We stayed for 4 nights here and you can't get much better a location for this price. 700 rupees got us a double but you had two switches, one for the light and the other for the fan. The beds were clean enough, and with mattress protectors, but this is India of course so don't expect daz shine! The man... More

I really like hotel Lawrence, easy walk to Colaba causeway/gateway of India, but set back far enough to keep it reasonably quiet.They do have issues with the water supply sometimes but so does the rest of Mumbai. The rooms are large and airy with big netted windows, no ensuite, so communal bathrooms. There is no electric socket in the rooms,... More

At first glance the manager seems friendly, the place is basic but ok... in reality it was a nightmare. I stayed in the room 1 night with no real problem but after seeing the review here I decided to check for bed bugs... and that is when I found one on my arm... there was no way I could sleep...

Budget accommodation is thin on the ground in Mumbai, so we booked ahead via the telephone at the Hotel Lawrence. We arrived at 09:00 am and were pleasantly surprised to be shown to our room straight away. The location is unbeatable, on a quiet street in the Fort area within easy walking distance of all the sights. The rooms were... More

The staff were lovely. The room and shower/toilets were clean. Breakfast is included which is good but it does eman you are woken up at 8am whether you are hungry or not! Really downsides are: It is up four flights of stairs, and at night people sleep on the stairs, but there is a tiny lift if you want to... More

My wife and I felt very welcome. Very clean. Shared Bathrooms. No A/C, fan only. You can only book over the phone which is a pain if your time zone is a lot different. It has got a great location but good luck getting a taxi driver to drop you off at the right place. I took lots of pictures... More

Mumbai/Bombay is one of the most expensive places to stay in all of India, so this was a nice find. I paid 700 Rupees for a room with a fan, which is amazingly high compared to other parts of India, but it's pretty good for Mumbai. The hotel/hostel is hard to find the first time because it's down a bit... More

We first arrived in India, and no matter how prepared we were, it was still a culture shock. So glad we found Hotel Lawrence on Trip Advisor and booked beforehand!

I found it quite hard to find affordable accomodation in a central location in Mumbai but thank God I came across Hotel Lawrence! I would have easily paid more that 500rupees for this hostel. Room was spotless. Fan in the room. Clean (shared) bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff. And substantial breakfast. I would definitely stay here again if I were... More
