“Mosquito in the room.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2011

Highly priced. The room numbers were not there. So somebody from hotel has to accompany you to the room. Other way knock every room at your own risk.

When I asked there are mosquitoes in the room, you do not do pest control ? I got the reply from reception, no sir we do distribute it :). That guy meant tooth paste :). Horrible room service. I doubt the freshness of the food.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2011

I had a two day business visit to Bhopal over 21st and 22nd February 2011. I had booked this hotel because of a recommendation received from my colleague who is originally from Bhopal.

After landing into the hotel, the first thing I noted was their poor room service. Over the next 24 hours that I spent, I realized it even more. For every request, you'll have to call the room service at least 2-3 times before they'll deliver it to you. Even for very simple requests like a "comb", they'll take good 20-25 minutes.

Then comes the most annoying thing. The room as well as the bathroom was full of mosquitoes. I did not notice it in the morning or the afternoon, but during the night, it made my sleep terrible. Finally in the morning, i saw at least 10 mosquitoes sitting over the bathroom mirror and several others roaming around. I complained it to the reception but what I received in return was just blank faces. Not even an apology or any action to rectify the problem.

The swimming pool looked like it has not been used for 1 year. The water was "yellow" and I doubt if anybody would have wanted to use it. The location of swimming pool was also in the basement and I am not sure if anybody would like to use it anyways.

The hotel does not provide any complimentary mineral water or tea/coffee. The hotel claims itself to be a "4 star" hotel but I doubt if its even "2 star" considering the lack of any such facilities.

All in all, I would suggest to stay away from this hotel and try other good hotels in Bhopal.

3 experiences: 1. I checked in the hotel at 7:45 PM & asked the reception if some body can get me some medicine.He said I will send somebody to your room. Till 9 pm no body turned up, asked again he said sending in 10 mins. Again at 10 PM I asked, then some body came and said "sir, all medicine shops would have been closed by now". Then he went down & got me a paediatric medicine of same name.
2. Dishes rates are extremely high in compared to quality & taste. I had ordered rice, dal & bhindi Masala....bill came as Rs 591/-. Taste was extremely pooor and unhygenic/
4. Next day morning I called them for complimentary breakfast at my room which was denied. Then I requested tthat, i will be in the restaurant @10.15 AM. please extend your timings at 10 AM they agreed but when I reached @ 10:20 they said its already over as breakfast remains there untill 10 AM. Now you need to pay for your breakfast. The front office manager was literally abusive.

A good hotel. Situated in the middle of Bhopal i.e. MP Nagar. From there you can cover Bhimbetka, Sanchi etc. They are having around 60 good rooms in a good location. But outside parking space is very limited. Food is very good and you will be enjoying the stay there.

I had to make an urgent visit to Bhopal. The hotel was directly consulted for booking
The hotel was selected in City Centre due to Busness convenience.
The interior of the room, selection of toiletteries and other facilities in the room were very good.
In the morning the peace and tranquility of the hotel can be enjoyed at its best when you go for a walk
The breakfast is a Good spread with delicious Indian as well as Continental Spread . etc. The dinner at the restaurant was ok as I settled for a vegetarian treat.
The pool is lovely, not big but clean and luxurious.


Overall I would say this is probably a good place to stay
