Definitely not worth the price we paid. Decent service of rooms, expensive restaurant. At the end of the stay I asked many times staff to arrange a taxi for us at fixed, agreed price in order not to be cheated. Of course they arranged a taxi driver that wanted much higher price than was agreed. Restaurant does not serve meat.... More

Stayed here for just one night and it was great. The hotel is a name a lot of taxi drivers don't know, but they know the area. It's located just next door to Hotel Shilton Palace. From outside it doesn't look like much, but from the inside it's amazing. Everything looks brand new and clean, the rooms are large and... More

Value for money, clean place with decent service, fit for people who come for business visit at Lamington road. The place is nearing its renovation, its not a botheration. Breakfast ordered was of ok quality, milk tea was fine. AC remote took its own time before we could make it work, beware of Pigeon droppings while getting out of hotel... More

I stayed at Kumkum for a week in July2014. It is a nice hotel, well maintained, clean and economic. Also located at a walking distance to both Mumbai Central & Grant Road Railway station. Only thing I find lagging in the service is that Wifi connectivity is not provided in the room, which was only accessible at the reception area.... More

Kumkum is a lovely hotel. A short taxi ride to the tourist attractions (60 rupees) or a nice walk especially along marine drive. The hotel is very clean and well run. Rooms are nice, good A/C and fan and decent bathrooms. A very nice place to stay. The food was good too in the cafe with decent WiFi. Staff are... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel. Very nice and helpful manager stuff during day watch, very clean - for India standards - rooms and nice, and cheap, compares to Mumbai touristic places, restaurant with tasty food and breakfast. Quite close to the center (ca. 80-90 Rs per taxi trip). The only inconvenience was a very small room - but... More

Hotel Kumkum was a great choice for the two of us fresh off the plane from the USA. The staff (especially Charmi and Anshul the owner) was so friendly and went above and beyond to help us get around the city, make food recommendations, and even helped us book train tickets when we kept getting wait listed (we went right...

Kumkum is close to the city centre. The staff is polite and helpfull. The rooms are very small, but well mantained. As hotels in Mumbai are very pricey it is agood choice if Your budget is limited. To find a better standard in the centre Yu'll have tp pay double.
