We were recently transferred in Mumbai, and had to stay here on emergency for 1 night. After couple of month my kids informed they had left their iPad in Caliph hotel here. I visited the hotel again after a month, with least hope of getting it back as it was more than 3 month. I was shocked to see the... More

Stayed at Caliph for around courtesy my company. First thing one needs to know is that the hotel recently had a shift in ownership and management. Which means that there were minor issues to be found. I got a room on the second floor. The room was neat, comfortable and well furnished. During my stay I had access to both... More

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip. I was booked through Make My Trip and I was told that this is a three star hotel. I was shocked to see that the hotel is not a three star one. Though the location is good and they have a tall structure, but the room I was offered was pathetic,... More

I recently stayed in The Caliph with my family (2 kids) for 2-3 days and it was a lovely experience. The staff were very helpful, be it moving my umpteen bags from lobby to room and vice-versa, or helping us with Wifi or printing. The rooms are nice and spacious enough, the aircon works very well and the complimentary Wifi... More

Housekeeping staff indifferent and difficult to reach. Service : whatever time estimate you... More

Some context: I am an expat on a business trip to Mumbai and have been living in the Caliph (formerly Metro Residency) for 3 months. These are my objective observations. Cleanliness: very bad, the housekeeping staff are incompetent. They don't clean thoroughly, just pass a mop on the visible floor not bothering to clean corners where dirt accumulates. I have... More

For business trip or just a weekend out with Family, The Caliph can always be counted. I recently had a very short runing stay at the hotel but the staff ensured that all requests are addressed immediately. I would speacially like to thanks Mr. Akash Mahakali for accomodating my running trip with a pleasant smile. All the best to THE... More
