Nalapad Residency Bangalore
This hotel has long since had its heyday, the place seems to be in a dire state, I felt like starting the decorating myself. The room was a smokers room- I didn't think to ask- when I booked and paid with no sleep on the 1 night I stayed. It was not as big as the other standard hotels we had used. The entrance looked fine, car park, quiet and off the main street, so the location was good. It was heavy with the hustle and bustle on the mian road outside, the hotel just a little forgotten. Worst of all there was no hot water, barely warm, and when we had to leave and despite notifying them the night before, that at 3 am we needed to get up, there was none. They ran many buckets to get it, at this hour creating a hell of a noise, coming into the bathroom, and chucking the water on the floor to drain away, until it began to run warm. Even my towels and bedsheets smelt of smoke. and from where I might have seen online that they had all kinds of facilitlies, I was disappointed. I had the sense that once upon a time they were busy and well used, and maybe had guests too! I saw only two young Indian couples and many rooms on the floors. Evening food, alone showed a small selection -off menu only, opened at 6.30 we were told at first, then at 7.30 - no English fluency anywhere alright, but then asked for pure juice and it had sugar, when we had asked all 7 waiters eventually someone cottoned on. There were no other diners, too many waiters all for nothing. In fact on arriving at the station, we were to get a hotel pick up. We saw no one holding a placard with our name on it, and we searched, and waited until chooosing a taxi, whom we paid instead. The man claimed to have been there at the station for us over the telephone when reception called him. My guess is that it is a common problem, and gives hotel drivers hours off for chai, then they try to blame the guest.
