This place is the definition of value for money! Great service, good food, great people. The rooms are clean and the staff can always help you out. Colaba and the fort area are a 100 rupee taxi ride away.

Stayed here 2 nights, because it offers clean rooms for an acceptable price. Especially in comparison to other accommodations in Mumbai. Rooms are simple but clean. Located conveniently for seeing some Mumbai highlights (Tip: go by train!). Well English speaking staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good, and they're happy to store your luggage for the day. Like... More

Stayed here for three nights and found the room was ok for the price. Mumbai is quite expensive compared to the rest of India and this is a good option if you have a tight budget. Staff are quite helpful and you can get a decent cup of coffee from the rooftop restaurant. My room was very noisy but putting... More

Dear Sam Thank you for the great review. We have recently installed double glazed windows in most of our rooms which should reduce road noise quite a bit. Thank you again and hope to see you again soon. Regards Chirag Mody More

Very basic rooms in a fairly noisy environment. Temperamental wi-fi and average food in the cafetaria. Quite a sad place and they try their best to get you book tickets through their overpriced tavel agent. Not a place where I would stay again.

Dear Nantes Thank you for the review. I'm surprised by a few points in your review 1. Value - all our guests rate as as very value for money.

To look at the outside of the hotel it is not special. It is located 5 minutes walk from Grant Road station and 10 minutes from Marine Drive. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable.

1. Room & Bathroom After I read some of the negative reviews about this place the first thing I checked upon arrival was if there were bed bugs. Luckily, none.

Thank you so much for the great review. I do understand someone wrote about bed bugs but most of the guests really appreciate the cleanliness of our hotel.
