In the heart of Mumbai, on a busy street...you come across this discreet property which does not even have a proper signboard (presently that is). You walk in feeling a little pissed off at this super expensive city which made you settle for a hotel like this. By the time you've climbed up the stairs and entered the corridor where... More

Located in central Mumbai, it can be a bit daunting to navigate. Most taxis don’t know where to go but do know Lamington Road so just request this and push them as far as the hotel or a block from it. Taxi to South Mumbai is only 100rs at most. The rooms are quite basic and small but clean enough... More

It was a family visit for 3-4 days. The hotel is located on a walking distance from Mumbai central, Maratha Mandir. We searched for few hotels nearby like Hotel crystal on Gilder Path, however they were quite costly or not that clean. Here's the review: Rooms: Are ok, considering a budget hotel and Mumbai. Some rooms are small enough to... More

We are as you have rightly pointed out a clean budget hotel for travellers who want easy access to most areas in Mumbai. I do... More

Everything was perfect in this hotel like service by the reception staff, cleanliness and location, Would have given a 5 star rating this hotel.. but I don't know why they allotted us a tiny room that doesn't have walking space, dining space and not even a teapoy. We literally had our food sitting in the bed. Why so much discrimination??.... More

Stayed for 3 nights while in Mumbai - a little far from the action in Coloba but only a 25min cab and close to Grant Road train station. Rooms are basic but what makes this a great option is the staff. All very helpful and friendly, especially the night manager Felix who gave us great recommendations!!

The service is outstanding! Chirag did absolutely a great job. He went above and beyond to help us. He booked our traintickets from Kochin to Goa, a struggle for us because we didn't know how to get along with the Indian train system. He answered any question any time. Always smiling. Because of him we rate this hotel as very... More

When travelling on a budget it's hard to find anywhere in Mumbai for a decent price that is of a good standard but this place definitely gives you that. Looks nothing special from the outside but inside the welcome is professional and the rooms are simple but clean. We arrived early morning and although our room wasn't ready they let... More

A metro hotel with comfortable tiny rooms. Its located very near to the main road and very easy to find. They have a small roof-top restaurant and it cant accommodate more than 06-08 visitors which is a noticing disadvantage. Economical and very clean rooms. Can't find a peaceful environment because of the main road and has no good atmosphere. They... More

I've stayed here for four nights and my experience has been very pleasant. Even though rooms are very compact, for the price they charge that's best deal one can get in Mumbai. They have very good room service, hot water is available 24/7, tasty food, and most importantly conveniently located considering most of the tourist spot. One drawback is that... More
