Unfortunately our Rickshaw walla had no clue about this place so we had a lot of trouble locating the hotel. After much trouble as we felt relieved we were asked to produce our address proofs, usually hotels would accept our pancards and be happy with it but they insisted on both of us producing our address proof. My husband had his handy but I had to dig mine out of my laptop. All the while I was worried that we might have to turn back and would loose money. Thankfully the lady at the reception found a pendrive so that she could print it. We do understand that they have to follow rules but seriously could we have atleast been shown our rooms!!
With this disappointment on our minds we went upto our room on second floor. I don't usually require hot water so can not comment on availability but we were happy to find clean room and bathroom. Now it was not a sparkly room the fixtures were old but the upkeep was decent. You can't expect much at the price we paid.
The linen was clean but still had a few stains. We also found quite a few black ants crawling on our bed the next day. Still it was a good accommodation.
The winning point of the hotel is its location-around 600m from taj and an awesome view from its roof top. We had a chowmein after we had just arrived and did not find it good but our lunch the next day was quite good and decently priced though you can definitely find cheaper places nearby but the view and breeze was worth it along with tasty food.
They also serve Beer but that's it for liquor, I can't tell you if they actually manage to keep it chilled.
I would recommend this hotel for a cheap clean stay close to taj and if you do book it do spend time on the roof top.
