“Abnormally pathetic”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Bad rooms with pathetic services. Bed bugs were found in the room bed. Please do not visit this place ever. The tariff is over rated as conpared to the quality of services provided. I had booked the hotel room from Kolkata and had to change the hotel in the interim.

I chose this hotel as it was adjacent to Asian Institute of Gastroenterology where i went for a checkup. Hotel is good but very expensive if you are on a budget. The booking experience on goibibo was a charm.

The room looked clean , but it had cockroaches moving freely around the bed and the washroom.Room service also was pathetic. Laundry service was delayed saying we are short of staff hence the delivery cannot be made on time.Food that was offered was stale and even for breakfast things were only in numbers but lacked taste.

Stayed at IK London last week. The hotel room badly need renovation or atleast thorough cleaning, that's the first impression i got after entering the room and looking around it. Presume this is the case with all the rooms.

The staff are highly courteous and helpful. . .everyone. But it seems that the owners / promoters / management are least interested in the hotel. From outside the hotel looks good, the lobby is decent, but the room is in pathetic condition. But then you think, what do you expect from a 2 star hotel.

Mind you, there are many neat and clean properties which are not even 2 star.

Some renovation / cleaning tips :-

- Don't use bed linen which has holes
- Use wooden back/head rest for the bed. Since currently, the back/head rest of the bed is made of cloth, its soiled
- Change the age old TVs and replace with wall mounted LCDs, which you nowadays get at a decent rate. This will increase space in the room
- Ensure that the regulator of the fan has a proper knob
- Instead of using paint in the cupboard, use some kind of polish where the scratches are not visible. The shelves in the cupboard had innumerable scratches from bags
- Atleast, have 4 hangers, instead of just 1
- You can have an all wooden / steel / iron center table with glass top, but please don't have a center table which has an age old marble top, which is not fitted to the table and can fall any time
- Instead of having a dirty wooden chair with soiled cloth seating, same can be replaced with a plastic chair/all wooden chair
- The rug outside the bath room needs to be cleaned as it contains all dirt/mud, which sticks to your feet
- The bathroom needs to be cleaned-up thoroughly and you need to ensure that hot water is available
- The inside part of the bathroom door needs to be cleaned as there is moss accummulated at the bottom
- Instead of plastic shelf under the mirror, use a glass shelf
- Most importantly, use a good quality paint / wall paper on the walls of the room, which the staff can clean / wipe in case of stains occassionally

The hotel can be made beautiful, since you have beautiful people and wonderful location. But you need to plough back some earnings for a longer life.

Was booked to stay in this place and cancelled once I had seen the room. The entrance is okay, but was shown a "deluxe" room for 4500rs which quite frankly should have been charged at about 1000. It was shabby, claustrophobic and didn't look very clean. Went back to reception to find I had only been booked into a standard room. The receptionist seemed to think this was funny, so I didn't even bother to see that and cancelled the reservation. Read the other reviews on here and agree with them. Avoid

This hotel is located very near to the railways station / bus station (thats the only advantage) many are not aware about the hotel. Rooms are really old one. I took standard first it was pathetic and took deluxe Rs.3000 / day and it just had a small lcd tv with bath tub(stained). Room stinks and the beds are the old aged one. Food served is also ok only. Morning breakfast had very very less varities but they served dosa after lots of request. Please note you wont get Hot water in this hotel for bathing. Bathing towels / bedsheets were bad.i didnt get sleep till 3am such pathetic it was WIFI will work only if ur in third floor that too near the wifi router..Overall a very average hotel but very expensive for the amnities...
