Good location with quick services

Posted 12 Aug, 2016

I stayed in Hotel Danaa Orchid. The location of the hotel was good. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and quick in services. The room allotted to me was good and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. I ate food outside the hotel. There were no activities in the hotel.

Average experience

Posted 16 Feb, 2016

as per my choice, the room was not given, the receptionist is just, dominating over the customer. no proper food arrangement. But, nearby there are very good, vegetarian, restatauratnts are there, with boarding also. so, next, time, i will stay in other near by hotels only.

Waste of money and nightmare to stay here

Posted 2 Jan, 2016

We tried to book this Hotel via Online and the owner himself confirmed the booking. And charged us double of the tariff. Though they charge extra from the booking but they gave us very terrible services. No one of the staff takes any responsibility of any of their jobs. And in the name of Manager no one addresses your concerns, in fact we saw 2 different managers on 2 days of our stay. to the room boy and manager whatever issue reported falls on deaf years. Ideally if you do counter booking these fellows have charges as 1500 for Deluxe Double bed AC room and Rs 300 for an extra bed per day. So Ideally for 6 person they should charge for 2 AC rooms. Rs 7200 at max for 2 days, But we ended up paying them Rs 9070 in total. Even if they did not had any AC rooms and the AC in our room were not working, they were not willing to take and address any complains. Don't trust the complain number at the Reception it belongs to owner who is an equivalent fraud guy, who did not even show up to us after repetitive requests during Check out to settle the bill and we have to face rude behavior of their staff and managers. In the liew of services when we demanded a proper bill, they could provide us bill of only Rs7468 that too the managers standing on the counter was literally reluctant to sign in it and ave us only after we made two calls o actual owner and expect you to stay only in room and report your problem again and again at-least 5 times a day. Trust me they are number 1 FRAUD guys attaching bills for proof.I had a vid recorded too to note their reluctancy to produce bills but unable to post as we don't have anywhere 2 upload video.

Spacious rooms and close to the bus stand

Posted 12 Nov, 2014

Just beside the busstand , so not very difficult to locate it.Compartively, it is in a rather quiet space than the other hotels.The rooms are spacious enough for 3 people.The room service is a bit clumsy but manageable. Most importantly, you can do whatever you wish here, there's no one to stop you.
