The bed was comfortable enough, location was good& it had a lift. Nothing grand about it. No mosquito net on room window which looked a little too closely at the wall opposite, so very little light. Bathroom dank& in need of a good scrub! Very noisy in the morning from a generator somewhere in the near vacinity.

Biggest problem was the beg bugs.... More

This hotel was by far the worst we stayed at in India. Dirty sheets, dirty room, bathroom had NEVER been cleaned, shower was a hose coming out of the wall. Reception staff were appalling. so unhelpful and rude. We asked for a towel and they bought us some that were so dirty we refused. The only good thing was that... More

To begin with the photos above (unless tripadvisor has removed them) are not of Grand Central Hotel. I picked this hotel out of the L.P which lists a number of places in the area. With retrospect I probably should have checked some others but I was tired and couldn’t be bothered traipsing around. My 420R room was not particularly clean.... More
