This is one the fastest growing cities in the world; one of the biggest and the most crowded with number of tourists and businesspeople coming into the city everyday.
Hence, I figured it should be fairly easy to find a reasonable, safe hotel somewhere in the centre of the city.
I asked several people for a recommendation. And everyone recommended – Bandra, Worli, South Mumbai, Colaba. Everyone. And they all said:
“There are plenty of hotels there. You can just go there and get one.”
But I wanted to have some things set before I went. So I wanted to book a hotel. And when I asked those very people how the area in which the hotel was:
“Oh that isn’t a great area. Yeah it is Bandra but… did you try Worli?” and so on.
Come on! Is it so bloody difficult to get a hotel? I’m just going to wing it.
