buena ubicación, en una calle tranquila y cercana a la Gate of India. Para los precios de los hoteles en Mumbai, el Ascot tiene muy buena relación calidad-precio. Recomendable.
Die besten Zimmer, die wir während unseres kompletten Aufenthalts in Indien hatten. Außergewöhnlich modern und sauber. Das Personal war sehr bemüht, uns alles recht zu machen. Kostenloses Internet. Wirklich tadellos.
Best rooms we found in the whole of our stay in India. Exceptionally modern and clean. Staff made a real effort for everything to be just right. Free Internet. Faultless really.
Great hotel but getting expensive
The Ascot is a great hotel. I have stayed there several times after fairly gruelling trips around India and it is always a real treat to arrive. The rooms are huge, really comfy beds and the bathrooms are great. My only complaint is that the prices are constantly rising. Between Jan '06 and Nov '06 the prices had risen by around 25%! What was a really good value hotel is becoming an expensive luxury, particularly by Indian prices!
Great find in busy Mumbai
The Ascot is a great value for the price. It's clean, modern, has all the mod-cons including flat-screen T.V., good A.C., moden and big bathrooms, in the heart of Colaba. It's within walking distance to the Gateway of India, the seafront and the nightlife in the neighborhood is fun with all the street vendors. The location couldn't be better and the hotel itself is great.
Wonderful modern Ascot
We checked into the Ascot hotel after an awful experience at the Godwin down the road and we were absolutely delighted we did so . The staff bent over backwards to get the room ready even though we were 3 hours early for check in . The rooms were modern and chic , clean comfortable and bright . Bathroom was spacious and spotless . Location is ideal for colaba and the gateway of india . It was a pleasure returning to this hotel at night after a hectic day battling Bombay . The staff , the facilities and cleanliness of the hotel was flawless and one of the best hotels we stayed in in our 5 week trip in india . Great value for money . Definitely recommended .
Great location, great hotel
After checking into the awful Harbour View hotel, we had to find a better place to stay. We had a look at the Ascot hotel and breathed a huge sigh of relief immediately.
The rooms are really big, with huge beds, great bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. The linen was great, satellite tv, quiet aircon.
Staff were helpful and the location was great - being a short walk from India Gateway and around the corner from a street with markets along it.
Great Place to Stay - Cleanliness is Fantastic, Standards are High
I stayed at this hotel for three days with my sister and a friend in September and we all loved it. It was safe, quiet and we found the staff were helpful. It is dominated by Arab customers - however this shows that the standards are kept high. Spacious room, big bed, great bathroom and shower. The location was alright as well in Colaba. Came across it by chance, there are a number of Hotels along that same road, but none of them really match the standards, quality and cleanliness of this hotel. I do not think it is expensive in comparison to other hotels in mumbai that offer a poorer quality of standards yet are more expensive to stay at. I would certainly stay here again
Great Value and v nice rooms
Didn't stay here so can't offer info on service but stayed next door and wished I hadn't.
The Ascot on Garden Road is a little gem of a find. Great location which is just around the corner from the Gate of India and top night spots and clubs within a short taxi ride. Busy shopping areas also on the door step. Room I saw was clean, great size and fabulous decor.
For this price, this can't be beaten. India in general lacks mid range hotels and this fits the gap nicely. Business or personal would be happy here.
