Raj and his family were very great host! Their place is really close to the station witch is good to move in the city! Her wife even came with us to the airport when we left! A typical family place to go when you arrive in Mumbai ! Thank you so much !
I was there for two night and the place was really perfect felt like home and raj was really welcoming and helped me out picking me the cabs for the event which I was there he's such a great host I would strongly recommend and I would love to stay there again on my next visit ...
This listing was as advertised. It's a small, clean studio apartment with it's own secure entrance in the northern suburbs of Mumbai (Santa Cruz). The neighborhood is vibrant with ample places to eat and the train station is nearby. Raj, a friendly, easy going man, will answer any questions you have and make you a great breakfast if you want.
-Wifi was recently updated so it's super fast. You can do Facetime/(website hidden) with ease.
-Close to train station
-Separate entrance to the studio
-Loud noise from planes coming every 4-5 min. This is disclosed in the description. It didn't bother me but if you are a light sleeper this may be a problem.
Raj and his wife welcomed us very warm. The apartment has everything you need and is located in a very buzzling and interesting area where you can get everything. Raj and his wife did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It is also very close to the airport, which is handy. On the other side you can also hear the planes. Wouldnt recommend if you need a tranquil surrounding. But In this case I also wouldnt recommend Mumbai :)
First of all I appreciated Raj's immediate reponse when I had questions and he was also flexible when I arrived one day earlier to Mumbai. I arrived to his place with a cab driver which I had organised from the hotel I stayed the previous night, without Rajs help on the phone talking to the cab driver it would have been much more difficult to find his house. This was really helpfull.
I felt save in with neighborhood where the places was located and also the train station was just 5min walking distance far away. Also it was easy to find the way back to his house from the trainstation.
Raj and his wife were very welcoming and hospitable. His wife made us a great breakfast every morning (not included in the price, but that we knew) and was very delicious! Raj was kind enough to meet us in the middle of the night, as our flight got in very late. My friend and I appreciated all of his hospitality!
Raj was an excellent host. He quickly communicated with me about the room and helped facilitate my arrival and departure. He made sure my stay was very comfortable and also helped provide me with the necessary information for getting to the train station/using the train to get around Mumbai. Though we didn't see each other much after my arrival since I was out exploring the city, he was a very considerate and helpful host during our encounter.
The room is great, especially if you're looking for a more authentic Mumbai experience. It's located in one of the less touristy areas (Santacruz station on the train) and surrounded by scenes of daily life of the city. The room comes with everything a traveler needs--bed, desk, closet, and wifi. The bed and bathroom may be less familiar to Americans, but not prohibitively different. For example, the bed is more typical of that of India and thus more firm than some travelers may be prepared for. Likewise, the bathroom--with switches that must be turned on ahead of time to heat the water, etc.--might catch some by surprise.
Overall, an excellent stay for your trip to Mumbai!

Perhaps, the one thing that is going to take you by surprise and also deeply touch you on your India tour is the warm hospitality of Indians. A ready smile on the face, always willing to go out of the way to help somebody, exuding genuine happiness upon meeting a person - these are some of the common traits you will find in maximum Indians. The Sanskrit adage, "Atithi Devo Bhava", meaning the guest is truly your god dictates the respect granted to guests in India. So it's understandable why the tourists visiting India want to come back again & again.
Having grown-up in a traditional Hindu Joint Family system prevalent in India since ancient times, I like to meet people from different parts of the world especially from different cultural back ground.
I have graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Bombay University and after serving for 14-years in project engineering I started this ‘Incredible India Homestay/ Bed & Breakfast’ establishment in our part of the world in the year 2003.
