“Bed Bugs! Do Not Stay Here!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2008

We stayed here during the month of July. We came here as it was highly recommended in the Lonely Planet. First of all they were asking way too much for the room. It was a tiny box. No bathrooms... only shared dirty squat toilets. There was a filthy shower in the room only.
Our first night there I was attacked by bedbugs and covered in bites. We changed rooms the next day. (would have changed hotels but everywhere else was fully booked or way over our budget). We complained to the hotel staff and they were very unhelpful. Would not give us any of our money back for the night I was bitten.
After we switched rooms, my boyfriend saw some girls checking out the (infested) room that we had left. He warned them and told them about the bedbugs and so they left. The hotel staff were very upset that we were turning away their business ! We weren't going to let anyone else stay in there though!
We traveled all through India and have traveled though other countries in SE Asia... this is by far the worst hotel I have experienced... and we've stayed in some pretty questionable places!
Don't trust your guidebook on this one! stay away!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2008

This was truly the worst place myself and my friend stayed in in India. The lonely planet is very misleading. It is not ridiculously clean. The smell as you walk up the stairs is enough to put you off. We had originally booked in for 4 nights and only stayed the one. It was too late when we got in to move anywhere else. The staff are friendly....but probably as they knew they were making money out of us. We paid 800 rupees for the room which was way too much. The lonely planet says rooms come with their own bathroom-FALSE! They come with a shower- but that's it. Squatting toilets are shared ...and are filthy. The tv in the room didn't work either. I would not recommend this hotel. Mumbai is expensive for budget accommodation so we decided to splash out a bit and move to the Astoria, which we loved.
