Attractions and distance
Our place stands next to huge market at Fort area which is nearby Colaba, Colaba and Fort area are both adjacent to each other, it takes 10 minutes by walk or 5 minutes by Taxi to reach Colaba main area,the best thing about Fort area is,it have more hotels, restaurants and bar then Colaba and also the market for local people,in Colaba the market is like tourist market.
The Mac Donalds,Pizza hut,Barista,Cafe coffee day,bars,Nightclubs ,nice and cheap restaurants,Multiplex ,Main Railway station they all are just opposite to Hotel Sheel.
So don`t worry about location,its at one of the finest location of Mumbai which is nearby from all main tourist attraction of Mumbai, and also its behind one building after main road, so it`s not noisy at all.

This is a good place to stay for one night. Good value for money, especially in this area. Perfect location. If you take a taxi to Colaba, it will be cost approximately only 1$. But fairly there are very ascetic conditions. Anyway, it can be extremely budget offer.
Great thanks to Jitin. He is very helpful, charming and nice person. And he made our staying comfortable.
We would stay there on our way again.
The room is part of a hotel in a great, crowded part of Mumbai. The hotel is definitely aged, and the room nothing pretty, but it has a fan and a light and two beds and isn't terrible for the price (though comparable rooms can definitely be had in person for cheaper). One big caveat is that this isn't really a private room: the top foot or so of wall on three sides is just a grill, so you can hear the snores and whispers of your neighbors, and see when they turn on their light. Overall, I'd recommend in a pinch, but can't say it's worth booking if there are other options you're leaning toward. (Finally, keep in mind that most of Mumbai hotels don't use AirBnB, and you'll get cheaper prices if you book through other means there.)
La chambre correspond parfaitement très bien à un budget low-cost. La salle de bains est séparée, les draps sont humides, mais n'oubliez pas que nous sommes en Inde ;)
Le plus gros avantage, c'est sa proximité immédiate avec la station de train CST qui nous amène partout sur Mumbai
This room is hardcore (mice, dirty sheets, cold bucket of water to wash with) but it is in a great location, and Jitin is quite friendly. Probably not suitable for women.
Dear Matthew,the room which was given to you was just repaired and due to rainy season we decided to paint later,But that room was with window and spacious room which was specially kept for you that you haven't mentioned and you have used free WiFi that also you haven`t mentioned,the hot water is always available for that you need to plug on the geyser.
Thanks for the one sided review.
I didn't have the opportunity to meet Jitin in person but he answered to all my messages pretty quickly and was open for splitting my stay in half, after I decided to visit other places in India.
The rooms are located at the Sheel hotel near Colaba. Mine and all the others on the first floor I saw didn't look exactly as new and clean as on the images provided. The bedsheets looked like they have seen better times, there were hairs and trash under the beds and after two nights I discovered both beds in my room were infestated with bed bugs which I later found crawling around in my luggage. Not a very motivating find if you just started your vacation. Jitin accepted to refund me for the rest of my stay and promised to look into the problem.
I was prepared to stay at a very basic place but one thing that really turned me off was that the water was turned off at night and only turned on only after around 9AM. I used to wake up very early and always felt trapped in the hotel because I couldn't take a shower or even brush my teeth. If I had known this, I wouldn't have booked this place even for a fiver.
If you are a hardcore backpacker on a tight budget who likes to sleep into noon this place might be for you if not you will find much nicer places in a similar price range scattered all over Mumbai.
The location is really good though. You can walk to all the sights in Colaba and have a lot of shops, pharmacies and restaurants around. I can recommend the Cannon food stall opposite the CST for a damn fine Pav Bhaji.
The hotel is in a great location for visiting Mumbai, being only a stones throw from the central train station. Jitin was a good host, he has a wealth of knowledge about the city and it is worth speaking to him about your plans whilst you are there as he will help you as best he can .
It is a great option for a budget visit to the city, the rooms are simple but clean and plenty of room. the shared bathroom facilities were also ok, bear in mind there is no shower just bucket washing, hot water is also provided. WiFi is also provided in the entry lobby (by Jitin not the hotel) its a good and fast reliable connection.
Many thanks and look forward to seeing you again when I come back to Mumbai
