This is a moderately priced, small but cozy accommodation in the suburban Mumbai area.

Budget Hotels in Mumbai
13. Garden Hotel
Located at the quiet lane of Colaba Causeway, this is close to the most popular south Mumbai tourist spots. The rooms are spacious and have the old world Bombay charm which is definitely its specialty.
There is a small park nearby and you will hear sounds of piano lessons coming through the walls from the nearby residence. Quaint strolls and coffee breaks on the deserted terrace are things you can enjoy at this place. The Wi-Fi throughout the property is free, the hotel has air conditioning in all the rooms with in-room lockers.
14. Hotel Manama
Located in the busy commercial area this is ideal for business travelers in Mumbai. It is very close to the CST terminus and the drab facade makes it apparent that lodging is conveniently economical at this place. This is a straight-forward no frills place with clean rooms that come with attached baths and TVs. We recommend skipping the restaurant on the ground floor to try the café Britannia nearby or the several street stalls that serve mouth watering snacks along the area.
15. West End Hotel
The old establishment still holds up its charm as having been carefully preserved its English heritage and the old school Bombay vibes. This is the only south Bombay hotel that made our list and is located at the hip entertainment district just like its London counterpart. The hotel is history in itself as was built by English owners in 1948.
The rooms are spacious and tasteful, without any extra frills, the price of accommodation are a bargain when it comes to its location and the amenities on offer. Great for families travelling on a budget!
