Beside the excellent views that Matheran has to offer the Royal Hotel was at first impression very disappointing. The plaster on the ceiling and walls was coming off and the bed was damp and the rooms were very old. Swimming pool is slightly bigger than a bath tub! I realized later that I got a bad deal since I booked it using travelvacanza.com which cheated me and priced the room for 1000 Rs. more. My advice: never use travel vacanza to book any hotel. Book this hotel directly.
The upside of the hotel was food. It was excellent and my friends decided not to eat outside food as we would miss great food in our hotel. It's a nice budget hotel and they are getting new rooms renovated. I would definitely stay here again.
