Worst to stay at Leela Palace
Nice Hotel with perfect room size. Separate section for wardrobe & shower was attraction. Bed was comfortable. Sea View from my room no 138 was awesome. Initially faced little problems with some services but later they improved it drastically and i was happy when i checked out. Good to go for this property. Overall 4.5 out of 5 for this.
