“Good location great view”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

This hotel needs some tlc. Rooms are worn and need updating as well as beds. It was very clean and the view of harbor is amazing. I found the staff friendly and helpful. I liked the location, rooftop restaurant, and view. I stayed here solo and would stay here again in Mumbai

Very average rooms but great helpful staff. The rooftop restaurant is the perfect place to eat and drink and watch the sun go down.

The hotel doesn't provide bottled water or international electric adaptors - both can be bought from stalls 50 metres away.

350 rupee ride to and from the airport - make sure you get a pre-paid taxi voucher before you leave the departure hall. The ride through the middle of insane downtown Bombay is an eye-opening blast.

I have two feelings about this hotel. The location is great! The sea is just two steps away. You can see the gateway of India from the entrance and from the rooftop restaurant. The staff of the restaurant is great. BUT the rooms are not so great, very old-fasioned. The staff of the hotel was also not very friendly. But I still think this is a good choice, the location is so great and so is the rooftop and the view.

This is one out of two hotels located in the same building, which is kind of strange and also confusing when you arrive.

The rooms are clean enough, I suspect you can find much worse in Mumbai. Kind of uncomfortable beds with not so pretty bedspreads, but if you don't have very high standards and are looking for a cheap place at a really good location, this is a good choice.

The biggest flaw at this hotel is the staff. Even though they were polite and helpful, these poor young boys who clean the rooms seem to have no staff room at all. The result of this is that when they are out of things to do they simply sit around in the hallways and stairs (which are extremely narrow) and stare at you. As a young woman in a crazy city you've never been to before; this is seriously creepy.

Also; tiny reception which doesn't really look like a reception.

We spent 4 nights here in March 2011.

We arrived late at night, after a hair raising drive from the airport and the Taxi Driver attempting to rip us off we were relieved to actually be here. The hotel starts on the 3rd floor and the reception is something akin to a small takeaway counter. Now I must have reviewed over 100 hotels from 15 countries on Trip Advisor - and the abrupt, surly and downright hostile reception we recieved here far surpasses the worst experience I have ever experienced anywhere. Downright insulting - Threw our passports down - wouldnt return them to us when we asked for them back - it was obvious the guy was pissed off at actually having to do something and was really unpleasant with us.

The room was apleasant surprise - clean and in a good state of repair with good ac and a tv that worked well with all the channels you would need. But we got less than an hours sleep due to the paper thin walls and constant scraping of chairs and droping of objects on the tiled floors which continually woke us up. About 5am we were ready to just go !

Morning revealed the Hotels main asset - its view from the restauraunt on the roof - gorgeous view across the bay. The breakfast was VERY basic - and took a long time to arrive - but the waiting staff were very very polite and keen to please.

The staff who clean the rooms do a fantastic job - spotless every day when we got back from our travells. Bedding and towells are very old and tired - but for the price in India thats to be expected.

Overall we got what we wanted - a cheap hotel in a handy safe location in Mumbai. The night receptionists attitude and the level of noise at night however really could not lead me to reccomend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night on a stopover in Mumbai. The location is excellent, just down the road from the Gateway to India and Taj Hotel, and around the corner from Colaba Causeway so perfect for sightseeing.
We upgraded to a harbour view room which was fairly basic but perfectly clean and had everything we wanted from a budget hotel. The view over the harbour was lovely and even better from the rooftop restaurant where we had a delicious Indian breakfast.
