Well, I had stayed in this hotel many times when I had to look for budget hotels and decided to go back again to enjoy some things I liked here.
This on the 5th floor of a not so nice building. Once you reach the reception through a rickety lift. You will feel the typical Mumbai "busy-ness". You are checked in quickly, someone helps you with your baggage to the room. Generally all rooms are plain and simply put - functional! But thats the beauty. You get a bed, table chair, a TV, etc, "adjusted" in the a typical Mumbai style.
The washroom is cleanish - for the price you pay. The towels are crisp though they may have been laudered a few hundred times and may not look very white. But remember you are in a budget hotel.
The best part is the food. It is hot, spicy, and delicious ( this opinion is personal - depends on how you like it). the service is effiecient and fast and ever helpful. They will get you anything from toothpaste to scotch whisky at your doorstep!
There is one more good point. After a good meal - just walk in the terrace - you can get good cool breeze - listen to the fast life (trains, people hurrying by), have a good view of the mumbai skyline. Its refreshing.
Again all these good points wiegh better because of the price. For the price you pay and the location - you cant ask for more.
I am tempted to go back again - even when I have option or can afford "better" hotels.
