The building is very shabby. Rooms were small and the facilities were just average. The surroundings were very dirty. Service was not very good and we had to complain repeatedly to get the lights fixed.

Am a regular at this hotel since 2012. However, had a harrowing experience this time. Checked in on 17th May 2015. Today on 18th left for my office at 9.30am and returned at 11.00pm. Was absolutely stunned to find the room not made up. Everything, including morning tea cups, soiled bed sheets and towels etc. Were as it is. On... More

I would call it a business hotel, so not many facilities for tourists, such as providing information about the city. NO Internet facilities were available for guests, which in this day-in-age is surprising, particularly for a hotel that calls itself "International." As foreigners without cell phones it made it inconvenient, particularly with income-tax deadline in our home country. Good quality... More

The room which I had was quite nice, big and cozy and bathroom is also spotlessly clean... The housekeeping is pretty good in keeping your room clean every day and an important... More

From the street it looks terrible, but it is a decoy the true hotel is inside the block. Reception and coridors are old but the rooms are clean and large and if you have good ear plugs you will be able to sleep(street trafic). A good compromize for a low price hotel in Mumbai.
