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

On landing at the domestic terminal of Airport,we hired a prepaid cab and taken the... More

We stayed 2 nights at Hotel Kum Kum and felt it was good value for money. We arrived in the morning (~8am), and they let us check in early, which was great after an early morning flight. The bed was comfortable, the sheets were clean, and the bathroom was clean as well. The room smells a bit damp and musty... More

Excellent services! Nothing could be better than this hotel at the price they are offering rooms. You hardly find negative review for this hotel and the owner is replying to all the comments, which shows his willingness to provide best services to the customers. Hotel staff was very supportive and charismatic! Mr. Mody was there on the next table while... More

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
