This is good looking business hotel in Mumbai. Room size is very small. Toilet is not modern enough. Food quality is not good. Lift is manual and small size. Best part of this hotel is location. It is just behind of famous Taj hotel.

The only thing positive about this dilapidated hotel is it's location. If you need to spend one night in Mumbai in the Colaba area then this will suffice. The cost for the quality of the room was the highest from the 6 hotels we stayed at on this trip to India in December. Live and learn - and then relate... More

The hotel is located just 5 min walk from Gateway of India/Taj Mahal Palace and opposite Starbucks. It is around 32 km from airport and early morning it took by taxi around 40 min to reach. The hotel is an old hotel well known to the locals. The rooms are okay though the split AC was somewhat noisy. The service... More

Location of the Hotel was prime as it is right next to The Taj Mahal Palace and Gateway of India.. Experience was pretty good with the staff and service but I hope the rooms could have been bigger.. Rooms were fairly small as compared to other hotels and looked better online. Food was pretty good as whatever we ordered was... More

I choose to give 2 stars not because it's a bad place, but because other than its location it has nothing work for it. Rooms are small and basic, hotel gives a property run feeling without the old school royal feel. The breakfast buffet is the pits. Extremely well located, near Taj and adjacent to Colaba shopping lanes. Clean Road... More

The only thing in favor of this place is its location. Walk out and you're infront of the towering gateway. The rooms are nothing great, the interiors tacky, the bedding uncomfortable, the corridors dingy and depressing. The tv doesn't even have access to any standard English channel. Definitely not worth the tariff they charge.

This hotel seemed better online than upon arrival, the room was quaint as was the hotel. The staff seemed a tad distanced and did not have hotel guests satisfaction as a top priority. The location however was great positioned right next to the gateway to India. The street was full of life right outside our doorstep and there were many... More

Just behind the Taj Palace is tempting and the location sounds too good, but the hotel itself was average. Staff was friendly, but a big turn off was the separate beds. Tragically, the beds were separated by a fixed nightstand. We just had breakfast, which was again just standard. The AC was a bit old fashioned but functional. No view... More

I was there on a business trip, though it is close(walk able distance) to gate way of India, the price for room are bit high and not worth for it too. Room are bit old and choice of food items for breakfast is also not attractive. Overall Cleanliness to be improved.

The staff could not be more acommodating or caring. Breakfast each morning is varied and delicious catering for all tastes. Rooms are well appointed and clean. Central to all you need in Colaba, shopping , a range of restaurants and plenty of sightseeing. Good if you are on a budget. If you need anything all you have to do is... More
