The front desk really did a terrible job welcoming us. In fact, they set a bad tone for our 1 night stay. We waited 20 minutes for our room to be ready despite it being an hour after the checkin time. While we waited, the front desk wouldn't give us the internet code.
The lobby is dated and the furniture smells a little musty, but otherwise it is clean.
The room was right near the elevator and there was a strong chemical smell throughout the floor. We couldn't tell if it was air freshener or wet paint. Also, there were moth balls in the drawers in the room and the smell of mold.
That said, the room was super clean, but the furniture was worn out. The floor was probably super once, but now is covered in stains. The TV worked, but the volume was inconsistent from channel to channel. One channel would be super loud, the next too quiet to hear.
The bathroom is totally dated and could use an upgrade. But again, it was clean and functional.
The breakfast in the room was surprisingly good. Nothing special, but given the rest of the hotel, we were worried. Still, it was tasty enough.
The location is good, but the front desk really isn't there to help you enjoy your stay. They don't have lots of information about the area to share.
It's always a risk choosing a 3-star hotel in India. The quality varies a lot...If the price were cheap, we might stay there again. but more likely, we would risk a different place we'd never stayed at.
