AS GOOD AS I HAVE FOUND IN INDIA!”
The Oriental Residency is a genuinely great Hotel if you want to be in the Bandra / Khar area and dont have an endless budget. We stayed here for 6 nights and would not hesitate to stay here again next time we are in Bombay. The staff did everything they could to make our stay a good one. The kitchen team were great, the reception was professionally (if sometimes inadequately) staffed and we were pleased with almost every aspect of our stay. I say almost because there are a couple of comments that do need to be made. The first is that the hotel obviously relies on the 6th floor banquet room for much of its income. That is fine but the noise is relentless and a total nightmare for westerners not used to quite so much noise in hotels. The best advice I can offer is to take a room on a lower floor and as far from the lift / elevator as possible. Room numbers around 6,7,8 should be okay, but the higher your floor, the worse it will be. Next, dont rely too heavily on the hotel shuttle to the airport. It might not turn up when you need it so plan at least an hour before you really need it to give them a chance to find the absent driver or to book an alternate taxi. Apart from these two issues, the rest is fine. That said if you have grown up staying in Marriott, Hilton or Sheraton hotels you will find it inadequate, but this is India and this hotel is just fine.
Best helpfull receptionist like Pradeep and Alam”
It was my second time that i chosen the oriental residency. It is the best place to stay. All people are so kind. The receptionist Pradeep and Alam was so helpful. There was also a steward( in learning) Who helped me with finding airtal shop for simcard. And the housekeeping make Every day my room so good clean. Thanks to all of You. And the persons Who gives negative comments here about the hotel i think they are just disturbed. I visit all sort of 5 star hotels But this one is 3/4 star But is very clean and the rooms are not less like a room of a 5 Star hotel. I advice anyone to choose this hotel . Its hygienic hotel. The aircondition works soo good. The WiFi was also good, Only when You are in the toilet there is the WiFi not so good, but in whole the room is WiFi excellent.. You can 24 hours order your food, That was soo good. Best service ever. I Will come always in your hotel when i am in Mumbai. I Will miss all of You. Thanks for your warm Welcome.
Great option away from South Mumbai”
My first time to India, I stayed at the Trident, a classic "Western" hotel in South Mumbai. I wanted to try something different this time, something more "local", so decided on The Oriental Residency. The hotel is great in the things that matter most to me - the room and bathroom were clean and tidy, the air conditioning worked great, the staff were friendly and accommodating, and the wireless worked well (fast enough for eMail, browsing, but not for streaming video). The neighbourhood is typical Mumbai, bustling and crowded, but the hotel is tucked on a relatively quiet place on a cross street. It's a short walk to Khar Road station and a Rs 10, 30-minute ride to Churchgate. I loved "commuting" and getting more of the local feel of the city. If you want the luxury of the Trident/Taj, this isn't the place for you. But if you want a good, clean, comfortable hotel for a more local experience, and at a great price, it's the perfect spot.
Exceeded expectations both staff and hotel”
The staff were so friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Thank you to Mr Christopher and Deepak for organising our Mumbai tour with our excellent driver and guide Bhim. Hotel in perfect location for shops and restaurants but area not too loud or busy. Thanks to the smiling security gentlemen Ganesh and Deepak for sharing a few laughs. So glad we chose the Oriental residency hotel.
My stay in The Oriental Residency Hotel in Mumbai was superb. Airport pick-up service was on time. The restarurant in hotel was superb! I had the best breakfast and diner, the stuff was really friendly and helpful. The location is close to the airport.
Great hotel especially service”
A great hotel for the price and nicely located in Khar West. Its about a 30-40 mins drive to south Mumbai but this is fine as there are plenty of shops, bars and resto around the hotel area. The breakfast was great and a decent variety. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, modern and very inviting. I would stay here again for sure.
Perfect location/room and staff etc”
The hotel is like a 5 stars hotel. Very close to linking road Bandra 3 minutes walking alle Shops max Donald and Kfc also so near. Hotel staf en Personal very helpfull. I read Some people write here that the room is small and noise from outside comes in the room and he cant sleep. Well I think the person who write that had is very old fashioned en irritated. He can than go for expensive hotel. Believe ne the hotel is just perfect, You here noise but is just normally. You are in mumbai so If You dont want voices dont go to mumbai. I am always take 5 star hotels But this 4 star hotel was perfect. Room clean, toilet cleans and all just Perfect. And the room price was also perfect. My. I stayed ik room 502. I Will Thanks all of You Who helped me and sure the room cleaners who cleaned every day my room. If I come ever back. I take this same hotel. It was just perfect. Oh Yes the food of the hotel is also good and the restaurant is 24 hours open. I orders every night. It was so yammy.
Nice hotel with welcoming and friendly staff”
i had a very nice experience during my 10 day stay at oriental residency hotel. welcoming and friendly hotel staffs and hotel manager. excellent food in the restaurant. clean rooms and good customer service. airport pickups and dropping off services is very efficient. thanks for making our stay memorable! much appreciated the services provided by the hotel!
Value for money”
Staff were very welcoming, room service staff were especially great at addressing requests. The hotel is well located but you need to let taxi drivers know its next to Khar telephone exchange else they won't find it! We had a problem with a very smelly toilet in our first room and the room service staff addressed this asap and followed up. We were then offered a room change as soon as one became available. Both rooms faced the main road and with it being central Mumbai there was a lot of outside noise from taxis etc but it wasn't a major problem as we expected this having read other reviews. Well worth the price.
Soulfull experience. ”
The hotel is typically a business hotel but families can have a pleasant stay as the shopping joints are just 3 min away on the linking road . The restaurant soul would have a special mention as the food was ecstatic . The two chefs are doin a great job , the indian , oriental as well as pot dishes were worth tasting . A special mention about the rooms , they are clean with very comfy beds but needs a little more decor and maintainance . All together a very sound service and we enjoyed our stay in oriental residency .
1 week in Bandra - Mother and Son from New Zealand.”
Overall the location is excellent between linking road and SV road in bandra, a good area of Mumbai with plenty of shopping, public transport and eating options. The hotels restaurant - SOUL is great value for money with a 3 course meal in indian food costing around 1100-1200 rupees for two people - considering it is a hotel restaurant. The buffet breakfast was average at best but had all your regular needs. Being from NZ and used to english breakfasts, I was disappointed to find most of the breakfast options were indian food, however you can get cereal, pancakes, fruit juices and eggs/toast. As for the rooms, I was a little disappointed at first as they are very average and dated. They have all the amenities you need, good AC, the bathroom was passable but not great. The beds were clean and fine but not luxurious and the sheets felt old. Overall an average hotel for an ok price, has all the essentials, good service, the strength of the hotel is probably it's central location.
Great place to stay in mumbai”
Booked in for four days stayed 7 days a little expensive but Mumbai is is expensive so was value for money . The staff were fantastic every little query was answered and fixed quickly. Smiles and attention from all staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast buffet suits plain tastes through to indian food lovers. The beds are king size and soft. We changed rooms and found all were spacious and clean, bathroom comes with full range of consumables and great hot water and pressure. Hotel is in a quiet area only 100mtrs to main road and shops it's central mumbai. Everyone says stay at Colaba but after visiting there you only need to see it once with a tour and we found staying out of the hectic area easy to day trip elsewhere. They have a free airport transfer? Others have said it was hard to find but they have a new sign out front. We would stay at this hotel again.
A comfortable no nonsense place to stay ”
When we selected this place on Agoda, we were not sure of what to expect, but after our stay we can confidently claim that this is one of the best places to stay when you are traveling as a couple for a short trip. While our check in was at 2pm they were gracious enough to accommodate an early check in, they also accommodated our request for an extension till 6PM (which was paid of course), they made the whole process stress free. The rooms are what you would expect at a business hotel and the standard room was quite comfortable. The hotel is located at a comfortable distance from both Khar and Bandra stations so sightseeing is easy. They have a decent breakfast spread and Mr. Nelson and team go the extra length to accommodate all your requests, they even prepared items which were not a part of the breakfast menu. The security folks are very helpful and give good tips on travel mode and shopping areas. Linking and hill road are at walking distance so your shopping is sorted.
Clean room, great service”
mumbai is one city that can charm you and put you off at the same time...for a business traveller who doesn't want to spend too much money on five stars there isn't a great mid range chain in andheri/ khar area... frankly, i wasn't expecting much from the hotel but was pleasantly surprised on some fronts. the room is small( i don't anyway expect bigger rooms in mumbai) but very neat and clean and so is bathroom, bed is very comfortable, airport pickup provided, limited but nice breakfast. the service is among the fastest and the best that i have ever witnessed..... this is what a business traveller needs, so i would say it exceeded my expectations. if i plan to stay in khar area again, i will surely consider this one again...
A Pearl amid the squalor of Mumbai”
The road in which this hotel is situated is squalid in the extreme, our hearts sank. But once inside, the hotel is clean, bright and very welcoming. Our room was comfortable, bright and had tea making facilities. Comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. The Soul Café was excellent. Brilliant staff and tasty food. The prices were reasonable. The reception staff went out of their way to get us train tickets to Pune, for which we were very grateful. This is a good place to stay in Mumbai, but you cannot walk in the streets there.
Worth every penny! My family and I had a great stay in this hotel. Would definitely recommend to everyone who intend to visit Mumbai. Location is very strategic and safe for ladies travelling alone. From security to receptionist and the manager, everyone was very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was scrumptious, we look forward to every morning. We had a birthday dinner in the hotel and received a complimentary dessert from hotel management. Special thanks to Mr. Nelson & Mr .Christoper for the hospitality.
Perfect start for our india tripp”
We enjoyed our stay in the Oriental Residency. The stuff was very friendly and attentiv. Manager and stuff made us feel very welcome. Clean rooms and very comfortable beds. breakfast tasted good. We were very surprised by the restaurant. Good value for many and excellent quality. This was a perfect start for our india trip.
The food was delicious and the staff was very gracious. I wish The Oriental Residency Hotel would move to Colaba near the Gateway of India. That would be the icing on the cake.
Exceptional staff and stay.”
We booked this hotel for 10 days, due to its locality to nearest clothing stores in Santa Cruz and Bandra. I was overwhelmed with the hospitality that was provided by each staff member.s, especially Mora, Deepak, Nelson and many others. The food quality was outstanding and very reasonable. I definitely recommend this hotel and the service that was provided. Will be back!!
Quality and Affordable Property”
Pros: Clean room (including bathroom), relatively good location within Bandra (you can walk or take a cab/tuk tuk to a few nice cafes, restaurants and Anytime Fitness gym within the area BUT if you want to go to South Mumbai it’s about an hour in traffic so make that visit a day trip), restaurant is decent (had lunch there when I arrived) and for the most part staff is good (except they do suffer from what I call “professional unhelpfulness” in that they’ll try to assist you in the nicest possible way but ultimately it doesn’t help you other than make you annoyed. Con: I booked a one-day driver from the hotel to take me around the city but that person was delayed and then canceled on me. The hotel offered their car and another driver but it wasn’t the best experience (he wouldn’t always stop at certain locations and didn’t know a few places I wanted to go).
