“Good enough for a short visit”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

I was here only for a night on a business visit, so will just write about my brief experience.
The location of the hotel is absolutely fabulous, right next to the Gateway of India. There are plenty of good places around to visit as well.
The staff is courteous and didn't cause me any worries. Infact, they were kind enough to drop the newspaper outside my room in the morning.
The pricing of Rs. 3200 per night for a single AC room is a quite high, but taking into account the expensive real estate around, I'd say it was normal.
The room was clean, AC was very powerful, TV was very small and bathrooms were hygienic enough for a comfortable night's stay.

This hotel is very basic but in a great location, just down the road from India Gate. It isn't a nice hotel, but if you just need a place to sleep then it is ok. I wouldn't want to go back here, but the location was ideal and it was one of the cheapest options. It doesn't seem like good value for money, however hotels are so much more expensive in Mumbai than anywhere else in India.

We recently returned for a great trip and very nice stay at the Strand Hotel located on the Sea Front. We found the staff and good to deal with. The Wi Fi wasn't setup yet.Hope it gets set up.
The Strand is in the process of renovations. We choose the older room for it's space and charm. Free breakfast which we liked. Priced okay considering the location of the Hotel in a prime area.All in all of all the Colaba Hotels we have stayed in we rate this one the best according to our criteria.

Room Tip: Older rooms have the balcony and the space. The newer rooms don't so much. Depends on the travel...

It's one of those places in India where people will charge you according to how much money they think you have. Really rude and unrelieable staff. The old couple (they looked like a couple) on the front desk is just sooo rude! The only people that seemed somewhat nice were desperately trying to get a tip, so it ends up being pretty annoying. Room and bathroom were basic. Location is fantastic but I wouldn't stay there again. The restaurant is a disaster, by the way...

Arrived only to be told the price of the room had gone up.opted for a single at RS3525-small,dirty unclean room.i agree with other comments on the reception staff,it was either like it or lump it.the door staff continually trying to open doors or take luggage to your room.I actually had to wrestle my bag away from them.On the whole a terrible experience.God,you can get a Premier Inn in the Uk for £19

Very mediocre. We stayed 2 nights and moved 3 times. Staff sorted out our rail tickets - for an extra 1000 rupees per ticket. Wifi intermittent and only in reception area. Staff talk loudly at night and there's an annoying bell each time one of them goes in and out of the kitchen.you could probably get room cheaper by booking on Internet. We paid 4300 a night. Would have been ok at half this rate given it's Mumbai and its location.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms over kitchen and at front of hotel. Although at back you get staff talking loud...
