I arrived at Rourkela late at night, there was hardly any time or energy left to search for good hotels so I requested the autowala to take me to a decent, clean hotel. He brought me to Hotel Brindaban, a moderately decent hotel with better than average rooms.
Rooms were clean and bed sheets etc. were fresh. The table and stool were very dirty and looked not used for ages. Bathroom was reasonably clean and had hot running water. One thing surprised me was lack of plug points, there was just one - and an old TV was plugged into it, are they trying to save electricity or making sure the guests do not use their laptops or other gadgets!
Breakfast was on the house, it had the usual variety of south and north indian items. Tasted a bit salty but overall quality was reasonable. Dinner served in the room was expensive and was too spicy to my liking even though I had requested for as plain food as possible. Services are slow and can definitely improve.
A better than average hotel for short duration stays.
