Bihar's capital Patna has a strange dishonour...It doesn't have a 5 star hotel. Even Ranchi (Jharkand) has a Radisson! After Maurya, Chankaya is one option that can be considered. Some rooms are being refurbished. Wifi is patchy. Food is nice. Service is friendly. But it can be a better hotel..

We stayed here during a business trip for three nights. The rooms are a good size and are decently clean. There is hot water pot and a minifridge, which was convenient. The ceiling fans were nice. It was very noisy the first night we were there, as there was a party going on somewhere in the vicinity. The other nights... More

I have never stayed at Hotel Chanakya.Understandably, as it's in my hometown. We have visited the hotel several times though, for it's two restaurants that serve the best food, in our opinion, in the city. It was the same this time as well. However, we got to experience the banquet facilities, especially for a small group, as my brother celebrated... More

Getting a good hotel for a stay is n't easy in Patna.The hotels are overvalued and they don't offer some of the facilities that you may expect in a similarly priced hotel in other tier-II or tier-III cities in India. I liked the food in this hotel,the breakfast had a decent spread.Rooms are probably overvalued in terms of the price... More

The best things first -- the hotel has a good location, easy to reach and bang in the middle of the city. It has a good restaurant -- Takshila which is known for its kebabs and naans. However, the service is slow and one should have a lot of patience. We ordered an extra naan and it took ages to... More

I liked this hotel for two reasons.First,the location,its just a 5 min drive from the airport and 2 mins from the railway station.Its in a secluded area of the congested town and in the midst of VIP/Green areas so good for my morning & evening walks.Rest everything in the hotel is just functional and I would call this an average...

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
