Hello Community,

I am trying to identify laundromats in a number of cities in India. Can anyone help?

I am a Relocation Manager for a large multinational company based in the U.S. We have some executives and their families (spouses, partners, kids, etc.) moving to quite a few cities around the world later on this year. It is part of my job to help the families sort out some details.

Self-service laundromats are the first thing on my to-do list. I need to identify:

1) Self-service or coin-operated laundromats only (where they can wash/dry their clothes themselves).
2) Larger machines (and the more the better).
3) 24 hour laundromats (this is preferable but not required - longer hours of operation are better).

Here are my cities:

Mumbai / Calcutta / Delhi / Chennai / Bangalore / Hyderabad / Pune / Ahmadabad / Surat / Kanpur

If anyone in the community has any reliable knowledge about any laundromats in any of those cities, please let me know. It would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Culture of self service laundromats is not popular in India. However you can find out dry cleaners and laundry people but then those are not self service and are costlier.

Its advisable that the families coming to India look out for service apartments or look for a furnished flat including a washing machine.

Hope it helps you.

Go to Google maps, search for Mumbai, type 'laundromats' into 'search nearby' & see what pops up.

Thank you both for your comments & suggestions. My team and I greatly appreciate it as we are trying to support our employee's families who are planning on coming to India later this year.

I know this is a old thread but:

Try 5ASec

Also in every 'building' that you live in, a 'Dhobi' or traditional washerman comes, collects the clothes, washes/irons and returns the within two days. This service is better than a laundromat and cheaper. Plus you don't have to visit the laundry. Plus it provides local jobs.

Ditto theloststory.

No one uses a laundromat in India. Someone does it for you.

As the Relocation Manager have you ever even been to India?...
