Staff was very polite at the reception and check in was a fast and good experience. Room was clean and had central air-conditioning and a tea-coffee-maker. Bed linen and towels were soft and clean,
Dinner buffet at the main restaurant Azure was good and offered plenty of choice. It was a tad expensive but for those looking for a quick bite, there are plenty of fast-food joints nearby as the hotel is located in a university area. Buffet Breakfast also had wide variety and was good.
Bathroom was clean and there was a separate shower cubicle. Pulling the tiny knob on the glass door to get out of bathroom was slightly difficult.
The tiled floor in the room became moist and slippery with condensed water if the AC is switched-off.
It would be good if there was a leaflet listing the hotel facilities is kept in the rooms.
Sales Manager Mr. Dinesh was meeting and greeting each guest at the breakfast table to collect feedback on the quality of services and this is probably the secret behind the good experience I had.
