“Great Location”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

We stayed for four nights in early February 2012

While not the best hotel they were helpful in organizing a late night pick up at CST airport and were helpful and efficient when we checked in at 3:30am absolutely shattered after our flights.

The room itself was fairly plan but the beds were comfortable and we were on the top floor far above the noise of the street below. We were in a twin room with two small beds with a seating area by the window that looked out towards the city. The sheets were clean and fresh The bathroom was a little worn out but it was okay just needed a bit of an update possibly. Wifi worked for us and was a great benefit when trying to phone home.

We did get laundry done which wasn't the best idea as our clothes came back pretty battered and it was pretty pricey.

Breakfast was a varying menu each morning some mornings Idli and Sambar some mornings, omelets and other things the next along with western things with things like fried chicken etc. Also Cereal and milk and the like. The tea was hot and the refills plenty.

The staff were all very helpful with the exception of one lady on the front desk as we checked out. I inquired whether they could book me in for my last night in India at their Suba International hotel near the airport and was promptly handed a flyer and told to ring myself which I thought was little rude.

The location of this hotel is really good. Literally 90 seconds walk to the gateway of India. Around the corner are Cafe Leopold and Cafe Mondegas on the Colaba Causeway. which were okay and on the other side of the same block is a great kebab place whose name escapes me (Bademiya I think).

In short it was good if not world beating. Unsure of the review below - they seemed to have the opposite of the experience we had for the most part.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms on the upper floors - when Mumbai wakes up it really wakes up....

We were booked in to stay at Suba Palace in Feb 2012. It had been described in our guide book as a boutique hotel.....Not so. But that said the location is very good. V close to the Gateway of India. We arrived early and met the night time receptionist. A rude unhelpful man. He was not correct in his understanding of our booking. Though he did eventually check and grumpily agreed we were to book in early. He was very rude to another guest who only wanted an early cup of coffee - the staff were setting up breakfast and the coffee was ready but it was not the correct time so no coffee for that man. The day shift receptionist took over and did her best to ignore us for over 20 mins until I spoke to her. She was curt and dismissive. We then were taken to our room. It was supposed to be delux. it was not. English 3 star at the very most. The hotel flashing neon sign was right outside our window. The air conditioning unit leaked water - quite a lot. No towels. There was black mould growing in the shower, on all the bathroom walls and all round the sink. The bathroom really was revolting. I asked for towels which were reluctantly provided. So we went and booked somewhere else. Not a Boutique Hotel.

Room Tip: No tips as we did not actually stay the night it was too awful

after a very long trip to india we arrived late to this hotel. Check in was well done efficient and room proved to be clean spacious and well appointed. Considering it's downtown location it was very quiet at dark. Location was tremdous to see the sites as it is just up the road from India gate and the Taj hotel. Would recommend this to anyone visiting the fort in Bombay.

Room Tip: 2nd floor seemed to have the housekeeping services and the biys were less than quiet middle of the n...

The hotel arranged a late night airport pick up. The man was there waiting for us (amongst the crowds!!), & he was very nice.
The hotel room had decent hot water & view outside window of the street which was interesting at times.
Hotel had good wifi.
Buffet breakfast was good also(although small). A mix of Indian & western.
Great location.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days at the beginning of our trip and then 1 day at the end. Whilst the area (the main tourist section of Mumbai) can be overwhelming, the hotel is a very calming and soothing place. The staff are friendly, and were happy to make recommendations for food or things to see. The rooms were clean, spacious, and had all the mod cons- a/c, large telly, safe etc. Breakfast was really good, fresh food being replenished and staff to help you get you tea and toast to order, or help you determine what it was you were eating (although there are continental breakfast options the curry options were better).

The location is brilliant, just a 5 min walk in one direction to the Gateway of India/ Taj Hotel and the Prince of Wales Museum in the other.

I can recommend the lamb chops at Ali Baba restaurant, on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Marg and a wander around will bring you to a couple of western bars.

Overall a great place to stay.

This is a "boutique" type of hotel - friendly doorman (and good security) at the street, friendly elevator operator, and friendly reception attendants. I stayed here over New Years 2011 and it doesnt get better than this for location and value. It is one block from the Gateway of India, directly behind the Taj Mahal Hotel (the most expensive in all of India) and walking distance to great restaurants, shopping, and museums. The breakfast room was bright and spotless, and the breakfast buffet offered anything you could think of for either a Western or Indian breakfast. I liked the mix of Indian and Western guests. This hotel is a winner!

Room Tip: They all seemed good. My room was right off the reception area - but it couldnt have been quieter.

Decent, clean rooms, tasty breakfast and very helpful and friendly staff. Great location, close to the taj hotel and the gateway to india too. Make sure you make the short trip to khyber palace for one of your meals - great food there.
