There's a wide variety of hotels near Mumbai airport to choose from but unfortunately they don't come cheap, as Mumbai is a notoriously expensive city. You'll find most luxury international hotel chains in the vicinity of the new international Terminal 2. As the international and domestic terminals are situated in two different areas, attention does need to be paid to the location of the hotel. (Note that only domestic low-cost carries operate from the domestic terminal. All full-service domestic airlines have relocated to the international terminal). This guide to Mumbai airport hotels will point you in the right direction of the best places to stay for all budgets.
