“Definitely my worst hotel experience in india”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

I found myself stuck in horrid calicut, it was dark and monson rains just started.
came to the maharani hotel after calling and verifying the is an available room.

the reception rep told me that i should supply a passport copy because their zerox machine is broken, i was amazing and asked him again, he said i should go get a copy of my passport,"either you supply it or get out", rude and arrogant.

With no other choice i left my original passport with him, he wasn't even ready to give me a written note saying my passport it with him.

beside that breakfast was pathetic, served is a pitch black room, hardly ate anything.
for dinner i got the worst cheese s\w you can imagine.

i asked to speak with the manager three different time, with different excuses.

my worst hotel experience, after 60 days.

Room Tip: don;'t stay there

We stayed here on a one night stopover. We found it was good value for the money - just under 800Rs for a non-AC room and breakfast. The room and beds were were neat and clean, although the floors were a bit dusty in patches. The room had a TV. It was a good option for Calicut because its a little bit away from the noise of the town proper. The restaurant was reasonably good value. Its not a luxurious hotel, but if you're on a budget, it's fine.

What a find this place was. Away from the noise and bustle of the city, the Maharani offers 3 star accommodation in clean and comfortable rooms, at a very reasonable rate. The reception desk is among the most professionally run that I have encountered in India. Efficient, courteous and knowledgeable staff make for efficient check ins and have a wealth of local knowledge.

The rooms are spacious and certainly represent top value within their category. The restaurant has a wide menu, good service and a very acceptable level of cuisine.

I got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. We really did feel like guests here and not just customers. I would recommend this hotel to mid range travellers, without hesitation.

We stayed two nights. This is a good place, located in a quiet part of the city, but within an easy walk to some of the main streets. Sarjun at reception took our reservation on the phone and did everything to help out on arrival (we arrived around 11pm). Professional front desk. The hotel has an airy feel, retro design, spacious rooms and well maintained. The complimentary breakfast was good and their meals also good. Friendly staff all round.
