We spotted this hotel and decided we would prefer to stay a bit out of central Mumbai and get more for our money. It is particularly good value if you can take advantage of one of their special packages. One word of warning – none of the taxi drivers (either from the airport or central Mumbai) knew where it was, but luckily we had a phone with GPS, and could help them navigate!
We were delighted with our spacious room up on the 9th floor, and had no trouble with noise at all, despite there being a wedding taking place at the Acres Club every night of our stay. The bed was huge and very comfortable, there was plenty of storage space, tea & coffee making facilities and a free bottle of water each every day. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with a nice range of toiletries, a very good shower, and usefully, a pull-out clothes line if you wanted to wash through a couple of small items and get them dry.
The included breakfast was very good, offering fresh fruits and juices, freshly cooked eggs, Indian buffet breakfast and cakes and breads. You could have multiple top-ups of tea or coffee too.
I used the gym at the Acres Club, which was well equipped. We had thought we might spend time by the pool, but it is definitely a pool for swimming, not for lying beside – no lounge chairs or anything like that. We also ate in the club twice, and found the food tasty, so that is an option if you’ve been out all day and don’t want to head off again.
Provided you don’t want to in the heart of Mumbai this is a really well-priced option.
