To start with the key points.
It was nearby the airport a 5 min drive minus the traffic and located in Marol, Andheri
The property is located in a tower of buildings which is again a feel from home to another home.
since it was an official trip and the airport close by this was the best option with a price range at expensive but again its mumbai and everything here is expensive .
This is a 1BHK with a spacious room a dining area and a hall.
The place is well maintained at a top floor.
Staff was very courteous .
Serves a spread for breakfast.
The bathroom was clean.
Apart from the construction on the other sides everything else seemed to be normal.
So if ure looking for somewhere nearby and not ready to shed a lot of money on hotels for a day or 2, i suppose this is the place you'd want to be at.
If at all i head back again, I would choose the same ...
Very nice place. Neat and clean. Looks like the photos. However my key reason for liking this place is not so much the place itself but more the people aspect of it. Everyone on her team from the cook (Mr. Laxman), the guy who helps with errands (Mr. Vijay), the gentleman helping with bookings and other odds and ends (Mr. Akshay) to the absolutely wonderful and personable, outgoing and helpful owner of this business (Ms. Rekha Sharma)....is just tremendously warm, honest, sincere, down to earth and always willing to help with questions. For me especially, not having lived in Mumbai long term for many years, their support system proved immensely valuable. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fairly reasonably priced option in Mumbai. The cook was always very happy to make me some eggs every morning because I have dietary restrictions and cannot binge on carb rich foods. Always with a smile on his face. I looked forward every morning to see their smiling faces and calm attitudes. The cleaning ladies who came in every day were awesome! Especially Ms. Zaheda. She is the best!
Booked through airbnb and didnt know it was a serviced apartment. If you are used to staying in Juhu & Bandra, you may find the location a little down-market.
Huge drain work near the society meant it took me about 20 minutes to commute the last 500 mts. The check in staff were friendly and knew before hand that I was arriving since I called for directions. Would have been nice if they had warned me beforehand about any alternate routes and the traffic situation.
Nothing exceptional about the place, I stayed in 1004 which is located on the tenth floor with a side view of an empty pool. The society is large, but you feel cut off and have no social interactions at all as this company's units are located on different floors. Room was clean, bedroom aircon & WiFi worked. No aircon in the living area. TV remote was dated and furniture seemed dated too.
They had an iron box which really helped. Coffee/tea maker in the room. Never ate breakfast which I think was served at the first floor unit since I always was in a rush.
Lots of mosquitoes from the huge sewer nearby. Small roaches in the toilet were curling on my toothbrush... Ewwww! No toiletries were provided & bathroom bowl which made of glass should've been cleaned since this a serviced apartment. No dustbin in the loo.
Decent if you're on a business trip and don't crave any sort of social interaction.
This was a one bedroom apartment, very comfortable and as described on Airbnb website.
It was very clean and compact, the staff very very friendly and helpful.
very reasonable price.
They had a lovely kitchenette where i cooked my meal. supermarket was only five minutes from the apartment
I would stay there again.
If your preference is a well furnished apartment, entirely at your disposal, with no interference, look no further. This is "THE" place.
I spent 4 days in Mumbai, vacationing with my wife and 6 year old son. The moment I entered the apartment, all apprehensions vanished. The choice I made was bang on.
The apartment is in a posh gated community, with ease of access. A 1-BHK, equipped with Air Conditioner, Microwave, Refrigerator, Wi-Fi, Cable TV, and a very decent set of furniture. The bathroom is clean, jaguar fittings, hot water geyser, et al. The caretakers are in the same building, whose hospitality one can see the way they treat you for breakfast (complimentary).
Bottom line - A very satisfying stay. Immensely recommended.
