There is always something sad about the end of a wonderful holiday in India. To ease the pain of our last night in the fabulous country we booked in again to the Peninsula Grand in Mumbai. Our last stay here was 2 or 3 years ago and we enjoyed it.
The location has one advantage to my way of thinking. It's really near the airport. This part of Mumbai I am told is on the way up and the opening of the metro station virtually opposite the hotel will make a difference but currently the snazzy areas of Mumbai, the Bollywood Theme Park and the Gate of India are very far from here by taxi and Andheri is basically an industrial business area. I have never felt any urge to walk out of this hotel and take a stroll in any direction.
However the courtesy car to and from the airport delivers you right inside the hotel compound and by the reception.
Once inside you are in a fine upscale hotel with charming and helpful staff. Our room booked from London on the web seemed reasonably priced for bed and breakfast and transportation in a major city.
The room was extremely comfortable and once the tv cable box was replaced (which it was 5 minutes after I complained) perfectly fine.
The hotel has a cosy bar with all sorts of Western and local alcoholic drinks which cost almost London prices. We had dinner which was nicely served and tasty.
We had an early flight home so did not have a full breakfast but we saw the buffet laid out and it was plentiful and catered I would say for most national's tastes.
I would recommend this corporate hotel if you are, like we were, flying in and out and staying for only a short time.
