We checked out a room here before we booked that wasn't so nice. Since it was within walking distance of a lot of activities we decided to come back. They put us into a nicer room that made it worth the $80 USD they charged a night. Parts of the hotel appear to be damaged from monsoon and mold. Nicer rooms are larger and are located on a back alley away from the noise.
You can walk to Colaba and historic Mumbai from here,and you are blocks away from the Gateway of India. We caught a cab to Marine Dr. for about $3USD.
The hotel has a free breakfast in the adjacent bar. Expect it to be a bit thin and service to be lacking. We did visit the bar at night and it was a happening spot with a weird mix of old disco and pop hits.

Room Tip: Have them show you rooms- try to book in the tree lined alley

I had a budget and I wanted to be in South Mumbai. I found this hotel and I must say for the price I paid I cannot complain.
The rooms are a tad old and need sprucing but they were clean and surely comfortable.
The food was very reasonably priced and was very good(indian food)
The bar was super, good music and very well priced drinks.

Fantastic location and great value for money. Strongly recommend for leisure travelers. The shops and restaurants were all walk able and the lady at the reception was extremely well spoken and polite. Being right behind the Taj Mahal Hotel everything was extremely accessible. Thank you Hotel Diplomat for making our stay in Mumbai a memorable one.

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms.

The location is great and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine and got the job done. Bathroom coulda been cleaner...it was nice having a mini fridge. For mumbai this place is cheap but for india its a lil much for a budget person. That being said it was a good place just nothing amazing.

Excellent Location. You can reach all main tourists attractions by walk. I stayed in deluxe room for 4 nights. Big clean room with good view on the TajMahal Hotel. Everyday cleaning. Good breakfast. Excellent service. The value is ok for Mumbai.
