Yes that is one word I would used as title for this hotel. I was attracted to it by the location and decide to stay one night there. I had to pay upfront and the lady boss give me a receipt, not realising that I have to return the receipt when I checked out. I was given a room right... More

There is an element of "you get what you pay for" with this hotel. This hotel is cheaper than a lot in mumbai and our room was reasonably clean but in need of a lot of TLC, but overall would have been acceptable for a budget hotel. The staff however are awful. The reception is very disorganised and as we... More

This is a really terrible hotel. The service is awful, the reception is rude, some of the rooms really smell and quite frankly, if you can afford to spend a little more, go elsewhere. This hotel is terrible even for third world standards...

The Hotel doesn't offer much, like Wi-Fi or an automatic elevator or a high class toilet but then its value for money. The room tariff are low and would suit every pocket. Rooms are generally available and staff is very co-operative. I neded there help to get some food from outside after mid-night and they were happy to help. Its... More

I read about the hotel in the Rough Guide, and they actually recommended it. But I did absolutely NOT have a good experience. Our room was small and the beds were made for midgets.

We arrived late in the evening to this hotel and got a room without window. Bed was hard, linen full with stains and the room was smelling very strongly of smoke.
