Terrible to Stay

Location of the Hotel was really terrible. You have to go through small, narrow and dirty streets inside the local area and very hard to reach if you have luggage with you. Linen, towels were dirty and they don't provide you any toiletries except a small soap. There is no Room Service and they don't allow you to eat inside your room. Washroom was too small but no option. Overall it was a bad experience. Only thing that was good if you can say is the view from terrace of Ganga River that flows at the bottom of hotel down about 150 stairs. They says free Wifi but there is no connectivity for Wifi

Stayed 2 nights in Apr. 2019
