Comfortable. The hotel was good for a short stay.

Cleanliness. Good room service. Welcoming
Very noisy at night, could hear noises from other guests and staff which disturbed our sleep. Pleasant and comfortable for short stays in Mumbai

Older than the photographs

OK. My main complaint is that photographs and descriptions are way out of date,so that the hotel is a little worn to say the least.

Great location - but very poor facilities. 1 star

Location is good - management very old fashioned in every respect. If I had friends visit they would ask what time they are leaving etc. not good
Good location only

close to attractions

close to attractions, decent food, close to shopping
The hotel is situated close to Gateway to India, Leopold Café and is opposite the sea. The room service was excellent. The hotel could do with a lick of paint but in general it was comfortable. Wifi is purchased through wifonic at 100 rupees an hour.

It was worst. The hotel lost my booking documents.

No best thing. Staffs were very inefficient. In fact no gentle man should stay there.
Horrible.On arrival attending desk personal became pussled as they were having no information, because they lost the booking documents. When I shown my paper they were hassitating. I had to wait for two hours along with my family at late evening after long journey. Ultimately they arranged two rooms in different floor probably of inferior quality.

good attitude
the hotel is basic - clean and located not far from The Gate of India. What i particularly liked about this hotel is the helpful and polite staff.

3 day stopover for quick look at Mumbai

location cost comfortable bed
Favourable, though the middle night people on my floor were very noisy, slamming doors and loud talking till 1am. Nothing was done to stop these thoughtless actions.

Bad service, bad attitude.

The attitude of the front desk staff is terrible. I had sent several requests asking them to change from double to single occupancy. The day I showed up, they claimed to have never received those emails. Finally they agreed to charge for single occupancy only. Then never did. When checking out the attendant asked me to pay for a room I had already paid for. Then he proceeded to spend 5 minutes digging through his files, couldn't find the record, and asked ME to procure proof of payment, all while I needed to leave to catch a flight at the airport. There's no wifi in the rooms - only in the lobby. The rooms are decrepit and smell of cockroaches. It is a good area to stay in, however. There are lots of small hotels in the immediate area that have got to be better value for the money.
