Our room was booked for us by a travel agent. Upon entering hotel, we were impressed with the decor of the lobby etc. However, we were shocked when we were led to our room which was located in what seemed like a second class wing of the hotel. The room looked like a shabby version of the pictures we saw on the hotel's website. Also, we had requested a second bed for a third person, and this was just dumped at the front of the room between the main bed and the bathroom. We had to move it to the side of the room ourselves. When moving a small couch to make room for this bed, we discovered a huge amount of dust underneath which went everywhere. Yuck.
The bathroom was also lacklustre. It was very dated, and the sliding door to it rocked forward and backward everytime we slid it shut. The shower, while large, had very poor drainage. I ended up using the hand-held shower because the water flow was lower and resulted in less standing water.
The Indian restaurant downstairs served tasty North Indian food, but it was ridiculously overpriced (US$100 for mineral water, 1 starter and 2 mains).
The breakfast buffet had a decent spread, but service was very slow. One morning I waited more than 30 minutes for pancakes.
