We stayed here twice in 1 week while heading up to Hampi then back down to Kerela. It was a good base as it very central and has most things you need. However, the first visit we questioned why we had paid extra for a 'Deluxe' room. Supposedly more spacious as they seem to be at the 'end' or edge of the building with A/C units. However, they really weren't bigger at all, we must have got them to show us about 5 seperate rooms. All the non A/C rooms have fans and to be honest this was enough. The second time we stayed in a normal NON deluxe room - it was so much better and bigger - EXCEPT - We had to get room service to change all the bed sheets - there we fresh tea stains and hairs from the previous occupants.
Its a real shame hotels don't provide the most basic levels of service. If you just changed the bed and had the bare minimum quality control standards it would stop people like me having to write negative comments about the one thing a hotel is expected to do - Provide clean rooms so people can have a comfortable nights sleep - so basic!
Otherwise - Empire is fine and a 3 minute walk to the Hard Rock cafe if you fancy a real western feast, which was great when trying to get over Delhi Belly from a months trip around India.
