Needs improvement to get back Excellent hotel

3 out of 5

Posted Feb 19, 2017
Pros: Location. Staff.
Cons: Points mentioned in 'experience'.
1. Bath room shower water flows out of the bathing cabin; this is observed in my last two stays also. 2. The towels (originally white in color) seem to be clean; but need immediate replacement with new ones (they are frayed and faded to light brown color). 3. The food used to be excellent earlier till 2013/2014. But now, it is very spicy and let up on that! Probably it is meeting the local clientele.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Policies for international travels
Was visiting Hyderabad after a long time. My friends and family were stopped from coming to the room. I travel a lot and have been to so many international hotel and never faced such stupid policy. Bathroom had mold and the bedroom floor was in real bad condition. Bed sheets were never changed and towels where never changed. Sorry, wont recommend anybody else. I have decided next time wont be staying at the hotel again.

The linen was terrible, specially the towels in the bathroom looked like it hasn't been replaced in last 5 years. The shampoos and the conditioner were absolutely, like picked up from road side. Food was good and the staff was extremely nice.

4th Visit and Still Love It

Pros: Staff first then the fantastic breakfast buffet the beautiful architecture and lovely rooms.
Cons: Occasional maintenance issues. For example the refrigerator in our room was not working.
Location: Great central location. Visit the Golconda Fort. We also enjoyed dinner at The Minar at their resort on the outskirts of town. Beautiful setting.
What a joy to find this beautiful and peaceful hotel in the middle of Hyderabad. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is unsurpassed with both India and western items. The price is also reasonable. You can find less expensive hotels but you might not have hot water or toilet paper. This place meets 4 star international standards at a 2 star price. This time we were upgraded to a Klub room with a bath tub as well as a seperate shower. Only bath my wife found in India so she relished it. These are only on the top (7th) floor and also include access to a lounge on the same floor.

Pros: Lcoation
Cons: Staff expects tips. It was so bad, that if you don't have change, sometime you ending up giving them lots of money for nothing. Just standing there.
Location: Connects all locations of the city

Cons: Bathrooms need to be updated
Bathroom was sub-standard. Stained sinks, toilet bowl, weak water pressure for shower, hard water. Good restaurant, courteous staff, great breakfast arrangement. It's a perfect budget hotel with all the amenities.
