Hotel was located near to the Rajiv Gandhi National Water Park. Location wise, it was good. Service and behavior of the staff was very good. They were very cooperative. Appearance wise, it was also very good. Room was spacious, neat, clean and maintained. TV, freeze, AC or everything was available in the room. Facilities were very good there. Overall, room was excellent. Food was good. There was no problem in check-in and check-out so it was good. Activity was not there and it was below average. Port Blair as a tourist place is a good place to visit. I went there with my family in March. It was a relax kind of holiday.
I had travelled with my wife and 9 month old daughter to Port Blair and Havelock for 7 days, out of which 4 days were planned in Port Blair. We intended to cover Celluar Jail, sound and light show, Ross Island, and Chidiya Tapu while in Port Blair, in addition to it being the transit destination for Havelock island. This was a minimalistic hotel at the center of the city, in the famous and crowded Aberdeen Bazaar. Everything was a stone throws distance away, be it the Rajiv Gandhi jetty (for Ross island), the Cellular Jail and the Pheonix Jetty or the Veer Savarkar airport. Also being in the market could mean we could easily stock up on essentials like water, etc with many shops lined around the hotel. The hotel property and room was clean and tidy and the room was modern, good AC, clean bathroom and latest TV but hot water was an issue, rarely could we get it and not even close to warm. We stayed in 2 rooms (209 and 310), the latter being close to main road and thus had vehicle noise. Although the intent of service was there by the staff but they were simply not knowledgeable enough or inexperienced. The front office staff was a good, right from my experience with booking tickets before going there, to the time taken to check-in or check-out. Also they were almost blank on local information on sightseeing areas or even with helping, guiding booking tickets (Ross island for example). I had paid in advance to book Govt ferry tickets from Havelock to Port Blair. I was informed (after landing up there) that tickets can be booked only 3 days in advance and hence a local agent in Havelock will do so and deliver it to me in my Havelock hotel. After not getting the tickets and my tension increasing, I was given the number of the local agent to follow up directly. I spent time doing at least 5-6 calls and waiting another 2 days before I could get the tickets in hand. The room rent for all days have to be paid 100% in advance, else they don't book your room. We ate most of our meals in Port Blair at J Hotel in order room service itself. This was because of our small baby, who makes it difficult for us to sit in a restaurant table in a civilized manner and also because we wanted her to catch up on her sleep. The food taste and quantity were excellent, service was good and overall good restaurant (including breakfast which was decent) but the prices are pretty high by Andaman standards. The hotel doesn't have any amenities apart from a restaurant, no view, was away from water, beach but it has a market location which meant easy access to auto rickshaws at will. The rooms were clean with good AC and was safe. So if you were not expecting too much in terms of service and were okay to spend 4250K per night, then this was a recommended place.
Location of the hotel was convenient. Staff behaviour was good. Services were nice. Room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. Hotel was fantastic. Port Blair as a destination place is very nice for travellers. Appearance of the hotel was beautiful. Food facility was available there and it was tasty. It was a reasonable hotel. They did not provide any activity in the hotel like swimming pool, spa, etc. Hotel arranged cab facility for sightseeing trip but they charged extra money for this facility. There was delay during check in and check out facility. This is a recommendable hotel to other travellers. Pick-up and drop facility was not available there. There should be improvement in pick-up or drop facility and activities like swimming pool, It was a honeymoon trip.
The stay in the Hotel J, Port Blair was good. It is located near the clock tower. The trip was three days in the month of February. Appearance of the hotel is average and its business hotel. No delay in check-in and check-out process. Front office of the hotel was good. Complimentary breakfast was given taste was okay, veg food was only few varieties were there. The room allotted to me was plumbing issue, I raised a complaint but they couldn't fix it and it was neat, clean and basic amenities were there. Wi- Fi was not working. Overall, stay was comfortable.
I stayed in J hotel for 3 nights. I chose it as was in Aberdeen bazaar in main Port Blair area. Also the cost and concourse creates the illusion that it was a 3-4 star hotel. But for the cost I got shoddy room service, no regular hot water. The room was okay but I have to say for a cheaper cost there are better hotels in Port Blair. The breakfast was good though.
