This hotel is in a truly grotty, dirty location - and just a few metres from a frantically busy dual carriageway. No restaurant - food on room service only (apparently brought from restaurant on the other side of the dual carriageway).
Hotel owned by a Jain, so alcohol officially prohibited ; but the staff will smuggle in beer for foreign guests - at a price. We briefly met the owner, and he was charming. But I think he needs to keep a better eye on the way his hotel is being run.
Floor dirty. Water tepid. Shower challenging - had to keep a button manually depressed throughout.
We left at 0400, and as we reached the bottom of the stairs we found our exit blocked by a locked steel shutter, which had to be opened by a night watchman - once he had woken up. Security - of course. But there was no other way out, so a potential DEATHTRAP in the event of a fire.
We had settled our bill in full just before going to bed the night before, but as we were leaving the receptionist informed my husband that we still owed 250 rupees for something or other. He wanted paying, and in cash. My husband, sick to death of this place, started shouting the odds as I made my way out to the waiting taxi. Interesting, this - the taxi driver, who could see and hear what was going on, turned to me and said "Cheating, Madam?". "Yes", I replied. "This very bad hotel", he said. "Always cheating. Everybody know. Bad people". I rest my case, other than to say that this is a hotel to be avoided at all costs.
