I would say overall the hotel was quiet average for the price but Mumbai is expensive so taking that into consideration and its proximity to chowpatty beach it did the job and served its purpose well! However our room was slightly damp and we struggled to find it everytime we left as no Tuk Tuk driver knew where it was... More

We stayed 5 nights in July 2015, the hotel is well located to go in every direction for no more than 200 rupees (usually half that if you barter!) although 400/500Rs for airport. The room is fine, air-con and fan worked perfectly and room was cleaned well. The restaurant upstairs is great for breakfast and lunch, lovely food and really... More

Ok guys, if I have to judge this place what is important to recognize is the fact that to be an Indian hotel isn't that bad. Comparing to occidental vision on hotels this is a 2 star one. The hotel is very well located into the heart of Mumbai and the prices are very cheap for us, you'll pay 8... More

It was as described, and the staff were brilliantly helpful and Kumkum helped make our stay in Mumbai great. It was very easy to get anywhere from Kumkum as there was a local metro stop next door and plenty of taxis outside at all times. And there was plenty of good affordable food nearby.

The end of a couple of months in India, so was a perfect finish to the trip, staying in such a clean and well-maintained hotel. The location is ideal for those wanting to explore the city, without paying the ridiculous prices that other Mumbai hotels demand. Incredibly reliable staff, who gave us great impartial advice on the city, what tours... More

After being time and time again being frustrated with disorganised and dirty hotels in India for the last 2 months we were very happy with Hotel Kumkum's professionalism over the phone and over email coupled with their clean and functional room which has everything you'd want. All of this for extremely competitive prices, something that is hard to come by... More

I stayed for 1 night for a business trip. Overall clean hotel and economical as compared to other hotels in Mumbai (of the same facility). Average rating just because of 3 things. (1) Room was smelling of cigarette when I entered (as the previous guest may be smoking) and the smell didn't go away even after generous room freshener sprays... More

We stayed at the Kumkum on two separate occasions and both times we were very impressed. Rooms clean and comfortable, restaurant serving basic but delicious and fresh food cooked right infront of your eyes (masala omelette for breakfast recommended). It's not the most glamorous but this is Mumbai and, for the price, there is nowhere better in the city. Best... More
