HOTEL BARAHI .. Pokhara.. Nepal
On arrival we firstly encountered a nice small reception area with friendly staff, outside was a nice swimming pool area and all appeared to be going well, however that's where it ended,
On entering our very tatty and dated room (room No 212) the first thing you noticed Is there are no complimentary bottled water, no in room safe, no mini bar or fridge and the furniture is tatty and dirty. Power point next to mirror never worked.
The air conditioning unit was barely working and it took an age to cool the room, that is when it was working, each and every time the electricity flicked the air con turned itself off, not too much of an issue whilst you're awake but during the night the heat woke us up on several occasions.
Our room looked absolutely nothing like the photos on the Barahi's website.
Bathroom,,, oh my goodness here we had a mish mash of units, white sink and WC, pink bath and toilet seat and a blue litter bin, the bath was a disgrace, on first looking at it I thought that it was just filthy and had not been cleaned, but on closer inspection it was apparent that it was actually the fibreglass or material that the bath was made from was so old and worn out it had a shattered cracked look to it.
The bed was relatively comfortable but the pillows felt as hard as a rolled up blanket, I ended up utilising the spare quilt as a pillow.
This hotel is well overpriced. Had I paid around the 45 usd I would not complain but I paid three times that. Their website leads you to believe the in room wifi is included but there is a fee if you want to use in room, folks walking past and having a glass of water downstairs can use it free.
There are many hotels as good as this one for a lot less money. Do not let it's expensive room prices trick you into believing you are getting more than you really are. Also be aware that this hotel prices by per person and not per room .. Ill never stay. Here again. Contact me for photos, you'll not stay here
