I had the misfortune of staying here after the company booked me and 3 collegues a room each for one night only.
It started when we arrived, the outside looked terrible and I actually thought 'what a dump'
Reception was OK in terms of service, but scanning passports and visa did take a long time though.
Up to the room in a cronky lift, I wondered if we would make it.
The room was old, and probably had no maintenance on it since it was contructed in about 1947 ! The electrics looked dodgy with black burn marks around one covering plate near the door. the light switch was near the bed - mission impossible to get there in the dark. The light was a flourescent light attached to the wall above the bed (nice !)
The bathroom had a window with no glass, just a mozzie screen. Whilst showering I could see all the way up the road ! Not an impressive sight. The ants on the floor were welcome to it.
The whole room looked dirty and in desperate need of a refurb ( or demolision?).
The double bed was harder than concrete. The single bed was slightly softer, but not by much.
The linen looked like I would catch something, so I elected to sleep in a T shirt, jeans and socks....... on top of the bed.
The AC unit sounded like a jumbo taking off, but without it the room was too hot to sleep. It did drown out some of the street noise though.
I looked out of the window and saw some people sleeping in the street, and felt jealous of them.
Rs1664 for the worst hotel I have ever had the misfortune to rest my head.
The food was OK though - even if they did mess up my order first time (it was replaced without fuss) and the price for food was reasonable.
