Don't go near the hotel Prince until the renovations have finished. They were going last August when I visited and this May they were still going on without an end in sight. I booked a room via their website but never got a confirmation and when I arrived at the hotel they said they never got the booking. This happened last time too. They had one room available ( fortunately it was one of the few rooms to have been renovated) but I had to walk along a corridor of rubble with swirling dust from the adjacent construction sight to get to it. That was too much. However when I tried to get into two other hotels nearby they were full as Bhuj had a large conference on. Reluctantly I wen track to the Prince, who assured me the the construction noise would only be heard from 7am to 5pm. The first night was ok. However on night 2 I was awoken by huge clanging noises, the sound of steel girders being dragged across a floor. This was 11pm. I got back to sleep a few times but the noise persisted. At 1am I went down to reception to complain. A huge semi trailer was backed into the front door and men were offloading beams and girders. I told the man at the front desk "enough is enough" and he replied "very sorry sir, I will get them to stop immediately". Back in my room the noise subsided - for about an hour anyway. Then it started again. At 3am I went downstairs again in an absolute rage. The usual apologies but I could see the trailer was still being unloaded. In the morning, after no sleep, I went to the front desk and complained to the manager. He did not offer an apology and when I said I would not pay for the previous night, he just smiled. The Prince, arguably, may be the best hotel Bhuj has to offer but please do not go there until the renovations have finished. Only In India would they keep a hotel open that is really just a construction site full of dust and noise.
