Navin & Vineeta are amazing hosts!!!!! I had a great time chatting with them about their work and travel stories. They are very helpful, considerate and instantly make you comfortable. The room with the attached bathroom is very comfortable. The surroundings are very quiet and you can get public transport within a few minutes of walking. The house is in the heart of the city. I really hope I had stayed longer to interact more. Definitely, next time!!
This was my first time using airbnb and it was the perfect choice. Their place is super easy to get to from the inexpensive airport bus and near the park. Both Vineeta and Navin are interesting, kind hosts. They were fun to talk to and even made me some dinner. Vineeta got up early to make sure I found the bus back to the airport. The room is comfortable.
Overall, a wonderful place and hosts.
Navin & Vineeta's place was wonderful! They make you feel right at home and are very knowledgeable about the local scene. The location is fantastic and really close to UB City's shopping area, as well as a ton of local restaurants, shops, etc. There's the state park nearby, which is a great run in the mornings. Definitely recommend to Bangalore newcomers!
Must start off with how vitally located Vineeta and Navin's space is. The apartment is located in a peaceful, green, modern and well kept neighbourhood, off the highly valued Lavelle Road. You will be surprised to find almost everything significant about Bangalore shockingly close. During our short visit we zipped through Koshy's, UB City, Hard Rock Cafe, Smokhouse Deli, Church Street, St. Mark's Cathedral and street shopping on Bridage Road/Commercial Street in very little time. Vineeta and Navin were very hospitable. In fact we arrived at 5 O'clock on a Saturday morning at short notice, and were surprised they let us in that early. I take this act of kindness as an exception, and I encourage you never to ruin their precious sleep. Karma would do you no favours. I just made the point to stress their credibility as hosts. The house is more than comfortable, and the amenities are as promised. No complaints, absolutely enjoyed my stay.
Vineeta y Navin son seres humanos sumamente cálidos. Al estar en su casa me sentí cómodo, seguro, tranquilo y como en familia. No sólo son buenos anfitriones, sino que son seres humanos amables, sonrientes y con un sentido humano notable. Tuve problemas con mi banco, y tuvieron la cortesía de apoyarme hasta con eso. Si el mundo tuviese muchos como ellos, este mundo sería distinto. Superaron mis expectativas.
La casa, y la habitación eran exactamente como lo describía la app. El barrio céntrico y tranquilo.
I had a wonderful time staying with Vineeta and Navin. Both of them are a lot of fun and excellent hosts. The listing is in a wonderful location and close to almost everything important in Bangalore. Looking forward to staying with them again whenever I am back in Bangalore.
