As usual with Lemon Tree hotels, this too provided a lovely fresh fragrance of lemon upon entry.booking was done via the company I work for so everything was clockwork. Upon entry though, I noticed the resident gecko on the side of one of the chairs in the lobby - hard to see as it is well camouflaged. I'm all for wildlife, but that was just weird and unclean. Apart from that, the service was outstanding. Staff were very helpful and polite. The room I got on the 5th floor was tiny; noticeably smaller than the one I got at Lemon Tree Gurgaon. As a result there wasn't much space to move around and there was a chair with a table too tightly cramped up. The room however was very clean and well laid out. The water pressure in the shower is amazing and works perfectly. Small gripe about the snacks provided though: they weren't of the exact quantity stated in the mini bar infocard. Didn't get charged unnecessarily for this though so that was good. The bed was very comfy so that's a good plus. Laundry service is very quick and effective.
And now for the biggest highlight - the food. I absolutely loved the dinner and breakfast buffets. The menu is outstanding and food prepared awesomely. There's so much of choice here and it was a major difference from their branch in Gurgaon. This was really delightful and full of food. Needless to say, the citrus cafe is open 24*7 for dining. Wifi rates area bit high - the amount I paid for 24h is the same amount I pay for a month of much higher bandwidth back at home.
Overall, this is a lovely place to stay in. Good for a decent short visit and recommended - apart from the gecko.
