I was to write a very important examination in Vasco city. I checked into this hotel a night before. I just wanted a refreshing and peaceful sleep before my all important examination. Rooms were cramped, musty and dingy. Bathroom taps were not properly working. I should have taken a cue and should have checked out instantly but I decided to stay back instead and ended up paying a huge price. As soon as I retired to sleep, I got stinging sensation on my neck. I neglected initially but as time passed the rest of my body started getting this sensation. Then I had severe itching allover. My friend who was sleeping on the adjacent bed also got up. It was 1 am at this time. We inspected the bedding and were in utter disbelief to find the bed literally teeming with bedbugs. Mind you, this was first encounter with bedbugs in my life! Tried to complain but no one bothered to change our room! Because of the exam, all rooms were full. And in the that hour of the day, we did not want to fight with the hotel's (mis)managament and waste our energy and disturb our already disturbed mood further. We got a mug-full of water and started to collect bedbugs in the mug. In an hour's time we collected over 50 -60 bedbugs. More than this number were there hidden in our pillows. We got rid of pillows and slept overnight without pillows and finally managed to catch some shut eye past 3 am! Due to exam, we needed to get up at 6 am. So in-toto 3 hours of sleep a night before all important exam! There was no running hot water (obviously) in the bathroom. We called reception umpteen times and finally managed to get a bucket full of hot water delivered to our room by hotel boy! Needless to say this all clearly reflected on my performance. I could not score well and had to write the exam again next year (for which I preferred Bangalore center). This all event is true to the last word. This occurred way back in year 2008, those days I did not know much about tripadvisor. I've read many negative hotel reviews on this website, but never ever found any review which remotely comes close to the agony we suffered. Now with the help of this site, I'm forewarning my readers. Of course many things might have changed in the ensuing 7 years but still I want readers to reconsider this hotel before biting the bullet. After all forewarned is forearmed!
