This hotel is one of the VERY GOOD hotels in India for Business Travellers and only 3 years old.
I am sure because though I have stayed in so many hotels all over the world (work related) last 20 years or so. For example last 1year I have stayed in many hotels Like at Nagoya (Japan), Ulsan (South Korea), Tehran (Iran), In India out of Last 4 months I have stayed 2 months in hotels other hotels are Boutique Hotel Bawa Suites, Hotel Sea Princess, Ramada Powai etc.
I booked in this hotel because place of work is 5 minutes from the hotel. Another good part is next to some of very good hotels in India we find a big slum. This is not the case with Meluha. Location is good. Safety and Security is high priority which is very good. (Address of a friend was not given for security reasons which is good and I was asked to sign a paper saying “NOT REQUIRED “ for items disposed in the bin)
I stayed in this hotel from 27 Feb 2014 until 07 Mar 2014 (Room No 518) which I extended until 09 Mar 2014. (Room No 423). Room No 518 was basic room with good view whereas Room 423 was very specious room with back of apartment view. One interesting thing I observed for first time is room tariff fluctuates quite a bit i.e. from Rs.7500.00 to 18000.00 approx. I paid more for the base room than for the specious room. Difficult to say if it is really value for money. Both rooms I found to be very comfortable. Room 423 had a reoccurring door lock problem i.e. unable to close from outside which was attended every time I complained (3 times). Once I came back to find the door was open after housekeeping cleaned the room because of this problem. Breakfast is very good. Standard for all five star hotels. Lunch mostly I had at place of work. I was not very happy with dinner. There is scope for lot of improvement. For example "If only the fish and chips were like prepared in "Santosa, Singapore etc. Suggest check out the Fish Koliwada prepared at Hiranandani restaurant opposite to China Town.
