I have stayed at this hotel about 5 times now and all that I can say is that I do not stay here by choice. It is a last resort if the Holiday Inn next door is full.
The rooms have a weird smell to them. Something like pine disinfectant........there are stains all over everything, and the sheets on the beds whilst clean, have gone a slightly grey color
as they are quite old. The service at this hotel is not very good at all, and particularly in the downstairs restaurant where breakfast is served, the waiters seem to battle to even speak English.
When I checked in I specifically asked that I be put in a quiet room, and was put into a poky little room on the second floor. It certainly was not quiet.....I in fact had to take sleeping tablets the first 2 nights that I was there, due to noisy guests with their TV' s at full volume at 1am and shouting/talking loudly slamming of doors etc.. When I arrived back on the 3rd night there was a huge party right below, making it impossible to even think it was creating so much noise.
This was the last straw and I was moved to a "suite", which although bigger, was no better than the original room that I was in.
One redeeming factor about this hotel, is that the second floor restaurant, called Vividh, is an absolute gem. Their western food is not great at all, but their Indian is fantastic. Particularly their kebabs and grilled food (starters). They have some of the biggest Tiger prawns I have ever seen and they are really good. The chicken grills are also pretty much all great.
I would not recommend this hotel for international travellers coming to India.
In respect of value, the rooms here are priced at about the same as the Holiday Inn across the road, and there is no comparison between the 2. The HI is like a palace compared to this dingy place.
