I had two very enjoyable nights at this hotel in mid April. I had a very early morning arrival from Singapore and thought it best to stay somewhere close to the airport. The driver picked me up as arranged and it was only about 20 mins to the hotel. I initially had a premium room which was very large and comfortable. The following two nights I was in an executive room which is what I had booked. To be honest the only difference I noticed was the premium room had a bar fridge and a slightly larger bathroom. Both rooms were of a very good size, clean and with modern fittings. I only had break fast in the hotel which was simple but nice. The restaurant was very busy each evening.
The only downside of this hotel could be the location. Although it is in a very nice area, I thought it was a bit far from the main tourist areas. To head to The Gateway to India etc I caught a tuk tuk to Santa Cruz train station which was about 15 mins away and then got a the train to Churchgate station. The tickets are only 90 INR first class or 10 INR second and it takes about 45 mins. To be honest, I though there were less people in second class so went that way after the first or second trip and the carriages seemed to me to be almost identical. Make sure the train stops at Santa Cruz on the way back as stations it does and doesn’t stop at are listed on the same board and can be a little confusing initially. From Churchgate you can walk to the Taj Hotel, Gateway to India, Victoria station, Colaba Causeway etc which are all about 15 to 30 mins from the station by foot or get a taxi etc.
The hotel itself is great and I recommend it but if you want to spend time downtown you need to allow an hour and a half travelling time each way which can take a chunk out of your day if you are only in Mumbai for a short time. It is away from the crowds and more relaxed though.
