Original hotel with the beautiful Soul
on Apr 29, 2017
Situated in one of the most cozy and attractive spots in Mumbai this hostal is really to recommend. It's charming and original. The hotel opened about 75 years ago and is still run by same family. You can feel the tradition of good service, hospitality and pure kindness in the walls. Simple and clean pittoresque rooms. Also good prices. And the owners is just lovely, superproffesional and make sure that your stay will be very pleasant.
Lovely and helpful

Lawrence and his mother are wonderful hosts. They try to help you with everything. Excellent location for a good price. Tried to go back this month but they are fully booked. I am not surprised. All the best.
Cheap and perfect area

I was 3 nights there with my family and I , perfect guest house: there is the minimum to enjoy your stay, very straight forward but anything you need, there is indeed no plugs in the room, but Mickael ( the nicest owner ever) will let you use his office plugs.
Mickael even pushed his kindness for christmas by offering us chai and cake on the morning with a big smile,
If you look for a cheap and clean place this is perfect
I will add that the situation is perfect, lot of good and tasty bakery around for a good coffee and very central :-)
I'll come back.
been there done that

I first discovered the Lawrence hotel in the 80s and then again in the 90s.
So I will go back again to the same. You have to be flexible and cut out the crap of looks because when you get your room it is clean tidy and so close to the heart of this great city
Mumbai is expensive, Hotel Lawrence is not

This place is a total bargain for its location! Close to some great cafes and shops in a nice area of Mumbai. The couple who run it are LOVELY.
It's quite hard to find and you have to go up a very poorly-lit staircase - if you're travelling alone maybe try not to arrive late at night because while the people chilling in the stairwell seem to be minding their own business it does give you a bit of a fright!
My room didn't have a powerpoint but the owners were more than happy to let me charge my phone, camera, etc. in reception and they looked after it.
The bathrooms are shared.
