The rooms are OK. The bathrooms require immediate renovation. Bath tub was cracked. The ac in the rooms were not effective. The food both dinner and breakfast was sub standard. None of the items served during dinner and breakfast was up to the mark. There was a lot of rush on Sunday in the restaurant which suggests that the food... More

Drove in to Allahabad from Varanasi for holy dip in Sangam.Checked in this hotel at 12.30pm. We find hotel reasonably good and comfotable for the short stay. Buffet breakfast quitegood. The ambiance is really nice. The staff are humble but not experienced at frontdesk. Overall good short stay at this hotel.

i have undergone my wedding ceremony at this place. The arrangements were excellent. Even the staff was so polite. All staff was available at the point you require them. Good quality was also excellent. Thanks to chef and other staff. Excellent and keep it up.

This is supposedly one of the better properties in Allahabad. The best part of the Hotel is its location almost in the heart of the city in Civil Lines. The Hotel definitely doesn't qualify for the 4 star billing it claims for itself. It has no Gym or Swimming Pool. That said the rooms are well appointed and have a... More

There are many positives and a few negatives to this place. First of all, we arrived in the afternoon and they had all the lights shut off in the lobby and almost made the place look like it was abandoned. The hotel front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Here's a tip, ASK FOR A RENOVATED ROOM. We were originally... More

Stayed here a couple of times on business visits. Rooms are good and spacious. Options are limited on buffet though breakfast options are good. There is scope to improve service though all round ambience in the hotel is good

When this Hotel was launched in Allahabad, it came as a boon. An imposing structure in those days, was indeed awesome. Over a period of time, it has come to symbolise good hospitality. It has lovely eateries and an a bar that overlooks the High Court. Great rooms. Great Hospitality. Keep it up.
