... every week for a tenner. I've had suits tailored for me. I've not had to iron a single shirt, cook or clean the flat once. I've walked into pretty much every club, bar and restaurant I've wanted to without queuing. I've partied till dawn on the roof of a hotel and for a week in Goa. I've experienced more sights, sounds and smells than in years in England. Bombay is a place full of contradictions. I've seen really terrible things - children with sliced-off ears, old men ...

The second day in Mumbai was a day of extremes...from elaborate, fancy wedding parties, to the poorest people living on the streets. Mumbai itself is a city where wealth and poverty are literally at each other's doorstep. Cramped, slums can literally be steps away from a huge, palatial home. It is impossible not to see both when in this city.
The day started with the henna ceremony. It was a gathering of the grooms side (the bride had her own ceremony with her ...

We were soon surrounded by a huddle of boys with representation from a large proportion of the male age range on offer. A street vendor, selling children's jeans and shirts was setting up his stall infront of us, helped by a small harem of boys. The owner, who must have been in his forties - ...

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.
