“Great choice in Mumbai”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

This place is great for the budget traveller. The location is AMAZING, the rooms are clean and a good size, the shared bathrooms are cleaned often (plus there are quite a few shower/toilet stalls so there is always one available), plus there is a TV (with English channels... bliss)!!!

Also, as an added bonus, the man at the front desk is really kind and helpful! If I come back to Mumbai, I will definitely stay here again!

I've had some pretty awful experiences in Mumbai, but this one went above and beyond my expectations. It is cheap considering some of the other options in this city. The cleanliness is also top notch and the staff are very helpful. The location is fantastic - right by the Gateway of India, which is also handy when getting taxi's as they know where that is. There is free Wi-Fi available. The only thing you're going to have to do is walk up 4 stories worth of stairs! Get a room with a window basically all of them have views of the water and aren't as stuffy as the non-window rooms.

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at the sea shore hotel!
They were very accommodating despite being very busy they managed to find and keep a room for us and we were so greatful.
The rooms are nice and the whole place is very clean. They gave great advise on where to eat in the area and the staff were all friendly. Just be prepared for the hike upstairs to get to the front door.

Room Tip: Room with a window would be best but not essential

Stayed here a couple of nights ago the place is a good guest house nice new facility's inside overall very good just one thing if you stay there get a room with a window as there is no AC just fan and the concrete windowless rooms are roasting hot I could only stay there one night couldn't sleep in the heat would have stayed longer if there were window rooms available. Paid 950Rs a night

I liked the seashore very much, and it was my first Hotel in India. It is well located, with the Gateway of India and the bustling touristy streets of Colaba in a short walks distance. You get sea view if you manage to get one of the rooms with windows (they can't guarantee you that when you reserve your room by phone), the rooms are clean, of a good size, with a comfy mattress, not too hard nor too soft. The bathrooms are sparkling new and clean as well, and the staff is friendly and helpful. For it's price, it's hard to find a better place in Mumbai, I'd say.

We booked this hotel as we had stayed here in 2009 for 550 rupees a night, since then its had a bit of a makeover and is now 990 rupees for a double room. Its very overpriced for what you get but then everywhere in Mumbai seems to be. We had booked a room over the phone and the manager said there would be a room available at 8am (since we were arriving very early in the morning). We arrived at 7.30 and the guys working there were pretty rude to us saying it was impossible the room be available till 12. We sat and waited and luckily a room did become free a couple of hours later - we'd asked for a double room with window. It had a big floor to ceiling window (with shutters, mosquito net but strangely no glass!) but it really was a stretch to call it a double room - it was a single room with a little cubby hole turned into a bed on the floor (with a crappy mattress). We were exhausted after a long train journey and a long wait for a room and just wanted to sleep otherwise I think we would have left and gone elsewhere. Overall the place is clean, bathrooms are good (though no hot water and the staff from the hotel and the hotel below also use the bathrooms which is annoying especially at peak times as there isn't really enough to go round), flat screen TVs etc but the staff are surly (though the manager is nice) and we had to ask numerous times for pillowcases, which they treated as though we were asking for something unreasonable. Staying here wasn't unpleasant but we wouldn't go back.

You get what you pay for - really basic but very clean, including the bathrooms which were new wet rooms. Staff we're really friendly and helped me in getting a bus to my next destination. Surprisingly quiet at night, although I guess that may have been luck that the other guests staying there at the same time as me were quiet. Great location right on the coast. Each cubicle style room had a ceiling fan which was great. Book in advance because I think it gets busy.
