My husband and I stayed in that hotel 3 or 4 times for 1 to 5 nights.
Two good things about the place: central location and cheap price. It's also pretty clean, and the staff is ok. But don't count on high class comfort. The rooms are very very modest, although well-maintained. They are usually small, there is hardly much space to move around your bed. By the way, beds are not too uncomfortable and clean. Bathrooms are ok too.
What I quite like about the place is that you can always reserve a room by phone and the staff is pretty responsive that way.
The building is 4 stories high, almost all rooms are located on the 2nd floor and higher. Stairs are pretty narrow, and they don't have an elevator. So count on that.
And one more thing: DO NOT go for a walk in Jeevanjee Gardens - the park that contributed to the name of the hotel. If you do, all you will find is people sleeping on the benches and on the grass (a lot of them), and a large garbage dump in the bushes...
