4/10 Fair

The hygiene was an issue in the room and common areas. The room was dark and dingy. Utensils were not clean. The hotel is not well maintained.

2/10 Poor

We stayed in hotel vaitkunth for 2 days, and we had a very bad experience. There was no proper lights & air circulation in rooms, bathrooms were so small, and were not cleaned also. They didnt provided any toiletries also. Staff was not cooperative at all and. Whatever is shown in pictures is fake. Do not book this hotel by ratings, the experience will be ruined. Thanks.

6/10 Good

Mixed feeling. Food was exceptionally good. But the whole operation was characterized by good equipment which was poorly maintained. The staff is courteous and fast good, just wished they would clear used plates quickly and don't let waste and equipment lying scattered in the corners of gallery. Would come back here only for the food.

10/10 Exceptional

It is a amazingly brilliant hotel. Truly a 4 star hotel with 4star hospitality. You can ask for anything that you need during your stay and they will provide it as fast as they can. The service is quite fast and the staff is extremely polite. In all my travels,this is by far the best hotel I have stayed in. Standing for the definable of 4 star hotels.
