From the street it looks terrible, but it is a decoy the true hotel is inside the block. Reception and coridors are old but the rooms are clean and large and if you have good ear plugs you will be able to sleep(street trafic). A good compromize for a low price hotel in Mumbai.

Hotel was clean and had all the amenities. Buffet breakfast was great. Hotel manager and staff were very helpful and kind. Great service. Close to bombay central station. Will definitely visit again if I go back to Mumbai.

Stayed here for 5 nights while on an official tour. Connectivity is just great, but the entire area is a sort of Wasseypur, bang in the middle of Mumbai. There are all sorts of eateries for non-vegetarian food in the vicinity, a famous red light area, Mumbai Central station at walking distance, a BEST bus depot right opposite, a McDonald's and a KFC outlet adjoining the hotel, and a huge shopping mall which has metamorphosed into an exclusive center for wholesale purchase of cell phone parts. Impressive, huh?

Other than its rather 'exotic' location, the hotel has friendly staff, a wholesome complimentary breakfast, clean airy rooms and tasty but expensive food on its menu. On the minus side, it lacks internet connectivity, travel assistance is nil, and the location may appear intimidating to some. It should also have a clear lighted signboard on the road, because it is almost impossible to locate at night, as it is situated inside an estate, which also houses a residential apartment complex, amongst other things. The hotel should also clearly indicate on its website that it is situated in an area called 'Nagpada', instead of Mumbai Central, the latter being a large, scattered, undefined area.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel faces a block of flats. The other side faces a messy red light area. The choic...

This is a well maintained hotel at very reasonable prices. It is very near to local-rail station. Easy to commute to any part of the city.
Rooms are clean, room supplies are good, if not the best.
Staff service is really amazing. They will not deny anything which falls under their limits.
You call a guest for meeting, and he will be treated like their own guest.
Hotel is in crowded local-area, so you should be a crowd-loving people. Many guests in this hotel are Arabs with typical Arabic attire.
