just arrived back from this hotel, have stayed here 3 times but this will be the last time. we were put on 2nd floor above the nightclub which is on 1st floor. When our dear Mumbai friends asked them to move us they moved us four 2 nights to a suite on 4th floor, this should have been good but no, the music was so loud the walls were vibrating on the fourth floor. On the Sunday we were moved back to our old room, being tired after the 2 nights prior lack of sleep, we thought we would have a nap in the afternoon............no we couldn't the music started again at 3.00 p.m ..............YMCA full blast! we complained to the reception which was just outside our room (on top of the music we had phones ringing night and day and voices) he just shrugged his shoulders and said it would stop at 9.00 p.m. The doors were vibrating, the walls and more, nightmare.

Don't bother with this hotel - most staff are bad mannered, breakfast is terrible, room service slow. Need to decide whether to have a nightclub or a hotel!

Bathroom door filthy needs a good wash

Room Tip: never accept rooms on 3rd and 2nd floor.............but 4th is still noisy on Friday and Saturday...

We stayed here for 13 days in August, we found it an excellent place to stay in a great location,despite being in busy Colaba it was very quiet and comfortable for sleeping at night. This hotel had good decor, friendly and helpful staff. Air conditioning always worked and not noisy. Staff always went out of there way to be helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay in the heart of Mumbai.Special thanks to Sushil Jadhav.

I stayed here alone for a week. Inspite of being right on the very crowded Colaba Causeway, this hotel felt very safe. The service was excellent and the location is very convenient, a minute from Gateway of India, Taj Hotel and the sea. Also, great shopping just outside with a lot of cult food places around. The food at Gordon House (All Stir Fry) is great too, huge quantities. The breakfast buffet is really nice. However, the rooms are slightly small with no views (windows open to shaft/ another building).

What looks like a good concept fails fast.noisy with drills and hammers going all day and at night some apology for a night club pollutes the air with boom boom pointless music.this reverberates throughout the building.
Some say food is good.i was too tired to eat it!
Suggest they decide what they want to be.a hostelry or a nightclub.cant be both

Room Tip: As far from night club as possible but even this will not help you

The best thing about this hotel is without doubt - Food and Location. Talking about location first, the hotel is located at a stone's throw distance from Gateway of India (Mumbai's most important landmark) and is a beautiful and small property well connected by other parts of Mumbai. The other great thing about the hotel is the restaurant on the Ground Floor. The restaurant is called 'All stir Fry' and the Wok is something that shouldn't be missed.

Every room in the hotel with or without air conditioning on- reeks of paint thinners.

It is horrifying that they call themselves a 4 star hotel yet expect guests to sleep and breathe in paint thinners!

Book and stay here at your own peril.
