This hotel was inaugurated in 1981 and I doubt anything has changed over the last 4 decades. The furnishing, the ambience, the interiors and the overall vibe of the place is not just incredibly outdated by any standards, but also shows signs of years of use and poor maintenance. There are hardly any amenities to talk about and none of the bells and whistles that are a feature of modern hotels. And I am not even talking about the exotic services like a Spa, or Health Center or Swimming Pool etc. I am talking about basic amenities like an Electric Kettle or an Iron or a decent WiFi.
I stayed at the so called ‘VIP Suite’ and while the room size was impressive the rest of it was completely unremarkable. The Sofas were dirty, the bed sheet was fading and the blankets were old and clearly not washed or dry cleaned in a long time. The washrooms were basic and even though clean had limited space to keep any toiletries. The food was fine but once again many of the menu items were missing or unavailable for order. Also, the restaurant is only open till 10 pm so good luck if you feel hunger pangs late at night.
So, to wrap things up Hotel Jawalaji is in dire need of renovation, upliftment, remodelling or call it what you will. It seems stuck in a time warp and the lack of competition or alternatives should not be an excuse for such a shoddy place. The only positives are the courteous and polite staff and the proximity to the Jawalaji temple, the most important reason why anybody comes to Jawalaji. That apart I would never recommend this hotel. Just to add a new Hotel is coming up almost next door to this and that might be your best option if you’re looking for a decent and comfortable stay.
