I stayed at Sarai with a friend after finishing the yoga and meditation retreat at Hariharalaya. The hotel is not far from the main city and it's in impeccable condition at the front,upon arrival we've been looked after well and even checked us in earlier than usual as the room was ready earlier. We got ushered to our room, small and perfect for 2 nights stays. The design of the hotel is very welcoming, I specifically like that early afternoon knock for our local treats - it was a nice touch.
I get that possibly they're trying to prove that their service is deserving level 5 and in my perspective, their service is impeccable. I even had a weird request as green mangoes abound and I love mangoes but no knife to peel it but, I gave it to them and they peeled it for us with special sauce to go with it.
The stay included breakfast and it's all you can eat. They cater for both local and western food, was delish. Airport tuk tuk is only USD 5 but I gave the driver another USD1 or it's up to you how much you tip them but not usually expected by the locals.
I recommend this place for short stay as it is a very lovely resort. Not sure if they have bigger room if you're staying here longer but worth asking the hotel.
Ask for early check-in, room away from the end of the hotel and front to avoid the traffic noise. We stayed at 206 and it's very quiet. The only noise I heard was the guests that seem to be drunk on the hallway but managed them accordingly. Perhaps the hotel should impose strict rules for the guest to keep the noise down after 11pm. We got there during moon and water festival so the music and celebrations are all around us. It's great was to immerse yourself into the country's culture.
