We have a one room studio in an old Bandra village.Most days its used for commercial classes but a fews days each month its available for people looking for short stays (1 to 3 (URL HIDDEN) includes a sofa that is actually a small double bed,a pantry,a clean loo and shower (no geyser though),an AC and a small fridge.
Its ideal for backpackers tourists or anyone just cruising through the city,and needs a comfy clean and beautiful but low cost place to stay.The charm of the place is that its located in an antique village surrounded by old portugese style cottages and villas full of character and nostalgia.The place would be more suitable for animal lovers or people who are comfy with animals,as everyone in the village has dogs and cats.Smokers are also welcome but we apologise the studio is a non smoking area so they will have to smoke outside.
1,A great location-highly convenient in the queen of Mumbai suburbs, with all major shops/ restaurants/entertainment facilities within a 3 km radius.The local train station is less than 1 km away and the domestic airport about 10km away.
2.A Neat, Clean and green space with fresh clean sheets.
3.Warm and welcoming hosts who are happy to assist you anyway we can.
4.A perfect place for 1 person and reasonably good place for 2.
5.A good place for backpackers,women travelers,couples ,those who love the quaint and quirky and have a sense of adventure.
6.A Small Fridge to store your goodies.
7.We are also working on a free guide ebooklet that tells you about all the best kept secrets in Bandra (restaurants/entertainment/hang outs etc).Till we get the book done you can ask the host any details regarding the above:-)
However please note the following:
1.Our Sofa bed can accommodate two but its a small size(approx 4 feet wide and 6 feet long).Each person can get about 2 feet of width space on the bed.In our experience,this is perfectly fine with most guests but may not be suitable for those who need more space.
2.The Loo is small and has a hand shower and a western style toilet..The loo ceiling is quite low.So if you are more than 5 feet 5 inches tall you may have to crouch or use a sitting position to have your shower.
3.If you are scared of animals,the outside surroundings of the studio may not be suitable for you.We do not have or allow pets inside the studio,but all the residents of the village have pet animals.
4.If you are two people who need large amounts of individual space this place may not be right for you.
5.The place may not be suitable for older people or people with special needs.
6.Long stay guests :Normally the place is only available for up to 3 nights.However we make make exceptions when the place is not being used as a studio for longer periods.We however strongly recommend that a long stay may not be suitable if you need large amounts of space.
