“Worst hotel I have ever stayed in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

I went to this hotel because of two reasons, one I landed in bangalore at 5 in the morning via train from chennai and two because it was walking distance from the station. The hotel maybe been a nice place earlier, but it is the worst possible hotel to stay in, they charged 1000 for my 5 hour stay in the morning, no shower, there was water leaking in the bathroom already, no comforter & mattress was as good as a wooden bed.

Please a big no to anybody going to the hotel, definately avoid it.

Room Tip: Rooms are hopeless, check the toilets just in case you have no other hotel to choose from

Even can stay @ footpath but not in this hotel.I would suggest no one to book rooms @ this hotel even though if the rooms are provided for free.Bed full of insects, bathroom stinks. Couldn't imagine the place that much worst.Have never seen a worst hotel like this . Don't get cheated by seeing the building from outside.

This hotel is falling apart. It used to be a grand hotel in its heyday. But now it is just a poorly maintained, stinky, overpriced place. The only thing going for it is the excellent location. Avoid this hotel, there are lots of alternatives nearby.

I am in this hotel room right now while writing this review and couldnt help control to warn others not to get carried away by the photos as the hotel looks great from outside, the entrance lobby and corridors looks nice but the nightmare begins once you are in the room. There was no hot water available but after a request they got me hot water in bucket. Toilet flush was not working. The bed was full of bugs crawling. I changed my room and this time the AC was not working. It was almost 11 pm and I just managed myself somehow in another smelly room. FYI room charges rs 1200

I visited this hotel with moderate expectations seeing its images on the internet. Well to start a big list:
1.) The reception staff was incompetent as they took lot of time to check in.
2.) Welcome at the reception was done by lot of mosquito bites.
3.) Room had very dirty linen and its light never used to get switch off.
4.) The worst part was I felt itches all around my body when I just lied down and then I realised it had bugs all over. On complaining at the reception the staff didn't help either so had to spend night on floor. Restroom was also in terrible shape.
Under any condition never ever book this hotel. On complaining to makemytrip also for the booking they didn't do anything .

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel at any cost...

I booked the hotel based on the listing and facilities provided on the website of make my trip and ezeego1 and it was all false. The room had not even basic amenities and hotel is in the bad shape.
Problems:
1. The beds were broken.
2. There were no blankets
3. The tea cofee maker is not at all there
4 The wash room lock was broken
5. Rooms are not cleaned and bed sheet has permanent stains
6 TV not working
7 NO mineral water being provided
8 Glass for drinking water are having dust
9 Lift is not working and we got stuck up once.
10 Wifi internet or high speed internet not at all or ever there.
11 No toileteries not even a soap.

You keep riniging to the reception for all and never get them.

It was a worst experience ever. There are better and cheap hotels adjacent and nearby. Advised not to check in at any price or you are at risk.

Hai Guys, we a group of 25 people stayed in this hotel on 27th Dec 2012. This is the WORST WORST WORST Ever Hotel I have ever seen in my entire lifetime. Please be aware it is not a Three star hotel and should be rated as ZERO STAR HOTEL. The Photos in their website might have been taken long time back while inaugurating the Hotel. Inside the Hotel is terrible. It is better to stay on platform rather than this Hotel. The Rooms are very bad, the mattresses are very very hard and nobody can sleep on them. Food in the restaurant is the worst I have ever tasted. Even dogs can not eat it. Since we are travelling with small kids, we requested them to provide some milk. The immediate answer is they don't have milk. After lot of requests, they have provided 1/2 litre diluted milk for Rs 150/-. They are Two lifts, among which one Lift is not working at all, and the other Lift is terrible, the doors get closed even during when people move in to it and you have to forcefully stop the doors with hands. We were scared with this Lift and used the staircases to reach our rooms located in 3rd floor along with heavy luggage. The Bathrooms are badly stinking. The Toilet Flush did not work. There was no hot water. Since, we had to catch a flight in the morning, we informed the hotel people in advance that we require Hot water by 4:30 A.M. None of our rooms got Hot water in the morning. The Staff told that they have already started the boiler, it takes 10 minutes. Even by 5:30 A.M, also we did not get the Hot water in the Taps. After lot of arguments, we got the Hot water by 5:45 A.M, but this time interestingly, we got extreme hot water with more than 100 degrees Celsius, and no cold water for mixing up to take the bath. Generally Hotels consist of both the Cold as well as Hot water Taps separately. But in this hotel it is not so. At any time you will get only one type of water either cold or hot. Finally, we could not take our bath, since we are already behind our schedule by 40 minutes. We worried a lot about reaching airport in time and catching our flight. This hotel didn't deserve the amount we paid. The Hotel people are biggest cheaters and they don't have any concern about the customers. Please avoid this WORST WORST WORST HOTEL. Thanks.

Room Tip: None of the Rooms are Good. All the Rooms are in pathetic condition only.
