Check in process is late. No proper communication in reception. Rooms are neat and clean.Most of the staff working there seems to be doing there internship program as a part of their hospitality management course. No maturity in handling things. Breakfast was just an average.

Salem Castle used to be a very good hotel. But now just an average hotel. Room ambience is poor. Bathroom had some cheap soaps. Not worth to pay Rs.1800 for a single traveller. Further, lobby was under rennovation, and entrance all messed up. If I had not booked online, I would have returned from the entrance itself. Restaurant is on... More

Best budget hotel to stay with all the basic amenities. The staff is very co-operative. Rooms are well maintained, neat and clean with perfect hygiene conditions. The complimentary breakfast is also good.

Once this used to be a good hotel, but now the standard has gone down and it definitely needs improvement in terms of service and maintenance. The location is very good, but it lacks in other important things to attract customers.

We had stopped over the night at Hotel Salem castle during our road trip to Allepey from Bangalore. Given the last minute booking, this seemed to be the only feasible option. At 3K per night, though breakfast was included (that we did not get a chance to catch given our plan to hit the road at 6:30 am), it was... More

The parking lot is slightly far from the entrance to the hotel, but apart from that, its a value for money place. Efficient staff but the airconditioning takes a while to kick in. and with Salem weather, it can be a drag! Even so, it's a pretty neat place to stay.

I recently went to stay at this hotel in Salem. It was a pretty decent place for a small city like Salem. The rooms are really well maintained. They even had locker facilities in all rooms. We loved the lawn in the 4th floor. The complimentary breakfast buffet is in par with star hotels in Chennai. The only problem is... More

I did not stay at this hotel but did get shown several rooms on the property. It seemed like a tired old building that had not been kept up. The rooms were not attractive and definitely not updated. There were service panels off in each hallway we went down, and in one room. Looked like maintenance was a big problem.... More
