TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Diplomat Mumbai (Bombay)
In a great location behind the Taj Mahal Palace, Hotel Diplomat is a little tired. However the rooms are large and spacious and clean enough. The faciities were good and the staff very friendly. A lick of paint would go a long way! We were there for a few nights, and ying on top of the duvet to sleep, I did get bitten badly, no mosquitoes in the room so can only assume bed bugs! Discarded the duvet and slept on mattress following nights and no more bites!

Thank god for stupid, egotistical, wealthy women paying stupid money for bags, they keep about 6 people in work in that particular slum factory ! I bought a couple of Tommy Hilfiger(sp) reject wallets for the kids for £5 each.
We carried on and had a look at a ...
... Ken stayed on guard to keep an eye on our charging phones and Kate settled into a makeshift bed for a good nap. See the pic - looks so comfy. Boarding the flight to Kathmandu was a challenge as the many Nepalese travellers seemed to be very anxious or impatient or both. We politely stood our ground in the line-up through yet another carry-on x-ray check followed by security officers making sure we had a properly stamped tag on each of our bags. The ...
As we depart India after 6 weeks of travel, we leave with the greatest appreciation for this beautiful, complicated country and its truly gentle, kind and amazing people. Here are our observations of the India we have come to love, intended with good humor.
