The location of the hotel is probably the only plus point of the hotel and oof course the affordability. It is probably the only budget hotel with an open air restaurant, right on the Juhu Beach. The rooms are very small and not very clean. Food is below average but they serve excellent Tandoori Chicken. Laundry serice is really pathetic, so is the overall hugiene of the staff.

Room Tip: If you have to stay there , select a room which is beach/sea facing.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently (Sept.,11). Couple of weeks back stayed at Ramada Palmgrove (which was next to this hotel) and discovered this hotel while walking on the beach. As Ramada was sold out for the period I intended to stay, for a chnage tried this hotel.

Got excited when got a sea facing room but that excitement was short lived as the windows of the room were not in a great shape. I mean too much of noise was creeping in. There was a kind of maintenence going on in one of the rooms close by and there was this annoying "hammering" sound all the time (during the day). Room is not in a great shape though it is functional enough. Paint got peeled off at many places. But looks like Bathroom was recently renovated - atleast it was in a good shape..

Variety of food served at Breakfast is very minimal.

Had dinner couple of times at the sea facing open air restaurant and the food & service over there is excellent.

Staff are courteous and are very efficient.

My hotel package includes free airport drop-off and when asked for the same just before check-out - they were unable to provide the same as they need "prior information" (of atleast couple of hours) - which was a bit disappointing. Atleast they should have shared this information when we checked-in.

Anyway, an average hotel at a very good location (right on Juhu Beach).

The Location is excellent, Right on the Juhu Beach. All Rooms have a Sea view, but when you open the windows you really dont get the sound of the sea waves. Its the noise created by the chilling plant which is more irritating than soothing. The rooms are very small and have uncomfortable chairs and very narrow beds. Food quality is good but pretty expensive. They have a restaurant with sea view bang on the Beach. They charge the sky for the rooms too. Idealy you get get a better room near the airport at a better price.

Brilliant sunrises, beautiful sunsets, cool sea breezes, romantic moonlit nights – the ocean at its best- all at the foot of Citizen Hotel! This quaint hotel is ideally situated on Mumbai’s most popular Juhu beach. Note the phrase “ON the beach”, because it is actually ON the beach, not “near” it or “close to it” but ON IT!
The hotel is strategically located close to both domestic and international airports. Citizen Hotel has 45 centrally air conditioned well maintained rooms, all of which have a fabulous view of the Arabian Sea.
Citizen Hotel is an ideal venue for conferences, weddings and parties. There are 2 banquet venues to choose from, each easily able to accommodate 40-300 guests.

I have mixed feelings about this property, as no matter which way you look at it, BOmbay is severely overpriced city for what you get, but.......If you are passing thru Mumbai and want to spend some time in the JUhu area, and be smack on this fun crazy beach, this is a good choice...Rates are high, but check around the various sites for discounts.....this is probably your best bet! The hotel is very old, the rooms are small, but they are clean, functional, and mostly renovated and have gorgeous views onto juhu beach...Staff was very helpful, Internet available but chargeable at okay rates, and seaside restaurant good but expensive..Overall the place has some old world charm, I guess it is old elevators....If you are not seeking luxury but want a excellent location for a few days, I would say go for it....
