I stayed on two occasions in a deluxe room, once in the ground floor and the second time in the first floor. The room and furniture are old fashioned. The AC was working but atimes leaking. The toilet was small with the regular fixtures. But most of the time the flush and taps were leaking. Room service was poor. The room in the ground floor did not have any windows. The ones in the first floor had one but could not be opened. The wardrobe was smelly. The sheets in the bed were white and clean. But the quality of the pillow and the mattress was very bad—hard. There were no coffee/tea makers in the room. The hotel does not have a restaurant. Food (vegetarian) was outsourced from a restaurant across the road. But that was tasty. It is better to walk down to that restaurant and eat or pick up the food. The personnel in the reception had problems with the language as most of them spoke in Tamil or Malayalam. English was understood. The hotel does not accept credit cards or cheques only cash. As the hotel is located on a busy road, noise pollution is high. But the noise decibel inside the room in the inner side of hotel reduced the sound. Instruct the reception not to clean the room in your absence. Some of the room service personnel expected tips. The hotel is bearable for a stay of a day or two for the price. Travel desk is non-existent. One can pick up any transport if one emerges out of the room as it is centrally located on a busy thoroughfare.
