This is to bring to your kind notice that the Hotel Padma which was booked for my stay at Puri has been the most dissapointing place to stay. I have never had such a bad experience with any hotel so far.
The room given to me initially was shabby and with only one narrow window facing the wall of the apartment beside the hotel. When I had addressed the same, I was alloted a room which had a window with view of the road outside but it had no personal AC. The room was centrally air conditioned and that too at the mercy of the representative on duty. The geyser was also operated the same way. Neither I could access the AC nor the geyser. The intercom phone was there but was not working. The food was HORRIBLE. I was the unfortunate one to order some onion pakoras in the afternoon. The whole room was filled with the odour of the pakoras which smelled as cow dung. i had immediately called the room service and addressed the same which the service boy admitted that the besan used was stale. I had suffered a stomach upset although I had tasted only one pakora. Hence I was there for a full day without proper :
As soon I had addressed these to the attending manager/receptionist, he behaved very rudely. The receptionist spoke so rudely and in a threatening manner that I had requested them to connect me to the booking agent but they did not. I felt really insecure. The next day (18th Dec) I had checked out of the hotel. I had paid in full to them for all services which was assured to me by you but was NOT there. I even paid in full for the stale pakoras served to me which I was unable to eat. This is because I wanted to get rid of the most disgusting place and the people there. One day of my trip was damaged by the Hotel Padma.
In future I shall make sure that none of my aquintances book Hotel Padma.
