Regency Inn is located in the heritage district of Colaba, at the southern tip of Mumbai.
Dating from the days of the British Raj, Colaba besides being a shopper's paradise is known for its colonial charm, its famous Kala Ghoda art enclave, its Gothic and Indo-Saracenic architecture and for two world famous landmarks: the Gateway of India and the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower.
Situated just behind the Taj Mahal and a stone's throw away from the Gateway of India, Regency Inn is housed in a 19th century edifice called Lansdowne House. This 21-room boutique heritage hotel used to be the town house of the famous Sassoon family who were instrumental in building south Mumbai.
