Thanks for a look !
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 (email hidden), 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
It was an adventure being hosted by jitin
We arrived at the hotel met by surly staff. Waited and waited our room was double booked. Taken by sidhu a nice guy to another hotel which was filthy and said they only accepted Indian men. So left in McDonalds (of all places - just what you come to India to do!). And waited some more. Thinking that we'd been forgotten two cups of coffee later at this stage I would have slept standing. Sent husband round to 1st hotel to find out what the story was. Sidhu returned and took us to a 1st class lovely clean hotel. Next day we were moved to another great hotel. So a bad start but I have to say jitin was in constant communication with his guys and us and came up trumps. Thanks Jitin
Jitin was kind and hellpful ,his place was so near evrything ,
that was not so clean and not realy bathroom and shower
but its good for few days and price is good too
i came to the hotel with my boyfriend and we had a great time! Jitin is a great person, funny and very helpful. You can ask for anything and he will always help! the room we stayed in was basic but clean and totally worth the price in an expensive city like mumbai.
you should print out a map with the location of the hotel, thogh, so taxi drivers will find it.
thanks jitin, for a great time in mumbai!
