This is a terrible hotel. I'll kill the guy that wrote this is a good hotel! Rooms stinks. The minute you get in the room you just want to leave it again. Dining room - did they have a dining room? I would not have cared to go there! No internet at hotel. It is clean ok, but just wearn down and rooms just stinks. Do not stay here!

I have stayed at this hotel a fair amount of times since I know the owners of the hotel personally. All I can say is they arent the BEST hotels in India, but they certianaly not the worst. The rooms provide a cozy enviroment (depending on what floats your boat), and the best are decent for the star class of the hotel.

I think my heading says it all: basically having tried a few places in Mumbai this hotel trumps them all on quality of service.
you know it is a place where you get a really high standard of service - just like a Marriott or Hilton - but without the phoney atmosphere of those big hotels.
The location is just amazing. Really. So close to the centre. You can walk to Chowpatty. You can walk down to the famous electrical shop area called Grant Road. The central station for local trains is along the street. Also, i have to mention it, but about 50 metres from the door of this hotel is a shopping centre with some places to get western coffee - which I need!
The restaurant is open 24 hours a day, for guests only. Again, no complaints.
Save your time looking at other places, seriously. It cost about 4500 rupees a night, and if you book more than 4 nights ask for an upgrade. they will give you it if they can. That is the kind of hotel this is. But book ahead as i noticed they get busy.
Just call, tell them when you will arrive and they will sort the room (even if they sound like they didn't understand - they did!!!!) - Truely feel i found a hidden gem.
