I booked this hotel for 4 days to take in the Pooram festivities. Although at a higher rate at this time it was worth it to have a 5th floor room with direct view of fireworks and one of the elaborately decorated festival towers (see photos).
Manager Francis Joy was the best host anyone could hope to have, with the most professional service. From my very first email enquiry to bookings, check-in, finding out about attractions, etc. all matters were handled expertly.
While enjoying the melee of the Pooram my passport got lost. I was immediately resigned to an unwanted extension of my holiday in India. Never to fear, Manager Francis liaised with the police and led me back through the massive crowds to retrieve my passport at a police control station. How I could ever recover a lost passport from police who were in the midst of managing crowds of tens or hundreds of thousands was nothing short of miraculous. Just two hours had lapsed.
The hotel itself was a respite from the heat and the crowds and perfectly situated to go to and fro temple grounds and exhibitions. I have to say at the end of the day that the people make all the difference. I was in the best of hands at the Pooram International.
