TravelPod Member ReviewsAstoria Hotel Mumbai (Bombay)
What started out as a quick fill in night turned into 5 days stay at this hotel. nothing flash, but comfortable & great service. Breakfasts nothing to rave about but it is food to get you started for the day. we enjoyed our stay at this Hotel & great location to wander around the old parts of Mumbai.

... was my taxi (they're just nondescript vans) so ended up leaving late. As we started driving he said it would take two hours to the airport. I'd counted on it taking an hour and a half.

Finally filled up and got driving. As we ...
