      Fabulous Location in Mumbai

      The Residency Hotel Fort is in the perfect location in Mumbai. The area is pedestrian friendly with wide sidewalks, lots of shady trees and it is near many attractions, all within walking distance. The room was modern with all the conveniences of a 4 star hotel at a reasonable rate in a good location. Breakfast was included in our price, although the rate of 100 rupees for other guests was very reasonable for a small buffet with eggs to order. Staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. We stayed in the Club Annex. Larger rooms with free wi-fi and breakfast. The main hotel was under construction, so we wanted the quiet of the annex.

      Good Hotel


      Stayed for 2 nights Staff were very good and room very clean

      Restaurant never open ? But So many more just a few mins away

      It Was My Very first time in mumbia so some of the things did spoil my stay none however was to do with the hotel And My Second stay in mumbia was so much fun

      All In All for the price you pay its very good service .must agree

      wouldnt bother with the pick up catch a pre paid taxi


      p.s The photos on there web page are old so its not as clean as it looks but dont worry its still ok

      Not bad, not good


      A couple of nights in Mumbai before heading back home, I wanted someplace that many travelers had recommended while still be "budget" price. The Residency sounded good.

      Got there at anight, the driver from the airport got a little lost on the way and the street has two names, so Gun Bow really was not the right one to use.

      The reception was, shall we say, typical--indifferent to the point of almost rude. The upper floor room was tiny, dingy with a lumpy bed. The bathroom functional but unattractive.

      Of course, there was the street noise, but then one is in a city.

      Frankly, I do not know why any would rave about the place, it was alright. The neighborhood was a little dodgy, the front desk did not give me any messages which caused no end of grief as to meeting a friend. I did not try the restaurant--do they even have a restaurant? The free internet in the lobby was completely dominated by one guest and the staff did nothing about it. Fortunately there was a little internet "cafe" around the corner--go through the watch shop up a tiny flight of stairs.

      The area was pretty dark at night tho, in the direction of colaba there were some cool restaurants.

      All in all not good, not bad. But I will not book this place again. There has to be someplace a little bit better.

      Never again


      We stayed in a double deluxe room, the most expensive published rate on the website. The beds were small and hard, the aircon very noisy and not working properly. The bathroom was also not very nice, no toilet paper, no bath. The night staff when we arrived 3 am were very friendly but not the daytime staff. We had to catch a train at 19:00 the same day and after checking out at 12:00 pm we left our luggage in the lobby, secured by a piece of string (no locker)!! When we returned in the afternoon for our luggage we asked if we could use a room quickly to refresh, but were told that the hotel was fully booked. Later, as we waited in the lobby two groups of people came in without reservation and asked for rooms. They were informed that there were rooms available and taken up to the rooms to have a look. Both groups left the hotel without accepting the rooms - a good indication that they were not satisfied with the rooms. We chose the Residency in favour of the Suba Palace where we stayed before because of very good tripadvisor reviews, but will definitely return to the Suba Palace next time, which is more expensive but certainly worth every cent in comparison with the Residency.

      Excellent Central Bombay hotel


      We spent 5 nights in the Residency Hotel in the Fort district of Bombay. It is central- a short walk to Flora Fountain, spotlessly clean and terrific value. The staff are all very helpful and whilst it is not a five star hotel it is certainly a good three or even four star. The downside is that the rooms are very small and there is very limited storage space-we lived out of our suitcase on the floor. Also whilst there is a dining area there is no bar or communual area to sit in at night- a real pity. Try the Brighton bar just opposite.

      In our room the AC worked, but the controls were not working and the louvre window in the bathroom was broken-they did fix it whilst we were there. Also it is quite noisey- a lot of banging from other buildings nearby often till quite late.

      Loved the Residency!


      I stayed at the Residency for 1 week; and then returned to spend another 3 days. This is gem of a hotel, perfectly located for exploring Mumbai. The rooms were spotless and the staff friendly and helpful. The price is a bargain for Mumbai. Many good restaraunts are located in the area, within easy walking distance (check the Lonely Planet Guide for restaraunts). The hotel is not a luxury hotel (like the Sea Princess, Juhu Beach, which I also stayed at, but I definately preferred the Residency for its many good qualities.

      Ich war begeistert vom Residency!


      Ich habe eine Woche im Residency verbracht, und kam dann zurück, um noch drei Tage dort abzusteigen. Dies ist ein Juwel von einem Hotel mit perfekter Lage zur Erkundung Mumbais. Die Zimmer waren makellos sauber und das Personal freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Preis ist wirklich günstig für Mumbai. In der Nähe gibt es viele gute Restaurants, die man leicht zu Fuß erreichen kann (sehen Sie im Lonely Planet-Reiseführer nach Restaurants). Es ist kein Luxushotel (wie das Sea Princess am Juhu Beach, in dem ich auch gewohnt habe; aber ich ziehe definitiv das Residency vor aufgrund seiner vielen Vorteile).

      Very good hotel - except the airport pickup


      I stayed in this hotel in January 2007. For the money, it is an excellent choice: central, clean, comfortable and with free internet connection. I had exactly the same experience as the other reviewer in respect of the airport pickup, though: nobody came to collect me so I had to get my own taxi (which in fact was far cheaper than the hotel pickup anyway). Mumbai is far far nicer than Delhi: the same seems to apply in the case of the cities' hotels. I would definitely stay in Residency Hotel again, but wouldn't use the airport pickup service (unlike in Delhi, you can rely on the taxi drivers in Mumbai).

      Clean and cheap - arrange your own pickup though!


      A very good hotel given it's cheap price - certainly not 4 or 5 star but you certainly get your monies worth. Stayed here for ten nights, staff are friendly and the hotel is clean and tidy.

      Don't ask them to arrane a pick up from the airport - we were left waiting for an hour and had to get our own way there in a cramped cab. Got no apology either on arrival.

      Perfectly acceptable


      A resonably priced (for Mumbai) option half way between Victoria Terminus and Flora Fountain. Convenient in some ways, but not a huge choice of restaurants very close by. Stayed in the annexe - not 5-star luxury, but clean, comfortable and decently equipped, with obliging and friendly staff. Being refurbished while we were there.



      This hotel is an okay budget option and well located but i was not convinced the bedding was clean.

      In particular, make sure you are paying the "local rate". We booked through expedia and it was double that and not good value.

Looking forward to ditching my jacket and the many layers Cindy had to wear, we packed our bags for the final time in Delhi and went downstairs to the reception area. We had arranged for a taxi the night before with the …

      Well the first leg of our trip to India has come to a close after 4 hectic days and 3 hectic nights in Mumbai. As I always am when I leave a big city I'm unsure whether I loved it or hated it! I'm sure though when we look back we will agree that it as an amazing place.

      Mumbai, formerly Bombay, a city of a whopping 18m people, was our next stop (although we already knew the bus stations well!) from our way to Nasik! Our bus, true to the norm, terminated in a spot absolutely miles from the centre - like about 35km. No wonder we couldn't get anyone in Nasik to show us where it stopped on the Mumbai map - it was off …
