located near medical college its high time for them to renovate this property staff and service is kind of okay you see a lack of responsibility in most of the area, rooms are okay, restaurant and food is below average parking is not so great just an average hotel that need more attention to make it a visitors favorite hotel

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

I had visited the restaurant on 2nd floor more than a couple times yet the service has not improved. The waiters are behaving as if we have come to have food for free. Neither they bother to take our orders unless we call them nor they provide water or sauce unless we remind them 2-3 times. I was also there... More
