Up front I would say we arrived after a long flight and had missed a nights sleep and we were extremely tired. On arrival we badly needed at least 4 hours sleep. We had booked through Trailfinders. We have booked 10+ trips with trailfinders and always specify a quite room. The room we were allocated was at the Junction of 2 roads - therfore ceaseless traffic noise. In India this means mopeds accelerating, buses, trucks and much horn noise. The noise level was unspeakably bad. We raised this with hotel staff - they were very helpful in offering us two further equally noisy alternatives. They didn't have a quiet room to offer because the hotel is surrounded by roads. We phone the local rep who moved us to the less glamourous Casino Hotel (this is also probably a lot cheaper than the price we paid). In summary if you don't mind a lot of traffic noise this hotel is well appointed and the staff were very helpful. If you like tranquility and sleep after a long trip this hotel is not great for that.
