Paid Rs 15200 in advance for 2 nights. Got Room 2,ground floor. No window at all. Three of 6 spot lights hanging out of their sockets and not working. Nowhere to place suitcase to unpack. No drinking glasses. No ventilation at all in the sealed bathroom. Two of 6 spots worked rest falling out of the ceiling. Mirror cracked . Toilet bowl and seat stained.One bar of soap and nothing else. No toilet hand shower. Seedy and unmaintained Reception/ house manager on duty from 9.30 to 18.30. Otherwise property is unmanned. No security at night. Nothing available in this hotel except breakfast . That is spartan with filthy old mugs.The toast is toasted on one side only which epitomizes the meanness of this hotel. The so called pool is chipped, full of leaves and deteriorating. The owner should be thoroughly ashamed.. Avoid this place at all cost. You have been warned

The place looks very artistic . But facilities are lacking. There is no health faucet in the toilet. Apparently the owner is an European and didn't want it. But one should mention this in the site if you are only toilet paper friendly. Basic amenities like drinking glasses, kettle to heat water are lacking. And the irony is there is no one around to ask. Understaffed and poorly managed. The only positive is the location but there are hundred others in the same budget that provide much better value for the money. And surely better service

Dear Kausi, Thanks for your review, it looks very strange, as you may have looked, on google, for the same dates, the reviews from others guest are not at all the same. I understand that you enjoyed this artistic place, but unfortunately, you did not enjoyed the service, in a place where we have 24/7 staff inside. To whom you can ask when ever you want tea, cofee, juice. We decided not to provide kettle, for this reason only. Happy you enjoyed the location, but if you find another place, with such big rooms and a pool, plus all the private terrasse we have here, you will be defenitly very lucky, because, I am following that daily, and we are for the same kind of category very cheap compair, to the others who also have pool in this part of the city, and we are not a lot of place who luckily have a pool. Best regards,

We stayed at their newly opened property which had its teething issues. A/c not working , mosquitoes etc. which is fine , however the staff are generally too “busy” to be hospitalble. No kettle in the room asked for coffee and it won’t come because they were busy making breakfast ( which btw is bread and butter , store bought, don’t expect any fruit with it!) . Overall ok for a day or 2 . Definitely not recommended with family as they’re prolly used to back packers and will not cater to the special needs of kids ( extra milk etc ) without frowning at you .
