I had to attend a wedding in Nashik on 21st December, 2013 with my wife and was debating which hotel to stay. On star category, I checked with Ginger Hotel but the unfortunate part was the booking has to be done centrally through their Mumbai contact number and the gentleman who attended the phone at Mumbai told me that he will check the availability at Nashik and will call back, a call which never came. So, I dropped Ginger.
The other alternative was to look for a decent hotel in the heart of the city. From the various reviews, I short listed two hotels viz., Hotel Rajmahal and Hotel New Holiday Plaza at Shalimar Chowk – at the heart of the city. When I checked at Hotel Rajmahal I found that the hotel is located right on the main road but with the entrance hardly visible and with a small lobby. The rooms, however, were clean and tidy. I must hand it to Hotel Rajmahal that they sent me a confirmation SMS on availability while a star hotel like Ginger did not even find it necessary to call back, forget about SMS confirmation. I decided to check the position at Hotel New Holiday Home and I found that the hotel is located a few yards away from the main road with a sufficiently large lobby and non-AC accommodation was provided at a very reasonable price with all the facilities that any good hotel can provide including 24 hours hot water. The rooms were spacious and clean. The AC and Manhattan rooms were also equally well maintained.
The hotel is well equipped with sufficient and efficient staff. Even when I had to check out at 5.30 a.m. the next day, I found the front desk manned by an alert staff. It has two restaurants adjacent viz., a restaurant providing vegetarian Maharashtrian and Punjabi Thali. The Maharashtrian thali is slightly on the spicier side, as it is expected while Pubjabi thali is less spicy. For non-vegetarian food, they have Restaurant Food Plaza adjoining the veg. restaurant. But, no fish items are available as the staff claims that there is not much demand of fish items although such items appear on the menu card. The service at the restaurants was good.
To sum up, stay at Hotel New Holiday Plaza was worth every penny spent on hotel accommodation while in Nashik.
