Bottom Line: I would not stay here again and I would not recommend it to any of my friends.
Let's start with the the negative:
The building is concrete and sound travels irritatingly well throughout the house. There is NO WiFi in the rooms, and NO privacy in the common area. Rahul has now updated his description to show this, but before my arrival the description was different and he assured me that there would not be a problem. Lack of Internet is a problem by itself, but Rahul's behavior in dealing with it is what REALLY pissed me off. He completely refused to take responsibility for the issue and at one point even blamed the issue on our devices, claiming that no one else has had the problem, which is a lie, as you can see from a review left by a previous guest. He ONLY apologized for it on the day I told him I'd get AirBnB involved to move out early and issue the refund...which we did.
The positive: I give 4-5 stars on all the sections in the summary. The apartment complex is quiet and peaceful. His garden is beautiful. The view is great. Rahul's housekeeper (Vidya) is very nice. The apartment is clean.
I could tell that Rahul tries to be a nice guy. I sincerely hope he will learn from this experience and provide better service in the future.
Nice location. The view of the garden, trees and the river was excellent, as was the room. The neighborhood is very quiet, compared to the noise level on the main street.
We didn't see Rahul much after the initial meeting on arrival.
The only issue we had was that the Wifi was not available in our room and we had to be on the ground floor to access it.
Rahul was an excellent host and the place was very well located. The room was one of the nicest I have stayed in - the photos are real! Every morning it was a delight to wake up to the sights and sounds of the river and it's birdlife.
It is my first time in Pune and I am really glad, that I found Rahul´s place. The Riverside Society is a really quit and good on. The House of Rahul has a beautiful garden attached witch looks like on the pictures and all the room have their own bathroom. The area of Koregaon Park is the place to be in Pune, there are a lot of shops and great restaurants. The Osho Ashram is just a 5 minutes’ walk away. Rahul is a nice host, really friendly and gives you all you need, without being too pushy. For my next trip to Pune, I will definitely stay in his house again.
