Mumbai as you know is a very big city. The hotel is majorly for Single Males, Business Travellers and If for an experience you want to visit - Also for small families. The reception is clean , well lighted , even a free internet connection with an attached printer is located nicely for you to use. But some drawbacks which would urt you if you are the Corporate Type -
a).Room Service is very very slow.
b).Complimentary B/f is better - If you don't take it.(Too Less).
c).Room cleanliness is Really Bad ...and you have to Push to Limits to get the Housekeepng Staff come and help you.(In a place lie Mumbai where every second counts - This is where the Hotel Jetlags)
d).Staff are good, but very untrained - you - need that heart of An Indian Traveller to accommodate - but, they are ready to help.
e).You feel at the end - for a few extra bucks - you could have been in a better place.
Some Ho Ho Factors About Them -
a). When you are at the Free Internet point - nobody disturbs you.
b).You will ask for a room change, they shall do it, if you reasonably ask at the right time, even help you shift.
c).The lift is of excellent nature, large mirrors everywhere.
d).Reception staff are generally cooperative, leaving one or two.
e).The hotel carries an old world charm kind of a feeling, a graceful receptionist, good variety of food, free water and very hygienic.
f).Ask for ten towels a day - and they shall give you.
I would not recommend this hotel for a upper middle or middle class conservative family, unless you are in a rush to be there, or you don't have any other bookings , with family - the Hotel in Mumbai - looks a bit lonely, specially the outer Spaces such as the Staircases , open Corridors and the adjoining lanes are very horrendous.Don't go out after 10:00 pm is the key.
There was this small shop at the back of the Hotel - which on a Sunday - somehow started to pay HINDI and MARATHI songs on its highest possible sound or you can say noise limit - I felt we are sleeping in a DISCO THEK with has not time limits actually !!! You have to be a strong hearted person.
One more thing that happened with us personally - I don't know if it was right or wrong - but or booking was done by One Miss. Kavita over the phone, and the lady sounded extremely courteos, and soeone who understood Family Travelling needs. But this came out as a big shock to me, On Reaching The hotel , the lady suddenly disappears, and after much asking nobody answers where she is , or who exactly she is. Hotel started charging us -
1). Extra Room Tariff
2). Added Taxes Over Our Room Rate not told to us by this Lady
3). Free B/f was pathetic - I would say - better if was not served..very very less
4). Even on Room Service food - we were being charged Additional Taxes.
This was all against the commitments made to us over the phone by this lady - but She seemed to have disappeared once the BOOKING GOT CONFIRMED. Our budgets went topsy turvy, and the hotel staff was very un-cooperative - when it came to any kind of a negotiation with any FINANCIAL RATES - no matter Food Room or Even Taxes.
My advice is - carry an extra 5000/- if you travelling for three days,or else you will have a lot of mental tension, fighting this in-fight or Maybe the BOGUS - don't know, can't do policy of this hotel.
(I wish someone can write this review in HINDI fr me, for our UP people are the most accomodating, with these kind of Cheat Policies, but they should stand up and fight).
Travelling with a family, don't go to this hotel. It is not safe.
Want to spend money, have drinks in the room, go you'll not forget your trip ...
Totally depends - on the kind of a person you are -
I would rate 65/100 for this hotel ........................
The best part for this journey - was when we were checking out of the hotel ......... I felt I'll be alive
I've taken ample pictures - my bluetooth needs some working - I'll post soon...
