Good hotel close to Gateway of IndiaPosted 07-Oct-2013
Cons: WIFI access at restaurant and room#118 didn't work
Hotel is close to Colaba market and shopping area - all in walkable distance. Also very close to multiple attractions like Gateway of India, Jehangir Art Galerry, Museum, Fashion Street, Churchgate. Foof of great taste at inhouse Restaurant - Indus.

Diplomat Hotel in Colaba, MumbaiPosted 19-Dec-2012
Cons: old and run down
Location: On backside of Taj Hotel and across street form Starbucks, and naer Gateway to India.
The first room I was shown was in dreadful condition. Since i had requested a double bed I was given what must have been their only room with a double bed. It was in a dark corner and the paint on the walls was bubbled and ready to be peeled off. It smelled of mold and was so horrible I could not wait there while the bellman checked on another room. Got to that room, and it was not made up. I was finally shown an acceptable room. So, why was I first shown such a horrible room to begin with is my question? Other than this, my stay was comfortble.

The room was a wreck, the tv did not work, the d]bed was uncomfortable. As I told the desk I would not order room service as i was embarrassed to have a waiter come to the room. The location for shopping "antiques" is ideal. And you can always go over to the neighbor Taj for a break. The hotel breakfast was nice.

Would stay againPosted 30-Nov-2012
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff
Cons: no negative
Location: Great location within walking distance to many sights and also walk to good restaurants
Was a bit apprehensive about staying here because of some of the reviews but very pleasantly surprised on viewing our room. A good sized clean room with shower over bath so not slopping around in water (as is the case in many bathrooms in India). Great window view of the Taj hotel across the road.. Great location. Great helpful friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Great locationPosted 19-Nov-2012
Pros: The location
Decent hotel no complaints; good buffet breakfast included in price. The location is brilliant right behind the TAJ which makes it well worth the money. Better then expected as this was one of the cheaper options in Mumbai on the Expedia website.

I think that the hotel should maintain the building and the lift otherwise it is good to stay over there. The rooms are clean, hot water available in rooms all the time.

Pretty well situated and a good hotelPosted 10-Nov-2012
Pros: Good staff
Cons: Old A/c
Location: great location, a few minutes away from Gateway of India and just behind the famous Taj Hotel.
A good hotel both for business and family travellers. Excellent location to the Gateway of India, just 2 minutes walk not more than a 100 metres. Just behind the Taj, so very simple to locate. For Mumbai standards the room was very good, spacious bathroom which is also not very common in most Mumbai hotels. Did not try the buffet breakfast though.
