Hive Alwar
Ranked #13 of 23 Hotels in Alwar
Reviewed 12 December 2013

I have stayed in this hotel from 9th to 11th December, with my wife. The hotel offers superb value for money. We booked the normal deluxe room @ Rs 1266/- per night.

Hotel Facilities:
The rooms are great. Bathrooms are also great and all toiletries there are from Shanaz Hussain's. Spacious room. Wifi has a good speed and working for 24X7, The rooms have entry with card- so secured for safety purpose.

Staff
The front office boys at reception, especially Ankit, are very helpful. They do not speak immaculate English or may not have proper training for hotel industry- but they are helpful and courteous. Same goes for restaurant staffs also.

Food
This is one disappointing feature. Complimentary breakfast was good- but never liked their non-veg dishes for lunch/ dinner. The chef used to pour lots of tomato/ tomato puree in every non-veg dishes. Veg-dishes are better, but not up to the mark.

Other Facilities
Did not use gym- so no comment. Swimming pool did not have water (in fact, on 9th Dec. we were the only guests in hotel).

Pros:
1. Great value for money
2. Good staff

Cons:
1. Food
2. Location*
3. Beds#

*This hotel is located outside the city. Getting something after sunset is next to impossible. I wanted to go to market one day to buy some staff, and I chose wrong time- i.e., after sunset. I did not get any auto etc. So had to walk 2 km before I can get something. But during daytime shared autos are available for railway station as well as for main market.

# The floors of the room are wooden, and it produces a loud creaking sound if there is any movement on the bed. So, kind of annoying for sleep.

The booking was done for 2 rooms with King beds. When we checked in, we were not given rooms with king beds. No mineral water was available in the room. One bottle was made available on request. The wifi was not working. All requests to attend to the problem were unattended. The promised fruit platter and cookies platter were not provided. All requests to provided were ignored. However, the rooms were neat and clean.

We used as our base for one overnight stay Aug 2013 while we visited Bhangarh, Siliserh Lake and Alwar from Gurgaon. It is a new property (a year old?) and hence in great condition. While staff generally seemed helpful and cheerful there were many hiccups during our stay. I would have rated it a 4, had it not been for the issues detailed below.

Rooms – Great rooms, has a fridge, kettle in room, comfortable beds and great bathrooms with nice toiletries. Very well maintained and clean.

Food – Breakfast was a buffer – puri/aloo, bread/egg etc Good variety, fresh fruit and quick service. We also had dinner, we tried basic butter chicken,naan etc – we found it a bit spicy, we had asked for non-spicy since we were traveling with kids.

Service – while staff generally seemed helpful and cheerful there were many hiccups during our stay.
We reached the hotel after a long drive only to find out that our request (made during reservation with front office staff on the phone) for an extra bed was not met. And when we went to the room we see that the room had two single beds – which after complaint they joined together. With 2 tired kids in tow, waiting an extra 30mins for room to be ready was very disappointing.
Second, we experienced terrible room service. we had ordered for drinking water which after 3 calls in one hour we did not receive. Finally we had to walk down and get it ourselves.

we had booked a deluxe room, but we were upgraded to a club room, and the room was oood enough for a review, the food was good and the staff was courteous . Stayed here for 2 days and it was fun. The hotel doesnt have a tour operator but fully helps booking one via a travel operator.

Room Tip: Choose a club room, the hotel is a way away from the city, having ur own vehicle helps. Also alwar h...

We went for 3 days to Alwar and wanted to stay at hive after reading the reviews but had a totally disappointing experience on landing there. The prices are very high but if they convert to better facilities and comfort it is worth spending.On reaching there the lady staff at reception was unwelcoming but later we were shown room . The hotel premises bears a unmistakable smell and the lift was horrible. There seemed no guest in hotel inspite of the much created hype about the hotel.The rooms were shabby and had a bad odour., the washroom was awful.We proceeded to see the resturant which was so small n unorganised. The staff there communicated that whatever we would order would take 40 minutes to be prepared. Kidz went to see the terrace pool which was unavailable for use for 2 days. With all these inputs--we rushed out from hotel and made our mind not to stay there.
