|Hotel Pathik Niwas Kushinagar|
I had booked a A.C.-Deluxe Room costing INR 2300 per day without breakfast through Expedia.com. The room they gave me was not even worth INR 300. Almost all the sanitary fittings in the toilet were broken. The room air-conditioner made more noise than the power generator, the mosquito repellent did not do anything to repel the monster mosquitoes in the room, and the blanket on the bed looked highly dangerous. The air-conditioner did cool the room when power supply was on but that was for only about 30 minutes that night. Only the ceiling fan, maximum speed only, worked with the generator power.

After seeing the condition of the toilet in that "Deluxe" room, I complained to the front office. No pipe was attached to the wash basin outlet, the water just spread on the bathroom floor. The flush tank pipe leaked, the soap dish and the shower head were the filthiest bath fittings I had even seen in a hotel (see more pictures below). How could a hotel room that cost INR 2300 per night be in such a horrible condition. It was a government hotel so could not have any shortage of staff or funds. Then was it corruption or just plain incompetence of those responsible for the maintenance.

Whatever it was, they refused to change the room saying that all the rooms were similar. I could not sleep a minute that night. Early next morning, I decided to leave and look for accommodation in one of the monasteries around. When I was passing by the front office, someone stopped me and offered to change the room. They showed me a lower category room that was not as pathetic as their "Deluxe". Having paid them in advance, I decided to stay one more day.
