Although the hotel over charged me but I wont mind staying here again. Its the room which was great. And yes this luxury hotel give more favour to foreign nationals than us Indians. The food which I ordered were in time. Everything was just what I needed but Beware if they may use your emergency stay in their favour.

The hotel is a luxury hotel and the rooms range here from Rs. 2000 per day to Rs.4000+. The service is very good, food is good, though not all items are excellent. It is located in Civil Lines, which is the most posh area in Allahabad. Their breakfast menu is especially extensive.

Located in the heart of the city with railway station and Bus station nearby.The staff is courteous,food is good and atmosphere is pleasant. Rooms are a bit smaller but considering the other options would settle with this.

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.

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,...
