“Lovely view from the terrace, but that's all”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The big attraction of this place to us was it's rooftop terrace, but we only used it once as the prices were absolutely ridiculous. We were charged Rs 450 for a bottle of beer, which costs Rs 65 at any liquor store. I'm prepared to pay a bit more for the view, but not 7 times the retail price!
The rooms were small and the bathrooms large. The TV didn't work at all and was not fixed despite several requests. We stayed for 4 nights, so there was plenty of time to get it right. Breakfast was very, very ordinary, but I can say that it's not the worst I've had in India. I know that Mumbai prices are higher than elsewhere in India, but the cost of the accommodation did not seem to justify the hotel, even though the location was great. It was my first time in Mumbai though, so maybe my expectations were not realistic.

Aircon didn't work, hot water came out brown, cramped room, not very clean. All in all not a very good place but at least the location was good. We had booked for 2 nights but left after 1 and had to pay for 1.5 nights. All in all the worst value we had in India.

The location is fantastic, supper eaten outside was simple and good breakfast was simply disgusting and the coffee inedible! It is a great pity that the so called sea room view which we paid extra for had a very tiny window that you had to stand beside to see anything from due to the positioning of the bathroom. Beds were clean and comfortable so for an overnight stay it was fine.

The sea palace hotel was in a great location. The room was newly refurbished and was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. We extended our stay on a daily basis. The breakfast was adequate and food was replenished as it ran low. The roof top restaurant had good views and played good music. The food was quite nice and reasonably priced. We took a taxi to various places with the help of the doorman in price negotiation. We also walked to restaurants and places of interest safely.

Room Tip: Refurbished rooms have better beds

Very average hotel even for the money. Biggest issue was cleanliness and the quality of the beds. The rooms were dirty and the mattresses were foam as opposed to springs. The whole hotel was extremely tired. The breakfast (according to my dad) was pretty poor. The redeeming features were the location and the roof top bar which served great tandoori and an amazing view. Would go with expectations in check. Oh and the staff were perfectly fine, their English was so-so.

This is a simple clean hotel at Colaba, the upper rooms have great views, the young girl at reception is the best front of house staff we have met in India. Their is wi fi, a cafe with views of the sea and a great bar on the roof.

Room Tip: Floor 3 or 4 front of hotel are the best
