“Hotel Mis-Fortune”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

Intrepid. That's the tour company that we were with when we started our trip from Mumbai to Delhi. Intepid apparently means 'Daring' or 'Fearless' and you'd have to be to stay in this crap fest.
I honestly thought I'd been done over by the company. I mean, if your first night is bad, God, makes you think what else they've got lined up for you.
And an extra nights stay in this thing through Intrepid costs £20 for a twin room. I've stayed in nicer places in Delhi's backpacker district for half the price. Twin Room. That's misleading. What you've got is a single room with two of those childrens beds it it, you know, the ones you buy when they're 6 and by the time they hit 7, you wish you'd just gone and bought normal single sizes. Ha! fool you. And fool you again if you book here.

A few observations... there were mosquitos in my bathroom because not all the slats in the bathroom window would close.
The air con system in the room didn't work. Fan did though. Can always open a window with the traffic outside right? Beep Beep!
This was the first of the hotels I stayed in that had a leaking toilet bottom. You do your thing, flush and the watch all that discoloured liquid seep around the bottom of the bowl... making its way to the 'shower' plug hole before stopping a foot or so away. Phew! Thank God the lighting in the bathroom was dim. Yuck!

Loved the Hotel rules on the back of my room door "Management not responsible for accidental death" (..just to the left, a plug socket falling off the wall..one of two actually)

I'd gladly exchange a few of the mosquitos I had for some of the other reviewers creepy crawlies. Where were my cockroaches that's what I want to know? I've been short changed! Minus a star!

Would I stay here again, what do you think?

Please do not book at this hotel. It is dingy and uncared for but stiil worse they allow the porters to use guests rooms when they are out. We had been out for five hours during the day, on returning we had a quick shower (cold I might add) asked for clean bedding as the duvet looked grubby, enquired at the desk directions to nearby restaurant. As we werer exhausted we were only out an hour. On our return our room key was not in reception, I ran upstairs to try the room door, it was unlocked and a porter was lounging on our bed under the duvet amongst my clothing.
The hotel management just said "sorry" no offer of changing rooms or help to find another hotel. They then started beating the boy, which was totally unacceptable and distressing. Keys were the managers responsibility.
It was only due to the kindness and help of some friends in Mumbai that we moved to another hotel
I belive our tour booking agent is still trying to getr a refund.
Please do not book with this hotel and if you have please cancel.

If you do not want to be conned and catch a terrible disease - DO NOT STAY AT THIS DREADFUL HOTEL EVER.
I had booked a 'Deluxe'!!! room before my tour started and was plonked into what can only be described as a disgustingly dirty, dangerous prison cell facing the road so the constant noise was unbearable.
My bathroom window was broken and I had 2 pigeons for company; the air con wires were wound round a metal curtain pole and live wires showing; most of the sockets were hanging off the wall; dirty linen and mould on the walls.
I complained to the useless reception man who waved his hand at me and said it was a 'Deluxe'.
After demanding to then view a standard and another deluxe, the man was very nervous and I saw that my room was disgusting compared to the standard room and mine was supposed to be 'Deluxe'
He moved me to another obviously standard room. CON CON CON and a very poor way to treat tourists.
I later (after talking to 6 other Westerners) found out that they had all been put in these awful rooms (they are all the rooms ending in 01 so beware)
Worryingly the rooms given to Indian guests looked clean and quiet.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE AS IT IS NOT EVEN A CHEAP PLACE TO CRASH FOR THE NIGHT - RESEARCH OTHER HOTELS.

THEY WILL CON ANY WESTERN TRAVELLER, HOWEVER HARDY A TRAVELLER YOU ARE.

Room Tip: RUN AWAY VERY FAST TO THE NEXT HOTEL AND NEVER LOOK BACK - or if you are forced to stay here as you...

We booked online in advance from America and when we arrived at the hotel they did not honor our paid booking and charged us another $72 for a room. We had nowhere to go so reluctantly stayed the night. There were large cockroaches crawling on the walls at night and the ceilings were filled with mold. There was no shower stall, just a bucket on the floor. To make matters worse the front desk staff are rude, arrogant and unhelpful. Nirmal Daas and Giselle were staffing the desk and they deserved to be fired for the way they treat guests. They are currently being investigates for fraud as they do not honor reservations that are prepaid and charge your credit card again and they lie about it!

This place is not really in walking distance to anywhere. A cab to Colaba was only $1 so that was good, but the rooms sucked. Dirty EVERYTHING, the a/c was either on or off and if it was on it was at 25 degrees no higher or lower. The sheets were stained. The shower head is right betwen the toilet and the sink so its impossible to shower without completely soaking the ENTIRE bathroom. The service was fast and friendly but I think you can find that anywhere

The overall property is average. The rooms are overall average. I had put up for a business trip, looking at the location. Food service is tolerable, bathrooms are just workable. Considering the cost and location, the property can be considered for stayting.

Room Tip: no specfic choice because a usual in metro cities, is difficult to find a hotel where y get sunlight...

Happened to stay in this hotel thinking that going for my business meetings would be easy. The location is fantastic as it is near Metro and approachable from both Churchgate and CST. It was easy as most of the meetings were in Nariman Point and Fort area. But should have taken any other decent hotel.
Inside the hotel – the reception is small and the lift is so small that only one person with a luggage can stand in. The lobby area was not looking good and it was stinking a little.

The room also was like that. There are two single cot bed on either side of the room. I don’t know why they have put two beds separately. They should have combined that and made it a little bigger. The room itself was small and not worth for the money spent. The restaurant is in the open terrace. They have just put 4 tables and 12 chairs. They have all kinds of food, but the complimentary BF is restricted to toast + corn flakes + milk + eggs + juice + tea. All only once and no extra.

Service was very average and the customer will not get a satisfaction in staying. A lots of compromise should be made.

Room Tip: Just for 1 or 2 days and when other hotels are unavailable..good option
