although the location of the hotel is a bit remote, the taxis are not expensive, and i suggest you don't discard this hotel from your shortlist. we were a bit concerned about spending extra time for the rides across the city, but in the end of the day this hotel turned to be by far the best stay during our one month long business trip around india.
there is a number of shopping malls nearby if you feel like walking. as for dining, we had all of our meals in the hotel's restaurants, and the food was just perfect. we were actually curious to try all the menu items and find out if all the listed dishes were equally good. it turned to have no drawbacks.
the room was just huge, with a generously sized bathroom. all very clean and well-maintained. the hotel is relatively new, and i really hope they will keep their high standard by the time we go to the next scheduled trip to mumbai.
we had a small incident with our bank card during the check out, as it turned to be not accepted by the payment terminal, and we were told it might be due to a problem with internet connection with the bank, however it was a bit uncomfortable to be looking for alternative solutions short time before the flight. i hope this will be fixed, as many travelers prefer not to be carrying amounts in cash, especially if the trip included other countries and currencies.
