Nice clean spacious rooms. Worth it !
Once I reached the hotel at around 10 pm, I was told there is no booking in my name. I was told by the hotel reception that OYO never informed them about my booking. This happened after I had talked to OYO over phone 3 times on the day of my visit. I had also confirmed my visit on 2 separate days by SMS.
As the hotel expressed their inability to accommodate me, I called up OYO and gave them complete details, after which they put my call on hold and ultimately their number got disconnected. This process happened about 5 to 6 times, as each time a new person picks up the phone and I have to repeat everything. Ultimately someone called Ali from OYO talked to me and said that a major incident had happened in the hotel and police has cordoned off the area. He suggested I check in to some hotel on Mumbai-Nashik highway. This was a white lie, as I was sitting in the hotel reception. After lot of discussion I was given a room (for which the original guest did not turn up) for 1 night (even though I had confirmed booking for 2 nights). Ofcourse OYO took full credit of allotting the room whereas in reality I was lucky.
And yes, there is no food in the hotel. And when I checked in, it was past midnight. So, I had no option but to walk to the state transport bus stand some 4 kms away. You can imagine how miserable I felt.
I might add that the hotel staff told me that on that particular day 6 separate groups who had confirmed bookings were turned back as OYO never informed the hotel.
