I have stayed in this hotel from 22 March to 25 March.
Reading the review and rating in trip advisor I booked this hotel.The hotel is located in the heart of the city, but I have to say the surrounding is horrible.This hotel is just 200 mts from main road, but this 200 mts stretch is too pathetic with foul smell from nearby public toilets and is completely unhygenic.Sad to say I haven't been to such a place.
But once you enter the hotel, its pretty neat and clean, but there is definite scope for improvement.This is not a hotel as such but a 4 storeyed building, of which 2 floors are used as a hotel.The rest 2 floors are rented out as offices.The reception is the ground floor and rooms in the 4th floor.The lifts and the air-conditioners are noisy and not upto the mark.
The rooms, the pathway and the bathrooms were clean.The staff was not knowing English, we had some trouble getting information from them.The local knowledge regarding nearby places were negligible.But they were courteous with the limited knowledge they have.(The sales manager seems to have the knowledge, she was available only on the last day as she was on leave).We recommend that staff should be given some training on local places and at-least they should understand English.
The breakfast and snacks were good, but the French onion soup was a new experience :( .
The local cab arranged by Skylon staff was also a horrible experience.We recommend the visitors to arrange cabs by manancabs or merucabs for local sightseeing.We arranged the airport drop through manancabs and the driver was prompt and the price was half of what was quoted by one of the Skylon staff.
So overall its an average hotel, and cannot be rated as high as it is rated in tripadvisor.
