My room was adequate and quite spacious and the aircon kept the room wonderfully cool – the bathroom does need upgrading though – having a shower meant the whole bathroom got soaking wet. Positives – very helpful management, great location and the... More

stopped off for a drink, during a walk about in the fort. Initially quick to take an order but interminably slow to make a milkshake that turned out to be poor. Food orders coming out for other clientele seemed to have been waiting for a long time too. Upside, they have free wifi if you need to catch up with... More

I had a 2 night stay here at this hotel. It was dirty, and the bathroom smelt terrible. The shower was the worst I have ever experienced in my travels around Asia. The staff were rude, unprofessional and have no customer service or care for their guests at all. One of the staff members accused me of stealing his mobile... More
