We got to the hotel after 3 weeks of volunteering and sightseeing in Palumpur and Delhi. It was late at night and our train had broken down and turned a 7 hour ride into a 13 hour nightmare.
I had booked this online because it seemed to represent India like no other hotel, and I wanted my grandson to experience all the best of India.
We were greeted by Rica and the other excellent staff, with a lei and a cool glass of mango juice, and shown around the hotel before we were taken to our room. A lounge for laying about in the morning with one of 3 English language newpapers and an available computer, a television and DVD room if you wanted to unwind at night, and a relaxing rooftop restaurant with delicious food. Our room was everything we needed and more. The only area I would address negatively was the weight of the quilt on our bed. It felt good in the cool room, but I had dreams that I was being held down. They probably have alternatives to offer. We spent our last two nights here, and I got my grandson a heavenly massage the night before we were leaving, for about $20.
You tip in a pink elephant that is shared by everyone. We liked that. You will always be glad you chose this hotel.
