“Nice beach front location.”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Check-in and staff:
We arrived at the Citizen late one evening for a one night stay. On arrival, the staff were friendly and helpful. Check-in was painless and we were promptly shown to our rooms that were interconnecting (208-209).

The room:
Room 209 was clean and comfortable but not very spacious. It had a sea view and you could hear the waves breaking onto the beach. It also had a flat screen tv with lots of different channels to choose from. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was compact but functional. The hot water arrangement was a little unusual as you had to switch it on to heat up 20 minutes prior to use.

The restaurant:
We then headed down to the restaurant that looks out over Juhu beach. The menu had plenty of choice we had a very enjoyable meal before having drinks on the terrace that boarders the sandy beach which was a great place to relax.

Breakfast can be taken out on the beachside terrace. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice of Indian and European.

Pros:
Location for the beach.
Great food.
Clean and comfortable.
Nice food.
Helpful staff.

Cons:
Noise from staff out in the corridor early morning.
Very close to airport so aircraft noise taking off through the night could be heard.

We picked the Citizen Hotel because we chose to spend a last night in Mumbai before flying back to the US. We were flying in from Goa. The Citizen provided us a shuttle pick up at the domestic airport and a drop off the next day at the international airport.
We discovered that Juhu Beach is a happening scene and provides a lovely sunset experience either on the beach itself or from the outside deck restaurant at the hotel.
The management gave us the top floor corner room, so we had a view up and down the beach.
The room was comfortable. I call it Indian business style. It wasn't a huge room. The bed covers seem a bit dated. It had a tea kettle, plenty of hot water for the shower. Everything was clean.
Breakfast was included and it was quite good. The staff helped us find things to do in the area (consider the ISKON temple for buffet lunch). The staff was also accommodating of our desire for a late checkout, and when I had a complaint about the shuttle driver, they were very quick to respond to my complaint and to make things right.
I found this to be an excellent, airport-friendly hotel for anyone coming in or leaving Mumbai, who doesn't need to be down at the Gateway of India.

Room Tip: the corner rooms on the beach have great views

This place is value for money. Located at one of the happening spots in Mumbai that's next to Juhu Beach. It has beach facing rooms. It has restaurant just on the beach facing with bar.There are many other hotels in this area but they are five star rated and so much more expensive than Citizen

Rooms are small . But Location is great - next to Juhu Beach . Good food and even better if you want to enjoy drinks in the evening . Lobby is congested . Furniture is old and rooms smell of cigarette . Quite difficult for a non smoker like me .

Citizen was chosen by friend who lives in Mumbai to host her guests for her marriage, and I must say that what I liked the most about this hotel was the staff, very friendly.
Our room was very small! All other hotels we stayed in India had a good space, but this one just fitted the bed and our bags. The décor is also outdated.
Something that must be nice is that the hotel is on the beach shore! You can have your breakfast outside and a few steps away, you’re already on the beach… In our case, I think we had bad luck because the day was very hot and there lots of flies outside… We had to eat inside.
The location itself is very good, in Juhu Beach, but I’m not sure if I’d stay there again.

It is a very good hotel on Juhu Beach. Try out room options with meal included. Restaurant is facing Juhu Beach and makes good option for business traveler and leisure also.Room size (bathroom is small) but they are neat and clean.

Room Tip: Room on facing Sea Beach are good
