US VISA Interview Experience on 17 th Feb 2012 in Mumbai
I had booked the Hotel Crystal residency http://www.crystalresidency.com/. It’s just Diagonally opposite to US Embassy. The rooms are OK although it’s not so excellent. Since You just need to cross only an underground subway to reach the place, You need not worry about traffic etc if You book Your room in this hotel.
1) You can book it online from makemytrip.com using credit card.
2) You can also call them, book it by phone and pay by credit card once You reach there. (This method is better if you are planning to leave the next day night to Bangalore as they give you 24 Hours checkout time)

1. Follow all those mentioned in the other posts.
2. In my case the finger scanning is not done outside building. I was waiting for my turn. Suddenly the guards called me and some two other two token numbers and asked us to directly to go Inside. So my first finger scan is done (only once) in the interview counter only.
3. Interview with manager was really helpful
4. Take few more mok interview with your friends, If you are not feeling confident to answer all the questions.
5. Try to answer the first few questions with much confidence.
