Nice budget hotel at a convenient locationPosted May 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
Comfortable stay at a good value for money. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was good. The location near to the business areas of Nariman Point and Cuffe Parade. Overall quite happy with the choice.

Pros: excellent lighting and showers
Cons: cramped rooms, but good for India
Location: excellent location and amenities nearby
Thoroughly updated and modern, albeit small dimensions, this hotel is an oasis in chaotic Mumbai. Everything works, and reliably high quality.

Comfort at the ShalimarPosted Feb 27, 2012
Location: Excelletn for sightseeing.
I stayed at the Shalimar because of its proximity to points of interest which I wanted to see in Mumbai e.g. Ghandi House; Hanging Gardens; Jain Temple. All were within walking distance which provided me with a street experience. The hotel and its staff were welcoming and I found my single room to be just fine as I was out most of the day sightseeing. I did eat at the hotel and again the restaurant food was good and its staff were very helpful.

Nice little hotelPosted Jan 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Plenty of shopping near by, Colaba about a 30 minute (cheap) cab ride. Room was a little dated and musty but acceptable. The staff was very friendly (better than the other hotel that I stayed at in Mumbai).

Shalimar near ChristmasPosted Dec 30, 2011 on Hotels.com
Spent 6 nights here prior to Christmas. Old hotel but still has good things about it. Rooms clean and comfortable, no bugs etc. Staff very very nice and obliging. Breakfast very good lovely buffet choice. For the price well recommended.

Good location, safe and cleanPosted May 2, 2011
This is good value in an overpriced city - clean, safe and in a great very central location in South Mumbai. I stayed here twelve days and had a very good experience with the staff of this hotel - very polite, diligent and caring. The security guards take their job very seriously, the cleaning staff are meticulous, and Manoj in the "Bakerie" is always smiling, efficient and professional. Be prepared to be frisked and for your bags to be checked each time you enter the hotel, even after a short walk down the street. Weaknesses: the 'business centre' consists of one computer with a slow internet connection and a printer for which you have to pay $1 per page. You have to ask the reception to get a security guard to open it for you and then call to close up. The 'fitness centre' is a glorified broom closet with an ancient treadmill, a set of unused weights, and a TV and boombox stuffed away at the back of the room. Don't expect to get much exercise here. The rooms are fairly well designed - my 'Zen' room made good use of a small space. However, small details like a bathtub lip that stuck up above the rest of the fixture meant overflowing floors after every shower. My air conditioner was noisy but worked - a blessing in this hot and humid city. Small things... But for the things that really matter - convenient location, safety and cleanness - this hotel does well.
