Based on the reviews on trip advisor I decided to stay at this hotel for two nights. To be honest my experience was very disappointing and therefore though I had paid for two nights in advance, I had to check out after 1st night itself and check in to another hotel. Excepting the lobby and corridors the entire hotel including the elevator, rooms and toilets need renovation. The room, though fair in size was congested. The furniture seemed very old and was in urgent need of replacement. So were all the electrical points. So far as the lighting goes there was one tube light, which flickered many times along with couple of CFL lamps. This gave me an impression of some kind of old type of a lodge. Looking at the condition of the plumbing, fittings and the tiles the toilet too seemed very old. Seemed no replacement had been carried out for the last 25 years. Most disappointing part was that the hotel has no restaurant and such either you go out for the dinner or ask the hotel tto get you something from adjacent Sarvana Bhavan. I did ask them to get me some dosas. To my horror the hotel boy got me the dosas, but everything in a plastic bag including sambar and chutneys. They did not even provide crockery and cutlery. All they I was given was a shiny silver paper plate to eat my dinner of dosas. Next morning too I was provided Tea in a paper cup with sugar in a plastic bag. Same thing was repeated for breakfast which I did not feel like eating. Fortunately the room had a good LCD TV and a split air conditioner besides a clean towel for the bath. I remember reading some reviews about this hotel saying that the hotel has a homely atmosphere. I don’t agree as I don’t think anyone is served meals in plastic bags and on paper plate and tea in paper cups. Some more reasons for my checking out was the poor quality of sleep I had first due to loud music being played by the club on the ground floor till past mid night and being disturbed by the noise and honking of trucks, busses and other vehicles at intervals from 4 am. Certainly had a disappointing experience.
