Info : Leela Mumbai
The Leela is situated on 11 acres of beautiful manicured gardens. You’ll see cascading waterfalls, swaying palms, and magnificent up-lit fountains as you pass though the peaceful grounds. It’s a refuge from the chaos that reigns in the business district beyond the borders of the hotel. The building itself is a bit of an eyesore, a typical concrete jungle high rise, but the grounds more than make up for this. Come to the Leela in Mumbai for impeccable service and superb dining.
The hotel is a five-minute drive from the International Airport, and right in the middle of a bustling business district. Although the location lends itself to all types of traveller. If you’re a leisure traveller accustomed to luxury, it’s also a good choice for exploring Mumbai. The dining is particularly good here, with meals available around the clock, a fine selection of contemporary Indian, Chinese, and international dishes.
The Leela is large and sumptuous with more than 400 rooms and suites to choose from. All are suitably elegant and regal in design, with stunning city, garden or pool views and lavish facilities. The entry-level rooms are a tad on the small size, measuring 25 square metres.
This hotel is a solid choice for the leisure traveller, but anyone looking for a spacious and characterful room might be advised to consider the Taj Mahal Palace instead, which offers more in the way of beauty, history, heritage, and charm.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
The train journey from Calcutta to Darjeeling was a wonderful experience of the real India whilst everyone we met was friendly and courteous.
