First time at the Majan on business and I decided to stay here because of its' proximity to Seeb Road and the new Expressway. The hotel is tucked away somewhat and you need a car or taxi to get anywhere. On arrival from the airport by taxi I booked a car for delivery at 0830 the following morning to start work. No Show, so eventually I had to Taxi back to the airport to pick up a rental. This reflected badly on the hotel, but there's more to come.
The room was a long walk from the reception area and I had to ask for directions; never an encouraging thing after check-in to any hotel. No problem normally because I am not averse to exercise but I would have liked to know where I was headed in the direction of my room. Every step had me wondering. Eventually an helpful pool attendant (yes, pool attendant because the signage took me to the pool), assisted me. The a/c was off and the room was cozy i.e. very small, and by the same standards the bathroom was tiny. Remember this is supposed to be a 4* hotel. The up-side being that the bed was large and comfortable but I would have preferred a quieter, more controllable a/c and flat screen TV. There was no hotel directory in the room and no laundry bag. The fridge was empty and there were no nibbles as one would expect. There were two small bottles of drinking water, full amrks for that at least.
The restaurant buffet supper spread was OK but certainly not 4* standard. The hotel lobby shop (where I made my abortive rental car request) had no nibbles or chocolate bars etc. but pointless tacky bits. How strange!
I could go on but my recommendation would simply be to give the Majan a miss.
