I wondered why I had been given a "free upgrade." The answer came a few minutes later when I was left in my room and discovered that I had absolutely no hot water and constant banging over my head. I had just arrived after a long journey from the US and needed to sleep. I was told the banging would stop by 5pm and that hot water would be made available. Neither thing happened. I requested to change rooms and was told the hotel was completely sold out, then magically I was shown an available room that was dark and smelled horrible and also had no
hot water. The banging went on for more than 2 days, night and day. As for the lack of hot water, the female manager on duty had the nerve to tell me that Indian people don't require
hot water to shower "at this time of year." I was shocked by this response.
The breakfast buffet was excellent except for the last morning which was a holiday in India. The manager was not working, and it showed. The tables were not cleaned properly for the next guests, with dirty linens and half-full water bottles left on the tables that were supposed to be ready for new people to sit down and eat. I really liked the fact that free and generous mineral water was provided in the room and in all the restaurants. Much appreciated.
Front door staff and bell desk staff very nice and helpful.
