This is probably the best Sofitel I have ever stayed to date.
I stayed in a Luxury King Room which is tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. The bed and pillows are soft and sooo comfortable. It's the kind of bed that I would wanna laze in for the whole day. Definitely not for people who likes firm bed.
The bathroom is huge and I love the layout where the bathtub, shower area and toilet are 'classy-ly' separated but all behind a sliding glass door. So good for both staying alone or with colleague/partners.
Apart from being a beautiful hotel, the service is even more impressive. From the security at the gate to staff at check in counters to staff at restaurants to housekeeping team, all of them never fail to greet, smile and always ready to help. Such warm service from the heart is rare in cities. Breakfast is good with a wide variety of choice. I did not notice if the menu for hot dishes are change daily as I went for the American breakfast dishes during my 1 week stay. The service team at the Breakfast room are attentive, cheerful and friendly.
Many hotels provide ironing equipment upon request but in Sofitel, each room has its own set in the wardrobe hence no worries about wrinkled clothing.
I personally love white bedding set as it gives a clean feel, however, stains are more visible as well as difficult to remove. Being a member of Accor, I do trust that the bedding are clean hence I did not request for a change. Instead, I sleep on the side with no stains. However, it would be great if the housekeeping team could put in some effort to ensure that stained bedding are not used as it can be quite disgusting for the next user.
2nd suggestion – since we could not drink direct from the tap, it would be good to provide more drinking bottled water in the room.
3rd suggestion - Sofitel being a French inspired hotel, it would be great to provide nice smelling toiletries such as lavender, etc. I have used products from Kama Ayurveda before. But the series offered by Sofitel is rather disappointing. This is purely personal preference.
Lastly, are the mini bottles being reused? As the bottle of body lotion in my room looked very dirty around the opening hence I just left it unused.
Overall, it is still a double thumbs up for Sofitel Mumbai BKC!
