A [female] friend of mine will soon be visiting the US consulate in Mumbai and is looking for a decent budget hotel in the vicinity. If all the hotels nearby are high-end ones, then what are the next best options in a radius of say 30-45 minutes of travel by taxi?

Mumbaikars, any recommendations in the 2-4k INR range?

Cheers,
Vikram

The US Consulate is at BKC in Mumbai(Bandra Kurla Complex).

If budget permits,then she can stay at Trident or Sofitel within BKC itself.

Otherwise I would strongly reccomend Executive Enclave at Bandra West http://www.executiveenclave.com/.Walking distance to all the eateries and shopping places and evenings can be well spent and Bandra is a lovely place to spend evenings.

Else she can conveniently stay at hotels in Parle,kurla,santacruz etc.

Hotel Regal Enclave at Khar should fit the bill.The rooms are spacious, the b'fast spread is decent and you get complimentary pick up & drop at the airport as well.

Couple of bhpains have stayed here on my advice and were satisfied.

Waseem.

Hi has anyone stayed in hotels in kishangarh. I need to take a night break there. Needless to say the place should have decent parking and be suitable for family as I'm travelling with my family.

Thanks

Mhow there is Colonel's Upahaar 07324 274 452.Very good place to stay.Google it up for pictures of the place.

Else Indore has plenty of places-Sarovar Portico.shreemaya,lemontree,radisson blu,Country Inn

Lucknow:Piccadilly,Best Western,Taj are all good

Country Inn by Carlson is the best and is on the NH8 itself.

Royal Heritage is a tried and tested property. Ample secure parking, suitable for families.

http://www.1589hotels.com/1589-hotel...ge-kishangarh/

Located on the NH8 it is 1/2 kms. from the junction where NH 79 meets NH8 and both convert in to the Kishangarh Jaipur expressway. It is also close to the turnoff for the Kishangarh - Bhatinda (onwards to Leh) mega highway.

Hey Ranjitp1, thanks for the tips on the stay. Maybe, I am being too optimistic but I am hoping to easily cross Indore by late noon, so stopping at Mhow would make my 2nd day drive longer. As for stopping in Indore, I would really appreciate if you could help me with Hotels on the Highway itself, but a big thanks anyway.

Hi Guys,
I'm visiting Kanchipuram with family of 4 this weekend(Friday and Saturday) and have a few queries.
1. A good accomodation hotel/lodge at Kanchi to stay with food or near to a good food place. We are pure veggies
2. I plan to take the GQ till vellore via Krishnagiri and take deviation at Kaveripakkam to Kanchi. Is my route good in a WagonR?
3. Also, i plan to start at around 4 pm from Kanchi to Bangalore. Is this time good to start?
4. As i plan to start from our house near Kanteerava Studio near Nandini layout at around 5 or 5.30 am. Kindly suggest me good hotels on the way to have breakfast.
5. Also, if i get a tour iternary of which temples to visit at Kanchi would be of great help.

Kindly guide me regarding the above queries.
Thanks very much in advance.

Regards,
Ramki

Thanks very much ranjit. GRT and MM hotels are very costly to say its all above 2.5K/night. My budget is around 1.5K as we would not be staying in the hotel very much as would be visiting places. How is this hotel sreesakthiresidency.com ? Anybody stayed here?

Thanks for the restaurants. Are the road works still going on on the GQ after Krishnagiri still?

Regards,
Ramki
