Residency Hotel Andheri
Travel Blogs from Mumbai (Bombay)
Flight back from Kochi to Mumbai, where we stayed for one night in Residency Hotel Andheri near the airport. We were very lucky that the man at the front desk liked us and gave us an upgrade to a brand new "Club Room" with a huge bathroom that was separated only by a long glass wall from the room - 100% guaranteed eye contact :-))
Wow Mumbai, wow!!
I still have to breath deep in while the memories come to me and try to calm my heart.
We arrive at the airport after having 3 flights: Zanzibar - Dar es Salaam, Dar es Salaam – Muscat and Muscat – Mumbai. On the last flight we had a very nice chat in the plane with an Indian man who gave us a …
Hello Guys and welcome to our first blog.
Have been in Mumbai for 2 days now and only plucked up the courage today to go outside the hotel!

TravelPod Member ReviewsResidency Hotel Andheri Mumbai (Bombay)
We arrived early from our flight and we could have the room already at 9am. The room was from the standard category, but nicely decorated, clean, with a bath-tube and tv, where we could have a taste of bollywood. Due to the monsoon it started raining inside te room through the window, this wet the carpet, we mentioned this at the reception and we got transfered to a Luxury room on the 7th floor with beautiful view on Mumbai. The breakfast was included in the price, and was nice with western and Indian choice, we also had the buffet dinner which was very good. Close to the airport, the airport transfer was also excellent!
