Was it even a star hotel? To start off with, when we checked into the room, I was completely disappointed! The room was way too small for any given standard. And the bellboy wouldn't leave the room until i tipped him (?!?!). Let me break it down:
Check-in: Our flight got delayed and so we reached the hotel later than expected (around 9:30 PM). We had to wait for full 30 mins before we got our rooms allocated! In the meantime, we thought we would have dinner and went over to the restaurant.
The charger point: Clearly not been working for a long time. The point was damaged and the person who was staying before had tried to set it right using the hotel-pencil. The pencil's lead was broken and the plug had marks of the pencil trials (Nobody bothered to set it right or to check the basics - was the pencil even sharpened?!?). Not to mention, there was no pen to use in the room either. So the only plug point that was working (apart from the one for the TV) was the shaver-point in the restroom and that was where I had to charge my mobile all night.
Design Fault: The TV set-top box was placed perpendicular to the bed and the remote does not work if you're on the bed. you need to get off your bed and use your remote (Whoa! What a brilliant design!). This was just plain simple logic and to imagine such a big brand missing out on these simple points is just plain simple frustrating!
The only good thing I would rate about this hotel were the staff - Extremely friendly and almost made up for all other problems we faced. The restaurant had decent options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Overall - Average and absolutely no value for money!
