Intrepid. That's the tour company that we were with when we started our trip from Mumbai to Delhi. Intepid apparently means 'Daring' or 'Fearless' and you'd have to be to stay in this crap fest.
I honestly thought I'd been done over by the company. I mean, if your first night is bad, God, makes you think what else they've got lined up for you.
And an extra nights stay in this thing through Intrepid costs £20 for a twin room. I've stayed in nicer places in Delhi's backpacker district for half the price. Twin Room. That's misleading. What you've got is a single room with two of those childrens beds it it, you know, the ones you buy when they're 6 and by the time they hit 7, you wish you'd just gone and bought normal single sizes. Ha! fool you. And fool you again if you book here.
A few observations... there were mosquitos in my bathroom because not all the slats in the bathroom window would close.
The air con system in the room didn't work. Fan did though. Can always open a window with the traffic outside right? Beep Beep!
This was the first of the hotels I stayed in that had a leaking toilet bottom. You do your thing, flush and the watch all that discoloured liquid seep around the bottom of the bowl... making its way to the 'shower' plug hole before stopping a foot or so away. Phew! Thank God the lighting in the bathroom was dim. Yuck!
Loved the Hotel rules on the back of my room door "Management not responsible for accidental death" (..just to the left, a plug socket falling off the wall..one of two actually)
I'd gladly exchange a few of the mosquitos I had for some of the other reviewers creepy crawlies. Where were my cockroaches that's what I want to know? I've been short changed! Minus a star!
Would I stay here again, what do you think?
