Which self respecting hotel would choose a sentence like this to serve as a name?
As the name implies unabashedly, this hotel makes no bones of using the Hilton tag as its crutches for getting business. Which by itself is ok if it gets the business. But guests would feel a bit less cheated if the hotel was able to live up to the Hilton tag. And this is where the whole deal falls short. The Hilton tag serves no purpose other than jack up the rates. Guest satisfaction takes a hit due to high expectations.
Hotel EROS is actually a pretty decent hotel (if the crutch was not there) for the normal business traveller, with a 5 star lobby & restaurants and 3.5 or 4 star rooms, at best. I stayed here for one week during the last week of Feb 2012.
I stayed in the King Executive room on 5th floor. The room & toilet was not 5 star by any stretch of imagination. The bed was good. Iron board & iron was provided. Lounge access was included, but the high tea spread was dismal. Internet was at extra cost.
Complimentary breakfast was of high quality. There is a special section for Japanese breakfast.
Conference room facility is also top class. We used the Governor's conference room (20 pax) for 6 days from 9:30 am to 7:00 pm. However, I highly recommend the hotel to change the chairs. They are the most uncomfortable meeting room chairs that I have ever come across.
The Reception, Concierge & Travel Desk personnel were very warm and helpful.
The neighborhood offers nothing in terms of window shopping or casual strolling in the evening. High point is the proximity of the Lotus Temple, which is hardly one km away. The hotel is well connected by metro & taxis.
If you feel like a quick bite of something which will not burn a hole in your pocket, there is a mini food court & cineplex across the road. You can get McDonald, Subway etc there. Also, Nehru Place market offers bargain shopping for electronic & computer items.
Overall, very average fare at exorbitant rates, if you are a room guest. Excellent fare at 5 star rates if you are a restaurant guest or just a day guest utilizing the facilities.
