Advertised as having hot water, wifi, electricity... We stayed two nights and when we arrived there was no electricity (not their fault though, you always get brown outs here). We were told how to turn the hot water. When we went to have a shower we had to flick the switch and wait 15 minutes. Did that. But no hot water.
Waited 15 minutes more. Still no hot water. Next downstairs and asked them about the hot water. They came up and flicked another switch - there is a boiler switch that they hadn't turnd on. Got hot water that time.
Next night. Not even a hot water problem, we had a water problem. No water in the taps - whether for the shower or the sink. Asked them and they said that we would have some at 5 in the morning and that there was no water at all....
Room and bathroom have parts of the wall that are open which means that Mosquitos can and do fly into the room and the bathroom.
Room was large and looked nice but didn't feel very clean.
No wifi. They say that they have it but im pretty sure it never works or is non existent. Apparently hadn't be working the two days prior to us getting here, didn't work the two days while we were here... Were told that it is often like this but I think it's probably permanently like this. They gave us a rehearsed answer about it coming back on at midday but it never did,
The Nepalese guys who work here are nice and try real hard.... But i dont think the owner gives them much to work with. There always seems to be an excuse... When we mentioned the lack of water it was "the water came back on later in the night," to which we replied "we slept past 1.30am" to which the owner replied "yes and the water came on at 2am"... Convenient. Im sure that the wifi will turn on the moment we leave as well...
given how much we paid for the room ir4000, it definitely wasn't worth it.
Food was decent.
Definitely not worth the money.... Especially given how far ir4000 can get you in India.
