The Gordon House Hotel is centrally located to many attraction areas. India Gate, Taj Hotel and the Leopold Cafe. Restaurants, Cafes and shopping can be found within walking distance. The only problem is you will have a sleepless night if your room is in the second floor on top of the night club on a week end. Otherwise the Hotel... More

In the heart of the action in Colaba. Walking or tuk tuk distance to India Gate, Kala Ghoda, Causeway, shopping, cafes and restaurants. Clean and comfortable with a miniscule bathroom. Lots of little goodies that add value to the experience. There's a hip and happening night club on the first floor that makes sleeping impossible over the weekend. Friendly and... More

We had three nights at this wonderful establishment. It is positioned just behind the Taj and within walking distance of major attractions eg red fort, Leopolds and others. Staff were excellent, rooms well presented and spotless! A more than satisfactory breakfast sets you up for the day!!

Within walking distance of the 'Gateway of India' and ideal for a variety of shops. The room we had was small, so two nights was enough, and could have done with a coat of paint. Having said that the staff were very helpful and we had a nice meal in the restaurant one of the evenings, going out to the... More

First room I stayed in had a loud, steady humming due to the ventilation system which I was told could not be turned off. I switched rooms and was up all night due to the sound of honking horns, loud music and drunken crowds at the downstairs Havana Club. Then there was constant, toxic smell of paint thinner which gave... More

Stayed at this hotel a year ago and wrote a rave review in April 2015.. Nothing much has changed, still great staff, the perfect location in Colaba and the best sleeps during our month long tour of India.

To be fair from the very first line: Gordon House Hotel is a good hotel, and my poor score is due only to the room. It is clean, staff is helpful, location is perfect, it is nicely decorated and breakfast is good. It is actually pricey, but more or less all accomodations in Mumbai are not so cheap. But... the...

Brilliant location but plenty of competition nearby. Great breakfast and overall service. Clean compact rooms with some character came with a hot shower and even a DVD player. However, at weekends the floor is shaking until the early hours because of the popular noisy hotel bar. We were moved to a higher floor when found it impossible to sleep, hardly... More
