The people responsible for my stay booked this place instead of the radisson blu which was not so far away, this confused and tormented me.
At first sight it seems like a nice 4 star hotel option in small town, but no sir there is more. For starters, the elevator did not work. thankfully i was on the first floor. When i entered the room it had a stuffy smell like it hasn't been opened for 3 months. they offered to spray room freshener, i declined.
The bathroom was decent, tho the toilet area was wedged between two walls and took a squeezing in to. the shower area is not curtained or glassed in , it's only separation is a slight transparent glass.
the room itself was nothing to speak about. the tv was smalll, so were the tables the beds were ok. One of the chairs in the room fell apart at first seating. The beds looked clean-ish but the second night of my stay there i felt terribly itchy all over my body.. The AC doesn't work no matter what you do. When i increased the fan speed of the AC some black trash stuff came out and fell on the floor.
The quality of sleep is very poor. the hotel is on a highway so expect constant noise of trucks and vehicles. the curtains wont block out complete light either. Just horrible esp for a late sleeper !! The room is a Mosquito haven there were 1000 of them. they put in good night mosquito repellant but it didn't seem to work. to avoid mosquitos i had to cover my body with the bedsheet which made my body itchy, so i was screwed either ways. Horrible !!
The room service, well the overall staff in general lacked any training what so ever. Anytime they had to come to your room, they would knock on the door and say "may i come in" the problem was that by the time they finished the word "May" they would already be in the room and right in front of you. a few times they just opened the door and walked in. the staff seriously lacks any sort of courtesy or an idea of how to behave in front of the guests. this will be a problem if and when women stay in a room.
The food was good, the north indian stuff that is. don't even dare order continental or any western foods. of all the orders we placed over two days the staff is bound to forget something or the other from your order. wether it was giving spoons with a meal or salt and pepper or entire dishes altogether that you ordered.
The phone in the room is pathetic u have to remember and manually dial the various numbers and 90% of the time what u ask for won't be done. The staff doesn't understand english.
we asked for some chicken and mutton dishes but were flatly politely denied as it was the time of the Navratra Festival and they don't serve meat during those 9 days. Big Fail.
The hotel doesn't have a bar. They however will get you beer etc from a booze shop across the road. Don't even bother your options are restricted to local beer and spirits which i didn't even bother touching.
When we left the hotel at around 10 am there was a hugeass truck traffic jam right outside on that little highway. Get an AC car as it will be really dusty. A terrible stay and god forbid i have to go stay here again.
