this is first time when we think we had a bad choice by watching the rating of this property and choosing it ,
First the good point - budget travellers who want to burn no money and stay in budget property or get no place in any dharamshala can opt for this ,
But please note the other sie of the coin , nice AC rooms are available just 20 to 100 metres of this property , this property is located on the hillside slope of the badrinath road , perhaps the worst location in tapovan area where there is no proper space to park the car on the slope , the way has been spoilt by the sewer line and even car cannot go easy ,
the property lacks even the basic things , the person who has probably rented this property
have not managed to staff it well and its is run by only 3 people , which when this property has most rooms full becomes a mess , you have to wait for the breakfast as there is no staff ,
When asked a blanket , you are refused that no extra blanket as the hotel is full , Hotel ????
o really !! staff to be frank is helpful ! but if no basic facilities , no invertor ,no generator ,
no proper place to eat food ,
from the balcony you can watch locals washing clothes in the very dirty small water flowing , and this property had no pics so its not good for idea how it is , now i am posting pics which may give some tips ,
the blanket given to us was too terrible , its what we do not give our servants for using ,it was a bad experience , as the owners have not spent much money for the customer delight and just fulfilled the quantity of things , and not at all cared for the quality - example is mirror , doors , bed , u see the paint ,the doors everything u will find in poor people house in india , thats what our servants use , if u want a poor poeple lifestyle to see , OK then its not bad choice for hard bed and poor view from balcony
first day breakfast was okay , just because the attitude was right and not many guests probably only 4 rooms had guests , next day the same experience was terrible , no taste , no proper serving , as no staff as maybe 10 rooms had guests ,and 3 people ( inclusive of the cook ) do you think is enough even if 2 of them are good ?
this is not a planned hotel or a proper place to stay , its just like a conventional guest house and very highly overated on tripadvisor , kindly check the qty of reviews also before you rate so high ,it does not deserve the 2nd rating in tripadvisor perhaps the guests are getting there just due to this rating ,
also the foriegners who come here and stay probably have not tasted the true taste of indian hosptality , the room tariff is low but if they find here locally or search more they can get 10 times better accomodation at almost similar prices in same area , just as those hotels are not in tripadvisor list this is a big problem to find them , and thats what made us have this wrong choice ,
of coarse have no tv is relaxing , but having hard beds even worse than a dharamshala is really pathetic , towels had bad smell , bathroom has plastic doors the cheapest used in poor houses , the mirror are temporary ( the ones you get on roadside for Rs 50/- , no basic things ,side of beds is like bought from roadside ,
frankly no money has been spent for even the basic things , dont believe any review unless you see the pics ,they are real
SPA - we were told that for a treatment of massage will cost 1200 but we will be given discount and price will be 1000/-
the truth : you get same treatment at BABA massage centre in their fully equipped massage centre at 700/- list price which he willingly gives for Rs 500/- WITHOUT
ANY OBLIGANCE ,
if you are a smart traveler you can find same treatment near laxman jhula at Only Rs 300/- to Rs 400/- ( we got for 300/- for full one hour )
all prices were lower by more than half of the marked prices in Rishikesh sadan
yoga charge is Rs 300 /- per person per class , yoga guruji is good guy but other places mostly offer this free as part of the stay !
food : thali is 100/- rs ,limited variety average food , best option : go to chotiwala at ram jhula sit in non ac and take 100/- rs thali with unlimited serving ,
you will be surprised that suddenly you have come from a suzuki to mercedes benz as taste ,variety and quality is 20 times better ,
even on asking noone cleaned the room , as no staff ,
this is a lodge and not hotel i dont understand how this came to tripadvisor , overall a bad choice
