The reception staff and door staff are welcoming and treat you with respect. They have excellent knowledge of the area and are quick to assist. The breakfast, in fact all the meals at the restaurant are outstanding in their selection. Catering for many tastes.
Health and beauty area is also good.

"Good hotel for business and leisure"
We booked two superior rooms as travelling with children. Overall, the stay was comfortable. Very helpful staff at reception and concierge. Breakfast was also good with decent mix of indian and continental. Good location for sightseeing in Colaba and nearby places. Gateway of India is around the corner (2 min walk). Hotel is old but very well maintained. Toilet accessories are good.

"Great Value for money"
stayed for a night at the hotel, had a great experience. staff was courteous and accommodated a late check out for us also arranged for some cookies and muffins with a fruit plate for the evening as we were fasting. Ashwini the receptionist there was especially very helpful. Hotel is also located at the centre of the city but in a quiet lane which makes it ideal. For the price we payed for the room it was great value for money
Room Tip: pay a little more so you can get deluxe rooms and get a room on the higher floor. added benefits a king size bed and partial sea view, privacy.

"Great Location and a great Hotel"
I stayed at Fariyas for one night in the beginning of June. I was impressed on all counts with the hotel. I stayed in a standard room, which is small but the way it has been laid out it just does not feel small at all.
The breakfast that is served in the restaurant was also wholesome and tasty. Good hotel situated at a perfect location. Gives the real feel of Mumbai.
Keep up the good work Fariyas !! will certainly stay with you when I come to Mumbai the next time.
Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. As it is not on the main road.

It was situated in a very gud location close to Taj Mahal hotel and on the beach side. The rooms were clean and the attitude of the staff was very good. They had a very gud buffet breakfast menu. The food and drinks are pretty costly though.
Room Tip: Choose rooms above 8th Floor to get proper sea view
"very nice hotel"

I stayed here in March. I had a lovely room and it was serviced daily. The staff did a great job with the cleaning. The reception staff were excellent and were all very helpful. The hotel is in a quiet location but close to shopping and some tourist attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel.

"Great location, Decent Room, OK service"
Fariyas is ideally situated in Mumbai. Its proximity to all the places to visit and eateries to try out in South Mumbai (which is where its all at, anyway) is a definite boon to visitors to Mumbai. It's also within walking-distance proximity of the Gateway of India, Colaba Causeway (great street shopping area) and the Seashore. So, if you prefer to walk about and still have umpteen eating/drinking options, shopping areas and local sight-seeing options, this is a great place.
Second, our room had an excellent view of the Sea!! I thank the hotel for providing the same.
Room Tip: Ask for a sea-facing room. Its really worth it.
Ashee2014 - June, 2014
I stayed with my family on a holiday to Mumbai and enjoyed staying at the hotel, the hotel is situated very close to the Gateway of India and Colaba Market, it has lots of restaurants around, the best part is the helpful and courteous staff, breakfast was fine, wi-fi is good and a larger swimming pool would have been better.

"Highly Recommend, very well located
After spending a first night in SunNSand on juhu beach, we decided to move to hotel fariyas for our last two nights in Mumbai because of location, didn't regreat the last hotel, but honestly we love staying near the Taj Mahal Hotel & The Gateway of India
Rooms were clean & spacious, front desk management very helpful and taking care all there guest very personally
Breakfast was delecious and staff were very helpful serving your kids on the table ! Although you can see many Middle East visitors at the same time, different experience ! for North Indian visitor like me ...
Special thanks to front desk manager & staff KEEP SMILE
We will recommend to all friends and visitors to stay in Fariyas at Colaba
Make sure you know the minimum depth of swimming pool before you dive in the pool (caution: do not use swimming pool if you don't know swim)
Inshallah will definitely stay again.

The hotel is genuinely up to international standards. Everything is top notch. I live in the US and have stayed at many motels and hotels. If someone had to compare Fariyas with a US hotel, it could pass off as a toned down version of any downtown 5-star hotel.
The only gripes, if I may, have to be related to the fitness center and the buffet food. The fitness center is shockingly dingy, perhaps used to be a closet space. Anyways, for serious fitness people, give this a pass. Don't even bother stepping in.
While the food itself is of excellent quality and the service wonderful as usual, the price is unusually steep even for someone dealing with foreign exchange rates. In addition, given the location of Colaba, no wonder folks usually don't eat buffet there unless they are hard pressed to do so.
Overall, I'd give this hotel a definite 9.5 because of the earnestness and sincerity of the folks to make your stay enjoyable. If you are not from India and looking to visit Mumbai, I highly recommend booking this hotel online and be rest assured that at least your stay will be memorable.

Wanted to spend the weekend in south mumbai as we live in the suburbs. Colaba has a lot of history so we chose to stay at Fariyas. Not too expensive, well located. Efficient and friendly staff. Nice rooms, but could do with a little bit of pest controlling!! Great view from our room on the 9th floor. Breakfast spread decent but lacked variety. Warm and friendly staff. We enjoyed walking around colaba causeway and tried out Leopolds, Busaba and Kailash parbat. Also visited CR2 mall at nariman point. Overall a good experience.

"Good 4 star hotel"
The check in was quick and smooth! The staff was very helpful and nice from the reception to the cleaners! The food was really good and tasty! The hotel is in a very good location in the middle of Colaba which is the tourist zone in Mumbai! The rooms are good size and clean! We really liked to stay in this hotel because of the location and the service! Really good European standard restaurants just around the corner! Overall the hotel is good with good food, location and staff!

Good location for walking, nice quiet street to get away from noisy traffic. Breakfast good, room good sized, tv, staff friendly (excursion desk person late in morning so I did a self tour of Mumbai). Transfers worked well.

"Go to Mumbai, go to Fariyas
We spent almost one week in Mumbai and for us it was important to have a nice and safe place to stay at. The Fariyas Hotel is good located and the area is a good one. The hotel is very clean, the restaurants inside offer excellent food and the staff is very friendly and professional. Got to come back one day! :-)
Room Tip: Check in at the 8th floor if you can. Breathtaking view, and a bathtub.

Room Tip: better opt for the suite on the top floor for an enchanting view of the sea.
Aditya P - May, 2014
I stayed here with my family back in 2012 and I must say it was splendid! The rooms were clean, and the service was good. The only problem I would say, is that several of us could be accused of taking snacks from the mini-bar in our rooms, but it worked out eventually.
The restaurant was great, with a variety of cuisines, especially the breakfast had both Western and Indian food to serve. It was also possible to eat outside by the pool. I really liked that we got the newspaper on our door each morning, and that it was possible to send our clothes for wash.
Overall, I had a good experience. Fariyas Hotel is really nice, with a good service and nice food. The location is tourist friendly, and it is walk able distance to shopping districts and Leopold Cafe in Colaba.

"Lovely hotel...excellent staff"
We checked into this hotel at the last minute, after my daughter overheated exploring Mumbai. We had been staying at another hotel, where we were not very happy, and the hotel staff was able to accommodate us almost immediately. They upgraded our room at no extra charge because of the short wait.
I felt very safe here in the hotel. This was important to me, as I was traveling for the first time without my husband, but with my teen aged daughter. The gentleman at the front door would make sure we had a safe taxi ride when our Indian friend was not with us to help arrange it. He also inquired into our destination when we planned to wander up to the water at sunset to take some pictures. He wanted to know for safety purposes so someone knew where we were and how long we planned to be gone. It really made me feel like they cared about our safety.
We dined at the hotel several times. The meals were excellent and the service very friendly. Our room was very clean, with modern accommodations, and free unlimited wifi! We stayed in many different hotels while in India, but this was the only one that offered unlimited free wifi. It was amazing and freeing not having to watch our time as we connected with home. Our view from our room offered us a view of the Arabian Sea, which was lovely.
The location of the hotel was nice, as we could get around to all of our destinations easily. I would definitely stay here again if traveling to Mumbai.

"Perfect, Polite and Professional"
We stayed, as a group of eight ladies, at Fariyas for just one night. We had an early arrival in Mumbai and the hotel was really efficient, despite our very early check in (7.30am) after a long flight from the UK, they had organised our rooms and prepared a triple with extra mattress with great efficiency. The rooms were immaculate, the beds, incredibly comfortable, the pool and restaurant......magnificent!
This was my first stop over in Mumbai in 20 visits to India, I was expecting our stay in Mumbai to be very 'ordinary' but The Fariyas Hotel was wonderful. I will return and book here for longer too.
Most impressive. Thank you to all of the staff at Fariyas.
Heather M - May, 2014
We stayed at Fariyas for just over a week, and we were very impressed - we had been warned that Mumbai hotels generally weren't great, but that was definitely not our experience here (we chose Fariyas after a friend recommended it). Our room was very clean and well maintained. We received consistently good service from housekeeping staff and the front desk. The pool is lovely and well kept. The location is also really good - a two minute safe walk to Colaba Causeway and five minutes from the Gateway. I would definitely recommend staying here for a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience in Mumbai.
Mihir - May, 2014
People, People, People- the Hotel Staff is AMAZING. The Food is Fantastic.
I stayed at the Fariyas Mumbai for 2 days along with my wife and 2 year old daughter. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. I have stayed at various hotels across the world, but would rate the staff in this hotel as world class. The ambience of the hotel is old world and is very nice. Though the rooms are a bit tired, it is very well compensated by the spirit of the hotel. Another good thing is that it is in Colaba (Hub of Mumbai) and still far away from the maddening crowd. The view from the room was amazing. We could see the ships pass by. The Food was Excellent and the team went out of the way to help us with our small small requests. My daughter loved the breakfast spread at the hotel. Thank You for the wonderful vacation.
