Not at all good experience. When I arrived they didn't understand what is a voucher and their english at reception was very limited. There was no bed sheets in 1500 Rs room, the hot water had to take with bucket outside of the room, which was not very clean. And there was bed bugs!!! Later I red some reviews in... More

This place is utterly filthy and a soulless dungeon. As I write this I can see mice scampering along the filthy sticky carpet. I got up a minute ago and one ran across my foot. The bedsheets are white and covered in little specs of blood from bedbugs -- do they even wash the sheets? I'm going to leave with... More

A good deal for Mumbai but not as cheap as other reviewers have said - we paid 550 rupees for twin room (shared bathroom) - private bathroom was 1050 rupees. Basic (just beds in a small room) but very well located. The room was clean (ish) and clean sheets were brought for us - though we were a bit started... More

Thanks to the other reviews we decided to go with this hotel and were not disappointed :) The rooms are cheap and basic, we paid 400 rupees for a twin room and shared a bathroom (bucket jobbie/squat toilet). They don't serve food but there are plenty of restaurants and streets stalls nearby, so you are not short of places to... More

This place is CHEAP, there's very little in Mumbai that can even come close to the price. Keep that in mind, because you are going to be disappointed if you think that 500 rupees is going to get you much in this city. However, what this place may lack in cleanliness and appearance, it makes up for in price, location,... More

If it was mentioned in Lonely Planet you would have to pay 800 Rs for a double room and it would be absolutely impossible to find the room there. Thank God LP didn't find them and you can stay there for 440 Rs (double). It is extremely close to Victoria Station so great location, and for small money you have... More

Sheel Hotel is a nice hotel and the cheapest option we found in Mumbai. The staff is really friendly and the rooms are clean. It is in a great location, right next to the CST (or VT) train station and across from the Post Office where you can ship packages home. Good value hotel in a great location! I highly... More

After a long search for a rather cheep hotel we finally found the Sheel Hotel. It is not the higher standard than the usual 600 IRS hotels in Colaba (means very small & all with shared bathroom), but when you have to stay a longer time in Mumbai you will be glad having a cheeper option. Compared to hotel prices... More
