“Decent accomodation, big hotel with reasonable comforts....worth what I paid”
Reviewed 24 September 2010

Stayed here just one night.......actually to be honest..........stayed for few hours........

I arrived into Siliguri from my Flight from Bagdogra....only 45 minutes away.
The plan was to stay there a night and proceed to Bhutan thenext day.....

One of my dearest friends wife just delivered a baby girl in a small town or should I say Village called Balurghat...which was an overnight journey

I, then decided to visit his house instead of staying back at Siliguri, as I had a day or 2 spare, since I had no fixed hotels or Itinerary for Travel to Bhutan.

I reached Hill Cart Road and went crazy finding this hotel..........as locally it id pronounced Moinark ( mo-e- na-rk), whereas its written as Mainak.........so i do believe no one really understood what I said.........I now come to understand that most people in West Bengal pronounce A as O, so the pronouncation.

I entered this hugh hotel gate in a hand rickshaw and was quite glad to see th lobby size.

I had only paid Rs 350 for the room for a night with A/C as I got a 500 discount voucher on MMT.com..........so honestly,I knew I cant expect the moon !!!

I was taken to this rather large room on the ground floor and got comfortable into the reasonably comfortable bed...............\

The mistake I made was thta the window had been left open as I entered, and then shut for the A/C............later there were alot of mosquitoes who attacked me for awhile......
This was coz it was on the ground floor and there was alot f greenery around, besides a bit of rainfall.

The cooling was reasonably good and the TV was also reasonable well sized and had decent variety of channels to offer.......

I rested only a couple of hours, watching TV and then left for the Bus Stop for my bus to Balurghat...............all in all I did not dislike the hotel, as I didnt stay the night......but the room service was curt and prompt............

Had a hicken Biryani which I felt was over priced but later realised that it may have been for 2 people as I had to waste more than half.......

No complaints.....neither can I say it was phenominal as it was not highly priced or loaded with amenities................Its a good transit hotel where one can get a good nap and some decent food and rest if travelling ahead......but again...........Dont expect the moon
