We booked this property instead of Sunder Palace Guest House located just around the corner. Both properties have views of the Hathroi Fort. Sunder Palace upped it's room cost for the holidays and this place was a little bit cheaper.
The room was clean and plain. It smelled of fresh paint. When we asked for a different room they told us none was available. We regretted prepaying for the three day. The best thing I can say about the place is the bathroom was clean. There weren't any side tables for the bed. A small table was placed awkwardly in the corner under the TV for the phone. There was a small seating area, but the whole place was bland and tiny.
The lock to the door didn't work very well. We had to continually check it. Once when I came out of the bathroom from the shower I saw someone had pushed in open a centimeter and was peeking in. I slammed it shut. My friend swore that he had closed it. You could hear almost everything that was going on in the room next to us.
The room service left something to be desired. We waited three hours for food, and then were told they were out of everything. Terms the conditions on the prepaid receipt stated "4. Outside Food is strictly not allowed in Room," so you are stuck. We finally got some food, but three hours is far too long to wait. I could of had take away delivered more quickly.
Over all I am not impressed. I wished we had just spent the extra money and stayed someplace else.
