Upon arrival we were shown into a nice room with two large Beds, modernly furnished but a little run-down, like a lot of hotels in India. Upon inspecting the sheets, we realized that they did not look just a bit gray, but that they were actually dirty, they had not been changed since the last customer or even customers! Upon notifying the reception of this condition, we received a polite smile and a “we will change the bedding for you”. And promptly, somebody came to do just that: change the blanket covering, but not the pillow-covers or bed sheets. “You want that change too?”, “Yes, please, we would like a clean bed.” Despite this process taking at least half an hour we ended up with clean beds. It was clear, that the bathroom had not been cleaned more thoroughly than being hosed down completely, but hey, this is India! The rest of the stay was uneventful, only later did we realize that the room description on the booking site did not match the room (i.e. no balcony, no safe), though this was not an issue for us.
