We stayed in Sea Palace Hotel for one night.
Below are some brief points about it:
-- room size quite small but ok
-- only twin beds
-- bed sheets old and unclean - had to sleep in clothes
-- generally all furniture and room equipment is old
-- the room was equipped with both fan and air conditioner (very old and noisy), it was very stuffy and we chose to sleep with open window
(and got cold in the morning since the beds were exactly at the window)
-- room view ok, quite in the night
-- hot water 24 hours!:)
-- for those who suffers from cats allergy -- be aware of cats in halls
-- poor choice of food
-- mainly traditional Indian food not acceptable for Europeans
-- bread/toasts and eggs were available
-- something was wrong with the water - tea smelled badly
-- overall ok, but not accurate
-- we ordered dinner through "room service", as usual we requested all dishes without chilly and not spicy, needless to say that we could enjoy only steam rice, as usual as well... :)
-- the girl at the reception could not find our passports...
-- I paid for our dinner at the reception desk by a credit card, my friend called me, I left and forgot to take my card back. No one from the hotel staff contacted me afterwards. We left Mumbai after the check-out and I had to block my card.
-- far from the airport (not less than 30 min at night)
-- sea facing
-- walk distance from the city center and the gates of India (after the breakfast we started to walk around straight from the hotel, very convenient)
-- there is quite broad road between the hotel and the sea, however can't say how noisy it is because our room faced the yard
5. Price & Value
Good hotels in Mumbai are expensive, especially in the center.
From all mid-level hotels located in the south Mumbai (where all the sights are) this one was the cheapest.
If compared to an ordinary European hotel Sea Palace Hotel is generally old, not very clean and not nice at all. But after a week of traveling through inner regions of India we really enjoyed hot shower, blankets and eggs in the morning. I doubt we could find something significantly better for the same price.
