The location is definitely the best selling point for this hotel but I found the staff all very friendly and helpful. The first room I was given was dark with 2 VERY hard single beds. I have a bad back and I often find the beds in mid range Indian hotels just tooooooo hard. As a result the second day... More

This hotel is situated directly opposite the Taj Mahal hotel in Colaba. It is very close to the Gateway to India which is where you can get the boat to go to Elephanta caves. There are many cool night spots that are a short cab ride away so if you are a tourist to Mumbai this hotel is perfectly located.... More

We chose this based on the location, as we had a friend staying at the Taj, and it's just behind it. Actually, we had a view of the Taj from our room, which was very nice. There is a Starbucks across the road and other places to eat around. You can walk to the water from the hotel, but beware... More

The hotel is situated directly behind the Taj and a short distance from Cafe Leopold, ideal for all the major sights of Mumbai. The staff were fantastic, very polite and always helpful. The rooms were a decent size and had tea/coffee making facilities but need to be updated.

The hotel location is the best part of it. Located just behind the Taj mahal Palace and in the centre of Colaba makes it convenient for travellers to stay here. The CST is a 10 mins distance in case you look for a good hotel nearby railway stations. Taxi is always availble at this area even at late night. Food... More

The hotel is situated right behind the Taj Mahal palace, a block away from Café Leopold and within distance of all the major sights in South Mumbai so location is pretty much perfect. It was clean, functional and the service was polite and fast. Like in most of Mumbai it is noisy and also located above a night club! Initially... More

This hotel is wonderfully located just behind the Taj Mahal and in the middle of action in Colaba. staying here for an ideal Mumbai tourist could be a great convenience. BUT.. the rooms/quality of linen/b/fast all are below par. in fact i was put up by a client and did not enjoy it at all.
