Hi Folks,

Suppose I told you that I'm shifting to Mumbai for the next year and that I don't want to rent a flat but instead set up in a cheap but decent hotel/ guesthouse. I would prefer something in South Mumbai ie. Colaba, Churchgate or Gam Devi. My budget per day can be around 500-700r.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

I don't have any specific recommendations, but you'll have no problem finding a decent room for that price. They should give you a pretty good discount if you tell them you're going to be staying long term, so you should be looking for a place more around 900rps, then bargin down.

Thanks Jabbervock, I had trouble finding anything that had a bathroom inside for under 1000r/ night. In fact... I didn't find anything and ended up renting a flat instead.

Surferchick... the Sally Ann only allows a stay of something like a week.... and their rooms are pretty scummy.

anyone else want to take a shot?

Have a look on these hotels- Volga hotel in Colaba or Marina Guest House, New Sheltar, Bentleys Hotel in Churchgate etc. May be they will suit your pocket and taste.

there are quiet a few hotels around the stations in the town area that will come under your budget. I dont remember names but a friend used to regularly stay in a place close to a station when visiting bombay. five or was it seven hundred bucks for a room with a bath i think.

PS: will send him a message maybe he still remembers the name...

Thanks Jag... Appreciate the input.
There has to be something out there that is decent enough and will not break the bank at the same time....

The Carlton, right behind the Taj Mahal Hotel is cheap with t.v. and frig. in some rooms. Stayed there about 7 years ago and bargained down to 500 for just a night or 2 and had a big room with sofa, t.v., frig and 2 big french doors that opened up to a view of the back of the Taj Mahal Hotel. Just a few steps away from the gateway of India. It also had a nice open terrace area that you can sit and watch the street life pass by.

Tthe hotel Carlton is very good for its value for money as it is in central location. When we arrived the rooms were being cleaned thats why I said above its cleaness. Staff was very helpful and friendly specially guy called RAJU. I will go back if I want to stay in that area as now I stay around Bandra.

The carlton hotel now looks the other way, no longer double french door rooms with BR INR 1500 without BR 850 but not very clean now a days. But may be ok for you.

Big thanks for the extra info Sundar

I'm wondering if the management will consider a discount for a long term guest?
