A real run hotel hotel

India

Visited this hotel after 15 years and looks like they have not upgraded it in the last 15 years , it’s a shabby run down hotel and not worth paying for it with so many options around in that area , after staying 2 nights I actually moved out of the place . The only advantage it has it’s the location
Sep 11, 2018

Noisy rooms. No sleep. Poor communication. Bad room service.

Noisy rooms. No sleep: There was a racket outside our window the whole evening. People talking loudly, laughing and shouting in the parking area. Security should have silenced them. Eventually asked to move room at 1 am which took very long. They moved us to a room that had a machine noise or aircon sound the whole night. Didn't sleep at all. Poor communication. Bad room service: Had to pay for room service every time because front desk had not informed us to pay a deposit. Didn't give us any options on arrival or ask about preferences. Had to call twice to get extra blankets. Booked a double room with bed & breakfast. Told us that we had book a single room and had to pay extra for breakfast. Eventually just went and had breakfast somewhere else because they were being difficult about it.
