TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Waterstones Hotel Mumbai (Bombay)
I stayed at this hotel as it was very near to Mumbai airport and only stayed 1 night. I would happily have stayed for longer as it is more than just an airport hotel. The gardens and pool area are fabulous. Staff were extremely helpful.

You can only be born a Farsi and if you marry outside, you are no longer Farsi. For this reason, their numbers are dropping.

India is one of the few places I've been where I've felt slightly out of place in shorts and had to go buy some trousers at one point to dress more... local. I have loved the amazing temples: they are beautifully decorated and massively ...
... their heads, for free. From there we moved on to the residential area where the streets are narrow. Like, crazy narrow. Like, they had a fire once and it took 2 days for the firemen to get to it to put it out. The houses are tiny, maybe the size of a small bedroom but they seem to have everything that a house requires; a bed that doubled as a couch, a washing machine, and a refrigerator. They cost about $60 US dollars per month to rent or $20,000 ...
I woke early and went for a short walk in the predawn light. It's been 25 years since the last time I was here. So much has changed, but so much remains the same. The smell is not as pungent as I remember, there also seems to be far less rubbish in the streets. They still though burn small piles of paper, plastic and other rubbish each day. As a result Kathmandu is constantly covered in haze. Breakfast in the hotel and then off to Thamel for a look and to get a couple of ...
