Caliph is the typical 'budget' business hotel you would see in Mumbai. Though it is not cheap - its not uber expensive by Mumbai standards either. I chose it because I was on budget and wanted to stay as close as possible to IIT where I had some work. This is also very close to the airport, with a Meru costing about 250 INR to reach this location. Well, the checkin was usual and was rather quick as we had booked it online. The rooms are ok, but look run down like most hotels in this area. Unfortunately there was no bottled water and I had ask for it, which was promptly delivered and I guess was complimentary. I arrived at about 2 PM and since I had to rush to work in the next hour, I ordered food to the attached restaurant. The first thing the operator said was that it was beyond lunch time and that they have currently run out of 'paneer' and tandoor is down; and cannot serve any dish that has paneer in it. To top it, this person on the phone immediately recommended 'chicken biryani' - which appeared rather unsolicited - felt like giving orders on what to eat ! I ended up ordering Jeera Aloo & Tawa roti. The food was quite ordinary, I would not recommend this hotel until you are not willing to step outside for a bite. I came back late in the night - I must say that the front desk folks are quite courteous and friendly, but shock came to me when I opened my shower at 4:30 AM next day (I had to catch an early morning flight) and it was cold water all through - I called up the frontdesk and a half-asleep answer told me that you will get hot water in sometime - it never came. So I took a quick cold shower rushed out of the hotel. I had asked for an airport drop and had to wait at the reception for 20 mins for the car driver to turn up (or probably wake up?). They dropped me in a dinky Maruthi Eeco which was rattling all through to the airport and did at best 30 kmph and charged me 500 INR - which was not really worth that money.
"Not met expectations"

Location of the hotel is good. But facility and service did not meet expectations or price. Room did not have basic amenities expected for a hotel at this price. I will not recommend this hotel compared to other options available in the area.

"Found my iPad"

We were recently transferred in Mumbai, and had to stay here on emergency for 1 night. After couple of month my kids informed they had left their iPad in Caliph hotel here. I visited the hotel again after a month, with least hope of getting it back as it was more than 3 month. I was shocked to see the hospitality of the staff.... They were highly cordial, and returned the iPad with due formality. Highly appreciate their customer service and their honesty.

"Amazing experience with full of satisfaction"
I booked this hotel for my personal trip.really I felt a very good experience. The staff were very decent and well dressed. They responded me very well each time. The quality of food was good. One thing that I was like a lot that is the cleanliness. My room was in 2 floor and that was full furnished n well cleaned. really I felt very good. The staff who served me they were very honest and soft nature. In the end I would like to take names of some staff people who impressed me a lot and they are priyanshu and rishikesh.you guys are gems of this hotel. Keep up the same work...
"A comfortable stay, but with some minor inconveniences"
07/27/14 Akshay_Varma1992 Mumbai (Bombay), India
Stayed at Caliph for around courtesy my company. First thing one needs to know is that the hotel recently had a shift in ownership and management. Which means that there were minor issues to be found. I got a room on the second floor. The room was neat, comfortable and well furnished. During my stay I had access to both a television and Wifi. The staff was very courteous and effective. My room was cleaned everyday and the staff promptly responded to any requests I had. Now, to the negatives. The food for starters. Their restaurant is extremely slow in service, and we completely gave up after the second night and started going out for dinner. The complimentary breakfast used to taste horrible. A major problem that some of my colleagues, who were put up on the 4th floor, faced were furnishing flaws. For instance, ACs leaked in some of the rooms and there was no Wifi in others. This apparently, because the 3rd and 4th floor have only recently been constructed. Also, there was an issue with their access card enabled locks, which meant that we could not open the doors to our rooms and had to kept asking at the reception to send someone up. All in all, the staff and management seemed to be trying real hard to get things in order. But I would recommend that you make things very clear with the management before booking, regarding your requirements and specifically ask for a room that is in perfect working condition.
"Good hotel with bad service"
07/22/14 Manta G Mumbai
I along with my family of 3 members checked in on 17/07/2014 evening at 2300 hrs and out by 1830 hrs on 19/07/2014 to join my daughter in IIT,Powai. It is conveniently located near to IIT, software companies and the hotel is still under modernization. the room lacks a fan, hot water facility available only in morning. Food qaulity is average and room service is pathetic and they were callous. But the administrators were very courteous. M.Gangadhar Inspector of police, Cyberabad, Telangana.

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip. I was booked through Make My Trip and I was told that this is a three star hotel. I was shocked to see that the hotel is not a three star one. Though the location is good and they have a tall structure, but the room I was offered was pathetic, very untidy, The AC was making noise and the stuff was not trained enough to handle the situation. Some of the ights in the room was not working and strangely apart from two soaps given , no other toileries were available. Food was not so good and the restaurant also is not well equipped. The complimentary break fast was lean and when I asked for food , they showed me bananas which were left overs. The check out was also problematic as they initially refused to take the credit card and asked me to go to an ATM to draw cash for the payment.Unthinkable and unpardonable behavoiur it is according to me.
