Said by Bombay-born Rudyard Kipling 'If you can keep your wits about you while others are losing theirs, the world is yours.' This loose paraphrase of 'If'  is emblazoned in neon script at the otherwise discreet entrance to Abode. It's the city's first really smart boutique hotel, tucked behind the Gateway of India in the historic Colaba district. The sign might just as easily read: 'Stay here and Mumbai will be yours.' Hotel options in India's financial capital have until now been fairly charmless, and all at near London prices. Abode is the antidote. With just 20 rooms and set in historic Lansdowne House, it combines personal service, low-key luxury and the intimacy of a guesthouse. The loft-style café is a haven from the cacophony of the streets, but there's a sense of place everywhere: the floor tiles are Parsi, a nod to the importance of that community in Mumbai; the raffia blinds recall coconut groves and fishing villages. British co-founder Lizzie Chapman is an exponent of ethical tourism, so there are Parle G biscuits to hand out to street children, the shawls on sale are from a women's collective, and Abode only uses female taxi drivers, many of them single mothers.
