I stayed at this place since my regular hotel had full occupancy. The overall feel of this place is good due to the location (T. Nagar), however some things though minor are a let down
I checked into a suite room (Room 48) which I was told was under renovation and I was the first guest to be checking in after it was done. I felt this while walking barefoot of the flooring, which had a thin layer of construction dust. Also the smell of fresh paint was felt on switching off the airconditioning.
Being marketed as a service apartment, the room interiors were no frills (vitrified tiles instead of Italian marble, avg quality Indian bath fittings instead of imported high end, no carpets, table tops of granite instead of glass, average fabric upholstery for the furniture, etc)
Two aspects which need immediate attenttion were the shower lever which was wrongly fixed (HOT for COLD and vice versa) and the not operational night safety latch (not necessarily required). Had brought this to the attention of the reception manager which he said will be done
The good aspects: the place gives a neat homely feeling. airconditioning is top quality & non noisy, bedding and furniture are comfortable, the linen is clean, TV and refrigerator were working, the complimentary breakfast had good options, the morning newspaper was delivered on time, the staff is courteous and there is reasonable parking available
Also this place doesn't have an in-house kitchen and room service is catered by a local restaurant nearby. The quality of the meal ordered though was good, however the service takes abt 50-60 minutes
Overall, average on Value For Money (VFM)
