Delightful stay. Staff very friendly. Lobby was great and rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet featured Indian dishes but there were omlettes cooked to order too.

6/10 Good

stay was good
Check in experience is very disappointing as only one staff at the reception and customers are kept waiting for the check in / payment and check out
Verified Expedia guest review

2/10 Poor

Very very bad room and stinking rooms
Horrible experience - I booked the club room - the room was stinking. Beds and linen was in horrible condition full of stains. The front desk staffs are lousy and non-responsive, they are not professionally managed. The cost is too high for the quality and standard maintained by the hotel. We are asked to wait for an hour in the corridor while the housekeeping crew was cleaning the room - entirely washing the room with water !!! the dampness in the room made me sick and I have to pay a hefty bill for the doctor.

Ambiga Empire Reception left a bad taste
The stay would have been much better if the hotel reception personell weren't in a hurry to get rid of us. we extended our stay and they showed no patience. Insted they kept calling us to see if we can come down and pay immedietely. Breakfast closed early. no wakeup call was given when asked. When Do not Disturb was on they still call you. Laundry and Car are too expensive here.
