“recommended to the guests who don't have long stay and want accommodation for catching connected flights from Mumbai”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Recently I stayed two times at Hotel Columbus in Standard Deluxe room and I found it OK for short duration of stay. Following are my main observations.
Positives:
- Very close to Mumbai Domestic and International airport, It is a big plus for connected flight users.
- Free airport pick up and drop 24x7 for guests on request.
- Friendly and transparent hotel staff.
- Clean rooms.
- Forex service is available at front desk. Rates you can negotiate.
- Cab service can be arranged through front desk too.
- It has restaurant. Rates are costly but, service is prompt. I did not get chance to test food. But, I ordered tea and quality as well as quantity was good.
- Vile Parle local train station is at just walkable distance.
- Free wifi internet voucher.

Negatives:
- Standard deluxe rooms are bit small.
- No complementary drinking water bottles.
- Rates are high but, it might be because it is so close to domestic as well as international airports.

Overall, it is recommended to the guests who don't have long stay and want accommodation for catching connected flights from Mumbai(domestic or international) without expectations of luxury.

Wife and I just spent 1 night in this hotel. The reason being we had an early morning flight and wanted to be close by. That's the positive. Now, the negative. Took forever to check in. Rooms are small, dingy, moldy and dirty and how can we forget, roach infested. The evening clerk insists on being tipped for no services rendered. In all honesty, this place is a dump. Overpriced and poorly maintained. Stay if u must, if only to be close to the airport.

We were looking for a relatively good hotel near the airport: check.

It is very clean, the rooms are modern, there is one restaurant inside which is a bit pricy though..
The service is good from what I have experienced. Free taxi to the airport.

This hotel is ok, it seems so expensive compared to the rest of India but I gather that is how it is in Mumbai. There didn't seem to be too much nearby food-wise, except for a Dominos pizza, and whenever I asked for a recommendation, the front desk would only suggest I order room service, which we didn't really want after spending so much time in our room with 2am wake up due to being jetlagged from recent arrival from Canada. The other thing that really annoyed me was the fact that I told them I was having trouble connecting to the Internet and no one ever volunteered the fact that you needed a password, which I had to pay for- I had thought wifi was included. Oh well. W are returning for 2 nights again on our way home and they gave us a free shuttle to the airport and put a bag in a locker to pick up on our way home again.

We stayed in this hotel because I had a wedding ceremony to attend nearby. Location of the hotel is good if you are a domestic airline traveler and want to sleep a night while waiting for next flight.
Price from the transit hotel point of view is high but otherwise fine.
What I liked was that it had a small compound of itself with a 24 hour security. I could park the car without any anxiety. That's a luxury for hotels in Mumbai.
Room was normally clean but not sufficiently so for my comfort. Did not find it so bad as to complain.
People who were providing service were friendly and smiling. Management was very stiff in approach about allowing driver to sleep under their roof (He had to sleep in the car), I hope they show some flexibility in this regard.
Air-conditioner was old and made a lot of noise.
We did not have food other than breakfast. Food was quite oily from my point of view but not bad in taste.
I am unlikely to stay again in this hotel.

This was out last stay in india, and after having had quite some bad surprises concerning hotels, we found this nice place really friendly, tidy and well located near the airport. We booked over makemytrip and got a fair discount. We payed like 1200 rps the night. They even organised an airport pickup service free of charge for us, but unfornutely we didnt know about it in the first place so we missed the driver ..:-) the receptionist is really friendly and he organised the transport to the international terminal at 4 am in the morning - again free of charge!! Thank you for the great stay!

Hotel is located in Vile parle east which is very close to airport, may be a 5 min walk. To find a good room with a limited budget is tough on mumbai. Considering that, the hotel room is comparatively good and they provide excellent service. The most exciting is that, one could have great Indian and Chinese cuisine from their restaurant called Siachin...awesone food....
They keep the corridors and rooms clean. The hotel is a bit old. Their rooms & bathrooms are not modern. They should refurbish it.

The place it is located is quite good. Its in a residential area. But not far from any of our convenience. Cud get a auto or taxi easily. Bombay exhibition center is 5kms from there. But without much traffic we could go to exhibition center, if we take highway....
