They really looked after us here and we needed it after travelling from Goa, 13 hours on the overnight train. They managed to find us a room before the normal...

I highly recommend this hotel because of its location. Just 250 meters from Gateway and very close to important landmarks in the city. The hotel and the room itself was clean. I expected a double bed bit I got 2 separate beds. They were kind enough to provide a separate bed for my son. The breakfast os served in a...

Stayed at this hotel recently..the location of the hotel was awesome...very close to the Gateway of India. However once you enter into the hotel all this excitement will fade away. Conjusted rooms, Irritating elevator and most importantly rude front office people. Charged me for a Premium room but gave me a very small room, hardly any space to move inside....
