Hotel Ilapuram

Reviewed 7 October 2013

Once upon a time this was the best hotel in City but now its degraded its value. The hotel's maintenance is not good. In the rooms furniture or fittings are bit old and not maintaned well. Not only in the rooms but in all the common places and function halls maintenance is very poor. Unhygienic and smells a lot. only thing is center of the city and easily accessible to most of the places.

I have stayed with Family on 3 occasions (Apr 2012, Dec 2012, June 2013) in the Hotel. We enjoyed the stay thoroughly.

The Ambience and environs are very good.

The food in the Restaurant was also good. It is real value for Money apart from its proximity to the Railway Station.

One of the worst maintained hotels. Absolutely no maintenance on the facilities. The fungus coated toilets.Very poor service quotient. And very unprofessional employees. I wonder how Cleartrip Vouches for such ill-maintained hotels!

We stayed here for a night on our drive from Vizag to Secunderabad, & all we were looking for was a clean, concubines place to stay. Ilapuram is conveniently located, but that is all that can be said about it. It is a dirty ( bordering on unhygienic) dump. One look at the bathroom made me rush back to my car for my slippers. Use the sink, and the drain overflowed on my feet. The shower head was clogged, and the walls were stained. The doormat was do bad, that it is best avoided altogether.
The blankets were well worn and stained, but thankfully the sheets were clean. There was trash in the room leftover from the previous occupants.
Being tired, and wanting an early start, we ordered room service. It was delivered promptly, wrapped in foil with two plastic plates and one spoon to eat from. I've seen roadside stalls do better in serving food.

The main clientele appeared to be 'businessmen' and a steady stream of liquor was flowing into various rooms. All in all, this is not a comfortable place to stay with families. A visit from the health inspector is long overdue for this hotel.

Stayed here in 2011 and had a nasty experience. Booked online for two days of stay and ended up paying for an extra bed which we did not use even though we informed the reception well in advance about not needing it. Only pros is the large spread for breakfast. Bathrooms are average, furnishing is aging and stale smelling. Take care to scrutinize the food bills which are attached to the final room bill as some of them may not be yours. I had two food bills which did not belong to me. I noticed it only after settling the final bill. When I pointed it out, they called the waiter who was responsible and told him the amount would be cut from his salary etc. To me, they said the manager's approval was required for a refund (it was 1000 odd rupees). It was getting late for my train and I left fuming, all in all Rs 2000 shortchanged.

Room Tip: All rooms are same. No good views as the city around is dusty and cluttered.

This was the nearest to the Railway Station,its past its heydays.Not well maintained,however a good decent Buffet breakfast.

There are better Hotels nearby,I can suggest try out Hotel Southern Grand,it is a new Hotel and price is much less than Hotel Ilapuram.

Do not even think about staying here.

I had selected this hotel as it was the nearest to the station among clear trip options.
This hotel is shown as a 3 star rating, which is completely misguiding. It doesnt have any amenities pertaining to that grade.
The food and service is good and fast.
Restaurant looks like some old udupi hotel.
I can rate it 5/10. You can take it only if there is no other option.
If u r visiting with family, then it is ok.
