I booked this hotel for two days in Nov. 19 seeing some reviews. I am very unhappy with this hotel for the following reasons: 1.) When reached the hotel they did not even collect persons's ID or asked for any details. 2.) Entrance from main road is very small. Will not fit even two cars. It was informed that car parking is in the basement floor. It is very difficult to get in and get out of the basement through a small street behind the building. During daytime security person should be present to stop the traffic to get a car out! 3.) As we entered the room heavy cigarette smell engulfed all. On communicating the issue room was changed. The second room was better but very small bath room. 4.) When enquirer why smoking was allowed in the room it was informed that it is beyond their control as occupants break the rule. Never faced such situation. 5.) Bathrooms were very small with a sliding door! If one turn while bathing their hand can touch the wall. 6.) It appears this place was mainly given to single men on long term basis or so as I could see many of them sitting in their night dresses after 9:30 PM. Not comfortable to see such crowd. 6.) When vacated the hotel after full settlement then did not give any bill! I could have asked but just came out as I was disgusted with the place. 7.) Vacated the hotel and shifted to near by more comfortable hotel.
