The first thing that strikes you is how modern the architecture is. All those who love contemporary architecture and amenities will love this place but it will be a terrible disappointment for all those who are traditional at heart. It is a boutique hotel in true essence, not like other Indian hotels who pretend to be boutique but are regular ones. Each floor is designed with a unique theme like Fire, Ice, Rain forest, Sea blue etc. I have taken a Fire theme and the room looked decent.They score big with small things like able to watch television located in the main room from the bathroom and with speakers in the bathroom which connect the TV, complimentary airport drop in BMW 5 series etc. But that doesn't mean that they are without any flaws. The major problem for me was service, too slow for my liking. Very inconsistent, some time they were fast and some times dead slow, which is case when a hotel is severely understaffed. The other major drawback is the location, surroundings are not very clean and the location is not very easy to find unless you have a GPS. Since it is new not many taxi drivers also know the location. I just a Biryani and the food was tasty as well.
All in all a very good hotel for that price.
