Revolver - We read up the reviews and had to book this place - because of the positive reviews and because it is a themed place to stay. We had no issues with the booking. We mailed Vikash (the owner) and booked the room John, by transferring a minimum amount.
We live a hectic travel life (on work), so we needed to relax. We reached on Sunday, around 4 pm, and just walked down to the mall and chowrasta after freshening up. We had all our breakfasts there, and 3 out of 4 dinners as well. What do you need to go out for when you can stay home and have such excellent meals? The platters, especially the Naga platters were awesome! The breakfast is so filling, especially if you take the morning delight. You don't need to have lunch then, so we just ate out having the roadside momos, which are light and just right. The lobby downstairs has some lovely books and comics to read and also a guitar, which my husband enjoyed playing.
I also loved the locking system. They have a little letter box on the door to each room and you can leave your room key there when you go out. This little key box has its own unlocking number. This is helpful for housekeeping.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and we will definitely be back. Unfortunately, we didn't meet Vikash till the last day when we were leaving as he hadn't been keeping too well. However, Sailesh made up for it, looking after every need that we had!
