We were amused by the positive reviews on the internet (almost all reviews are by tourists from out of India). We called the hotel by phone and asked for a booking.
On arrival, we were offered to have a look at the rooms before checking in. We found that the rooms were neat and with all basic amenities for a comfortable stay.
The tariff is fixed a couple of hundred rupees more for the first second and third floors. We were informed that the difference in tariff for the upper floors is for the views from the balconies of those rooms. However, we did not find the "views" worth for the additional money.
The main catch in this hotel is that there is no room service and there are no televisions in the rooms. It is to be appreciated that these things are being informed in advance before check in, for the guest to decide about opting to stay.
Also, you will not get Indian food from the restaurant attached to the hotel.
Considering the fact that there is no room service, there are no televisions and that the restaurant does not have Indian food, the tariff is not justified.
For same tariff or a few hundred rupees less, many other hotels / homestays are available with better service and amenities.
