Stayed for 2 days in 2 rooms, toilets were not clean with bad smell coming from water outlets, uncomfortable spring mattress, overall poor maintenance, food was not good except few local fish dishes. Only plus was the pleasing attitude of staff.

2/10 Poor

Worst Experience - Not Even Worth One Star
First thing we noticed in the room was mold all over the ceilings. The room smelled of mold. Towels smelled of fungus. Shower doors were missing. Toilet seat was broken and dislocated. Sinks do not drain. They tried to give us bed sheets covered in stains, we repeatedly asked for clean sheets, eventually had to settle for moderately dirty. This hotel completely ruined our one night in Alleppey. The room safe is not even fixed to the wall, what is the point of having a safe when someone can walk off with it! The entire property is old and lacks maintenance, the staff seem to think this is OK for advertising an international destination. We only felt dirty and sick staying here, and wanted to leave as soon as possible. We had the manager come down and he tried to justify the conditions by saying it was the busy season and they were booked back to back. What kind of excuse is this! The only thing the manager offered was a complimentary dinner, they did not attempt to fix the problems or change the rooms.
