The photos that are shown on trip adviser are not the pictures of this hotel. I checked the address and it is the same as the hotel that we stayed at but these pictures are different.
The check in process was fast and the staff was friendly enough. However, they put us in a room that was adjacent to their area of renovation going on and there was constant hammering and banging. We requested another room and they kindly gave us one which was nice but I'm not sure why they thought anyone would want to be in a room next to all that noise. We ran out of toilet paper several times and had to use tissue which was luckly in the bathroom. They didn't leave you a spare and the rolls aren't very big. They did not have in-room hair dryers but you could ask for one at the front desk.
The lounge was smoking only so not a place we cared to hang out. The pool area was nice though and the fitness center was just ok. The equipment was decades old and no eliptical.
Internet at the business center to use their computers was cheap but not always working (5,000 Rupia for 15 min). But be careful if you go over the 15 min even by 1 second they charge you for the entire next 15 minutes. Free wi-fi in the rooms though if you have your own computer.
Breakfast buffet was good and served until 10 AM which was nice. Many of the hotels we've been staying at have only served until 9 AM.
I have a lot of downsides but all in all for the area I think it's a decent deal and would recommend.
