Stayed for one night at this place, the lobby and dining area is not bad, however the rooms were average, service was good helpful staff, over all an average experience, the best thing about this hotel is location which is next to western gate of Taj.

This place was alright and even better than that when you take in the price. It is true that you pay for what you get.

Returning at Villas they were surprised I did return and after calling...
