    Need some advice for four early 20s girls looking to spend three nights in Mumbai. Miserable upper limit per person per night of £ 30, and they would like a pool! They have no particular area in mind. On the face of if, this sounds impossible, but I thought I’d ask the HfP forum hive mind before suggesting they think again 🙂

    Three young ladies in cheap accommodation in Mumbai would have me very worried. I’m sure it’s possible but I really don’t think it’s sensible.

    When they’re travelling might have some bearing as bargains might be more available at certain times of the year.

    But yes, I would put security first in a country with a high level of violence towards women.

    I had a (very) quick look for 3 nights in May, and the Grand Hyatt Mumbai would fit the bill. Caveat, it was a very quick look and before recommending somewhere I hadn’t stayed would be reading reviews and checking the safety angle carefully.

    Good reviews – a standout suggestion @NigelHamilton

    I’m now wondering if I can work this as a tick in my brand explorer box 😆

    I seriously think you should push the budget a little more. On our first trip to Mumbai we stayed at the Residency Fort Mumbai which is currently showing as about £60 per night and it was a decent 3*. It still seems to get food reviews. Bear in mind that you can eat well cheaply in Mumbai (for peanuts if you have a solid constitution) and getting about is also very cheap.

    A quick search says you can get decent places in your budget away from the more expensive South Mumbai, but then you are away from some of the tourist places. The closer you get to Colaba, the more your budget will be pushed. Traffic can be horrid so if you do stay more remotely, expect an hour in a taxi to get anywhere. Longer if you are in a tuk tuk, which can’t carry 4 passengers legally anyway even though they will.

    Google has a hotel equivalent to its flights tool with a map and can give you some pointers to then explore further

    Must be tons of hostels in that price range.

    oh indeed there are… however, they essentially want a four/five star with pool experience… I’ve passed on the Hyatt and Residency suggestions — many thanks all
