Because this was my first time in India, I did not know how to find another hotel, get my money back for the other nights, etc. There are open wires hanging out below the mirror in the bathrooms, tvs useless- with no cable to even attach to the wall, an exploding light bulb above our bed and a faucet in the bathroom that occasionally loosened causing water to flow. We heard that the building was built through bribes as it is an illegal location; It overshadows an ancient astronomical observatory, thus rendering it useless. Also, the power goes out regularly and the wifi is intermittent. I did not know that you could reset the a/c yourself so spent a long sweaty night there. The kitchen for the restaurant was between the stairs and the diners; it was a bit disconcerting as you saw flames shooting up and hoped they could douse them. I could not wait to get out of this place.
