Surprised at some of the negative reviews and relatively low ranking. This is a small hotel with very smart Deco revival interiors and a very attractive atrium, the roof of which is the glass bottom of the roof-top swimming pool. The junior suites are on the side of the hotel but have a wide view across the bay from a large picture window. The room was large, with a sitting area with a sofa and coffee table and a separate desk. The sitting room does not adjoin the bedroom and is smartly designed, but windowless-you would n't want to sit in it-but it did well for our luggage! I did not investigate, but the sofa might be an extra bed, which would do for a child. Very smart marble bathroom. Absolutely excellent breakfast buffet with a wide variety of Indian and European stuff. All staff extremely pleasant and helpful.
The bar is a dark brown 'English Pub' - they'd have done better to keep to the Deco decor.
Very well situated - most sights are within walking distance if you are reasonably able - if not taxis should not cost more than 50 rupees (about 65p)
Only downside-quite a high charge for internet access and in spite of another comment, there seemed to be only a plug-in connection. There was wi-fi in range from a provider who wanted to send some-one round to sign me up, not what you want when you are only there for a few days. This hotel may be mid-range price wise by European standards, but it is extremely expensive by Indian standards, and the least one expects these days is free wi-fi in all rooms.
