Location : Located in the heart of Civil Lines, hotel Kanha Shyam is among the oldest and most prestigious hotels in the city of Allahabad. The old city, the railway station and the shopping areas of the city are easily accessible from the hotel. Taxi, auto-rickshaws and cycle rickshaws are available from outside the hotel. The prime location makes it... More

Went to Kanha Shyam Hotel last minute and were pleasantly surprised at how polite and helpful the staff of the hotel was. They have assisted us with all our requests and because we had to change many things as we left earlier, we got everything done. Very good hotel, good breakfast and relaxing atmosphere. An oasis to the chaos of... More

Good hotel with nice ambiance.The hotel is located near Allahabad train station. Staff are well behaved and rooms are also clean. I specially like their buffet breakfast which offers live dosa, but the buffet dinner has limited choices. Overall, I will recommend this hotel for a short stay.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days. The staff was very courteous and check in and check out was very smooth. The rooms are decent but needs maintainance and hygiene. Breakfast spread is ok. To summarize Decent hotel with basic amenities located in the city centre. (No bang for the buck).

as a single woman travelling to the city of allahabad on numerous occasions for business trips, i found hotel kanha shyam a true god-send. firstly, even with loads of luggage you can literally walk to it, its right across the allahabad railway station. they do send a car to pick you up though, but once, i had to walk down,...

Interiors are nice and warm. Staff is courteous but service is slow. Had been there few times but food was not as great as expected especially during food festivals which are frequently organized at this place However people who are fond of live ghazals with food can head to "Baradhari" at top floor. Its quite an experience given i am... More

This is a very decent hotel ideal for business travelers as well as families. There were many wedding families put up in the hotel during my stay. The rooms are quite spacious. The hotel has a good bar at the lobby level. The breakfast had many varieties.

It's very disheartening to see that Allahabad being one of the oldest city hosting millions of pilgrims every year , has no decent hotel. As far as I know not a single branded hotel group has entered the city as yet. Sad for a city selected to be developed as one of the smart cities in India. This hotel started... More
