“Nice Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Rooms are big and nice, staffs are descent, location wise very near to gateway of india, rooms are clean, breakfast is good. I have stayed 5 days in this hotel. The structure of this hotel is very old. Good for the traveller.

Rooms are quite a good size. Try and pick one away from the road or the noise makes it very difficult to sleep if you get the wrong side of the building.
If you get an inside room it is quite peaceful given the central location.
Staff are helpful and friendly.
Rooms are reasonably clean.
Location is great for getting around and right opposite the only starbucks in town.
I have stayed here on about 4 occasions and would stay again.
Breakfast is a basic but OK.
Room service food is very tasty.
I have had a couple of cockroaches in one of the rooms I stayed in here, but it is India.

We stayed for 3 days at the beginning of May. Ideal location as just a few minutes walk from Gateway to India, entrance to ferry for Elephant island and local shops and restaurants ( recommend Leopolds ) The hotel itself has friendly staff who were all eager to help. Our room was very clean and spacious. We paid for a deluxe room which had a view of the Taj Mahal Palacehotel pool . Good complementary breakfast in buffet style. We were also given a complemetary room to freshen up before flying home this room was not as nice so would recommend going for the deluxe room and request the view of the Taj Mahal palce as most rooms will be facing a wall.

Room Tip: request deluxe room with view of the Taj Mahal Palace

Not very Comfortable on Trip
As Being hardly 2Mins Walking Distance From Gateway of India(+point of Hotel), Food is Excellent Making a Nice Place to Stay in Mumbai,
But..................
Only Drawback is it`s Small Rooms Leaving One Suffocated Sometimes

Stayed for 4 nights in April-13. We chose to stay here because of its location even though the hotel is totally overpriced. It is located right at the backside of the Taj Mahal Hotel and India Gate. There is also a Starbucks right across the street, and just a few blocks away there are several restaurants and cinema etc. Our room was ok, the AC made constantly noise even when it was off. It was also dirty, especially the bathroom and there were ants on the floor. The staff was very helpful but it was hard knowing when to tip them and not, as we felt they wanted us to tip them for everything. The room felt unsafe as the key and keyhole was very old and could easily be opened with any key. Breakfast was good.

We stayed there 2 nights in Jan and we only chose this hotel for the location, just a 2 min-walk from the Taj Mahal Hotel. We paid more than 100 USD for a night and it was totally overpriced. The bathroom was dirty and full of ants so we had to change room. Even though the staff was helpful in that situation, we did not enjoy our stay there. We felt like the staff was always expecting tips. The AC in the room was very noisy. The beds were okay but the bed sheets could have been much cleaner. The breakfast was average.
