Nothing special about this hotel and I would not suggest it for a holiday. But the rooms are OK, staff were efficient, pool was nice. Could do with an upgrade in places, but if you are working nearby this would be a good choice.

The area is essentially a Little India and is a very bustling neighbourhood both day and night. The hotel itself used to be part of the Accor Group's Novotel chain, but has since left;... More
