It was wonderful experience to stay in Hotel Samrat. Good services, good atmosphere. Good location, near to the city. Rooms are very comfortable, maintained very well. Hat's off to the management. The boy are very good and taking care of customer.
We have been to Jog falls in Shimoga district to enjoy the water falls. We booked the hotel for refreshment in Samrat Guest house. This hotel was average and rooms were not so good. Even the local foods was not so good and hygienic. It's better to cook and eat. Also there were no good hotels near the destination.
I had tried booking at this hotel through the Youth hostel helpline for bookings.. not sure what the misunderstanding was, I was told to come but guess there was some confusion. I was backpacking alone and landed at the place at 7.30 pm in monsoon.. which is pretty dark and misty in the rains. The front desk was highly non cooperative and rude. He said we don't take single ladies nor single men. I was left stranded to find an accommodation despite multiple requests and in spite of them having empty rooms. He almost laughed in my face as I seeked a bed for the night. I was left all alone to scout for an accommodation in a place I knew nothing about in dark with a 15 yrs old middle man who was taking me around on his bike for finding some homestay. It was seriously a rude shock. If its a youth hostel they need to be sensitive to people travelling solo at such time of the day. He just cared a damn. Sad experience.
