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.

The location was great, right around the corner from the gateway of india and the Taj Mahal hotel. However the room was pretty average considering the price, it was clean and had an en suite and comfyish beds but we had this everywhere else we stayed, and they cost a lot less. The first night we were there we barely... More

The hotel is ideally placed a five minutes' walk from the famous Gateway to India. The surroundings are pleasant - except for the heart breaking poverty you see everywhere - and the shopping area around the hotel is worth while exploring, especially the Kashmir shops. But the hotel as such is very loud and rather diasppointing. The rooms are quite... More

This hotel is a disaster and should not be allowed to be in business. The rooms are dismal, dull and dirty with terrible views (I can only speak for the two rooms I looked at). There is no safe in the room and the cups are unclean. My friends found dirty sheets and hairs in the bed which is the... More

There are couple of nice features of this hotel, and a couple of others. I'll share the good news first. The location of the hotel is excellent, located right across the amazing Taj hotel, a minute walk from the Gate of India - it doesn't get much better than this in Kolaba. Judging by my room, the rooms are perfectly... More

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
