the rooms here were clean and ours was spacious (room 103). the guest who stayed here before us left some sweat pants and boxer shorts behind the door and the staff hadn't noticed... beakfast is basic and don't expect what you ordered - the let down of this place is that the staff speak next to no english so it is very diffucult even asking for simply things. otherwise it's a good place to stay. taxis aren't too expensive if you get the driver to turn on the meter (starts at 10 rupees). when you stop at your destination double the fare shown on the meter then add 2 rupees. tip we picked up whilst we were here! we also recommend dining at BBQ restaurant on park st. amazing service and fresh, delcious food.
