I give thanks to God that I have tripadvisor.com for letting everybody know about how bad this hotel is.
The only thing good is the location (full stop).
It is not cheap at all. It costs around 20 euros per night, which in India is really A LOT of money. The room is old, the blankets are uncomfortable, the bathrooms is just... well, it makes you laugh...The air conditioning sounds like an Airbus A340 taking off, but if you switch that off you can sleep due to the hot.
Now, let' s talk about the service. The people who recieves you at the door ask you for a tip, like if it was an obligation for you to give. The receptionist tried to cheat us a lot of times with the currency exchange, he was changing the exchange rate within 1 hour time. The room service came into our room to provide us with water, I gave some extra-money but I asked for the change-balance, but obviously they never came back.
Please never go here, you get really annoyed because you are the costumer and everybody is treating you like [--] and trying to get money in a not honest way from you.
Thank you for reading.
