“Women travellers beware”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Spent two nights at the Regent at the beginning of a 23 day women's tour of India. Our room was average, safe did not work , told staff but nothing was done, the location of the hotel is fantastic but that is about it. Two of the women on the tour were distressed when their rooms were entered by male staff at night supposedly to fix something, one woman had four staff in her room and felt very threatened and distressed.

This was our first trip to India, at no time in the following 21 days did we experience any harassment at all. I would not recommend this hotel for women travellers

I had made an advanced booking for 3people at this hotel before traveling to India. On our arrival day the room given to us was a small 2bed room, and the check in process took over 2hours. Basically the hotel had not prepared for our arrival. Bear in mind we arrived at 11pm at night and did not get to a good room till 1am.

After several complains, we were given a suit that was spacious enough for 3 but the AC wasn't working in the room, the room wasn't cleaned,there were small black insects crawling on the bed and pillows, and the flush wasn't working.

We had to argue with the staff to get the room cleaned and someone attempted to fix the AC at 12am with no luck. Being exhausted from a trip, we eventually slept.

We checked out the following morning after letting the morning staff know of the difficulties faced the previous night. This is when the hotel offered us a room that would have been suitable for us. This room was being used by guests that would check out that afternoon.

Having received poor reception and services the night before I opted to decline this offer. It just confirmed that the hotel hadn't prepared for us and there was no point in making an advance booking and paying for it upfront as the management doesn't really take your request into consideration.

I had high expectations of this hotel and was deeply disappointed.

Great location just behind the Taj Hotel and in a sideroad without the noise of the large avenues. Very friendly service, we appreciated especially the spontaneous offer to have a shower in the evening before going to the airport, although we had already checked out earlier that day. Large room with a third bed, which was a real bed. Very good value for the reasonable price. A pity that internet is only free with the computer of the reception, but has to be paid for in the rooms.

We arrived for one night and were greeted by very friendly, helpful staff. They assisted us with train fares and let us have a shower in the evening when we had already checked out. The rooms are clean and comfortable. As two girls staying here we felt comfortable and relaxed in the hotel environment. Will certainly stay again. Brilliant location to all of the sights as well.

Stayed for 3 nights end of september. Good value for money. Excelent location in colaba. Rooms on second floor best. White bedsheets and towel have had severe beatings at the dhobi. Need soft white linen. The staff are corteous and freindly. The front office staff are very polite and helpful. The internet is cumbersone to use with a pre paid voucher . It should be free as most visitors have smartphones. Internet signal weak inside rooms.

I stayed in this Hotel on a business trip. Hotel is in a Vantage Location very close to Nariman Point, Fort and other prime areas and has excellent commuting facilities. The best part of the hotel is Sunrise view from Gateway of India which is 2 min walk from the Hotel.Please do not forget to carry your sports shoes for an early morning walk across the sea view. The staff is extremely courteous Though the rooms are little small but I find the stay very comfortable with excellent linen and clean washrooms. The only flipside is on the towel and toiletries in the wash room and the breakfast place which is not air-conditioned. There are very good coffee joints like Star Bucks and Coffee day in the walk able vicinity. Though i checked out at 12noon , the reception was extremely cordial and accommodated my baggage till late evening.

I would certainly recommend this hotel and would like to come back soon

Room Tip: Please make it a point to carry your own towel and toiletries as I found the same not up to the mark...

Wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Pros:
* Excellent location - right next to Taj Mahal Palace hotel & Gateway of India
* People are pleasant

Cons:
* Cramped
* Not clean - see title of this post
* Breakfast was in a cramped area - with flies & some weird black spots on the corn flakes
* Can get better hotels in South Mumbai for the same price

Not going back.

Room Tip: Don't take the 1st floor -- your room will open directly into their restaurant.
