I had come from a beautiful clean and friendly hotel in another town, for which I paid exactly the same price as Hotel Khems. To be honest, I was disappointed with Khems.
The room was comfortable with decent facilities but it was very dark, damp and smelled bad even when I kept the windows open all day. The pillows smelled and I covered them with my clothes when I slept.
There was a problem with the cold water supply to my room which to be fair they did come and fix efficiently. Also the phone was broken so I couldn't use it- but it didn't stop them ringing me on it constantly! And I was woken up early on Sunday morning by a member of staff ringing and banging at the door- apparently just to hand me a newspaper. Oh and also, no wi-fi at all in this hotel.
The restaurant food I found below standard and served on dirty plates/glasses. I tried it but then decided to eat elsewhere.
On the plus side- the reception staff were helpful, the hotel has a generator for power cuts, the shower (once it worked) was amazing.
I have been travelling in India for a while and have stayed at some really wonderful places but sadly this wasn't one of them.
