Nice hotel, terrible WiFi
Posted Dec 12, 2016 on Hotels
In this day and age, an hotel needs to provide a decent WiFi service if they offer it in the price. This is not the case at the Mehfil. In one of the richest countries in the world which has excellent telecoms and internet services. the WiFi in the room continually dropped, meaning that I lost work or long emails several times as I am simply not used to looking to see if I am still connected. There were long periods when there was no internet at all, sometimes up to a couple of hours. It is scandalous that they cannot get this right.
Apart from that, I enjoyed the hotel. The staff were friendly, it was reasonably well maintained, the room was cleaned daily. I love the local area, which, contrary to other assertions, is not at all dangerous or dodgy. It's full of ethnic restaurants. I ate South Indian, Punjabi, Somali and Eritrean food in the vicinity. A short bus ride took me to an area of Persian and Syrian restaurants.
I'd stay again, but if it were for any length of time, I'd buy a modem for the internet. This is why I am only giving three stars.
