The Aparupa is a bit run down and in need do a coat of paint in the rooms. The rooms are a decent size and clean enough and the bathroom is a basic Indian ensuite The staff were all very helpful and willing to assist
The location is 100m from the main road so very easy to walk down the hill and get an auto rickshaw to anywhere R50 any where in town
The A/C units are the old fashioned wall mounted ones and a bit noisy but also adequate
We stayed two nights on the way to the islands and one night on the way back

The most disappointing thing is rooms are way too small. We booked two rooms, none had any view except concrete walls. You can barely move freely. Food is okay though. The restaurant is good. Staff are helpful.

I stayed there for 5 Nights. Its little bit costly compared to their service and property. Room size is average and clean. Most of the tourist places in port blaire is just few minutes from the hotel. They have very good room service and also they serve alcohol at room. Food quality is average, but Chinese preparation is good.

It was an average place like any other hotel with basic facilities and we could find similar hotels in Portblair at a low cost (around half of their charges). So, couldn't understand why it has been so overly rated here.

Hotel Aparupa- Spend 4 nites here,

- Prime location: Every tourist spot is 10 mins away so if you could just rent a bike. You could practically roam and visit every place by yourself.

-Vikas who manages the hotel will also help you rent a bike for Rs 600 a day

- Good food: The staff is the restraint too are very helpful

-Wi Fi: This place has Wifi and a computer as well. But Im not sure if it is open to the public

- Decent rooms (can do better) The AC made a lot of noise when on

- Amazin service and xtremly helpfull staff

"Vikas" is an amazin person.He is very proactive and will help you in a jiffy..Water sports, hiring a bike, car etc u name it and it can be arranged- Thank u and ur staff for makin our trip funnn :). There are other people who work with him who are equally helpful.

Room Tip: Best to check your room before you unpack... they will help you in-case you want to change rooms

We stayed at this hotel for five nights in December 2013. The first thing that we found a big plus point of the hotel is its location. It is as prime as it could be but at the same time, a bit distanced from the din and the bustle of the city, as is required to settle in comfortably. Although some people may have issues with size of the rooms, but we found it conveniently roomy for a family of three. Possibly the best thing about the hotel is its staff, with its proprietor-cum-director leading from the front. Not only they had all the information a first timer to Port Blair would have needed, they went out of their way to help us with everything with courtesy, politeness and utmost honesty whenever we asked for. The quality of the food served at ‘Lazeez’ – their restaurant too is better than most of the other places that we experienced during our stay in the island. While the amenities provided in the rooms are okay given the price, but a few renovating touches would fill the gaps wherever they are. Starting from pick up at the airport till our departure, the entire itinerary went as decided devoid of even a slightest deviation. Have no second thoughts while recommending this hotel highly as an amazing place to stay at an unbeatable price.
