We received a warm welcome at Hotel Shompen – our first visit to Andaman. The first room we were shown on the first floor, although absolutely fine, had no view, so we asked to see another room. We were shown room 103 overlooking the street. It was much better. Streetside was not a problem – it was very quiet when we were there. The hotel is located in the middle of the city, so a good 10 – 15 min drive to the Airport (depending on the traffic). The room was large with a very large bathroom and an enormous shower. The water was always hot. Good quality toiletries were provided and strong hairdryer. The wi fi provision in the room was free but had poor connectivity. Bed was large and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and taken in an airy rooftop. There was juice, cereal, fruit (usually melon, apple and banana), bread and toaster, jams. A number of hot, in temperature, Indian type dishes, which changed daily, and a variety of sauces. Rice, masala, noodles, Idly, which we came to love, were all on offer. There was also a resident chef who cooked eggs/omelettes to order. Dinner in hotel was good and tasty with a wide variety of cuisines available, and about same price as in other restaurants. Service for both breakfast and dinner was pleasant & attentive throughout.
