This hotel is located just behind the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace, exactly opposite to Starbucks and at throw away distance to The Gateway of India. A few seconds walk to the shopping streets of Colaba Causeways, Seashore. Leopold cafe and a very famous regal theatre. Though it is some 40yr old hotel, it is keeping up with contemporary style.

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

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.
