Nothing much has changed in this place, an old fine dining joint for business and other executives to unwind on weekends or after a busy weekday. The restaurant is quite affordable for the food, service, ambience and environment provided; though the loud live music could do better with a teeny bit tuning down. For travelling guests, it's an elegant yet affordable place to stay. Has a bar and coffee shop where they also serve beer. The coffee shop used to be open 24 hrs but we've not checked that out lately.
I have been at this Hotel Twice. Stayed there only for a single night twice. It was really a great experience. The staff are really courteous. Check in and Check out was quick and the service was pretty good too . The Room is really big, I guess most of them are considering I have been there twice. May be because its an old generation hotel, but I must say it was a pleasant experience every time I go there. May be its me, I am a nostalgic person who loves to dwell in old times. The furniture designs and interiors are nostalgic and imperial. Takes you back to the 80's. But I don't complain as it was well furnished, Clean and all. If you want a new generation Hotel, this is not where you have to go. There was ample furniture, cupboards, Dressing Table etc and still a lot of free space. Not congested like the most of the new hotels The only thing I can complain is that there was no remote for Air conditioning. It was working well, and it had a controller mounted on the wall. But I could have really used a remote to control the temperature when in bed . T. V was not receiving the Signals from Set top box, I complained and they were quick to come and fix it really quick. I didn't bother to ask what the problem was, may be it was me being a dump who couldn't turn the thing on Bathroom was clean, As was the towel they provided. Shampoo, Soap, shoe shiner etc was provided. They hang the news paper and the breakfast coupons in a paper bag early morning and you can have the complimentary breakfast till 9 or 10 from the restaurant. For those who want the breakfast in their room, I guess you have to pay. They obviously can't bring up the whole buffet to every single room. Too much to ask for. (I have seen people complaining about that, so . Breakfast was great, so much to choose from. I have read comments like its just "Idly" every day. Its not true, It was a wide variety of choice they offered me and they constantly takes care of you inquiring if we want something else though it was a buffet. Wonder what people expect from a 3 Star Hotel. The Room service was quick and neat too. The Location can't be better. You can reach the place from Airport for about 500 Rs in a taxi. Its near to the marine drive, Bus Stand, railway Station and what not. I don't think anyone can complaint about the Location I didn't have to face the problems some travellers said, May be I am lucky, may be I am not so picky. For me, it was a good experience anyways. For all the people who wants to go back to the past and not to a new generation hotels with those modern interiors, this hotel is Not too bad to check out at least once
