Avoid this hotel !!! I hope this speaks everything.
We booked this hotel through our friend who had worked here earlier. Little did he know that the hotel had pathetically changed since he left the place.
Best Experience: The front office and kitchen staff were the most helpful. They allowed us into the kitchen to prepare some medicine for my son since his stomach was upset.
Worst Experience: We had booked a mini-suite as recommended by our friend. But surprise awaited us.
The rooms were pathetic with cobwebs around, dust from the sofa and curtains. Looked like the windows were not open for many days, room smelled bad and had poor ventilation. Rooms were carpeted though.
Very poor service. We had to dial the reception / house keeping several times to get some extra bed spreads and pillows. The bed was small, and it looked like they had given us a queen sized bed for a king sized cot. Room Heater was not provided though we had specifically requested and were ready to pay for it. Funny answer given was \'since it is not season all the room heaters are under repair\'.
My friend had to face more worse a situation - The water heater in their room was not functioning and they had to use our room to take hot water. Later we found that there was no fuse in the heater and it was not replaced despite requesting several times.
Food was average, and we would\'nt like to comment about it.
Being a long weekend we had no alternative, but to stay in this place (also considering our friend who had booked for us). We finally decided to leave the place after 2 nights since neither of our families were enjoying the stay.
It was very clear that they had insufficient staff at the hotel ... through out our stay we saw 2 boys running around for room service + house keeping + restaurant, 2 for front office, 1 (general) manager , 3 in the kitchen ... to run a 27 Room 3 Star accommodation.
During check-out, the general manager stressed that the water heater was functioning and we had to take him to the room to show him the fuse point, also point out the cobwebs, dust and condition of the room.
Overall, we would like to forget this experience and caution others.
Nalapad hotel was not my first choice but due to urgency I booked a hotel though stay Zilla and were fooled by both of them. This hotel is not at all recommended for families and couples not even for business and friends. Only a few odd persons visit this hotel and get trapped. The location of this hotel is very bad on wood cock road with no access to bus stand. The restaurant inside is below average with prices sky rocketing. Prices of menus are very higher than 3 star hotels of Bangalore. Rooms are very shabby and not maintained over the years.
Though the staff service was helpful, it is strictly not recommended to stay here unless all your options are exhausted. We booked online through stay Zilla and were given room in first floor without TV working. We spent nearly for about 500 rs for auto rickshaws and cabs from this hotel to city which was promised as free in the web site.
I stayed there with my family and planned for sightseeing. It's a contemporary hotel with an impressive architecture. The rooms are extremely comfortable and suits my budget. Ayurvedic treatments and yoga therapy are also available for the guests at this hotel. We can order food in our rooms too. Travellers can enjoy sightseeing as well as some activities in hotel too like boating etc. A stay here is sure to be a memorable one.
The location of the hotel was easily located and this hotel was referred to me by my friend. The staff service was good, helpful and quick to attend us. The appearance of the hotel was good. The room was spacious, neat and clean, the room was cleaned on daily basis. All the amenities were good in condition. All the amenities were good in condition. Hot and cold water facility was provided for twenty four hours. We had a hill view from the room. The food was good and the quality of it was also good. There was no any problem in check in and check out. There were no any activities conducted in this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for other travellers. They did not arrange for any sightseeing facility. Overall, my stay was worth for money.
Reception people were polite, friendly, helpful and cooperative. Appearance, exterior and interior were hygienic and well-maintained. The room was medium, but neat and comfortable with clean pillows, bedspreads and blankets and they provided TV and geyser facility in the room and there was 24 hours hot water facility available. My room had its own balcony overlooking a lawn area and greenery view where I would sit. Location was good, the surroundings were neat and clean and there were shopping malls nearby. They provided more varieties of food, the quality and taste of the food was very good. I stayed here for a day with family for relaxation in September 2013. There were no activities.
