“Good hotel, well located, good management and staff, but it needs better maintenance”
Reviewed 5 August 2010

I have already been at Residency Hotel in 2005. This time I found essencially the same good value accomodation. Well located, just in the Fort area, midway between the main station and Colaba Causeway, is an ideal point to start discovering Mumbai. The rate of the rooms is quite cheap for Mumbai. There is internet free in the modern hall and wi-fi free connection in the rooms. This time I found a basical but good buffet breakfast at Rs 80, with fruit (oh, we needed fruit cut and prepared in a safe way after 20 days without...). The rooms, small but nice, are the same as five years ago. This is the point: the same room after five years in an old Indian building means spots of humudity on the walls, forniture and curtains a little scruffy, some air-con that does not work well and needs maintenance: a pity for this good hotel. But honestly I would suggest this choise and go there again in the next journey to Mumbai.

Stayed here for two nights while watching IPL Cricket. Group of 6 gents, and were really impressed with the service, cleanliness and location. A 15 minute walk to the Gateway to India, slightly less to the bars and restaurants of nearby Colaba, Room was clean, two twin beds and en-suite, cable TV. Intenet access in lobby.Breakfast was taken in the small restaurant facing the street, mainly a choice of eggs/toast tea and coffee, but just what we needed. Hotel has no bar, but night porter would happily fetch a crate of cool beers to have in the room, and if you're lucky, like me, have a balcony over the main road and the Fort district.
Victoria Station a 5 minute walk away. Great people and clean comfortable hotel in the right place for the right price

This place was great considering the cost of comparable hotels in Mumbai.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Those at the front desk were great with taxis - they gave me a quote for how much the taxi should cost, then literally flagged one down for me and negotiated a rate on my behalf after I tried to to do so on my own and couldn't escape the inflated foreigners rate. Booking a cab with them to the airport was very easy too. The restaurant's food is good and the staff there was very friendly as well.

The best part about this place is the location. It's a 5 minute walk from Victoria Terminus and an easy cab ride from the popular sites. I felt very safe here.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again should I find myself in Mumbai.

A very good place to stay in Bombay. The staff is absolutely fantastic, very helpful and very very nice. I stayed there for two nights and the location is just perfect to walk around. It is a bit pricey but well it seems Mumbai hotels are all pricey. Rooms are tiny but clean and cosy, and they great BEDS and after a month in India...it was luxurious for me.
