About This Listing

I have a small studio apartment in Central Mumbai where I stay as well. It has a hall where there is a large sofa cum bed which can accommodate 2 adults - this is what's on offer along with an exclusive bathroom for guests and use of the kitchen plus a self-service breakfast. Indian rotis can also be requested. There are also two shelves for storage.

My place is clean, cheerful, located in the geographical Centre of the city and fairly well connected to the older parts of the city in South Bombay. Via the new Eastern Freeway opened in June 2013 just next to my building, it's possible to go non-stop to South Mumbai (near VT/CST station) in just 15-20 minutes. South Mumbai is the older part of the city and is the most popular tourist area in the city with museums, historical architecture, famous sights etc.

What makes it unique is that although located in the central part of the city, it's a fairly newly developed area and therefore a bit cut off, with parks and open areas which are very rare in the city. All basic requirements are within easy walking distance and this is an ideal place if you want to experience both the Southern parts of Mumbai (art, culture, history) and Bandra (nightlife, cafes etc).

I will not pretend that this is the most comfortable accommodation you can get but this arrangement is ideal for short-stay budget travellers as Mumbai has no hostels and budget hotels are not only low quality but also often not very cheap. I also try and give my guests as much privacy and space as possible. Even though I reserve the right to have my own personal guests, I will ensure that they will not invade your privacy. Come here if you're looking for an informal experience and an easygoing host!

LOCATION - NEIGHBOURHOOD DESCRIPTION

There is a bus stop right downstairs and it is a 10-15 min taxi ride to four different local train stations, with one on each of the three different railway lines. There is also a bus that goes to South Mumbai.

The international airport is about half an hour away, depending on the time of day.

Via the new Eastern Freeway opened in June 2013 just next to my building, it's possible to go non-stop to South Mumbai (near VT/CST station) in barely 15-20 minutes.

Lower Parel and Bandra can be reached in half an hour without traffic. Of course, a lot depends on traffic in Mumbai!

Taxis are usually easily available near the building.

There are also a couple of parks (quite rare in Mumbai) close by.

MEALS
Self-service western breakfast. Indian rotis (bread shaped like pancakes) available on request.

Filtered and boiled water available for drinking.

You can also use the kitchen to cook your own meals.

AMENITIES
There is cable TV in the hall in front of the couch, an IMAX theatre nearby and pay-per-use gym, sauna and swimming pool downstairs.

Speedy wifi and use of laptop now available.

I am out most of the day and sometimes on weekends as well so when you contact me, please let me know your estimated time of arrival and departure. I am flexible about this as long as it's mutually convenient.

Pls feel free to ask me any questions! Also check out the House Rules before booking.
