The only reason I stayed here is that I needed a place near the see chithra hospital where I had some work. They claim to be located in the "health zone" of the city, or in other words on the medical college road. It's the only decent hotel apart from a few lodges in the area. As you enter it... More

I always stay here as it is close to the hospital and convenient for my research work but the hotel has really gone down hill. The sheets are badly in need of replacement (scratchy and uncomfortable). Room cleaning no longer regularly done each day, had to ask for toilet paper, wifi used to be included is no longer include and... More

The hotel and room is good but the service of the hotel was at its worst. When I entered in the room there was no water bottle, no towels, nothing was in the mini bar. It took me three hours to get my bed sheet replaced that too after fighting at reception after 1 hours. Moreover somebody in the hotel... More

I had gone on official work to one of the leading hospitals and found the hotel conveniently located. Staff is very polite and helpful. Room was neat and clean. However the towels could have been a bit more white. Food was excellent during lunch and dinner. Breakfast was adequate. The bar at terrace was ok. Will stay again during my... More

Average business class hotel. Well located opposite medical college. Relatively safe. Moderate comfort. quick response from reception area. Food-Average. cons: Bathrooms:Average,not so clean. There were multiple other neighboring rooms with people smoking heavily. The room we did stay also turned smoky. They have no 'NO SMOKING'policy. People sit in lobby and smoke.

My work brought me to this hotel being just opposite to the medical college where I had to be for three days. A humble hotel with parking despite a busy road in front. The reception was pretty good and fast. Rooms were clean though one started leaking at the A/c duct but another room was allotted right away without hassles.... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night as there was no room in a nearby alternative which I regularly use. Check in was pleasant and smooth and the rate was negotiable when quoted their own online tariff. Room is spacious but in need of attention to detail. The blinding curtain and comfy bed are certainly plus points but the... More
