“True Value For Money!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Our stay at the apartment lasted for 2 weeks, from 1 Aug 2012 to 13 Aug 2012, we arrived at 10:20 pm from a three and a half hour flight from Dubai and didn’t have the energy to go food hunting for dinner but to my surprise the apartment also came with a fully equipped kitchen which resulted in us trying to cook our own 'home made' meal! The suite which I booked came along with a mini-bar (without the liquor) and a fully stocked fridge filled with bits and bobs for daily consumption.

One of the first things is noticed was the traditional French architecture of D habitat. The rooms were well maintained. The staff were ever prompt at their service and offered a helping hand whenever required. Every morning we would get a phone call at precisely 7:30am (which was also our wakeup call) when our chef asked us what we would like for breakfast, and tried to prepare whatever we felt like eating to the best of his abilities.

D habitat's main mark was its location. With the apartment situated in a quaint quite residential street while being in the middle of a commercial arcadia added to the unique character of D habitat!

The next day after our arrival we thought of visiting Cubbon Park which was around 5 km (approx), and since it was listed in the top 10 tourist sites to visit in Bangalore, I thought ‘why not?’ and might I add, It did not disappoint! Cubbon park was immense! With a huge jogging track and a massive play ground for children. The outing to Cubbon park took us half a day to complete. The second half was spent in ‘The Lal Bagh Botanical Garden’ filled with exotic plants and greenery, a perfect opportunity to click a picture or two.

D- Habitat was right in the middle of some of the best 'eat outs' in Bangalore city. So many such that you would receive a little taste of home no matter where you’re from. My personal favorite was 'Cafe' Pascussi' serving authentic Italian cuisine and 'The Sahib Sind Sultan' which offered north Indian exquisiteness!

New and upcoming malls such as "Oasis" and "The Forum" malls fit for shopaholics were within walking distance which made our 2 week visit all the more pleasant and entertaining.

Other attractions included the nearby 'Inidranagar' that we visited which proved to be a foodie's Promised Land and a shopper's Eden. Four km away was Bangalore's famous MG road and Brigade road which was the manager's first suggestion, these streets were packed with tourists and city folk from almost all parts of India! MG road was filled with stores, stalls, restaurants and mainly happening clubs and pubs for city night dwellers.

However, some of the disappointments of D habitat were that, even thou the staff had the best intentions of providing a quality service, they were uncommunicative which resulted in confusions a few times, taking the instance where there was a confusion in providing me directions to a nearby vegetable market - needless to say, its the little things like this that makes or breaks a good trip.

D habitat spells true value for money! With its large living space and great service offered, keeping the price range in mind - was truly a 'no brainer' for my choice! I would surely recomend this to any fellow traveller looking for a pleasant, enjoyable, hassle free trip!

The reviews here led me to believe this would be a good place. It was an extremely average place. I am not sure if it was the room in which stayed(apt 101) but it was quite a let down. The apartment we stayed in seems to have been an old veranda/sit out which was converted. The bed was quite hard and not at all comfortable. The bathroom was 6 feet x 4 feet.... and had a partition between the sink and shower area which was totaly stuck and unusable. Geysers were slow and took ages to work. The bathroom in this room has some shared exhaust with the bathroom in the next aprtment(102 i think) and we could hear what people were speaking in the next apartment... it was a really tiny bathroom and wouldnt be recommendable for slightly more senior people. Overall, a let down and I am sure there will be better places to stay in at this price.

Room Tip: dont take 101.

Dear Peter,

Thank you for the wonderful review. We must tell you, you are a model guest - who is able to see humour when my boys blundered. I learnt from you this approach works as well as the conventional frown or a strong word.

We already have new places to recommend to you in Bangalore - that sure is fast development.

Yours Sincerely,

All of Us at D Habitat

These serviced apartments were clean, large and the staff provided an excellent service for us. The flats are also relatively reasonably priced considering how nice they are. You will get more of an authentic Indian experience staying here than if you stay in a resort hotel. Highly recommended. The only slight criticism I have is that the pressure in the shower wasn't great.

We travelled to India from Canada, a family of six, arriving on Jan 11 2011 and leaving on Jan 6th 2012. Our youngest are 13 and 15. We stayed in the three bedroom apartment with D'Habitat Hotel Apartments twice, for two nights after our arrival and for one night, once back in Bangalore just prior to our long journey home.

The apartment was very spacious, with two floors, a deck on the roof, and a functional living room and kitchen on the main floor. Air, hot water, shower, all worked well. Each room did have a TV, though we had no real interest in television.

If you have not travelled to india, this is not a luxury hotel. What it does have is some space, and some character. It also has a washer and you can hang clothes on a line on the sun deck roof fyi (now that I remember).

The apartments are well located near some very nice restaurants, including a Pizza Hut (look for the Pizza Hut when you are searching for the location) and eat there if you are looking for a little taste of home.

There is also an internet cafe nearby, but don't try to find it without asking Girish N.. the manager of D'habitat Apartments. We ultimately did and Girish had someone walk us there, which was very helpful of him. There is also a walking park nearby, fenced in, as is the style within some cities in India, where you can walk around a track, within a fenced in area of trees, gardens and shrubs.

What makes a real difference in this kind of hotel is the space, the amenities and the people. Girish N. does a great job managing the units. He is very helpful and kind. If you have any issues he will try to work through the issues with you. I accidentally left my travel journal in the apartment when we flew back to Canada, and after contacting Girish, he had it sent to me and refused any payment to cover the cost of mailing. This was a very kind gesture.

Our apartment included the services of a morning cook - who arrived at a designated time. His name was/is Shivakumar. A more gentle soul you will not meet. He did his utmost to bring in some choice food and cook it for our breakfast. He would stay for an hour or two cleaning up afterwards. Shivakumar did his utmost to satisfy with his cooking and his gentle and kind attitude provided a sense of welcome for our family that would have been missing in a less hospitable environment.

In terms of a 4 or 5 star rating. If they replaced the floors and somewhat worn furniture, I think that the place would appear outstanding. It does have a somewhat worn feel to it. If your ok with not being completely pampered by modern furniture and finishes, then this hotel is a fantastic choice. I went for numerous walks, and you can see some very interesting sights wherever you are in India.

I read the poor rating below. The complaints seem to be far more closely connected to what one can expect when in India as opposed to the characteristics of a particular hotel.

Enjoy and don't be afraid to choose this hotel as your choice.

PS. If you have hired a driver, there are no driver rooms in many smaller hotels or homestays.

All the best from Canada.

I stayed there for three nights in the first week of September and took a suite for myself and my daughter who is studying at Bangalore . It included our own living room and kitchen and we were really happy to have the place all by ourselves . The staff were warm and friendly and the lacation is absolutely fantastic . Within walking distance you can indulge in any kind of food you want whether it is Continental.Chinese or Pizzas or even you have late night snack . Definitely recoomended for families who would like to expereince their home away from home .

Room Tip: If possible go for the first floor rooms -the two bedroomed apartment is really nice for four adults...
