On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly receptionist who poured us some lovely Masala Tea while we checked in. The manager then explained to us everything we needed to know about our room and the area. They also were very helpful in arranging transfers and as we had an early checkout in two days time they said they would make us a breakfast box.
The hotel design is very quirky and streamlined at the same time. The beds are extremely comfortable. We had an affordable room which had a lovely shower and sink room but no toilet. This was not a problem as the shared bathroom was close by with three spotlessly clean cubicles. The information guides in the room were extremely informative. Features include being given your own mobile with Indian sim card and credit. This meant you could make any outside calls you needed and also call the hotel on speed dial either from your room or when out and about.
The hotel has a welcoming reception area with a cafe where you can order food throughout the day and also where a varied delicious breakfast is served. The hotel has a booklet of tours that they offer which described them well. We found these personally out of our price range but the reception were not pushy about their tours preferring the guest to do what they want to do with their time but are extremley helpful when you ask for help.
The hotel located in Colaba extremely close to the gateway of India and in walking distance to lots of restaurants, attractions.
All three receptionists we met were extremely competent and a credit to the hotel. This hotel is definetly the best value for money in Mumbai, would highly recommend.
