“Cheap & Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2010

The best part is, the hotel is near Band stand. I booked the hotel to attend a conference in Taj palace bandra and this hotel gave me a cheap way to easily reach there. It is totally a no frills hotel with only basic amenities. It is one of alike traditional hotels which will give you shampoo pouches, small toiletries. If you are looking for high end hotel do not get there. The best part was that breakfast was included so you don’t need to shell extra money. You can order one dish from menu with one drink. the choice is totally yours. The beds are comfortable especially pillows, very clean and very soft. it is in middle of market so commuting is not a problem so does shopping. The restaurant is small but delicacies are good. Hospitality of the staff is worth appreciation. They are quite sophisticated. The extended check out facility is available if rooms are available but if not they will be more than happy to accommodate your luggage in store room for later collection. You can get the inclusive ride to/and from airport and railway station. If you are looking for cheap stay and easily reachable to any part of Mumbai, this is the place to be in

The area outside and the lobby look rather basic, not to mention that the building looks rather ugly. But once you get to your room: it's large and cheerful, the beds are comfortable and clean and the AC works well. Good for a couple of nights specially if (like me) you're visiting the IIT at Powai. Breakfast with freshly made omelettes was also rather good and the staff took an interest, though the room was musty.

Metro Residency at Powai mumbai is a good place to stay if and only if you can plan to take the food outside. The food here is costly and not very satisfying. Else the cleanliness and the hygiene is good

This is one of the worst experiences in my life. I stayed there one night and checked out the next night. The rooms are dirty. The restaurant is shabby and unclean.

The hotel is perfectly located at Powai close to the lake & the Hiranandini Gardens- one of the beautiful posh area of Mumbai. The rooms are clean & the service is excellent. You feel so homely here though you are tired of the hard days work... The hotel is also perfectly close to the famous MIDC & SEEPZ, Andheri (E).

I would visit the hotel again!!!!
