The street outside the railway station was deserted in the middle of night, after all it was 12:30 but lone taxis were still standing at one corner. I made my way towards the taxi stand and hired one. He seemed to know the Hotel Nesh Inn Patna well for he took no more than 15 minutes to reach the hotel. The hotel exteriors at the 5th floor of the apartment looked unimpressive but I was proved wrong when I entered the premise and was satisfied with my choice.
The man at the reception greeted me with a smile and a few formalities later, the staff offered to take my luggage into my room and I was guided to the room 502. The room looked small but I did not mind at all. I just needed to freshen up and crash into a deep sleep to get rid of my fatigue. The next morning I woke up, got quickly ready and looked for the in-room menu card for some wholesome breakfast. Once I ordered some regular south Indian breakfast, I paid attention to my surroundings. The hotel and its rooms were clean and pleasing. The food smelled and tasted1/13/2014 good. The staff that I came in contact with was polite and courteous. The rooms were worth the stay and under 2000 rupees, it was very reasonable and affordable.
I decided to explore the hotel a little more. The hotel boasts of a conference room that is well-equipped with internet and secretarial services. I made a mental note, may be one day I will visit Patna on a business visit and make use of these services. The location of the hotel is also strategic. It looks like a posh area and I see the Income Tax Office and Bihar State Electricity Board Office nearby. I approach the Hotel Nesh Inn Patna reception desk and try to find out about the various attractions that Patna has to offer. The helpful man promptly gives me a list of places that are a must-see in Patna. One of which is the Buddha Memorial Park, Patna where I am headed next.
