Where to start? We expected more from a Radison,had we known, we would have stayed at the airport hotel. This hotel is in a very dirty, run down area but that is most places in India. What made it worse, was how incredibly noisy it was. People running up and down the hallways, yapping on their cell phones keeping everyone awake.
The internet was horrible, which is something I need at all times, the carpet in the hallways are vile and filthy. Luckily the rooms have no carpets - just disgusting. I was scared of the beds but didn't want to think about what might be hiding in them.
The sidewalk to enter the hotel is almost non-existant. All broken and wet - not sure what the wetness was that we trod through.
We asked for a radio taxi in the morning, after a horrible night's sleep. I think the guy working there, called his friend. It was not a taxi cab at all - some old ratty van. We were told 500-600 Rupees. Half way there they guys tries to shake us down for more money.
We didn't have much choice but to shut our mouthes because we needed the ride but at the airport, we gave him the agreed upon amount. Also, the water in the morning was freezing cold. Very disappointed in this hotel.
if you have to take early morning flight - or be there 2 hours as we did, don't expect breakfast because the restaurant only opens at 7:00 a.m.
