This is a centrally located and decent Hotel at the price offered. Rooms are average and reasonably well kept. Toilets are a bit old fashioned but functional and clean.Food is a Hallmark of this hotel. South Indian food is excellent and Other verities are also great, Overall a good experience.

Bit disappointed by the quality of service, check-in-was not smooth. Check-out was even worse. The quality of the room we got was average and the bathroom is quite small for this class of hotel. At the time of checking out the person who came to take my luggage checked the mini-bar in a way that was insulting. I did express... More

Stayed here as part of a family trip. It was a short, pleasant and comfortable 2 nights stay. Have also eaten in the restaurant on several occasions many years ago. The staff was extremely courteous and the rooms were adequately maintained. Food is also of good quality. Do try the Cascade Restaurant buffet. Would definitely stay here again.

I expected much better ambiance...The room can be maintained better... The furniture is old and off-color. I stayed next to the restaurant in the 7th floor, the corridors often filled with cigarette smoke, used to enter the room too. Could have been avoided. And the day I was leaving the ducts were being cleaned, there was dirt all over the... More

My last review was about Cascade Restaurant and last Sunday I landed up there again for the lunch buffet...but lo and behold, they serve only veg at lunch, no wonder its 250/- per head whereas the NV Buffet at that place is priced at 500/-.

One of the oldest hotels in Vizag. I fondly remember enjoying meals here as a kid also. Truly gives meaning to the phrase 'old is gold'. Had buffet at Cascade. Economical and tasty. The breakfast and lunch buffets priced 250/- and dinner 450/- (excl taxes). The dinner spread was quite good with 3 NV dishes. The veg spread was awesome... More
