TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Juhu Plaza Mumbai (Bombay)
Athough the location in Juhu may be an advantage we found this Hotel to be in need of some make over. The bathroom desperately needed a good clean; we were told there were NO non-smoking rooms; towels were stained, cups needed a scrub etc. No free Wifi meant grappling with hot spot alternatives which can be a nuisance. Staff were very helpful and all our requests were dealt with as soon as possible.

... agent who tried to rip us off and got angry when we said we'd look about a bit more and then headed to grab a taxi back to the hotel. Finding a taxi in Mumbai is easy, finding one that will turn their meter on is a lot harder and after asking 10 or more taxis we settled for Rs100 which was double the price of the meter to get there.
The next day we were up early after our early night and headed out to find the travel agents to book our bus tickets for that night ...
... belt stopped we didn’t know what to do. Looking around we realized that there were actually still quite a few people in our same boat and since misery loves company we felt a little better; at least we could all band together to complain profusely to the baggage counter. After another minute and just as we were about to go find someone to speak to the belt lurched back to life and sure enough a fresh set of bags (including ours!) came out one by one.
... a half through really choppy sea. Several people started to vomit and Willem went completely white. Luckily I don't get sea sick and once back on land, relaxed with a Chai until Willem felt ok enough to carry on. This time we caught the train to Charni road where we heard was a happening place along the promenade. It was a pretty area and there were lots of people sat, watching the sea. We walked up and down, sat for a while chatting to locals then got bored and ...
... packed day. After an early breakfast
we headed up to Dhobi Ghat, an amazing site. This is where most of Mumbai's washing is done, slapped on washing rocks and soaked in big vats - probably where the washing we'd had done at a place next to our hotel had gone to. We thought it would just be people's existing clothes that would be washed here, but a lot of newly manufactured clothes - shirts, jeans etc ...
... not even full in Indian terms. We were shuffled back so people could get off at the next couple of stops. We got off at another station. And wandered around - this time all the shops were about computers, CCTV, components, people fixing boards, USB connections etc. There would have been well over couple of hundred shops selling the same things. Here I had my first run in with a car, the mirror hit my elbow. The driver appeared not to be very happy, bad luck ...
