I wish i could rate a hotel in Negative points.This is officially the worst hotel in the world. I really wish i hadn't booked a room in this hotel. When i booked this hotel i thought its a really good deal and all those bad reviews on various websites were just people with really high standards . I was so wrong. I have travels to hotels around the world , good and bad but this is officially the worst hotel in the world for one simple reason and his name is Felix Dsouza the Manager of this hotel. If there ever was an example of a human with the most pathetic qualities and idiotic sensibilites it would be him. Firstly let me tell you that this hotel is not at all how it looks in all those pictures. It is built in a pathetic area surrounded by a very bad and poor locality like the middle of a dump. It is on a uneven road and it is atleast a kilometre inside the main road and also located at a very inocous location. It took us nearly an hour to locate this hotel as none of the people even staying around this hotel knew its whereabouts and neither did anyone in the hotel bother to answer their calls to help us. Heck i cant even call this a hotel. But the worst was yet to come. As i had already made the payment and they had a 100% no refund policy i had to stay in that nightmare called a hotel.
Please note that this hotel is all of 3 floors plus ground. There is no lift and no rooms on the ground floor. As i visited in February the hotel bore a deserted look although it was the weekend.However on requesting for a room on the 1st floor as there is no lift i was told that the hotel is fully booked and they can only offer me a room on the 3 rd floor in a corner. Only when i told the Manager Mr.Dsouza that i have already requested for a room on the 1st floor while booking he "managed" to spring up a room on the 1st Floor.
However the above is manageable but i totally lost it when on the last day when i was supposed to check when i got to really know what a pathetic hotel this was.
As per their policy guests are to check out at 10 am . However as i was not aware of this policy i decided to check out at 12 pm. At 11.45 while i was in the shower i hear loud noises of banging , bell ringing and someone trying to barge in the room. As i came out i saw the manager Mr.Felix Dsouza standing there with the door lock broken . On asking him what kind of behaviour this was he instead spoke to me rudely and told me that the hotel check out policy was 10 am to which i replied that i am anyways checking out and if there are any extra charges i will pay but he kept shouting and also tried to physically drag me out of the room without even letting me wear my clothes. It was only when i threatened him that i will call the police did he keep quiet and left me alone.
Trust me this is the most pathetic hotel in the world with officially the worst manager in the world and if you still choose this hotel you are nothing but a damn fool.
