I was excited about going to Patna as there are many memories attached with this city.But my excitement didn't last long after seeing the unwelcoming face of the person on the counter. He was curt and need at least 10 year's course on customer service. They have cramped lift and its very suffocating. The rooms are not maintained properly and... More

I stayed just one night in the Hotel Chanakya and confess that since all my colleagues hate coming to Patna I was expecting worse. I arrived late and left early. The check-in was standard, no extra miles, but no hassles either. My room was a walk across the courtyard and the luggage guy wasn't going to leave without a tip,... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights so that I could attend a friends wedding. I am very glad I did not extend my stay. Right away from the outside, the maintain was very careless and paint was falling off the sides. The entrance doorway is made from the cheapest material imaginable. The doors don't even close properly. Going... More

Sadly its my state capital...checked in from The Lalit Kolkata to Hotel Chanakya and it was a shock..It felt like a lodge not a hotel...Very old and degrading...some saving grace was the not so bad spraed of breakfast and decent Mutton Khada masala...room service is OK. My advise id to avoid it..but then what choices one has in Patna!!

In the absence of a Five Star Hotel or an international chain in Patna, the capital of Bihar, the Chanakya hotel is your best bet. Clean rooms, clean toilets . Do not hesitate to call Housekeeping if you find any inadequacy which will be promptly attended to. Breakfast is good. A central location makes it a good choice.
