A hotel suitable Hotel


I am arriving to Mumbai Chatrapati airport at 1am on Monday the 3rd Feb.

I have the following day FREE to explore Mumbai (as much as is possible within only 1 full day and evening) And then the following morning (4th) i have a early train to catch (Mandovi Express) from Mumbai CST Station.

My question is this:

Where would be the best hotel for me to stay at (in terms of location) given that i am landing at Chatrapati at 1am (i'll want to get in to bed soon after landing!) and that i will need to be staying relatively close to CST Train Station for my in order to catch my 6.55am train on the morning of the 4th! I also want o spend the whole day of the 3rd seeing as much of Mumbai as possible!

Is there a hotel that is equidistant? Or should i just stay sloes to the CST or the Airport?

Many thanks!

You can stay at P.A. Residency near CST station next to GPO on Shahid Bhagat Singh Road. The hotel is clean and the management is friendly.

Hello Chris,

Stay near CST railway station Fort, Churchgate,Colaba as you will be exploring the entire day for sight seeing and board a train next day early morning.The major sight seeing is in the area/nearby area.So it will be easy commuting if you plan to stay in the area around for sight seeing & catch a train next morning.

Mumbai city is laid out north-south, with the airport in the north, and the sightseeing in the south.

The area near the airport is commerical and industrial in nature. It is difficult to access shops and restaurants without a private car. Also you need 1.5hrs to come from the hotels near the international airport to the Gateway of India or Victoria Terminus during the day.

So it makes no sense to stay in the north. Come to a place in south Mumbai immediately after your flight arrives in India. At that hour there won't be traffic and you will make it in under an hour.

If you post your hotel budget it is easy to suggest the right ones.
