Abode is Mumbai’s Hidden Gem of a Luxury Boutique Hotel

Set inside a lovely old building in the heart of Colaba, the 20-room bolt-hole encapsulates everything that makes this part of town so delightful.

Few places capture the essence of Mumbai quite like Abode.

For all the city’s grand hotels, few places capture the essence of Mumbai quite like Abode (doubles from US$118). Set inside a lovely old building in the heart of Colaba, the 20-room bolt-hole encapsulates everything that makes this part of town so delightful: it’s youthful, creative, and proud of its rich heritage. All of these traits are reflected in the interiors, where hand-painted tile floors complement an impressive collection of custom teak furnishings and quirky, quintessentially Indian bric-à-brac like chai trays and vintage tin boxes. While the “basic” rooms are best avoided due to the lack of private bathrooms, the more spacious and photogenic top-level rooms come with walk-in rain showers, claw-foot bathtubs, and large windows that overlook the clamorous streets below.
