We stayed at Manjunatha residency as we had come to visit our relatives who were living in the neighbourhood. Manjunatha residency is in the heart of Jayanagar 4th Block, but is away from much of the noise and sound. Not many people are even aware that there is a service apartment among the line of residential buildings in this quaint neighbourhood.
We stayed here for around 17 days (on and off as we were travelling to different places) and found it a decent , clean and safe stay without any major issues.
It is a good place to stay and it might be value for money if you can use the kitchennete to cook - but we never used this facility. There didn't seem to be any room service or other dining facility there, but there are a number of restaurants at walking distance. You get coffee/tea served in your room - but I would recommend going to any restaurant for a coffee as what is served is instant coffee with lot of milk - and is no way comparable to the filter coffee you get in most restaurants.
The manager here was a guy called Prashant and he was very helpful. He helped with any transport bookings though I have to advice you that they transport arranged were a wee bit on the pricier side. Example - From Jayanagar to Railwaystation (Jn) costed Rs 800 in a Toyota and Jayanagar to Airport costed Rs 1800 again in a Toyota.
We usually went out in the morning and came back just to sleep around midnight. The rooms were always cleaned and tidied everyday. The linen and towels might not be as soft and fine as a good hotel - but neverthless they were clean. Any additional requests was immediately catered to. By the way Prashant is a very pleasing and nice mannered person and will always help in any way possible.
Overall I was happy with the place as it served my purpose. The reservation process can be improved and when we were there the prices of the room were increased - but on our request they kept it the same as our initial booking. I think with the latest price rise - the rooms might be a bit pricey for long stayers. They should come up with some good package deals for longer staying guests.
Hope to stay here again!!
