I stayed in Bhakti Dham for 10 nights during December 2011. It was my first visit to India. If you are visiting this hotel in Winter be sure to get a south facing room as I had very little sunlight in my room. Bathrooms are not clean: rusty taps, dirty bathtubs and basin. Furniture was dusty and floors dirty on arrival. But once I complained, they were quick to clean up....never saw room service again. Rooms smelt like it was locked up for centuries. Room service is bad! You have to beg them to change sheets. towels and clean up... All done at their own slow pace. English is a problem. If you are not able to communicate in hindi, expect to be ripped off or just ignored. Do not pay 100% up front, rather check out you room first. Hot water takes about 10 minutes to reach your room...imagine my surprize on the first morning waiting for hot water in the shower during a cold winter morning. No drinking water provided! Don't order food from the hotel kitchen, they serve it in the most disgusting plastic cutlery. Laundry service is pathetic....two days!!!...and according to them this is acceptable. Becareful of monkeys sleeping on the passageway at night. I will only stay in this hotel if it is my last option. I have heard that by Vrndavan standards it is high....I fail to see how. Some of the staff can be arrogant and useless. Rakesh, the manager, is the only person worth talking too. If it were not for him, I would have checked out early. Location is very good though for ISKCON temple. Don't expect to much from this hotel....you will be dissappointed.
