“Good location and nice service”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The hotel is in a nice location, walkable from churchgate station and marine drive; convenient for tourists. The rooms are well maintained and the service was good. The breakfast was good with choices of Indian and few western dishes. The tariff was reasonable considering the location. Having dinner at the top revolving restaurant is a nice experience.
This hotels is one of my preferred options whenever I travel to the churchgate area on business. There are quite a few corporate offices in this location and you have the luxury to stroll or jog in the marine drive during morning / evening hours.

Limitations are that the furniture and indoors of the rooms are very old. The internet services were bit expensive. These doesn't make me not to opt this hotel as the hotel is a nice choice considering the other aspects.

I was bit skeptical when I read reviews about the run-down state of rooms. But recently, they have updated few rooms and I requested for one of them. The room was excellent, clean, new paint and new furniture. Bathroom was clean. The breakfast was excellent and so was the lunch buffet. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is 2 mins walk from sea face, 10 min cab drive from railway station, 15 min from Gateway of India and about an hour from international airport. There are few opportunities for improvement such as turning off the alarm clock (our alarm clock went off at 3:00AM), hot water problem (which was resolved immediately) and list of phone numbers (desk, room service etc.)

This hotel is affordable and if compared with other hotels in this area provides high value for money.

Plus point is the excellent location and good staff. Negative is the run-down state of the rooms. The rooms need new furniture and carpets. Infact the rooms smell a bit musty too. Once upon a time this property had great food at their revolving restaurant and was very buzzy. Unfortunately it needs a real clean-up now. Hope the owners do wake up as the property still has a great potential.

We stayed at this place for 6 nights.

The location is simply the best. You just walk out of the hotel and get to Marine drive - the best sea facing promenade in India - ideal for those outdoor breaks you look forward to.Walking on marine drive is simply the most refreshing activity you can do.

Breakfast is well laid out although if you stay for 6 nights as we did, it gets repetitive.

The cake shop at the hotel is good and has some good "vegetarian egg-less" as well as the standard options.

Our room was spacious. The carpets looked really in need of some serious cleanup. They were not dirty but looked like they needed replacement and had outlived their useful life.

We had an an issue with our reservations - which was avoidable. Coordination between the staff seemed to be missing. We had asked for our stay to be extended by a day with the person the evening before. He had confirmed the same. However in retrospect it looked like the same had not been communicated to the reservations and as a result we had to check out the next day as they had other bookings.
