Stayed at the Ramada for a week (prior to that I have stayed at the Holiday Inn, juhu and Hotel Sun n'Sand, juhu).
Right off the bat I can state that the Ramada is not in the same class as the other two.
I was dissappointed with the room - we had to change rooms twice due to mold growing on the walls. There were also minor cracks in the plaster of the walls - just not what you expect from a Ramada hotel.
- good location, close to Linking road
- friendly staff (there are some young men doing their internship there and they will go ou tof their way to assist
- excellent breakfast buffet
- nice Chinese restaurant (however, the BEST Chinese I have had is at the "Sampan" located in Holiday Inn, juhu)
- right next to Chowpatty beach and the shacks abut the hotel property
- no beach view as it has been walled off due to the closeness to Chowpatty (both Sun n'Sand and Holiday Inn have wonderful patios you can lounge at and enjoy the sea view).
- the hotel manager was terrbile:
a) he was not helpful when we were trying to change our room;
b) he refused to provide us a large car to go to the airport. Our booking included an airport drop-off but he insisited on giving us the smallest car, consequently our baggage did not fit. (we were 3 adults with 5 bags).
So we had to pay him extra for a bigger car (and we were stuck with his rate as we had to check out at 4:00am - not the easiest time to arrange for other transport). The worse thing was that these cars are owned by the hotel so he could have easily given us a bigger one- left a bad taste.
- Do NOT use the in-house travel agency - they messed up some of our bookings and are quite pricey as well
When I return to Bombay I will stay at the Sun n'Sand.
