One trip to Mumbai and you’ll soon agree that they don’t call it the land of opportunities, or Maximum City for nothing. With hundreds of local and overseas travelers pouring in each day, the city offers some of the best in dining, entertainment, and staying options – whether it is business or leisure that brings you here.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to staying options in hotels. So we’ve picked 5 hotels that we thought would appeal to your taste and have broadly segregated them according to the 3 features that may matter most to you:
1. Proximity to the business hub
Bandra Kurla Complex
When we say business, we are referring to top-end hotels that are located at arm’s length away from the main business district at the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), so that you spend less time and energy commuting back and forth. It takes just 15 minutes by road to reach Vile Parle, and just 20 minutes to Andheri. BKC has two great hotels to choose from:
The Trident spells modern luxury, with its lavishly designed rooms overlooking the cluster of commercial buildings within BKC. So if you have a meeting there, this is the most convenient option for staying over, where you can feel rested after a good night’s sleep, and be sure of reaching the meeting on time. The hotel boasts of a wine library, a lounge bar, and a patisserie. Get best deals at Trident now.

2. Eco-friendly hotels
The concept of an Eco Hotel appeals to those who are not just environmentally conscious but also to those who put these thoughts into practice. A stay at such hotel requires not just the hotel to use fixtures and equipment, and follow processes that are eco-friendly, but also the guests doing their bit in helping the environment. This involves the hotel installing energy-efficient lighting, recycling water and paper, and using organic towels, bed sheets, and soap. Guests may need to reuse their some of their towels, or refrain from smoking. It’s an experience worth living at least once. We’ve picked two such hotels for you to consider:
I. The Orchid
Vile Parle East
The Orchid claims to be Asia first 5 star ecotel hotel, having won more than 90 awards in hospitality and sustainable environmental development in India and across the world. Sink into the depths of comfort and feel one with nature here.

3. Fine dining
The ITC Maratha is a picture of refinement, and the epitome of luxury. Its Indian restaurant, Peshavari is world-famous for its Dal Bukhara. So if you are visiting Mumbai and have a taste for North-Indian food, this is the place to stay. Apparently, the aromatic, smoky dal is slow cooked over a charcoal flame for 24 hours before serving its guests. And that’s not its only secret. The recipe includes several secret spices that make this dish inimitable and immeasurably complex. For the discerning, who don’t settle for anything less, a trip to Mumbai without tasting the divine Dal Bukhara would be incomplete.
