Reviewed 27 January 2013

The Welcome Hotel is 2 minutes from the main Mumbai rail station (CST Victoria Terminus), and a 5 minute cab to Colaba. It's a great find, fitting in the gap between the expensive mammoths of the Taj / Intercontinental etc and the budget (awful) places.

Try it - we did, and loved it.

The Welcome Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Mumbai if you need a clean, central and cheap location. The hotel is located close from CST station and Colaba is in walking distance. The rooms are very basic but very clean. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are plenty of locations within walking distance. The hotel offers a pick-up service from the airport, which is a nice service when you arrive in the middle of the night.

One word to describe this place...bizarre. Staff seemed to go out of their way to be unfriendly, particularly the receptionists. Any questions were met with a steely glare. I had a group of young staff camped outside my room play fighting and making comments to themselves every time i walked past. Aside from the people, the rooms were fine and clean. Thankfully i didn't have any stomach upsets, because i had to walk two minutes to reach the toilet/bathroom. I wouldnt recommend this place until the staff were sent on a long customer service course.

Except of course you have to climb the first two stairs to reach the reception at the start, there is absolutely nothing to complain about this hotel. Very helpful. efficient and responsive staff. Clean ( As if others haven't told enough) and again very value for money. Given that Marine Drive, The Gateway of India, CST, Dalal St, Wankhede stadium everything is within 5-10 min reach, this is very much recommended.

Efficient and helpful management and staff, super clean comfortable safe rooms with A/C and TV, elevator, and some rooms having external bathrooms but again very clean and functional...wi-fi available and working just fine...right in the heart of a wonderful Bombay locale! This hotel i do recommend

Room Tip: A room at the back of this nicely refurbished 100 year old property will prove quieter and closer to...

This hotel is at Balard Estate and just at a stone's throw from CST railway station.It is a bit expensive but but keeping in view it's location and also the cost of decent acomodation in Mumbai,it is a good choice.There appears to be no lift a and you have to ascend through stairs.Suite rooms beside reception are good and clean.There is facility of morning breakfast and tea at the hotel.There is no restaurant at the hotel but there are various options nearby like "Shivala","Punjab" and many more at a walking distance.Alternatively food can also be ordered from outside.
