We stayed here for 2 nights (not consecutive) in December. The apartment itself is clean but fairly basic, there's a cold water shower, a squat toilet, a reasonable sized bedroom and a kitchen if you wish to prepare your own food. The bed was slightly short for me (I'm 6ft) when stretching my legs out.
The real reason to stay here is because of Sachin, he is a fantastic host and will go out of his way to make sure your stay is comfortable. He is more than happy to be your personal tour guide and you can really make use of his local knowledge. Sachin assisted us in booking train tickets, taxis and came to dinner with us a couple of times, ensuring that we didn't get ripped off and knew exactly what we were doing/getting.
When we first arrived we met Sachin at his home (5-10 minute walk from the apartment), we had the pleasure of meeting his parents who made us feel very welcome, providing us with some food and drink.
The location is good, you can get a taxi from the airport, Sachin will advise you what to tell them regarding directions. The train station is walking distance and that makes it easy to get around, there is a nice park nearby and plenty of decent places to eat.
I would advise communicating with Sachin before you arrive, if you let him know what sort of things you want to see and do during your stay he will be able to offer advice and be prepared for your arrival
Thanks Sachin, we hope to meet you again one day
