Poor 2.0
TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTING!! WILL NEVER STAY AGAIN
HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING!!! Not a place to stay. I had booked 4 rooms (all paid and had booking reference as well) and upon arrival they just had one room booking. Manager couldn't contact the owner and couldn't decide anything. We waited for 40 min. Then they took us to some guest house which was at half an hour drive away from the city. Neither the manager nor the owner contacted me thereafter. The customer service team of Hotels.com sorted my problem and compensated well.
