Location- The title shouts loud, Can’t be any better, not even a hundred steps from the East gate of the temple, Most centrally located with a wonderful shopping area adjacent to it.
Wifi: Good speed
Rooms: As shown in the pictures, generally clean, the washroom is big though the fittings require a change for sure.
No In House Restaurant: That’s a big minus, they get the breakfast from an adjacent south Indian restaurant and that’s the ONLY thing which is served during then, even if you bang your head against their walls, it won’t be anything else, and in case you’re a late night eater as I am then watch out, the nearby shops close completely by 930 pm, either sleep hungry or travel long to get a decent restaurant.
Rooms don't have any natural ventilation source, nor there is a source for natural sunlight, asking for a balcony room will be like looking for a luxury you wouldn't be ever availed.
Room Service: Pathetic, bed sheets were dirty, and when requested for a change, the replacement sheets were equally or more spotted, The staff will come, throw the linen on your bed, pillows here and there and will vanish, leaves you surprised. The guy at the reception stammers, by the time he might answer your query you kinda feel better leave the question unanswered.
During the noon we preferred coming back to the hotel and take rest for a while and found ourselves surprised to see that the only lift was under maintenance, upon request the staff assured that it should be functioning in a while which ended up the status quo for next 15 minutes or so, eventually we preferred taking the staircase to the second floor, and that was a pain to my elderly mother.
No tea/coffee arrangements in the room except a water boiler.
