My organization's official hotel in Allahabad, this is arguably the best hotel in the historical city. The location is excellent - within walking distance of the railway station and a mere 5-10 minutes drive from local bus stands. The hotel however, is a bit far from the much sought sangam. But the distance actually keeps you from the rush in... More

The hotel looks statuesque in an otherwise extremely filthy city of Allahabad. Once you step inside you will see the fraying at the edges , the paints peeling off, the worn out bath tubs... When we checked -in there was this TV film crew shooting a song right in the lobby ! When we stepped into the dining hall later,... More

In this holy town Allahabad famous for Kumbha Mela and the Sangam/confluence of Ganges, Yamuna and mythical Saraswati rivers, this hotel is one good choice. Good rooms, nice food, guidance and cabs to holy places around and decent staff makes it worth it's cost for people looking for quality service. At Sangam, Avoid getting involved with Pandas and fleecing boatmen.... More

The rooms at the top floor are very spacious and the air-conditioning is very good. However, looking to the amenities provided and the place where it is located, the hotel appears to be a little overpriced.

A much hyped hotel in a place like Allahabad. The rooms really need renovation as the toilet fittings are very old and so are the othere fittings. Food is very ordinary and therefore, adviseable to go out for a dinner or lunch.

This hotel is located in civil lines area of Allahabad. We had a day stay here and found the hotel to be very average. It is a very old hotel and in desperate need of renovation. The lobby looks very ordinary and the sitting area was disorganised. We requested for non smoking rooms but there were none vacant. So had... More
