About 20-30 minutes from the airport. They offer Airport pickup which was quite smooth despite a 30 minute delay to my flight.
Car ride from airport to the hotel was not the best. Driver was way too aggressive and needless excessive use of the horn. In India with all this obnoxious driving one still reaches the destination no more than a few minutes early. So why resort to such ridiculous obnoxious driving at 10pm at night?
Quite straightforward. Well handled. Hotel looked brand new. Friendly staff.
Only 1 elevator. But did not seem like too much of a wait for my 5th floor room.
Yes, it is the 5th floor even though the announcement on the elevator each time is 10th floor! Have not figured that one out yet.
Comfortable, modern design, no view as all windows are opaque. Not even a view of somebodys backyard or traffic.
Poor positioning of AC vents. Blows on your face all night
No fan in the room. No possibility to open a window to let fresh air in. If you are in the room, you have to have the AC on. Not a very green design.
Have to get a ID and password for each 24 hour period. While this is not unusal what is a major pain is that this needs to be entered every time you use the computer. Does not automatically give you 24 hour access.
Next annoyance. The ID and password is for a SINGLE DEVICE. So if you have a SmartPhone or Tablet (who doesnt these days?) you have to get another ID and password for that. Poor choice! They need to make a single ID and password usable by upto 3 devices.
WiFi was unavailable when I checked in, was rectified only the next day. Has been fine since though.
Well appointed and spacious and almost as big as the room. Really funny design to have the cupboard space and the luggage space in the bathroom. European bath fittings worked perfectly.
Well appointed Fitness Center. Have been using it for the past 3 days. Each time I am the only person in the Fitness room.
There are plenty of shelves (empty) shelves outside the Fitness room. Every time I go to use it, someone has to come over and turn the lights on and get the AC going.
The first time I asked for a hand towel to use in the Gym, they looked at me like I was from Mars and was speaking a completely different language.
No water available in the Gym either.
Good marks for the Gym, extremely poor marks for having half a clue on the accessories that go along with a Gym.
Well appointed breakfast. Abundance of staff that are eager to help.
All drinking water is from plastic bottles. Needless addition to waste and environment pollution in the name of convenience.
Only way to get air moving in the room is through AC. No fresh air.
Quite pleased with the stay. Room is comfortable despite a few rough edges. Front desk staff looked after me quite well.
