Rooms were OK: good size & clean enough..but there are 2 reasons I wouldn't come back here..the food from their restaurant was awful and expensive (can easily be solved by eating elsewhere)..the real issue here had to do with the attitude of the staff..the moment we arrived there were 3 helpers who literally grabbed our bags from our hands even if we told them we could manage on our own..one of them was only carrying a plastic bag we had with cookies and nuts..after checking-in we even had the receptionist carrying our roomkey so as soon as we got to our room, we had 3 "bell-hops" waiting for their tip..we gave them INR 100 to split and right away a discussion began between them..the receptionist was smarter..he went inside our room "explaining" where the bed, light switch & mini-fridge were located..he announced he was leaving and we thanked him but since we weren't reaching our pockets, he then went on to where to find the towels, sink, tv, remote control, ashtray, and if we liked our beds (?)...we got the message and tipped him as well just so he could leave..they said they had WiFi but not working at the moment (network company's fault) but that we could use the Business Center where they obviously charged a ridiculous rate (INR 2 per minute if I remember well)...good thing we were only there for 1 night..
