We were on the lookout for a economical 3 star property in the city, with a bath tub facility in the standard rooms. However most of them were only available in deluxe or suite category rooms. This hotel happened at the last moment when we did a random search and it was just perfect to say the least!!
We were picked up at the airport and the experience started from there itself. The lobby though small and quaint, was very well kept and the pleasant fragrance of incense sticks kept wafting throughout the day. The front office staff very efficiently checked us in and all the formalities were completed in less than 10 minutes. The lift being the capsule variety gave us a view of the roads below. Our room was strategically positioned just in front of the lift! The room in itself was very, very comfortable, cozy and well spaced out. The very well positioned sitting area overlooking the huge window was just perfect, for spending a quiet evening over a few drinks and dinner. The bathroom was a compact and pocket size edition which had the bath tub as promised, and was a real boon in the evenings when we just plunged ourselves into it and relaxed, while time flew by.
Room service and the housekeeping staff were very prompt, courteous and ever ready to help us out and assist in all matters. The food quality was very good with a good menu and the curd rice that we ordered, was just perfect, exactly like how I would have at home. the only challenge I would say is that the hotel location being a bit in the interior end of the city, did pose a bit of a challenge the first time when we were returning back after lunch. However, after keeping in mind a few landmarks, we managed quite well.
This hotel would strongly be recommended by me to all the first time travellers to Mumbai on a budget and who wish to combine that along with good service and an overall memorable experience. If given a chance, I would certainly visit and stay at the Suncity Residency once again!!
