This hotel was booked on the basis of its location, viz. its closeness to the Mumbai International airport. I stayed at this hotel for 4 days.

Right from the word "go", my experience was very pleasant. I was picked up at the airport by the hotel's staff. The receptionist's too were very cordial and helpful. I was taken to my room which seemed very cozy and comfortable - above all, clean. I was told about room service, laundry service, hot water availability, television, the mini fridge and its stock, etc.

As regards room service, it is prompt and the food is tasty. All the staff seemed polite and conscientious of their duties, e.g. after you have finished your meal, it is cleared off and the crockery is not just left outside the room. You are also given a complimentary Bisleri bottle daily.

If you like to eat out, you also have that option as there are fast food eateries around (e.g. Subway, Pizza Hut), though one would have to travel by rick to get to one of the same. There are general stores just outside the hotel, as also a pharmacy, and a money exchange shop.

Rooms are cleaned and wiped daily, with a total linen change and a replenishment of used toiletries or drinks/biscuits/chips/water from the mini fridge.

Overall, a stay at this hotel truly seems "paisa wasool".

I went to Mumbai in Dec 08 with 4 of my friends, hadn't booked anywhere to stay. Went to the tourist info and they pointed out this hotel, i accepted as the rate was £28pppn and it was a 4*. I arrived at the hotel and was very pleased with everything about the hotel, the service, cleanliness, security, food etc. I only paid for one night, although i planned to stay in Mumbai for approx a week, so after the 1st nights stay, i haggled with the hotel manager to bring the room rate down to £22pppn and he agreed. The only downfall was the location, there was nothing to do around the hotel, but auto's (3 wheeler motors) run around the clock and are very cheap and safe to get from A to B. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, the staff were so very friendly and provided a fab service. Would definately stay there again!

A number of my family members used this hotel Dec 06 when attanding a wedding in India.

Everyone enjoyed their stay, the hotel is clean, well furnished,
comforable, & modern.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for them.

They picked us up from the airport at 2.00am with a smile, good start to the holiday.

Wonderful hotel to stay in, will use it again.

Good place to stay near airport vlue for money and not pricy at all...
satyed here more then 3 times now, nice rooms and good food room service.
the best part is the hotel is just 10mins from CSI Airport which saves so much of time that if you cheked in online with your airline you can just turn up before an hour to your flight and rest all that time while others are queing up there.

Its a very budget hotel in mumbai. Being it a budget hotel but it also has a clean and good rooms.
Its Conveniently located just half a km away from the APMC Market, this 3 storey building is designed beautifully with an atrium and an indoor patio that offers World-class services to its patrons. A total of 25 well-furnished rooms are available with ultra modern amenities. Guests can order for their meal through the 24hours room service facility. There is meeting rooms for official purposes and valet parking facility to park private vehicles of the guests.
The food was nice. I still remember the taste of the food in my mouth still now..

During a seven hour wait at Mumbai Airport, it was necessary to check in to an hotel because, due to renovation of the international airport, there were no restaurants or left luggage facilities. Thus it was necessary to check in to a local hotel for a meal and to pass the time.
This hotel was pricey for what it offered, but we had no choice and found it comfortable enough. The restaurant food was not good.

Excellent hotel! very clean. Very friendly staff - who try all they can to help you. This hotel is 5 minutes from the international airport.

Nagesh Joshi is one of the sfaff - a friendly and honest man who did what he could to help me when I had a problem with my flight to london.

It's true what has been written. We had an international flight from Mumbai to the US and needed a place to stay for one night in Mumbai, to catch the flight. We landed in Mumbai with no plan. The hotel rep happened to be at the airport, greeted us, and we took a chance. Luck was on our side...the hotel was clean, friendly, nice, and pleasant. Westerners woudl be quite satisfied. They have a Western toilet and shower, clean rooms, and a very reasonable price compared to the five-star hotels in the area. This hotel is a good stopover place for international flights. Also, they have an active shuttle transport service to and from the airport. The hotel is very close to the intl. airport, about five (5) minutes from there. We had to be at the airport at 4 am for our flight and the shuttle took us there on time, even at that ungodly hour. I would stay there again, without hesitation based on our first experience.

The Solitaire is one of Mumbai’s newer properties. The rooms are nice, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very nice and yes it had a western style toilet. This property is located in close proximity to the domestic airport and not far from the international airport. It is a great bargain! There was a restaurant on site but I did not have the opportunity to try it out. If you are looking for a safe, affordable place to stay for a night this is a great option.

Hotel Solitaire is located near the airport so is very convenient for travel.
The hotel is not very nice but is ok for cost effective business travel, the looby and restaurant us ok, not very nice.

Rooms are spacious as per mumbai standards, no internet is offered in the room or lobby, you have to use the hotel internet in there business desk. the food offered in room service is ok, not great. but not expensive.

Rooms are clean, beds are not very comfortable, bathrooms are clean.

overall a ok hotel, not great but is value for money i think

I am from Chennai and I see two main things when I am in Mumbai - location (as it determines how easy / hard it is to reach business locations) and cleanliness. On the location front, Solitaire scores well because it is in Andheri and close to "mumbai biz div". On the room part, Solitaire is clean but the room is average (it is an older hotel). It is value for money because of location. The restaurant is nice and serves good food.
For a quick visit to Mumbai where you plan to stay only for a couple of days, it is fine. For longer trips, I prefer a more snazzier place.

Was looking a hotel one late night in the area, and chanced upon Solitaire. Called them and haggled a bit which brought down the price and then went. Its bang on the main Sahar Road (which goes straight to international airport in 20-25 min), and just off the Western Express Highway (which goes straight to domestic airport in 10-15 min).

Room was smelling a little damp, so had to ask for a room freshener. Slightly random housekeeping staff, who barged in when i opened the door! otherwise a quiet place, and I'm sure other rooms would be better. Nice location.

Overall experience is good, with all facilities in premises in addition to free pickup and drop to airport. It is near airport and in heart of Andheri.

Solitaire is a great hotel for business travellers who'd like proximity to the airport at a very competitive price. The hotel has excellent service, including airport pick-up and drop on the house. Room service was very prompt and the food was a pleasant surprise. The chef at mid-night knows his pastas from the butter chicken gravy! The only let down was the cleanliness of the rooms and the condition of the overall fittings, walls, paint and fixtures at the hotel. The upholstery and linen could have been better. The rooms were fairly spacious and the queen size bed was quite cozy. However, the noisy A/C can be a spoiler for light sleepers. Overall, I was satisfied by the service quality and friendliness of the staff, almost like airline staff, but was not happy with the maintenance standards of the hotel.

Look, this hotel isn't the worst in the world but here are some facts :
- It looks out onto slums, not in the distance, but right outside the window.
- The building looks like a slum itself, but is okay inside.
- We paid in advance in cash on entry as requested. They then tried to make us pay again on leaving and tried to charge us for meals we had not eaten. It appears to be a regular scam
- The rooms are okay. Two single beds seem standard. Bathroom old-fashioned but okay.
- It was quite expensive for a Mumbai hotel.

We were laid over in Mumbai and the "hotel desk" at the airport conned us into staying here. There were no recognisable chain hotels on their list. But when the cab took us to the hotel we passed the Intercontinental and dozens of others.

Maybe we simply overpaid. If the price was budget then this hotel would be okay for one night in transit. But for $150 a night this was no good.

部屋は少し古い感じがして空調の音が気になりました。レストランはリーゾナブルな値段で味はまあまあですが、清潔感が足りない感じがします。ホテルの人達の接客も納得できるものではありませんでした。食事・サービス等の値段や合計額を何度か間違えられました。

We stayed here on 14/07/2011 and checked out on 15/07/2011. They gave us used Towels, there was blood stains on the blanket cover and the linen. The prices of food items were sky high. The Mini bar was full of rotten items. No one will pick up the phone in House-keeping and in the Room Service! In one sentence, this is a ZERO Star Hotel. Just avoid it!

Stayed overnight. Situated in a bad area, traffic noise/congestion horrible. The hotel charges Rs 50 per minute for a national phone call when outside its Rs 4-5/minute. even local calls which should be minimal are heavily charged!!! The food in the restaurant is awful. Just fancy western names to fool people arriving from western countrires, they do not know how to make a simple chicken caesar salad..mixed some vegies together with big pieces of toast without even a basic salad dressing forget chicken!!! Food charges a rip off for substandard stuff !!! Reception awful, absolutely mannerless and rude..staff do not know basics of credit card payments!!! Would never stay next time ever ever again!!!
