We had heard that this would be a good place for us to stay, good food, location and affordable rates.
However, from the moment we entered the hotel, we were spoken very rudely to by the person in the front desk. You see, we had been looking forward to this family vacation for a long time and arrived tired after a long car journey and was surprised by the rude manner he addressed us in and more so by the cold attitude we were given.
We were shown a variety of rooms, all of which had peeling walls (including the Royal Room), dirty bathrooms and the sheets, towels, rugs and blankets all looked like they hadn't been washed in a long time. There is no soap and you have to specially request for toilet paper.
Vinayak is reputed to have a good restaurant, but the room service food we were served was nothing to write home about. The only thing good about this place is that the location is convenient and they do have underground parking for your vehicle. Plus the support staff are friendly but they will expect you to tip well too.
So my final word is, if you don't mind being treated badly and sleeping in less than sanitary conditions then this is the place for you. Otherwise, I would highly recommend you find another budget hotel.
