Room - I stayed in a DLX room that was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Great room amenities - large TV with lots of international channels, heaps of pillows, desk with stationary box, fresh fruit, rain shower AND bath, window connecting bathroom and sleeping area so you can watch TV from the tub, a great selection of shampoo, lotion, bath salt and other complimentary toiletries. You should definitely spend the extra money and book a "lake-view" room as the night skyline of Powai is gorgeous and "hill-view" rooms overlooks the slums.
Service - Incredibly polite and helpful staff, they even recognized me after just a day offering special service whenever possible. Whether at breakfast, at the pool-side or when calling for the concierge, everyone was just wonderful. Extra Tip: The room-service is amazing. They will take a rolling table into your room and serve all their in-house restaurant food right at the foot of your bed!
Hotel Amenities: This hotel has it all. Spa, Beauty Salon, Gym overlooking the lake, big outdoor Pool with Bar, lots of Restaurants (Chinese/ Italian/ Indian/ and more), popular night-Lounge, Convention Center and even a Limousine Service! Everything is very nicely maintained and operated. The Spa offers a lot of nice treatments but could use some rules regarding "quiet surroundings".

"cleanest, most friendly and genuine, most helpful"
i couldnt have been more pleased with my stay here. all employees werent just nice so that they would get a tip, they are very genuine and sincere. this is the hotel that i recommend for all my family, close friends, everyone that i meet. their pool is very nice and has a lot of space to lay out and tan, the weight room is small but has nice equipment to get a full good workout in, the rooms themseleves are very very nice and clean! nice decor, furnishings, bathroom and shower are very very nice as well. cannot beat the quality for the price anywhere in mumbai. i was taken to a few other hotels by the taxi driver once i missed my flight, and comparitively they were dumps compared to The Residence Hotel, and the other hotels cost the same and more for much much less quality. I will not stay at any other hotel in Mumbai thus far. I will always stay at this Hotel when in Mumbai. While I was in the pool I spoke with a young women from Denmark that has been traveling all over India for a month. This hotel was her 5th hotel in Mumbai. She told me she stayed at more costly 5 star hotels and The Residence Hotel was by far her favorite. They also have an optional breakfast buffet in the morning fosr an extra $7USD. It is a very wide selection of food, fruit, and a chef making eggs, omlets of your choice at your request. Awesome Hotel, I greatly look forward to going back.

We're currently staying at this hotel, and it's my second time (5th trip to Mumbai in total). It's new, it's incredibly clean, it's on great grounds. We have had absolutely no problems with airport transfers or getting around (mainly to Hiranandani Gardens shopping area, with KFC and two supermarkets) via auto rickshaw for a mere 30 rupees per trip. Breakfast is great, bar staff are fantastic. Considering how expensive accommodation in Mumbai is, this place is a STEAL. If you need to visit south Mumbai (around Colaba), I'd stay in that vicinity as staying anywhere else can result in you being stuck in traffic for 2 hours just to get there.

I stay in hotels 3 nights a week in the US so that is my baseline of comparison. The Beatle was generally OK in every category, but nothing really stands out as really good or bad. The location is excellent in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Mumbai. The breakfast was also really good for a hotel in its price range. The only thing I really disliked is having the toilet and shower in the same stall. Nothing like getting your feet wet to use the toilet to start the morning! Overall, decent value for the price.

This is a relatively small but a clean, well kept hotel with a friendly staff. I moved to this hotel after had an unpleasant experience with a different hotel.
From the first moment front desk was very friendly, we booked 2 rooms; standard and a junior suite and they were both clean and well kept. In the morning lower level rooms get slightly noisy but otherwise no major issues.
Wifi is working well in all parts of the hotel, breakfast is open buffet with limited options but has continental and Indian cuisine options which is helpful if you have problems with traditional spicy Indian food. Around the hotel there are small shops and restaurants as well as a grocery store is accessible.
