“First room we were in had (painted over...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2010

First room we were in had (painted over) mold all over the walls and smelled like moth balls. We complained and were upgraded to a sea view room that was better but still smelled. Location is great, but it is expensive and dingy.

Excellent location, right on the Arabian Sea in the Colaba district. The only rooms that are good are the end rooms. The rest --- especially those in the back --- are dismal. Staff seems engaged in serving their customers, but there's a lot of miscommunication and confusion. Still trying to get them to sort out my double billing and it's been a month.

Average pretty much sums it up, although nothing was particularly awful. The rooms are dated and the corridors feel quite claustraphobic. The location, however, is very good (I think that's what you pay for), and we enjoyed a beer on the terrace outside. Don't expect too much and you'll be fine.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

We´ve seen actually 3 rooms here, first night we stayes in a 'luxury' room as they didn´t have a standard, that was absolutely ok, then they switched us to a standard - mould all over the walls that you could hardly breethe, filthy stained bed clothes, dirty towels, etc.. We switched to a marginally better room and slept that night on our own towels fully dressed. It was discusting, just as the breakfast was -all we ate is bananas. Service was horrible too. I´m a well experienced third-world traveller, but as a Westerner, believe me, you cannot stay in this hotel. It´s a shame for a hotel in that location. Photos are attached.

horrible service as they dont clean my room for three days and the front desk had terrible attitude. It was not a pleasant visit at all. The only best thing about this hotel is the location. The breakfast was plain and simple. I would never stay there again myself.
