We stayed there for two nights. Very nice hotel, rooms were clean. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice of fruits, pastries, omelette, etc. Mr Peter and his breakfast team were very kind and always prompt to serve...Hotel is well located. Wifi was working well and was very fast. Overall, had a pleasant stay as all the hotel staff were kind and eager to help. Special thanks to mr Rajesh who helped us a lot. Would definitely return and highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent location to access all tourist sites and amenities within the fort. Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Extensive choice on the breakfast menu and overall very good value for money. Unfortunately we were unable to give the hotel full marks due to the design of the bathroom not allowing great ventilation in the smaller room we had chosen and due to our request for an early check in, the room floor had not been thoroughly cleaned. Noise from the streets can be heard from the rooms but should be expected given the central location.

Room Tip: Worth paying the little extra for a better quality room

Excellent location. Quiet room. Really comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast. Excellent staff, especially Rajesh. Functional but ageing bathroom. Decor very good, but electrics are a let-down - all sockets hanging off walls. Would definitely recommend.

Good points;
1) staff are very VERY helpful & definitely make up for some of the hotel's bad points.
2) good location - in between CST train station & Gateway of India in Colaba.
3) breakfast good.
4) airport transfer cheap & reliable. He did drive like a maniac, but so does everyone in Bombay!
5) relatively good value...about £50 per night including one way airport transfer, breakfast & all taxes.

Bad points;
1) Rooms are very small. I believe there are different types of rooms in the hotel - I don't know which type we stayed In, but it was small.
2) badly stained bed linen, cushions & towels.
3) duvet is unbelievably thin...can't really call it a 'duvet'. Also it is too small for size of the bed.
3) damaged / badly marked walls.
4) the 'hot' and 'cold' parts of the shower were labelled on the wrong sides.
5) wifi is not free & it's not very fast.


In summary, I would stay hear again, but I hear on the grapevine you can stay at Taj Mahal Palace in Colaba for just over £100 if you get a good deal. Probably worth paying extra £50 per night for better quality. Although, I doubt staff would be as friendly at Taj.

stayed 4 nights at beginning of April in superior room in annex, room fairly large, clean and had all facilities required. Breakfast excellent, staff excellent with the exception of the elderly gentleman in reception who was very rude and unhelpful (hence 4 stars not 5) location is good with lots of tourist attractions within walking distance(30 mins).10 mins walk to CST station. Good selection of restaurants nearby but only one bar which looked like it was for men only.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: try room in annex

This hotel is in a good location and compared to others I've stayed in in Mumbai represents really good value. It's clean, bright, and comfortable, the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast is good, We stayed here for a few nights before heading to Kerala, and had no hesitation in booking this hotel again for when we returned to Mumbai. It's probably worth investing a few extra pounds to get one of the bigger rooms as the one we had was the cheaper option double and quite small.
Overall, really good.
