This was my first booking with this type of hotel as the experience at the hotel was not good.1) There was no separate hot-cold water line for rooms only very hot or cold water was available at any point of time.
2) A kind of picture they have show in website of those room & comparing to physical room was completely different.
3) A reception attendant used a very wrong way of communication with me.

It was not a hotel i would recommend anyone to stay in . No courtesy was extended to us at the reception. Room service too lacked sincereity. Had to call waiter several times to pass the order. The man ,receiving calls in canteen ,had very rude voice .
PILLAPPAN from AHMEDABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 19 Nov 2008
The hotel was neatly maintained and a good budget hotel to be in south mumbai.
-It is located near the Mumbai CST station and just next to the naval dockyard. If you are lucky you will get a room overlooking the dockyard operations and the sea.
The staff was professional and helpful and ensured that my stay there was comfortable.
- I landed in mumbai at odd hour, 7 am in the morning, but the management allowed me to check in by 8 am without charging me any extra charges for my checkin before 12 noon a nice gesture on their part.
The room was simple and clean and offered a very pleasant stay. There was no disturbance for traffic noise or any other disturbances. One could have a peaceful night sleep after a hard days work.
- the room service was reasonably priced, had a variety of veg and non veg offerings. However, the alcoholic drinks were missing from their menu, which was sort of compensated by a wine shop just outside the hotel.
- Bathrooms were really really big compared to the size of the room.
PRASHANTH from HYDERABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 29 Sep 2008
The charges were quite reasonable as per the standard of the property. Room was spacious and service was efficient. Location was not so convenient but I was happy with their management. I will definitely prefer to stay here again.
MR NEERAJ from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 18 Sep 2008
Decent hotel with convenient location and quite reasonable is well in a city like Mumbai. Service was sharp and room quality was well up to the standard. I didn't taken any meal but I was satisfied with the overall experience.
NEERAJ from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 14 Sep 2008
Infrastructure was really poor. I had a real tough time in reaching the hotel. Even the hotel room was not satisfactory. I found it completely below standard. Apart from that food facility and service was fair enough.
VIKAS from BENGALOORU(BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 05 Sep 2008
The first thing that strikes you as you enter the hotel is the fact that the guy sitting at the reception appears disinterested and curt. Not the best note to start things off. Next, housekeeping didn't believe in taking orders on paper. One had to repeat the order 4 times and still one of the ordered dishes didn't turn up. Service time and quality of food is fine though. My standard A/C room didn't have any windows. Consequently, the room had a dank and musty odor that took a while getting used to. The only reason I would ever think of going back over there is because of the location. Its just a 2 minute walk from CST station.
KAPIL from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 05 Sep 2008
I was expecting a good big room, but the room was very small and in one corner of the Hotel. But otherwise it was a pleasant say. You cant have food there as they don't have a good preparation, it is advisable that you get it from out side. Thought it was very far from the Airport but ...!!
PUNEET from faridabad, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 05 Sep 2008
We booked 2 super deluxe rooms for our stay. Size of one of rooms was very small and was without a LCD screen. We felt as room one of the rooms given to us was not super deluxe, maybe deluxe A/c. Location of the hotel good, very near to VT Station. Food was good but service was average. Toilet of one of room given to us were not cleaned properly. Size of the room was a big constraint, walking in the room was difficult.
GYANENDRA from PUNE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 04 Sep 2008

Hotel is located centrally in the main city. Our room was clean and neat but the toilet was dirty. The Restaurant was clean, the food they served was delicious . The Staff too was caring and polite. It was worth the money we paid.
T SRINIVAS from Hydarabad, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 03 Jul 2008
Our room was not cleaned properly, and the interiors were not all that appealing. Even the bathroom was very ugly. The staff service was average. Despite being a South Indian hotel, it does not provide South Indian food, and whatever we ordered was average in taste. We had chosen this hotel because of its location.
RAJARAM from Bangalore, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 29 Jun 2008
It was an average property with nothing great to share. The room quality was very normal and not so spacious also. The service and food arrangement was quite ordinary is well. The location was just fine enough.

VINOD from Kochi, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 02 Jun 2008
The quality was not so desirable. The bed was not comfortable and room was not big enough for couples. I just stayed there for a night so I managed somehow. Otherwise rest was fine but I didn't feel like it was worth the price charged.
ANURAG from Dehradun, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 30 May 2008
I am not quite pleased with my stay here. The room i was provided was dirty & not maintained properly at all. The room service staff too was a bit unprofessional. The food served was OK though. This is a below average hotel.
RAMBABU from Bangalore, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 30 May 2008
Hotel Manama's major plus point is its location. It is close to the hub of Mumbai's business activities.VT and Churchgate stations are just walking distance away. Vidhana Sabha is not far off. In close proximity to this hotel are a good choice of decent restaurants, bars and eateries with reasonable rates. I found most of the front office staff were good. Only one of them was very indifferent and unresponsive early in the morning (before I was going out for breakfast) when I was making some inquiries.
The room service staff seemed to be well-intentioned, but they need to be trained and made more professional: One of them got me a wrong food bill and when I said it was not mine he felt apparently embarrassed and started cursing in foul language the person responsible for the goof-up. It was a funny sight watching him curse his colleague in my presence.
Nobody offered to clean my room even once during my stay. There was no mug in the bathroom. Soap was given only when asked. No remote control for the AC. But furniture and decor in the room are good.
The sight of a congested room service kitchen near the lift is bit of an eyesore.
The flaws didn't seem to matter to me as I was sending e-mails and working on my laptop most of the time in the room. I suggest that the hotel management should consider providing complementary wi-fi internet connectivity for at least guests on business trips. Such a step will only add to the hotel's locational advantage.
Overall the hotel is worth the money one pays in an expensive city like Mumbai considering its (the hotel?s) location.
Maybe next time I am in Mumbai I prefer to choose this hotel despite its drawbacks. What I feel the hotel's plus points are: its pricing and location.
V.P from Jammanagar, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 16 May 2008

GOPALJI from Lucknow, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 13 May 2008
The location was nearby the station so it was very convenient and service was also decent one. The room quality was well up to the standard. We used to take food from outside but overall I felt that it was slightly expensive hotel as per the rates.
SHAHBAZ AHMED from kunderki, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 13 May 2008

Apart from the blood-sucking bugs on our bed we completely enjoyed our stay here. We liked the location which helped us commute with ease. The management was very friendly. This being our first trip to mumbai, they guided us perfectly. They made arrangements for a cab as well. We even appreciate the delicious food they served us. We would like to come over again.

MADHUSUDHAN from KOLKATA, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 24 Jul 2007
The air condition was working without remote control which caused problems in the night. The temperature was fixed at 21 degree which could not be altered in the absence of remote control or even manually. Food was too costly and not upto the mark.
SUNEEL from New Delhi, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 24 Jul 2007
The hotel is in the commercial hub of south mumbai near to chatrapati shivaji railway station.The room is very nice but not so clean as it has to be, but it has various facilities like TV,hot and cold water,baggage room and safe deposit lockers. Near the hotel is Gateway of India about 2 km. I did not have my food in the hotel as I was out the whole day. The staff people are very helpful.
JOSEPH from Goa, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 20 Jun 2007
Hotel Manama is tidy, simple and good value for money. It is close to CST station. The hotel scores points for cleanliness and price. Facilities in the rooms include hot showers and decent-sized TVs and the overall atmosphere is friendly and laid-back.
RAVI from Gurgaon, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 13 Jun 2007
Is it conveniently situated to main tourist attractions, The Gateway, Elephanta Island and museums. Manama's main advantage is the location - it is very close to VT station, and is therefore a good place for sightseeing. There are a lot of small eateries nearby. Otherwise, it's a little run-down, a lot of people stay there for 1 night only because it is so close to VT station (they have trains to catch the next day). Still, it is reasonably clean and fairly hygienic.nearby.

The rooms are tidy. The staff are polite I had a problem with the hot water since it was running cold but staff were quick to come and fix the problem. The advantage of this hotel is its low price and proximity to South Mumbai.
