First the pros...
1) It Is very close to the Taj and so if you want to see it at sunrise the location is perfect.
2) There is an in house restaurant which is convenient if you want a snack.
3) The breakfast was passable...
I Tried to think of more pros but i couldnt so...
1) Miserable service.
2) No Hot Water and if you are going in winter this is a problem.
3) The very fact that it is so close to the Taj means that it is very far from everything else and you will need some sort of transport to get you around.
4) Did i say miserable service?
5) The room wasnt clean and smelt of smoke when we entered.
6) The pillows were stained with oil and blood! although the room service hurriedly covered them up with clean pillow covers.
7) They could not get the AC to work and when i complained they said that its cold anyway and i should make do without it.
8) When i complained the next day i was told that its just one of these things that happen so they were sorry and they couldnt do anything about it.
It was only after i threatened to call the police they grudgingly cancelled my food bill of 800RS. Considering i had almost spent 4000Rs on the room i felt that that was a bit rich.
They will obviously need to raise their game but i doubt they will.
