Don’t worry, I’ve got you. That’s why I’ve put together this list of the 10 best hotels, hostels and resorts you can choose from.
The good thing is that there’s something ideal for everyone.
So, let’s dive in and help you find where to stay in Mumbai during your upcoming couples visit.
Why use Booking.com or Agoda for accommodation in Mumbai?
Booking.com has made our travels much easier over the years. Their website is so easy and straightforward to use. They give you sufficient details concerning the accommodation listed, which is so essential when it comes to deciding where to stay.
But Booking.com is not only for making couples hotel bookings in Mumbai. We’ve used this site throughout our travels around the world and we’ve never been disappointed. One of the best things is their loyalty reward program. You can be a Genius member just by opening an account with Booking.com and completing at least two bookings within two years.
Free welcome drinks and great discounts are some of the benefits you can get on selected bookings once you’re a Genius member.
But before you go ahead and book your chosen property, I always recommend checking out how it compares on Agoda. A lot of the time they come in slightly cheaper, especially when you account for AgodaCash.
This is Agoda’s unique cashback service that offers cash back on certain properties. This can then be collected and used for discounts on future properties.
To help make sure you get the best price, I’ve included links to both Agoda and Booking.com for all properties below.
