I lived here for 4 months and am still alive! Oct 02, 2009
Hotel Nirula is a place that grows on you with time. Yea its noted for being a shithole filled with roaches and danque, but it grows on you after awhile. I spent two seperate two month stays at this hotel, and it does have some interesting aspects about it; and it is routinely sold out.

Some interesting things about the location.

It is about twenty minutes by foot into the interesting (well "interesting") area of panipat.

There is a gross river filled with garbage that goes by it.

There is a shopping mall being constructed next to it.... if this is completed this could be interesting!

Its 150 miles from terrorist hotbed Lahore, which I found interesting because of all the news coming out there.... if there are any serious problems in Pakistan panipat will be flooded with refugees so remember that.

There is a banquet hall inside the hotel, and an outdoor one next to it. Try crashing the outdoor events, you'll meet lots of interesting people but beware of the food.

Now about the rooms:

The good:

Food service is usually good, but sometimes terrible; they have American, chinese, and indian food. The chef is very honest when the food sucks and will gear you to something tasty if you're friendly... They love it when booze is consumed for some reason.

The service is good, the owners are shrewd people but let them know something is wrong and they'll fix it quickly.

They get two or three english channels... to bad one is dedicated to cricket, and the other is hbo asia.

Great internet service... thank god!

Hot water!

Free drinking water.

The bad:

Huge green blob in the middle of my tub.

HBO asia really sucks.

Nearby masques, highways and roosters will get you an early wake up call.

Not really anything nearby, and roads are crowded.

Sometimes terrible food

The ugly:

Power outages


People knocking on your doors trying to get tips.

HBO Asia

Nothing to do in the area

BED BUGS (complain for a new room)

Well Atleast I don't have herpes Oct 01, 2009
Hotel Nirula is the preferred hotel in Panipat, I'm not sure why, but probably because it is close to the main commercial interests in Panipat (aka Oil). I really did not enjoy my stay here, but it could be a lot worse too.

The Good:

Good and not that expensive internet.

Free bottle of water appears to not be refilled in sink

They give you a refrigerator with free beverages, including coke, tonic water (who the hell drinks that?), and lime stuff.

Breakfast is free and usually not to harsh on the stomach.

The Bad:

Waiters will knock on your door trying to get tips.

People behind the front desk are kind of obnoxious.

Outside of town, so the many "attractions" of panipat are far away.

The Ugly:

Dead animals on the road in front of the hotel

Staff calling up the room to ask questions at weird hours.

Lots of interesting family events that we're not invited to (it has a banquet hall)

Mosquitos in the room (is that a bite, or do I have herpes?)


Well atleast its not a brothel!
