A VERY cramped double en-suite room with a/c cost 1375 Rs for a night. Though spotlessly cleaned and comfy, the room was WAY too small for two people and backpacks. The room was about 2.5x3m (including the bathroom), with a double bed and bedside table and everything, so there was not much space left for walking. The corridor was slightly noisy, as waiters hung around outside talking.
There was cable TV, phone, hot shower, towels, clean sheets, and luggage storage. But we still think that this is MUCH overpriced for what we got. Maybe living in Bangkok, where this price could get you a VERY comfortable room, we were expecting too much. However, the place has easy access to everything.
Tips are expected for bus boys.
