Mumbai is no stranger to boutique hotels – The Gordon House in Colaba is a charming little place that travels through different countries, floor by floor.
Located near Apollo Bandar, the hotel stands shy besides Abode, a swanky boutique hotel on Battery Street. Residing in a heritage building that has stood tall for hundreds of years, The Gordon House is about 600m away from The Gateway of India and is cab ride away from the National Gallery of Modern Art and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya.
With themes like Scandinavian, Mediterranean, Versailles charm and country comfort, each floor is spectacularly different from each other. The lobby is on the second floor and is part of the Mediterranean floor. The rooms are quintessentially Spanish with stone beds, unfurnished but charming walls and aesthetic lighting.
The third-floor sports a cheery, European countryside theme with blankets adorning the walls and pleasant, bright lighting complementing the vibe. The fourth floor is Scandinavian with its perfectly chic minimalism. The spurts of blue and monochrome artwork will transport you to a noise-free, clutter free environment in busy Mumbai.
The suite struts around with a two-room French grandeur. A chandelier, hardwood floor and a checkered floor bathroom with all-marble sinks will prompt you to relax and enjoy the fanciness. Standard rooms are uni-formally priced at around INR 6,000 – INR 7000.
The hotel also has two restaurants/lounges for you to chill at. The Asian- serving All-Stir Fry is your standard eatery, but allows you to make your own wok. And at INR 885 (plus taxes), you get to fill yourself up to the brim for the woks are unlimited.
