Rooms, including the room doors are very short. Poorly maintained rooms with no hot water supply. Have TV with CRT monitor and that too very small 14 inch. No telephone to contact reception or catering.

It's high time to move away from window a/c. Staffs were very gentle and helpful. We did not try the restaurant here and hence no comment on that part. Overall... More
