The hotel was nice and the staff were nice, but we had some issues finding the place and then with ordering food. We were sick and needed something plain. We'd been on a 20hr train ride and hadn't eaten so we were starving. We ordered fries, they were covered in spices. Then we ordered the veg noodles and asked explicitly for no spice, it was extremely hot. They said they didn't hear us ask, we ordered it again with no spice, again it was spicy. This was over a series of phone calls to reception in which they seemed to understand us, and their english was great, but the food kept coming back spicy. We gave up on the noodles and ordered fried rice, thinking it would be plain. It was so spicy that we wouldn't be able to eat it even if we weren't ill. We gave up and went hungry that night. Other than that it was ok, the water was hot. The bed was cold but we asked for more blankets and they supplied them. But having not eaten for 20 hrs we were pretty grumpy with staff seeing as they seemed to understand us every time we asked for plain food. And we had to pay for it all.
