“Conveniently close to airport”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

Karl Residency is a small hotel located within minutes of the suburban Andheri Railway Station and Mumbai's international airport. With two lovely parks on either side, the hotel is in a fairly quiet area. But you would need to walk several yards to get to the main street to get any conveyance. Our double room was of average size. There is not much of closet space to speak of or bench space to lay your luggage. The room and bath were quite clean. The breakfast is listed as a la carte but in reality is all part of a buffet. At least when we were there, the buffet was set up in some corner room and except for toast and eggs consisted mostly of North Indian food.

The first day we were surprised when asked to pay cash for breakfast, room service or laundry - in most hotels this is added to the room. But after a complaint to the manager at the reception this changed. Likewise when we complained about lukewarm water in the shower, the next day we started getting hot water! In fact, if you are unhappy with any issue they were willing to go the extra mile to make you happy. For this reason we liked the hotel a lot. We found the staff very helpful and obliging. A taxi was arranged for our airport drop as well as going to some temples. Overall for a short stay near the airport the hotel is ideal. There is a restaurant at the top floor which we did not visit. Occasionally there were party noises in the evening but this died down later.

This is a good hotel and ideally located at a walking distance to the Andheri station.
The reception of this hotel is pleasant and I liked the marble-look interiors as well.
The room is good, spacious and well kept and the service staff is also well-mannered and efficient.
Another nice thing about its location is that it is situated in a quiet place and there are shopping malls like Shopper’s Stop at a walking distance.
Also, there is a small nice garden near-by to spend a nice, quiet time with kids and family.
The banquet halls in this hotel are good and the food served is also good.
To conclude, this hotel is good to stay.

I have been staying at Karl Residency very frequently for the last one year. The hotel is located at very serene locality and feels as though the noise of Mumbai is far far away. The room service is excellent although a little. The rooms are basic and are priced accordingly. However the rooms do need a little renovation to look and feel better. The restaurant at the terrace is superb with good food priced well and delivered fast. The check in counter staff are cooperative and go an extra mile to solve any problems.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on higher floors for a good view

Wonderful location next to a park, away from Mumbai's noise but very close to good shopping centres. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, extremely reasonable for Mumbai, The service was good- better and more efficient than some bigger hotels in Mumbai.Only bad experience was from Billing. Make sure you carry all transaction and correspondence proof at this place.

Room Tip: Make sure you carry all prof of payment to hotel

Stayed there for a business seminar arranged by my company. quite far off from the airport and located in a residential community. Quite old and interiors are not very elegant I must say.
Rooms have the bare minimum. Floor are granite and not very pleasing I must say. To a certain degree the staff were not very forthcoming.
Theres a swimming pool at the terrace with restaurant and bar. Thats the place you want to eat as the other places are absolutely no no.
They have two or three places where they serve their free breakfast and buffets ... both these places looked like hostel canteens really.
Good thing are you can take a walk in the park, wlk around and you will find shopping places nearby.

Room Tip: stay if you are on a strict budget. Bargain they do allow bargains if approached directly.

Walking distance from the Andheri railway station (local trains you can take from here) and a few kilometers from the airport, this hotel is in a commercial hub. You can very conveniently walk for good shopping experience. There is a swimming pool on the roof top. Three separate places- one on the pool side, another nearby, and still another one on uppermost level can be used by big groups. The rooms and bath rooms are quite clean. the food is also good. At that price, i think its a very reasonable and good property in Mumbai to stay in.

Room Tip: top floors I prefer

Located near Andheri west railway station, and also quite near to the Mumbai airport, this small hotel is kept clean, and gives a feeling of being at home. There are 3 separate places on roof top for different groups to have dinner-one on the pool side. the staff is friendly, food quite good. We had a few ceremonies for a family wedding in this hotel. And its good value for money also. There are shopping centres and eating joints nearby.
