Not what I thought it would be
Posted Feb 23, 2015
I am from U.S. and a native English speaker. Room was pretty bleak and not at all like the photo in their online ad. They had placed mothballs over the bathroom sink drain and, even after I disposed of them, I could not get rid of the awful stink they left behind (I was there for 12 days!) Had trouble getting hot water from the shower tap. Also, bathroom not very clean. If you are accustomed to using toilet paper, bring a roll. Not sure how much they carry in stock.Communication with staff was challenging as no one had a basic English language skill. My guess is Falcon Nest caters primarily to Indians. The common area was spacious, the little fridge handy, but no functioning kitchen. Balcony was pleasant with view of Bengal Bay and I often had my breakfast there. The young staff who brought my food to the room were very sweet and curious about my being a foreigner. Of course we couldn't communicate well but we ended up posing in photos together.
