Room was clean, the place is convenient for those doing business in Powai and Andheri East area. It was quiet too. They aren't very flexible about checkout - you have to checkout at noon. Restaurant isn't well-staffed, but the ones available are courteous - breakfast spread was decent. You need to check in advance whether breakfast is included in the... More

A very value to money hotel in powai. The hotel has a nice view as i stayed on the 7th floor. The best part of this hotel is the staff. Had stayed there for a night and found the staff especially the manager Akash Mahakar went out of his way to help.

I stayed here for about a week during the IIT Bombay TechFest conference. Let me say that finding this place is RIDICULOUS. the taxi got us literally right infront of it and there were no signs to tell us it was there. We even went to the police station next door and they couldn't tell us where it was. Even... More

I stayed at the hotel for a conference at IIT, which is around 3 kms from this hotel, making it convenient. The booking was done efficiently by staff at Caliph and confirmed prior to my arrival. I initially booked for 5 nights, later decided to stay only 4. The staff did not make a fuss, thankfully. Location = Good. 2-3... More

Well as the title says, AVOIDE this place unless its absolute necessary for you to stay in the "Powai" area and other hotels are full. For a price difference of Rs. 500-1000 please consider other hotels in powai. Why do i say that ? 1. VFM - The per night cost of this hotel and the quality of room they... More

Clean room. For some odd reason they did not issue the keys to my room. I was there only for a night, so did not need the key, but it felt weird to not have a key to my room. Location is great for anyone who has work to do in Powai. Very close to Hiranandani. Service was dicey.

Conveniently located near Powai police station. The place to stay if one is looking for a comfortable and affordable stay near the business locality of Powai. Affordable, pleasant rooms with friendly service.

Caliph is the typical 'budget' business hotel you would see in Mumbai. Though it is not cheap - its not uber expensive by Mumbai standards either. I chose it because I was on budget and wanted to stay as close as possible to IIT where I had some work. This is also very close to the airport, with a Meru... More
