“wrong display of facilities”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Make My Trip showed AC rooms, electronic safe, retaurant, cafe, internet, cable tv, ineral water, fruit basket n many more facilities.....however,

AC Room was only for limited time.

Restaurant is permanently closed, so they get food from outside, & not what you ask for....n see the qudqcity that dhaba type food is billed like 3-star kitchen prepearation.

Hot water - you have to infirm them half an hour in advance.

No housekeeping.....they have few boys working on contract basis, like road-side dhabas.

Mineral water - they asked me to speak to MAKEMY TRIP for the same.

Linen was full of previous user's hair, n they changed after good altercation.

Electronic safe - i dint find any.

Washroom was dirty n unkempt.

Doors do not open n close easily.

No internet.

Cable TV has only one English news channel, no Hindi news channel.

Fruit basket - i dont know how it looks like.

Well, i am writing sitting here just to prevetn others being trapped.

The rooms are dirty and feels like it has not been cleaned for months. Toilet is in bad condition, there are cockroaches in the bathroom and there is dirt in the room. There is no hot water in the room, when asked for hot water they gave us two buckets of hot water and said there is no gas in hotel. The hotel has no kitchen as they bring tea/coffee and breakfast from outside. Breakfast served was too cold. After complaining for 5 hours our rooms were cleaned (according to the staff)
but they were still dirty. There is no housekeeping staff in the hotel. There were no amenities (soap, shampoo, towels, bed linen) in the room and when asked for it they said it was over. So i would recommend not to visit this hotel as they charge too much and there is no service.

Room Tip: find another hotel

The first impression of the hotel is very good, it looks nice and staff seems to be very nice and helpful. On the second look, the rooms are rundown and in bad conditions. The windows do not close properly and there are mosquitos everywhere, no hot water, the sheets and floor is not clean and we even had a cockroach in our room. The manager did not feel any of that was a problem. On top, he screwed us by "helping" negotiating with a rikshaw driver (rate back without his "help" was a lot cheaper even though he promised us that he negotiated a good price). The breakfast was of the same category, plates, forks and knifes and cups where filthy and dirty and the food average at max for a overall rate of 2,000 Rs a night.

Worst choices of the travel - avoid if possible!

Room Tip: Don't go!

Room floor was filled with dust n had a musty smell. Friends room smelled of alcohol. Door mat looked like a rag from a dustbin. Not one plug point to charge cell phone. Bathroom light does not work. Dirty dingy bath. Bad service. Door lock keeps getting stuck as u open da room door.

Though we did not stay at the hotel, we visited the restaurant in search of decent food and it proved to be worth it. We ordered Indian Chinese and thought the chicken cooked had bones in them, the flavor and taste was still decent.

They had a decent number of dishes on the menu and the hosts seemed to be nice people.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It was the last day of our honeymoon 8th feb 2012. We recieved a warm welcome at arrival, though it took about 20 mins to provide us a room probably because someone else checked out late and they took some time to clean up the room. Our room was beautifull, well maintained. The bathroom was also neat & clean with all modern fittings.

All over our expierence in this hotel was nice.

I visited Alleppey this month. I stayed with my family at hotel Picasso Castle. I want to share my overall experiences with you.

First the positives:
1. Clean rooms with most modern amneties
2. Location of the hotel is convenient, approx 1km from Back waters area.
3. Very helpful nature of their manager Mr. Suresh
4. Good food prepared by their cook. However, they do not have a full fledged restaurant.

Negatives:
1. The rooms electrical connections are extremely weird. Many switches do not work and sometimes the light shades come falling down.All the three pin connections are Chinese type. For charging laptops and mobile, you have to go to the reception, where only one Indian type three pin connections
2. The room service is poor with respect to the prices charged. After 7 pm, the persons staying in hotel have extreme difficulty in communication and its difficult for foreigners/North Indian people to communicate.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road have balconies, the opposite rooms do not have. choose a room facing the road.
