The only USP of this property is its location else nothing is there. I stayed in this hotel on 15 August, they charged me hefty amount more than any five star in Mumbai, yet no service no hospitality.

Staff was very helpful and co-operative. Food was excellent and so was the ambiance that it was served in. No two thoughts on the best hotel... More
