Imagine walking what seems like miles down a curved corridor before you get to your room. I have booked it through a travel site and have been assured that my request for a smoking room has been passed along. The receptionist informs me that rooms are non-smoking but that I can smoke in the balcony attached to the room, which is fine with me. The room is well appointed if a 1970s disco-ish feel is what you favour. The balcony, which hasn't been cleaned very well, overlooks a giant-sized atrium. You also realise that using it to smoke brings you into view of every guest in the hotel and every visitor to the restaurant in the atrium, which can be a little disconcerting. Service is abominably erratic and it seems to take hours and a couple of reminders before something as basic as a match box is delivered. The bathroom is well fitted, although the lighting could be improved. Overall this has been a disappointing stay.

Room Tip: Now this is a tough one!

Sahara Star is one hotel which never disappoints.
It's location, a 5 minute drive to the domestic airport and easy access to highways that take you to every destination in the city.
The restaurants, you're spoilt for choice here! Cuisine's to suit every palate, be it Pan-Asian, Indian, Mediterranean, Northwest Frontier, and more. They even have a Wine Bar and a Discotheque.
The Spa is a must try too.
The rooms are well done up, comfortable and neat.
Hygiene is given top priority here.
The entire staff is well-groomed, alert, warm and efficient.
It is always a pleasure visiting Sahara Star.

The lighting in the barroom is little low.
Also the carpet through the passageway can be replaced with some tiles or so.
The plants inside to be washed somehow as lot of dust could be seen on the tree leaves.
The balcony is an excellent place.

we stayed with friends and booked 4 rooms on transit. The booking was made by my friend and wasn't sure initially what to expect , specially since it was initially called Airport Centaur before the Sahara group took over the management of this hotel.
The Hotel is lovely, and rooms were large and very well kept. there is a bit of maintenance work going on as the entire hotel work is not yet complete, but i am sure that once it is done, this hotel will be a force to recon with. we arrived at the Hotel late at night and were too tired to step out the next morning for breakfast, but the reception staff organised the complimentary breakfast to be served in our rooms which was fantastic !!
a special mention to the room service, we were highly impressed when we received a call to inquire about the breakfast served .
would definitely visit this hotel again when in Mumbai !!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed good !!

Have stayed in other hotels in the area, but decided to stay due to late flight in and out from the domestic airport. Free shuttle take no longer than 5 minutes.
Check-in straight forward and rooms are good size, nice and homely and clean with everything needed.
price was a little on the steep side, I have stayed at other 5 star hotels in the area and achieved a better rate.
downside is if your on the opposite side of the hotel to the elevator as it can be a loooong walk.
all in all 9/10. very good.
