Booked this hotel through Hotwire, so didn't know what it would be until after I paid for it. Hotwire said it was 3.5 stars, so assumed it would be clean and safe (Hotwire has never let me down...before). I was dead wrong this time. This hotel is at-best a 1 star (per Western standards). Rooms are reminiscent of the 80's... More

Hotel is situated at the back of the Taj Mahal Hotel. They were renovating the lobby area when stayed. Staff service was ok. Internet connection is not free, had to pay 100 rupees for 24 hour connection, which was a bit slow. Room was clean, which had a leaking ac unit on first night - it was repaired when reported....

I stayed here for 2 nights on an official visit to Mumbai. Booking was done by the company I work for. I will get straight to the good and not so good about the hotel. What I liked 1. Good internet speed. Though you have to buy a internet card daily. 2. Nice location. 3. Room tariff is reasonable. 4.... More

I was looking for a hotel room in South Mumbai at the last minute and that is when I came across HotelsAroundYou.com. I booked Hotel Diplomat and of all my booking experiences, this was the easiest. I found the best available discount on this site that saved me a lot of money. The hotel was actually pretty good for what... More

But sadly the rooms very small and the towels, blanket and Sheet are not clean. The worst thing in this hotel is the ( elevator ). I saw many... More

The location of the hotel is very good. Its beside everything important for tourism purpose. But the room is very small and old and very unclean. The service of the hotel stuff is not bad but they are very very dirty. The hall way is old and was being repainted ... Overall a average for low budget

Almost everytime i travel to mumbai, this hotel is my favourite. Rooms are nice, friendly staff, good food & above all very nice location (adjacent to taj). Markets, restaurants, coffee shops, india gate, marine drive are about 10 mins away from this place. Very peaceful hotel, nice rooms

I chose this place due to its location. Is just behind Taj Mahal Palace, one of the main in Mumbai. The services is good, good price with breakfast inclusive. The hotel bar is a nice place to have a drink after a long walking day. Do not expect luxury, the hotel is good equipped for what you need as basics:... More

Having been desperate for somewhere to stay in Mumbai during a festival we were directed here by another hotel. It's a bit utilitarian, in a government-hotel-from-the-sixties kind of way, but it was clean, the rooms were a good size, the shower was good, there was a bath, and plenty of cable channels. We got room service once and the food... More
