Clearly this isn't usually somewhere a backpacker would stay but my partner treated us to it for her last night in India. It's really convenient for the airport too and they offer a free shuttle service. The staff are lovely and polite, breakfast was included and fantastic. WiFi is free and is worked well. The room was lovely and clean. The lights are controlled by iPod which is awesome. The only complaint I would have is that we clearly booked a double room, it stated double room in writing on our booking, and they put us in a twin. Unfortunately, we're a lesbian couple so it's not like we could kick up a fuss :/
Oh, and I only put this in because it amused us... We ordered the cheese platter off the room service and were delivered 10 slices of still-wrapped processed cheese. Classic :)

One of my favourite things to wake up to, apart from breakfast in bed consisting of a large pile of bacon and half a cheesecake, is the cry of "Chaaiiii chaaiiii garam chaiiii garam garam chaiiii garam" as the chai wallah makes his way up and down overnight public transport offering up tiny ₹10 cups of tasty, hot, sugary beverage. I love …
Arriving in mumbai following a night flight and so far the best food on the plane giving us good hope for the Indian Cuisine.
We were then met by our lovely taxi drivers, which actually happened to be 'helpful' porters that lied and just wanted a tip for showing us where the taxi was - without even carrying our bags! We soon sent them off and went on the craziest drive ever ito central Mumbai. 90 minutes and costing 6.50 - bargain!
... re astounded to find that the hotel is, in fact, on the corner of Marine Drive. It's on the third floor of a kind of modern tenement building and none of its windows overlook the harbour but it's location is perfect. It's like an Indian version of Travel Lodge. Tiny but spotless, rooms with soft beds and fluffy pillows. It's bliss.
We go off in search of food - I've only had a hard boiled egg and a packet of crisps to eat all day. Ian has also eaten ...
... of Steel, aka The Tandoor Fanatic. Nick succumbed to his own bout of Mumbai tummy (and fever troubles) for the first 2 days of our trip (he had a tv and air-con, don't worry Hausman fam). This also meant it was time to "do the needful". We had Western food multiple times, AND we enjoyed it. Mumbai is a food lovers paradise, for all kinds of nosh! We had real FRESH bread (you'll understand this incredible feeling if you've ever been to Asia for more than 2 weeks), ...
Without getting too much into details my train ride was brilliant. Coach new and nicely air conned, food served 3 times a day. Tasty as well. My final stop is at the station I haven't been before but according to a guy from the travel agency it should be close to Bandra Station - within a short rickshaw drive from Vikram's. It turns out it's a bit more complicated than that. It's already dark and I have to walk quite a distance from a big ...
