Best of the Best Hotels

B&Bs and Inns - India

When you want a charming stay with that home-away-from-home feel, these spots deliver.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


With its central location in Colaba near Mumbai's biggest attractions, Abode Bombay is the perfect jump-off point for first-timers to Mumbai. Find yourself within walking distance to countless restaurants, the Gates of India, and even the Taj Mahal. A coffee kiosk and breakfast buffet bring buzz to the stylish vintage lobby, and the attentive concierge are always prepared with a roster of excellent tours to make the most of your stay.

    We had high expectations based on the reviews, the pictures we saw and hotel's own website. Not only Abode Bombay met our expectations, it exceeded them. The nice surprise was that the room (we took a Simple in the forth floor) resulted much more spacious and comfortable than we had expected based on the description. Being one of the smallest room they have, it's still more than enough space to leave our two suitcases open on the floor and still have place to move comfortably around the room. The bathroom was specially big, besides with a smart solution (a little step) to avoid water running out of the shower area. By the way, there's a nice elevator if you cannot make the stairs to the 4th floor. We cannot think of any aspect in this hotel that won't deserve less than a 10 rate. Everything is exactly as described in their website. The decoration of both rooms and common areas is really nice and cool, all full of small beautiful details. The breakfast room, that acts as reception, cafe and resting room, is very cozy, making it a perfect place to have a rest between your trips or walks in this busy town. There's also a common area in the 4th floor, again very nicely decorated and perfect for relaxing, but also prepared with individual tables that you can use if you need to work. A very nice detail (and I guess pretty uncommon) is that they provide a prepaid (free of charge) telephone that you can take with you when you go out, and use it when you are outside to contact the hotel if you are in need of help or simply to do any call you need (the prepaid amount is enough for normal calls and you can top it up if needed). Finally, all the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We felt really comfortable and safe at Abode at every moment. We also took a couple of the city tours they offer, and we can definitely recommend them. Also the taxi service to/from the airport was a great choice, a modern big car with air-con and really nice driver. We would recommend that if you are looking for a cozy, modern, boutique/design hotel for your visit to Mumbai, read Abode's website, where they truly described what they are, and also what they are not. If what you read is appealing to you, book this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

    We have just had a wonderful 4 nights at Abode Bombay. The staff are fantastic and the whole experience was full of warmth and charm. The location was a real bonus and it was so easy to navigate that part of the city on foot. The local cafes and restaurants cater for all tastes so you never go hungry or thirsty.

    A wonderful and very special hotel with very friendly staff, great breakfast and very good capuccino. Very close to "The Gateway of India" and shopping street with many good brands. For fastfood lovers there is KFC and McDonalds nearby. I felt immediately at home and will come back.
