While on a business trip in India I spent 2 weeks in Hotel Mountview. As mentioned in the hotel description it is located in a very nice green and quiet area. But that's all about quietness. The rooms are clairaudient and it is no great effort to listen to discussions in the adjacent rooms. Much worse is the coffee shop where you have breakfast. There were two TV sets in operation, each one running a different program at a quite high volume. Additionally to enjoy the valued guest they lavished you with background music.
The rooms are in fair condition if you are willing to ignore a damaged toilet cover and dark spotted splices in the bathroom. At least there weren't any bugs.
Room service is fair. Service in the coffee shop depends very much on the staff which is present. I met 3 or 4 waiters who delivered a real professional service. The remaing staff is either attracted by the TV program or is overeager and clears away the items you just collected from breakfast buffet while you return to the buffet to get a coffee.
From my point of view the items on the breakfast buffet are not presented in an attractive manner . Taste of indian and continental dishes is below average. Much better is the Rustles restaurant where you get a very good service and tasty food as well.
I had also good experiences with all staff related to bell desk. Laundry service is also good because it was quick and efficient at reasonable prices.
Another bad experience is internet access in Hotel Mountview. You have to buy an internet voucher. The longest period it is valid is 24 hours, starting from your first login. They charge 450Rs for that, which can turn out to be very costly if you need constant internet access for a longer time.
Conclusion: From my point of view only the room rate and the service at Rustles restaurant are at 5 star level. The rest is just avarage. Altough there was no real big issue I will not stay in Mountview again if I should come back to Chandigarh.
