With the exception of the room attendant on the second floor, Selwar Muthi (I hope I have spelt it correctly!), the staff have not apparently learned to smile. Actually, a receptionist smiled at me on the third day! The restaurant is like the Curate's egg. The chandelier has as many defunct light bulbs in it as those incandescent. The maitre-ds are morose, and the commis are dressed in what are apparently football shirts. For two days the food was good (but only available in a buffet style), but on the third day it was luke-warm and dried out; at least on the vegetarian side. Having been told that I could sign the bill and have it added to the room account, on the last day of my stay I was chased into the lift by one of the morose managers who wanted to know if I could pay cash for my meal. This is the first time that I have been treated like this, and told him so in no uncertain terms. The account was added to my final bill! The roof terrace is dirty and unkempt, although the rest of the building is clean. I would not stay there again.
