When readind this, keep in mind, that you are paying European prices in India.
First off: the “Double” room, is not a double room, but a twin, meaning it contains two sepparate beds and not one. You gotta hand it to them: nowhere on MakeMyTrip do they claim to be offering a double bed (except of course, by calling the room a“Corporate Double”, but according to the manager on duty, this does not signify the room as containing a double bed, make of it what you will). The room is clean by indian standards, not so by european standards (and remember, you are paying 54 EUR for a hotelroom... in India!). Towels were missing from the room by check-in, it took over 20 minutes for them to be organised. The bell-boy firmly stood his ground, silently requesting a tip, which he got; but as we later noticed, ommited telling us about such unimportant things as a power switch for the hot water, which should be activated at least 30 min before the desired shower.
In my eyes completely unacceptable for this price and the business style of accommodation, is the missing WiFi. Yes, you may use a lone computer in the lobby, but it costs 50 Rupies per hour and, get this, is a mobile/UMTS connection which the reception keeps behind the counter and plugs into the computer on demand. The managers uninvited explanation was that a government license is needed for WiFi and this being a new hotel (1 1/2 years according to him), hadn’t been granted – the Lonely Planet lists WiFi as “being installed”... in quotation marks. Oh well.
Even a business hotel should hand out a city map, even when traveling for business it’s nice to have an idea where to see a little of the city, after a stressfull day sealing deals.
The location is good, a lot of important sites are within walking distance. The breakfast is, if you are not into indian breakfast or eggs, nothing to brag about. And so, in the end, remains a bitter aftertaste which says: there have got to be better deals in town – much better deals – than this place.
Ensure that you are getting what you expect: a twin is labeled a double.
