Reviewed 31 March 2014

A small hotel right on the Juhu beach - that's its USP
The rooms are small but rather nice and warm
The bathrooms are rather small
Food here is average, but nothing beats the experience of having breakfast right by the beach

Stayed in room number 114 for 2 nights from 19th march to 21st march. Hotel location is the best as it is on juhu chowpatty but toilets are very small. Also hotel should improve in breakfast department.

I stayed in this hotel way back in July,2013 for an one night stay. Rooms were quite spacious with ample lighting. It was a sea view room. However, being monsoon season, the rooms were quite damp.The wi-fi access in the room and lobby was decent. The washrooms were fine with all basic toiletries available. The restaurant has an amazing view of the sea. The food provided in the restaurant was above average. Check-in and check-out process was swift,Also,the staff attention was applaudable. It is located right on the Juhu beach. Overall, a good experience and would recommended it for sure.

The location of the hotel is fantastic! It’s right on the beach! Hotel has an open restaurant where they serve breakfast and that opens the door to beach! If you are a couple then this is one of the nicest places to stay. Most of the room windows give you a view to beach. The breakfast has both south Indian and north Indian and is quite good. The staff was very courteous and helpful and they also provide free airport transfer. The only con is the room size is small and sometimes you feel it is not worth the money we pay but then it is Mumbai and property is located right on Juhu beach. Overall an excellent experience and I would recommend others to stay at this place.

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
