Not worth service for money collected - Could be better”

Everything was good except for something crucial. A room is approximately charged for Rs. 2500/- and they brag this as elite hotel compared to their base regular RKN hotel. This hotel has bar in first floor and rooms in 2nd and 3rd floor. They provide with kinley water bottles to rooms along with coffee/tea/milk sachet. Now the issue is - those kinley bottles are not originally packaged & used ones. They just fill R.O water in it to supply to us. How pathetic? This is a serious hospitality issue and there are high chances of contamination and spread of water borne diseases by this means. These bottles at the max used in the BARS in the hotel and reused for the guests in the room. RKN management - you charge like 3/4 star category, have some ethics and justice to the amount collected. This is not fair and the staff says it is a direction from the management. MANAGEMENT, PLEASE CHECK ON THIS SERIOUS ISSUE DURING THESE PANDEMIC TIMES & GUEST, BEFORE DRINKING WATER CHECK IF IT VACCUM SEALED AND ORIGINALLY SUPPLIED FROM KINLEY - Else you have high chance of getting infected with cold - I’m right away with it! Also, there was a cockroach in the bedroom though the rooms were clean to sights! Need to be disinfected at least a month.

Complimentary breakfast is better to skip which won't be ready even at 8:30 am. Didnt had doormats in front of washrooms. Fridge doesn't work. For the price that we paid, this was total waste.
