The hotel staff, especially Mahesh and Tarang were very courteous and helpful. We (3 friends) arrived late and they stayed up till 3:30am for our check-in and allotted us a superior room when we had booked deluxe. The room was quite spacious, neat, clean, with a comfortable bed and the sleep quality was good - no traffic noise etc. The... More

When we arrived at the hotel the staff was waiting for us and we got checked in right away. We booked the deluxe room but there was no refrigerator or safety box... More

I only ended up at the Lavinia Villa because I missed the listings for recommended guest houses in my Rough Guide. The room did not disappoint.

Firstly,... More
