I first discovered the Lawrence hotel in the 80s and then again in the 90s.
So I will go back again to the same. You have to be flexible and cut out the crap of looks because when you get your room it is clean tidy and so close to the heart of this great city

Room Tip: no choice. you get what is available

This place is a total bargain for its location! Close to some great cafes and shops in a nice area of Mumbai. The couple who run it are LOVELY.
It's quite hard to find and you have to go up a very poorly-lit staircase - if you're travelling alone maybe try not to arrive late at night because while the people chilling in the stairwell seem to be minding their own business it does give you a bit of a fright!
My room didn't have a powerpoint but the owners were more than happy to let me charge my phone, camera, etc. in reception and they looked after it.
The bathrooms are shared.

Thankfully most taxi/auto drivers know where this is, as it's hard to find. Great location once you're there if you're interested in exploring the Colaba and Churchgate areas. No power points in the rooms is a huge loss though when you need to charge things. Michael lets you charge things in the office though. Definitely not a luxury hotel!

This is the second time we have stayed at Hotel Lawrence, the location is absolutely perfect. Tucked in a quite side street just 10 minutes walk to the gate of India it really is an amazing location for just 1000inr a night. it is difficult to find so Google the hotels phone number and have the address with you for the taxis. The rooms are very clean, bright and airy with very high ceilings. The owner is incredibly helpful and kind, he is very knowledgable regarding all of Mumbai and can direct you to some cheap eateries close by. Shared bathrooms are kept clean and there's 4 shared bathrooms with hot water. Slight annoyance not having plug sockets in the room but you can charge your devices in the lobby or in the office which is religiously kept locked if the owner isn't in there so your belongings are kept safe. Don't be put off by the dark and dingy staircase as upstairs is a haven in Mumbai !

The price for this location is a bargain (1000 rupiahs for a double). But don't expect to get luxury here: there are homeless people sleeping in the staircase, the shared toilets are very difficult to flush and the floor in the shared bathrooms are almost always dirty. The beds are hard but there's surprisingly little noise here. You charge the telephone in the office because there are no power outlets in the room. The owners are very friendly.
