Two day stay. My impression was not very strong one way or the other. Staff was friendly, but few understand english. Warm water required a long wait. Laundry was excessively expensive, more than in London. Room prices seemed cheap, but after seeing a couple of comparable places on the same street, it turns out it was actually rather steep. A...

Stayed here for three nights in mid-January. Checked in at 4:30 in the morning—staff was gracious enough to provide a temporary room for me at no extra charge. Rooms are basic, but clean. The upstairs restaurant is a godsend—generous hours (6:30 am to 10:30 pm) and very good food, cooked right in your sight. Didn't use room service, but that's... More

Stayed for two nights in early Jan. Very helpful and friendly staff. Pricey for what it was (INR2800) for two nights in tiny room and tiny bathroom though it was at the end of the more expensive Christmas/New year period. Advice to any potential guests is to shop around if buying bus tickets via the reception as we paid double... More

Hi Ronan Thank you for the review. I'd like to point out that indeed we do not provide the cheapest tickets for our guests. The reason for that are listed below 1. We have associations with only reputed bus companies. 2. We prefer to also keep safety and comfort of our guests as a top priority. 3. Reliability - we... More

We stayed in a standard room for 4 nights. The room was very simple and clean. Our days were packed with activity, so we were relieved to be able to eat breakfasts and dinners at the onsite restaurant. Food is fresh and cooked right in front of you. Cappuccino was great to have onsite, too! The front desk staff was... More

Mumbai hotel prices come as quite a shock in comparison to elsewhere in India - but hotel Kumkum is a clean, pleasant budget hotel with friendly staff at good value for Mumbai. The air conditioning unit in our first room was a little loud and the rooms are on the small side but are very clean. The restaurant upstairs did... More

Dear Louis Thank you so much for the great review. We do try hard to provide a great experience at a good value and am happy that you felt the same. We are also upgrading all the AC's to split AC's which should limit the sound in the future. Thank you again and see you soon. Regards Chirag Mody More

We stayed here over the new year period for 5 nights. We were slightly worried as we had heard very bad things about budget hotels in Mumbai but despite arriving at 6.30 in the morning we were shown straight to a nice, clean, fairly spacious room, with basic but clean bathroom until our actual room was ready. Our room was... More

For Mumbai a very cheap place. Really good and clean room. Super friendly stuff. Restaurant was super cheap. I staid there with my girlfriend and we really like it. Stuff helped us many times to save money. If you want higher standard go to 5 stars hotel. We will come back Kumkum!
