This hotel is certainly over priced for what it is, however we have no faults with our stay. Location is excellent. It is on the same road as the famous Taj Mahal Palace hotel and is in view of the Gateway of India and is on the sea/harbour front, so if you have the front bedrooms, the view is fantastic....

I was slightly disappointed. Simple things were missing that should be basics in any hotel. We were told that only 1 towel per room is given. Tea is not served in the room, we need to go to the dining hall for tea. Food was decent, served buffet style in the dining hall.

On arrival the manger at front desk was very grumpy and unpleasant despite us already having a booking online. Room was clean enough but for the price of the room (around Rs.3500/night) it could have been much cleaner. Our shower head had 4 streams coming out of it which i had to fix with a pin. The basin tap would...

It is a wonderful location to stay at Mumbai, and considering the rates it is not so costly too. ....You are staying a look away from The Taj mahal and Gate way of India. Facilities are vintage and probably the maintenance is just for sustenance. Services are hardly any to offer than the dire necessities. But of course it is...

We switched from the Apollo Hotel 2 streets down the road to the Strand Hotel. It was better priced then the Apollo Hotel and we had a far better view accross the sea. Staff was decent and we did not have problems with asking for tips etc. Trust me, in the whole of North India they demand tips and money...

Staying at the Strand was the worst decision I made in Mumbai. The man at the reception desk was the most smarmy looking I’ve ever seen and he told me that the price of over 4000 rupees per night (excluding breakfast) included wi-fi. I later found out after checking in that their wi-fi had not worked in months!) The room...

After staying in some nice hotels in other parts of India, some cheaper than the Strand, we got a bit of a surprise at just how unclean and unkempt a hotel charging approx. 100 USD a night can be!! All the previous foreign based reviews (hint) are accurate- the staff must be underpaid, even by Indian standards, they always had...

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...

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...
