“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

The hotel is easy to find, very central and near the famous Sudder Street. The room is comfortable and really worth the price. It is clean and has everything that you may need during your stay. The service sometimes is good and sometimes is disappointing. It depends on who serves at the front desk in a particular moment. The breakfast is ok.

Located on the Marquis street, very close to new market, esplanade, park street etc. Rooms are large, well furnished and clean. Food including the breakfast buffet is good. They have parking and the front desk is efficient and helpful. The hotel is in a locality which boasts of several restaurants, travel agents, street food joints. Overall, value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room above 2nd floor

Serviced was great as my husband & I arrived at 1:30am and 5 staff members were at front desk to greet us with welcome drinks/fresh towels. We booked a deluxe room, which was clean, had a small seating area, window over-looks side of hotel & 2 twin beds. Not the best bed set-up for us but sufficient for 1 night. En-suite bathroom was clean but shower & tub were average looking. Hot water in shower wasn't working but tub was.

We were woken up by loud construction sounds in the morning. Breakfast was included, which had a good selection of Indian & some western foods. Only problem was eating area was very small so tables were limited. Restaurant had a good menu (mid-range $$) & food was delicious.

Overall, staff members were great & helped answered all of our questions. Hotel lobby, breakfast area & restaurant were clean. We checked out Victoria Memorial, which was about a 15 minute walk from hotel. Also, look up "Hot Kati" rolls at nearby street vendor as it's a great snack.

We stayed twice at this hotel, in a de luxe room. The furnishings, hot water, beds all fine. Included in the price was an excellent buffet breakfast, with western and Indian choices. Only problem was that the breakfast area was small, and people had to wait for vacant tables. The hotel also had a restaurant, although we discovered it almost by chance, and some guests probably did not know it was there, We ate dinner there twice, and found the food and service good. The reception staff were all also very polite and helpful.
The location was ideal, close to a metro station, one block from Sudder Street, and easy walking distance to the market and the Maidan.

The hotel is noisy ,the walls are porous .most times we had to call the front desk & ask them to speak to the guests to keep the volume down . one instance a group of men in the adjacent room drinking & hollering creating a raucous, made it near impossible to sit & watch tv in our room .
The corridors need to be carpeted so that the noise is muffled & contained .

Room Tip: One cannot avoid the noise ,however hard one may try .

This hotel was one of my personal 'not good' experiences. I think they are in constant maintenance and renovation without realizing that their guests are getting disturbed. My rooms bathroom flush was leaking and they came to repair it at 2am as I couldn't sleep looking at the criminal waste of water and the sound of it.

+'s: Location, light on pocket

^'s (areas of improvement): maintenance, breakfast spread, gym (not there), staff response and alertness.

It looks better than most of the hotels in that locality and I think that is what puts it at an advantage.

So if you are looking for pocket friendly yet prime locale stay then Kempton might work for you.
