MECH Review: Art and Style inside and the atmospheric lanes of Mumbai’s Apollo Bunder outside, is Abode a few strides from the Gateway of India and The Taj Mahal Hotel, both iconic to Mumbai. Two floors of the Lansdowne House have been restored with skill and detailed aesthetics to create something that is rich in design, passionate in its commitment and innovatively encompassing everything a world traveler would wish in a hotel. It is boutique and quirky, one of those hotels you will first explore and return to again and again. You will miss and want nothing, just align yourself to the concept of The Abode and like us and many people we know you will fall in love. For MECH, The Abode is the perfect fit – the concept, the location, the people and the innovation will tell you why. That Mumbai is our favorite city is only by the way.
Accommodation and Amenities: The 20 Guest rooms in Abode range from their Superior Luxury category with high windows and ensuite bathrooms to Base category rooms which are smaller, well- arranged and spacious with ensuite showers but shared toilets. The two more categories in the interim are Luxury and Simple category both of which are again spacious with ensuite suite bathrooms.
Abode brings art into its rooms in conspicuous doses but in a living-with-it kind of way, where you will be tempted to pick a piece look at it, touch and run your fingers over it, sit on a chair that reminds you of those in your grandparents home, stare into a frame and try to see which part of Mumbai this may be. Abode also married comfort, convention and innovation very well, so you have hi-speed Wi-Fi and coffee/tea stations and room service in all the rooms, you also have luxurious handmade cotton linen, towels and duvets, add to this some of their features like a mobile phone to keep you connected, a stock of everything you may have forgotten to bring and an in-house concierge service to book you a seat or two at a cricket match nearby, astrologer, shopping or a city tours, all you need is ask.
