Fodor's Expert Review Fariyas
25 Devshankar V, Vyas Marg, off Arthur Bunder Rd., Mumbai, Maharashtra, 400005, India
Just a few minutes on foot from the Gateway of India, the Fariyas is a solid mid-range hotel, well located in Colaba. It has a small marble lobby with not-so-expensive-looking glass chandeliers and brass ornaments. The rooms, with contemporary furnishings and wood floors, are inviting, though a bit pricey given the lack of luxury. Ask for a room with a sea-facing view. Only two suites have tubs; the rest of the rooms have showers. The Tavern bar/pub, in the basement, plays lots of classic rock and oldies, though it's often rather empty—which can be a nice change from the overcrowded bars of Mumbai.
