Situated in the heart of Borivalli (West) is Hotel Vala Janu, the only hotel within nearly 5 Km radius that offers a comfortable place to stay.

I had to visit Borivalli for a business meeting which made it necessary to seek residence for a night and Vala Janu was the only place to be in.

With rooms (A.C) starting with a reasonable price of Rs 1600 /- day, Vala Janu provides just the essential necessities to complement your business trip. A small but clean & comfortable room (double bed) provides the minimum requisites for the stay.

The better part of the stay is however the exotic restaurant attached to the main compound that provides a variety of cuisines with Indian Cuisine topping the list. The food definitely makes up for the stringent stay at Vala Janu.

All in all, Vala Janu is the only hotel in Borivalli that can meet all the needs of a business trip.

We Traveled to Borivali to be Near Family/Friends as a Family Wedding was in a Few Days. Arrived to Find the Room we had Reserved was not Available but Same Type, Deluxe Room, was Available on Different Floor. All Said the Room was the Same.

Spent the Day Traveling Around to Family/Friends and Doing the Last Minute Wedding Shopping. Late in the Evening Finally got a Tata Indicom Photon+ Internet Connection but Needed the Laptop, Fast Dash to the Hotel, and Back to the Vendor, 1 Hours Later Back to Hotel for the Night

Then the Interesting Part.
0330 AM, Knock at the Door, Mumbai Police. Was Informed just a Routine Check. Present Passport and Answered the Question. 2 Hours Later Finally Back to Sleep.
My Brother In-Law Arrived to Meet us for Breakfast, and was Told the Tale. He was Immediately Upset. Seems the Only Time Police Make this Type of Early Morning “Raid” is to Foreigners with Prostitutes in the Room. As I am an American and the Wife is an Indian (Now American Since 2005) the Hotel Just Assumed was not Correct, Yes you Need to Say the Hotel. Upon Questioning of the Morning Manager, he was Embarrassed Though, Seems one of the Young Boys Working the Desk Called the Police for the “Raid”.

So Basically if you are a Mixed Couple Traveling to Borivali, Avoid this Place, or call the Owner to First get “Permission” to Grace the Hotel with your Mixed Couple Presence.

This hotel is located in quiet part of Borivali, fairly clean, staff are friendly, rooms clean and bed linen was changed everyday. Good Restaurant (Majestix). Average décor. Value for money. I have been consistently staying there every year on my holiday. Recommended.

The Vala Janu Hotel is more for the overnight business traveller than tourists. I hit on
this tiny budget hotel because it was close to the homes of family members. Room rate
was almost Rs.2000/night ($50). Served the purpose of having a roof over our heads at
night if nothing else. Their room service menu was extensive and reasonable as they had a catering service affiliated with the chain of hotels belonging to this group.
