Location is good but the cleanliness and hygiene was an issue. Also, the swimming pool was not accessible on any of the four days I stayed there due to maintenance. Food service is good but the menu can be expanded.

We were supposed to stay in this hotel in January 2014 for 2 days; however, we checked out the same night as we found bed bugs crawling on the bed. It is an old hotel with very poor maintenance and has a musty smell when one enters. When we entered our rooms we were met with a swarm of mosquitoes.... More

Hotel is in nice place and rooms are nice and clean. But Pool is not maintained correctly, it will be out of maintenance everyday. Hotel maintenance is not good, they have to improve it. Restaurant is very very costly, not worth at all. Travel desk is very nice, they will help you a lot. PS: CARDS won't work here. They... More

We are currently staying at this hotel and from the moment we entered the reception area, it has been a horrible and terrible experience. Firstly, the entrance is shabby with worn threadbare rugs at the door, then a horrible musty smell greets you in the reception area. The staff are the most apathetic, lazy and dull people you can imagine.... More

Please do not go to Aruna if you are expecting polite staff and a business hotel. The staff at the reception is downright rude. I was told " you could have never got such a rate" from the receptionist who could not even find my reservation. It was the most humiliating experience at a hotel reception I have faced. There...
