“spartan but safe and friendly”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

This rental apt.- style lodging is on the expensive side, but given it's prime location close to a bus terminal, mall, and shops, it's ideal. It's in a residential older part of Bangalore.The nicest thing about this property, is the staff that will run out to the local restaurant and bring back a take-out meal, or deliver milk, water etc. to your apt. The building has beautiful trees in front with a small balcony. Ask for the rooms in front when you book.The only criticism I have is the lack of cooking pots, utensils and shelving. There's a large dept. store called More, within a 5 min. walk where we went to stock up on these items.

Room Tip: ask for the room towards the front with a balcony

I stayed with our family for a month at Manjunatha residency in August 2012. The service is very good and punctual. They clean the apartment everyday. The service apartment is provided with amenities and i even cooked for few days. The people are very nice and helpful. The place is close by to 4th block Jayanagar complex and walkable distance. I had no issues and very safe place. Prashanth (supervisor) is a very nice person and helpful. I recommend people staying at this place. I did not know the place to begin with. Read the reviews in trip advisor and booked the place. It is all worth it !

i stayed in manjunatha residency for a week with my wife and all i could say in one sentence is , it is just the home away from home. its a kinda apartment with bedroom , kitchen with utensils and a hall . its just like u r staying in ur home. hospitality is excellent and you get more than what you pay for the house. its basically in the city centre and good for shopping and evening walks. food.. of course , though u have ccd and other restaurants , one can cook and enjoy the holidays relaxingly. . . . . looking forward once again...

Having arrived from Australia, I stayed at The Manjunatha Residency along with my wife and daughter prior to her wedding in Bangalore between the16th and 27th of January 2012. The rooms we hired were neatly presented and bathrooms were also clean. Room service could be called into clean the rooms, change the sheets as well as to order food and they would willingly clean and change sheets whenever requested. Prashanth and Surraiyya at the reception were very friendly and helpful with info on local travel and utilities. They also arranged for reliable transport at reasonable rates. Mr Naik, the owner takes personal interest in his guests at this serviced apartment, so much so that my daughter felt it was her own home and was loathe to leave the room. We stayed there on our way back for 2 more days. We were cooking our own food at the small kitchen with a single burner gas stove with ingredients procured from super markets close by. The shopping centres, market, malls and the main bus stand etc are within 500 metres away, the location being at the 4th Block, 10th Main in Jayanagar.

The surroundings of the apartment are also clean and quiet. Overall, a very decent place for decent people to happily stay in. Surprisingly there were no mosquitoes around. Most of the residents stay there for days on end and quite a few come there from overseas locations. We saw a few westerners happily liivng and moving around at this apartment. You feel quite safe, secure and well looked after although the size of the rooms is not quite large but adequate for 3 people to stay in one room. We as a family would highly recommend this serviced apartment to people considering a visit to Bangalore. We promised we would write a positive review and my wife insisted I write one by all means.

If you are looking for a clean, dependable staff, excellent value, no frills place to stay in the JayaNagar area, this is it. I agree with the previous reviewer, our experience with the staff was awesome, Prashant, Sundaresh, Nayak (the owner) and the lady front desk person always provided excellent service with a smile.

This is a prefect place to stay if you have family or friends in the neighborhood but would rather have a quiet and a clean place to sleep at night and also host a occasional family/friend

This is the sort of accommodation one is pleased to recommend to friends and business associates. I stayed for a week in mid-June on a visit from Australia. I was given a front balcony position and the quality of the room, bathroom, fittings etc was good. It was also very clean and well-presented. A complimentary fruit basket was provided upon entry.

Manjunatha is situated on a reasonably quiet street with plenty of shady large trees along the road. The building's facade is quite impressive and suggests a good standard of quality.

This type of accommodation is a 'serviced apartment' as opposed to a hotel room - and the price per night is much better - if you are happy to live without hotel extras such as perhaps a pool, restaurant etc. There is a shop at the next corner and autos always nearby. The lady in charge during the daytime is Mrs Saba and she is very capable and efficient. I needed a taxi at 3am to the airport and she ensured that the driver was there on time and for a reasonable cost.

My recommendation would be to deal with her at all times as she also understands and speaks english well. I found her to be reliable and honest. Although I generally found the other staff helpful, the only otherwise (small) negative experience was when I asked another young man who sometimes manned the office in her absence, for assistance. Perhaps he was unaware that this was not my first time in India - and any one who has visited India knows that even locals have to be careful to not be ripped off by those trying to make a bit of extra money. I frequently travelled by auto and knew the local minimum cost to be Rs14. I requested an auto and was told by this young man that the minimum local cost was Rs30! Fortunately, the auto driver later agreed the fare is indeed only Rs14. It was unfortunate that this single incident occurred to an otherwise great stay - but it was minor and I include it only to share how that no matter where you stay in India, be alert.

If you're looking for a great place to stay in the south of Bangalore, where the extras of a hotel are not needed, I would highly recommend this place. The cost per night for a single bedroom will be in the range of around Rs 1300 - 1600 and is well worth it. The quality is that of a much higher-rated hotel.
