Mumbai is a bustling, busy, and colourful city where everything is constantly moving. Made up of more than 603 square kilometres, and with a population of over 18 million people, this is one of India’s largest cities. Getting around isn’t always easy, which is why it’s important to find the perfect hotel in the right location. We’ve put together a quick guide to some of the most popular neighbourhoods and hotels in Mumbai to help you plan your Indian adventure.
Colaba is one of Mumbai’s most popular neighbourhoods to visit. It is vibrant and colourful, yet easy to walk around. There are plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants, and also hotels here. Until recently, this area tended to attract travelling families and older travellers. In recent years, however, it has begun to experience a new wave of gentrification which has lead to more younger and middle-aged travellers choosing to stay here. Hotels in the area tend to be mid-range and good quality, although there are some budget hotels here as well.
With constant bumper-to-bumper traffic and market traders doing everything they can to sell you their wares, Mumbai can definitely be hectic city. Kala Ghoda, in comparison, is a breath of fresh air. An up-and-coming arty area, the pedestrianised neighbourhood of Kala Ghoda is known for its art festivals, galleries, restaurants, and boutiques. Hotels in this area are primarily mid-range: ideal for those that want comfortable and clean accommodation but don’t want to splurge.
Juhu is the beach-side neighbourhood in Mumbai, famous for its long, sandy beach and the Bollywood celebrities that frequent it. Although Juhu has hotels to suit every budget, many of the hotels here are more upmarket. You’ll find plenty of hotels with swimming pools in this area, as well as a number of 4 and 5-star accommodation options.

The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower – Built in 1973, this is one of Mumbai’s most majestic and grand hotels. It sprawls for more than 2 acres and features 10 different on-site restaurants.
The Oberoi – Centrally-located in Mumbai’s business district, The Oberoi offers modern, stylish hotel accommodation in the heart of Mumbai. Hotel amenities include an outdoor pool, a babysitting service, and several on-site restaurants.
Lively city full of Friendly people, plenty of places to see, amazing/huge variety of food options to try any time in the day or night. Multiple travel options just need to choose the right mode of transportation and plan around the peak hours so as not to get stuck in traffic or crazy rush. Hard to get lost as people are rather helpful. Beware of dodgy people, best to plan with some legitimate tour guide or operator or hotel to play it safe.
I stayed in mumbai and I am an konkani So I know about it better than many people I love it a lot Less costly and best for all people for everything Home for lakhs of people searching for jobs from all over world
Great place to understand different culture, Mumbai gives place to all. The commercial hun of India.
One of the busiest cities we have ever been in, but everyone seems to be ok with it. I think it is best to go on a tour to make sure you see a lot and are able to get through traffic.
