This is an excellent luxury property situated on the busy Mumbai-Agra Road with a very big swimming pool & a green lush garden. Had requested for the pool facing room at the time of the check-in which was given easily. The check-in was very smooth and hassle free and had checked in with my spouse. Since the hotel itself is very vast hence the rooms are very spacious and clean. The washrooms are also big and clean. The buffet breakfast was an absolute heaven since it had a wide variety of dishes which included Different cuisines like north Indian, south Indian, maharashtrian & continental dishes. The WiFi is free at the hotel. The staff was very helpful and courteous and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was comfortable.
It is the finest hotel in Nasik! Ambience is grand and rooms are luxurious. Many activities like swimming pool, club house and spa is there to make your day happy. You can get all the luxuries at affordable price, food is fabulous and sky view from the hotel terrace is must watch experience.
Perfect location and well maintained with good management
Great location, good parking and room facilities. Well educated and cooperative staff will surely visit again if get a chance. First of all like the most of this is that its location which is bit outside of city which surely save lot of time from traffick, for travellers like me, a well managed parking space which make me happy because many hotels does not have proper parking making me worried about my car, but at express inn you do not face such problem. It is exactly situated on Mumbai Agra highway which is another good part, people can easily go to either Mumbai or Pune/Shirdi from this location The room cleanliness of hotel especially of rooms were very nice, after submitting the Ids we get rooms immediately no waiting for rooms and cleaning or preparing etc of rooms which save our lot of time. Hotel staff and management was very well behaved and having helpful nature answer my many questions without any problems and they seems happy to help all travellers too. We choose balcony room at 5th floor having spectacular views of mountain called pandavleni means pandav caves this caves are 2000 years old buddhist caves you can see it clearly from balcony of hotel, in monsoon clouds surrounds this hill creating great natural scene. All kind of different food is available at this hotel even we can order food in room via intercom, we are vegetarian so ordered only veg food which was well prepared and delicious too. There was AC in our room but we never need it as climate of Nasik is cool in especially in winter so my advice to all travellers is that think twice before booking AC rooms in advance in winter as this might saves your many bucks. I personally think the room rent is a little higher side but the service and facilities which you get in such price range is totally justifies it in other words we can say a you can not get better then this. There was a swimming pool too but none of us dare to dive in as it was winter but pool was well maintained water was clean nice to see that too If you are planning to stay in this hotel I surely recommend you to visit pandav cave very close to this hotel a series of carved buddhist caves which are must visit site and just under that hill there is dadasaheb phalke film park both adults and children get entertained in this park secondly vilholi Jain temple opposite of decathlon sports complex at Mumbai Agra road. Both are good tourist spots near from express inn hotel finally few words I think this hotel is having all those facilities and amenities which are needed and required by the travelers I enjoyed a lot in this hotel and willing to stay surely in future too if get a chance I hope this data could help you to prepare for this destination, thanks for Reading wishing you all happy journey in advance.
Overall experiece is fantastic. I am staying in this hotel since last 5-7 years. Whenever I visited Nashik alone or with family I am staying in this hotel and advising other to follow and take home the same experience.
Best Experience: Inside the room... atmosphere... really good. Floor, ceiling, almirah, walls are really good. For Room Services some time may take little more time but \'Sabra Ka Fal Meetha Hota Hai\' finally you will satisfied as me. All staffs of the Hotel is cooperative, caring.
Worst Experience: Not yet found as of now to write.... and I hope the staff is not going to give any chance for the same.
We stayed at Express inn during a weekend break at Nashik. Having read such good reviews we checked in to the hotel with high hopes. The hotel claims to be a 4 star property and certainly charges rates which are akin to that The rooms are okay with standard fare amenities that you expect of a decent hotel. We took the express rooms which are in another wing of the hotel. The two wings are connected only on the second floor. So you basically need to take 2 elevators to get to your room if you are not on the second floor (or walk out of the hotel and take an elevator from the other wing behind). Odd but acceptable Then starts the nightmare. The entire staff seemed to have this 'attitude' about them. Getting them to listen to you required you to speak in a tone which is just short of shouting. Never was any grouse answered satisfactorily We ordered for a sandwich while sitting by the pool. 30 minutes after the order was placed someone comes and tells us they can serve it by the pool !! This when a group of people were having dinner right by the pool. However we were hungry, so we went to the restaurant. But no food. Apparently they cancelled the order without informing us. It took another 30 minutes for the food to finally arrive. In spite of all this, the restaurant manager did not have an ounce of courtesy to apologise for the goof up The breakfast buffet was another flop show. The place is way too small for the capacity of the hotel. And the hotel was probably packed because it took us 20 minutes just to get a table. The food tasted stale and there was no variety. There were no servers to even offer tea/coffee They offer a 500 discount voucher for the O2 spa in the hotel. The damm spa didn't have a free slot of the entire 2 day stay. And the funny part, we never saw any guest taking a spa therapy. So either they were lying on our faces, or didn't have and staff Overall, one of those properties I will not set foot in again. Any my advise to you, save yourself the money and nightmare, stay at different hotel.
