Stayed here for 2 nights (Jan 2nd to 4th) with family. Good hotel, but way overpriced (I paid 3500 Rupees / per night for an executive double bed room). Centrally located, decent sized clean rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms. Front desk and bell hop staff were courteous. The included breakfast was just about average and needs to improve on taste.... More

Service is great and the room space is perfect. As it is relatively a new property the amenities are clean they have great restaurant too. A very good business hotel in Mangalore.... More

We had booked 3 rooms for 1 night last week. My review is based on the collective thoughts from all family members. The location of the hotel is very good and is in a busy city center.
