I don’t understand these reviews about the landmark being “best” and the “awesome” and “perfect hotel”………. I would like to ask the reviewers have you actually been there? Or is it the same landmark?
I am talking about the landmark on the mall road in Kanpur, which is next to some shopping centre building of some sort.
I am no one to judge or question anyone’s review or experience, but I make a suggestion please do not write misguiding reports here. This site is doing a great job to keep at bay the “larger than life” or “sweeter than sweet” portrayal that all hotels make on their own website. This site brings us a actual first hand review and “things to be careful about” from a fellow traveller, that keeps at bay the false promises made by many hotels. Please do not dilute that.
I am a regular visitor to Kanpur and due to lack of choice and against my wishes; I use the landmark hotel for my stay.
There is no system in this hotel I think its wrapped in time 20 years ago, the staff is also of that period, all rusty, not interested, “anything goes” attitude, no care for customer comfort. Maybe the management is not interested in the hotel and it’s just a side business given no attention.
This visit however (couple of days back) was a pleasant surprise, no there is no alternative hotel coming up in Kanpur. But landmark is upgrading itself to match the clientele it receives from all over the world.
I saw an interesting new face coming up, new entry porch a new reception, and if words are to be believed, it’s a new owner and he is going all out to break its past image and culture.
I was also informed that some room floor have also started renovation, and if what I saw coming up in the lobby level is anything to go by, then I am sure the final hotel is going to be a very nice one. It still under construction and a lot is to be done but the lobby feels impressive and one can kind of imagine what its going to be finally.
Maybe the reviewers who I mentioned in the start of the article have written the reviews too soon lol.
Cheers to the landmark team but what comes to my mind is that if you are not going to change the staff and the ways of your operations upto the latest trends then all this building change is a huge waste of money.
Wish to see more changes in my next trip.
Best of luck.
