Monday March 10
After our arrival in Mumbai airport we arranged a pre-paid taxi which got us to the hotel with no detours or issues. The day was spent lazing in our room as John aimed to recover from his Delhi belly. Terrie went out and had a lovely meal at a vegetarian restaurant nearby.

John felt much better …

Mumbai... the place to start.

Josiah and I arrived in Maharashtra after 27 hours of traveling with little and uncomfortable sleep. We departed Sunday morning after deciding the day before that we would change our flights and go. We had waited long enough.

We walked out of the airport into such a high humidity that I …

"People know the price of everything and the value of nothing", Oscar Wilde once said...I reckon he was probably in Mumbai at the time!
The price you see on a menu here bears no relation to the actual cost when the bill arrives! There are so many additions made which normally equate to about 30% of the price! Yesterday we had a bill with 6 (yes …

Welcome to my first proper blog of the journey.

It has all been very overwhelming so far but definitely in a positive way. I feel like I've been in India for a month, not only 6 days.

Let me start with the flight which was an experience in itself. Everything was going swimmingly until the in-flight meal. I asked for the chicken …

Last day in Mumbai

A day of culture and trekking the streets. But before we start we can revel in the anxious articles in the Times of India about the demise of the Indian cricket team out-bowled and out-batted on a pitch of MS Dhoni's asking. We are too canny to indulge in over-optimism. Been there, done that and been disappointed before. Passing a bullock and young …

    The place is not top of the line, but for a few days and a few friendships, it is worth a stay.

    The Windsor Hotel- conveniently located in Mumbai city and within walking distance (10 - 20 minutes) of Crawford Market, CST train stations, and a multitude of restaurants and venues. Though a little overpriced for India, the cost was 550 rupees ($8.80) a night. The place was clean, the people were friendly (especially Smiley), and they served a complimentary breakfast in which you could order an omelette, "Indian breakfast" (which always changed), and Chai Masala.
    We did have a run in with bugs after a few days of dirty sheets, but upon request they immediately came and fitted new ones.

    My favorite fragment of Windsor is all the travelers we got to meet. The WiFi room seemed to be the prime spot to say "hello" to new faces and learn popular tips.

    I would suggest this place for a stay in Mumbai.

    A welcoming and good quality hotel for the price. Be aware of getting a room near the kitchen, it is noisy from 5am and until 12 pm... not great for a good nights sleep!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau Windsor Hotel Mumbai (Bombay)

    Amazing

    from

    We booked directly with the hotel through their website which was easy enough. Rooms were exceptionally modern and service was perfect. Internet was free and the location was spot on for roaming around relatively hassle-free. Just about worth the trip from the airport just for one evening in Mumbai, which took about 2 hours in each direction.

    Un hotel straordinario

    from

    Abbiamo prenotato l'hotel direttamente e con la massima facilità tramite il suo sito internet. Le camere erano incredibilmente moderne e il servizio era perfetto. La connessione a internet era gratuita e la posizione era ideale per andare in giro a piedi senza essere troppo infastiditi. Vale la pena sobbarcarsi il tragitto dall'aeroporto al centro di due ore per l'andata e due ore per il ritorno per trascorrere una serata fuori a Mumbai.

    Excellent value for money and very clean/friendly

    from

    We also made very good experiences with this hotel. We arrived by train coming from Goa at 7 in the morning and could use our room stright away. Not even a question. The owner of the hotel is very helpful as well as the rest of the staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable.

    Excellent value for money

    from

    My daughter and I stayed at the Chateau Windsor for six nights prior to flying to Goa. This is an excellent budget hotel. We were most impressed with the cleanliness, the room facilities (including room safe, AC, TV, fridge). In addition the use of the internet was free. The staff are also most welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this to both old and young persons and to women travelling alone. It is located in a safe and relatively quiet part of the city. The only difficulty we found was a means of booking. On phoning we were told the rooms were held but we manged to book via Hostelworld.

    Good clean budget hotel

    from

    i stayed here on 2 occasions with my son. It's a budget hotel but has good ,clean,air conditioned rooms with balcony. The management take a pride in the cleanliness of the rooms. Front facing rooms have a busy street outside with some traffic noise but not really intrusive.Rooms at the back are very quiet. No restaurant but excellent and inexpensive room service. Very friendly helpful staff. Situated a 40 minute taxi journey from international airport, 3,500 rupees fare ( about £4). 20 minutes taxi to the main Victoria train station.

    No mosquitos or other wildlife when we were there ( october) . Several restaurants nearby but avoid the Chinese restaurant a couple of doors away,not nice and very expensive.

    I'd stay at this hotel again.

    Very neat and clean budget hotel

    from

    grand chateau is very clean hotel , difficult for a hotel in mumbai to maintain at budget prices. they dont offer any discounts but they make up for the service and clean bedsheets.

    Great budget hotel

    from

    I have to agree with the other reviews. After searching the internet for an affordable hotel I noticed that Indian hotels are fairly expensive.

    After having a South African Airways staff member

    recommend this hotel I thought I would give it a try.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the good service we received . The building is old but the rooms and

    bathrooms are clean. This is important to the budget tourist. Finding a restaurant is not always easy but

    across the road is the Gaylords restaurant which is

    very good.Lastly I would not recommend a long stay in

    Mumbai.

    Mumbai surprise

    from

    I agree with the other review, A little gem in a top location. Not a five star property by any means but a great little hotel. The hotel looks and smells clean, the service is typical India but the staff are honest and friendly.

    A good breakfast including eggs(any style) is about USD0.75.

    The waters edge is about 50metres away, great at dusk.

    Good food is available within a block or 2.

    The hotel is on the 5th floor, an old elevator with attendant gets you there, dont be put off by the entrance to the building, the rooms are worth the ride.

    A Mumbai gem

    from

    I visited Mumbai in November 2004 to watch an international cricket match there. I stayed 7 nights at the Chateau Windsor. It is located very close to the Wankede Cricket stadium so was excellently located for my needs. It is also well located for general tourist needs - close to the main railway stations & touristy areas of Colaba & Fort, & about a 20 minute walk from the Gateway to India. It is in a quiet (by Indian standards) tree lined street. The double room I had was newly decorated & spotlessly clean, with an equally clean ensuite shower & toilet. It also had air conditioning (a must in Mumbai) & a cable TV which has a good selection of channels in English. The hotel is actually on the fifth floor of an apartment & office building - you get to reception via a small lift from the ground floor lobby. The building is quite old (50's?) but well maintained & rather quaint. The only downside is that there is no restaurant, but there is a room service breakfast available at extra cost. However there are plenty of restaurants located within yards of the hotel, including a Pizza Express,a Chinese restaurant, & the wonderfully named Gaylord which serves an excellent range of southern Indian dishes.
