why do people like this place?

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 2, 2007

On my second trip to Mumbai, I thought I knew what I wanted. Someplace in South Mumbai but a little out of the way so it might be quiet. The Residency (The Fort Residency) seems to be favorite with budget travelers and the location was out of the noisey gate of india scene and closer to the churchgate station.
My tiny upper floor room was a disappointment. It was noisey as it overlooked the street where cabs and others congregated. The facilities were clean but worn and dated. Rather depressing.
The staff for the most part was ok. Messages, however, were never delivered-- and, as a result, there were missed connections with friends.
The free internet connection in the lobby was monopolized by one guest and the staff would not enforce any sort of time limit. There is a dodgy internet center around the corner.
The neighborhood was not touristic and certainly not upscale. Pirated dvd's and cheap jewelry knockoffs were all over. There were a lot of restaurants in the area heading east and south.

Directions: there are two choices for the street name. gun bow i believe is the older name. commercial area
