I stayed in this hotel for a business visit for 4 days (16th-Jan-12 to 20th-Jan-12 room no 016)
Poor location in some residential area. Need cab or Tuc tuc to go to nearby places. Not a single cabi in nearby area knows location of the hotel and need to call hotel all the time for direction.
Room dining was pathatic. Very little choice and food quality was bad.
Stupid hotel policies that charge you for entire duration at check in.
They cost you Rs. 800 for a drop to location which is 8KM away..
No complimentary internet access and breakfast (Although this can be excused as a part of plan chosen)
They changed my room rate in between the stay (offcouse upwards) and then brought it back when I protested behaving like headless chickens.
They provide gas burner but no microwave.
TV has not more than 12 working channels and most of those regional with poor quality picture
Oveall disappoiting from a so called global chain.
