Smart, pleasant and (I suspect) under-rated
Posted Feb 6, 2012
I picked this hotel on the basis of other reviews, and I was glad I did. They knew my name as I walked through the door at 8am, and organised a room within 20 minutes even though my check-in was 12 noon. I stayed for 8 nights. A large pleasant hotel, with comfortable rooms. Air conditioned (my a/c stopped working after 5 nights, and was fixed within 5 minutes of my call to reception). Satellite TV with plenty of English & USA channels. Room comfortable and quiet. A walk-in shower area but no bath, which may be normal in India, I am not sure. Room thoughtfully designed - nice stained glass panelling, very good lighting - even the bed headboard had concealed backlighting. WiFi in room but as I had no computer I used the hotel's small business centre:2 PCs and a printer for minimal £.
All staff very attentive & helpful. I hired a bicycle for my stay and they looked after it, "valet parking" it each night to keep it safe. The food was tops. I couldn't figure out how all my meals turned out so well, as I ordered south indian, north indian, chinese, mexican and western, which is a tall order for a chef. I discovered they have multiple nationality chefs and your order goes to the appropriate one. Incidentally the western food like a chicken sandwich comes with fries, though these aren't mentioned on the menu. Some non-Indian food such as ham & sausage were not available but that's hardly surprising in Hyderabad. Breakfast buffet range was enormous, but I stuck to toast & coffee.
