2/10 Poor

Worst hotel experience in my lifetime! Avoid at any cost you will regret it immensely if you visit. Should have expected this when local taxi driver asked me if I was really staying at the OYO Royal and followed up with an exasperated why?! Checked in, wifi didn't work on top floor. Told something must be wrong with my phone, tablet, laptop. No heating in room, it was freezing had to sleep in my clothes, told it was working downstairs. Finally no hot water or water pressure. Told it will work in the next 10 minutes, no surprises it didn't. Went down to reception, at least the front reception lady was nice only thing worth one star. Called the hotel chain multiple times for a solution. Kept getting diverted to other operators that didn't speak English or placed on hold and then hung up on. As I arrived late I couldn't find any other hotels to move to as if there was the option I'd be out of here in a heartbeat. Everything screams scam. Save your money and your sanity.

6/10 Good

Cheap as chips freindly place to stay.
From the outside, the place looks nice, but when you go inside it's like something from the 1970s. put that aside the staff are fantastic. we had a lovely evening and a good chat with friendly people. (if this place had some investment, it would be even better).
