Circumstances, I checked-in this hotel, made it a 5 Star for me. But in normal course, I would like to avoid. Rooms were Ok. Receptionists were good. No room service. No Ala Carta service in restaurant. Travel Desk was hopeless, unreliable and exploiting the situation.

The first impression at check in counter itself was very bad. The senior reception lady was rudely behaving with her co staff with anger. It was completely an unprofessional behavior & something not taken rightly by me.
