3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stay was nice, rooms were clean. Only thing which cause lot of problems is the internet connection provided by the hotel. Speed was horribly slow. I could not even check my emails. Food was good and Staff was very co-operative.

Circumstances, I checked-in this hotel, made it a 5 Star for me. But in normal course, I would like to avoid. Rooms were Ok. Receptionists were good. No room service. No Ala Carta service in restaurant. Travel Desk was hopeless, unreliable and exploiting the situation.

The first impression at check in counter itself was very bad. The senior reception lady was rudely behaving with her co staff with anger. It was completely an unprofessional behavior & something not taken rightly by me.

The room, ambience, staff at the counter are all quite good and co-operative. However, the amenities provided are way below the mark. Stayed for 3 days and had several niggling problems. One day newspaper not delivered. Another day milk powder, tea bags, coffee packets, shampoo, soap, etc. not replenished. Room access card worked for only one day and had to... More
