Stayed in room 509, Executive City View Room. The lobby of the hotel and public rooms were nice but the bedrooms were very tired: basic and tatty round the corners. I would dispute their claim that ‘eexecutive rooms are recently renovated extremely high-end luxury’ as in my opinion they were in desperate need of a refurbishment.
The hotel is set in lush green gardens, has a very nice pool and is a veritable haven of peace and tranquillity in this crowded and ancient temple city, although there is the ever present background noise of car horns and trains.
There was a traditional wedding going on during our stay which was fascinating to observe, apparently these are a regular occurrence at the hotel.
