I was staying at a near by Hotel. I had to extend the stay, but rooms were not available. So i walked in to this Patliputa Exotica. Luckily or unluckily a room was available. My very first encounter was bitter. Since i didn't enter with my luggage, the hotel security guard, thought i was a Big Bazar customer and just loitering around. His greeting was "Kya chahiye"? what do you want?. I said, i want to find a room in the Hotel. His next question was, do you know that this is a five star hotel?. I realized that, it was a mistake to enter a hotel pretending to be a five star hotel, clad in simple jeans and a T-Shirt. Any way, i dismissed the arrogance of the security and pushed my way to the reception. Thanks, to the good reception by the staff, i decided to go ahead and try out the Hotel. First thing first, the massive glittering building you see in here is not entirely that of the Hotel. It actually belongs to Big Bazar. Hotel is located few floors on top of the Big Bazar. For a business traveler, big bazar is more of a nuisance than a facility.
Hotel room is well spaced with reasonable amenities. Food is reasonably good. House keeping staff seem to be trained to be frugal. View from the room depends on your luck and i was not the lucky one. Wireless internet services are totally unreliable and absence of a walking space and other facilities are a big disappointment. I know that, the hotel tariffs in Patna are very high. Yet, i as astonished at the audacity of this hotel to charge five star tariff with such 2 star facilities!. Given its location, construction design, etc. i see no chance of this hotel can improve. I'll completely avoid this hotel in my future trips to Patna.
