“Horrendous Service and Cleanliness”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

I am actually surprised there are any positive reviews of this place. This place is run by amateurs who are just playing hotel. The fact this is owned by the Welcomm group shows how far this hotel chain has fallen.

The price for this hotel is definitely not worth it in the least. Even if they charged half it would be barely worth it.

Here a few of the low lights of this place:

1) We had to switch rooms since the room we checked in had hair all over the bed from the previous occupant.
2) The bathroom lighting is so dim you can hardly see your face to shave in the mirror.
3) The water was lukewarm and low pressure
4) The corridor carpets were full of stains and absolutely filthy
5) The hotel faces MG road which is very busy
6) The phones in the room were not working and even the room we switched to were not working either
7) Wifi is not free and its expensive and the signal is very poor
8) Pillows are lumpy and uncomfortable
9) The bed itself was not very comfortable

We were going to leave by 4:30am and would not be able to avail of the breakfast buffet, so we asked if they would pack something for us to take with us, they assured me that they could pack us some sandwiches, then room service called me to ask what kind of sandwiches.

At 4:30am nothing showed up, and around 5:00 we started to check out and called the front desk asking about the promised sandwiches, he said they were running late and asked what kind of sandwiches we wanted, when we reached the lobby still no sign of the elusive sandwiches and we had to leave.

This place should really be blacklisted. It used to be called Kandhari hotel and hence its an old hotel with very little remodeling.

We stayed for one night on a FC club room. Spacious and clean. Good buffet breakfast.

We were there for a marriage reception arranged in the hotel boutique hall - food and service was good.

I would like to come back.

The hotel is maintained very well and the staff are very helpful to the guests. The hotel is centrally located in Vijayawada on Bandar Road (now called M.G. Road). The rooms are very well done with mostly modern amenities. The TV in my room was an old tube television and not a modern LCD/LED tv. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and neat.

Cons:
They have banquet halls located at the hotel where weddings and other functions are held and when these events happen, the hotel gets really noisy and the lobby area is filled with people. There is no place to sit in the lobby area when this happens. Not much seating is available in the lobby area.
There are 2 restaurants in the hotel, a 24 hour coffee shop and a Chinese restaurant. The chinese restaurant is sometimes occupied by corporate events and the dining choice is limited to the coffee shop.
The hotel is located on a very busy road, just like all the major hotels in Vijayawada, and you will hear the traffic noise in your room.

Pros:
Rooms are good. Bathroom had amenities such as a hair dryer, toothbrush/toothpaste, shampoo, and soap. A complimentary bottle of water was provided in the room and another bottle of water for coffee/tea. There is a coffee/tea maker with coffee and tea, to make your own.
Complimentary breakfast was excellent and a huge spread.
Service is really good and prompt.

Room Tip: Take a room on the higher floors and away from the road.

They are maintaining international standards.
Ambiance and service is extra-ordinary. Taste of the food is yummy. 24 hrs food is available. Sambar rice is very good. Break fast also available here. It is located in MG road. Accessible to all places in the city.
