This has been one of the most disappointing hotel stay ever in my life. The place is practically dead with rooms which might have been renovated 20 years back. The upholstery is so dirty that you can't even sit down on the chairs in the room. The price charged is absolutely disproportionate to what they have to offer....i.e. a 5... More

Even though the rooms are a little small, but it is very neat and tidy. Breakfast is good. It is in the center of city. Because of the construction of metro all the roads nearby are little congested. Lot of small and big shops are there nearby
