We went to this place as there is an outlet available for Chinese foods. What we ordered was Noodles with Fried Chicken. It was really great. One of the best i have ever tried. Service was good. Quick and friendly staff.

Driver stopped here late in the evening. Room wasn't great. A bit hot and stuffy. Extortionate bill for a tea in the morning,. Should ask for the price before requesting anything. The gardening staff in the morning are quite friendly though.

Avoid that place...why? Well you'll get what you paid for. Absolutely no welcome at all, they don't speak good english so good luck to get what they say. No front desk or whatsoever, looked more like an abandoned house to me. Some big construction or renovation is taking place in the what-so-called hotel garden, which is ugly and noisy. Rooms...

We went there and place was not nice. not worth for the price. Food was really bad. so much of oil and salt in food. too noisy at night. They said they have cable TV, but we did not get that facility. No Wi-Fi at all. Really inconvenient place for travelers. So disappointed.

Very friendly owner and a nice clean guest house that was good value. The whole area is sadly a bit soulless with it being an area of hotels and guest houses but it's not very interesting to walk around. The hotel next door will hire bikes for 300 rupees (£1.50) which is worth it for seeing the ancient city. It's... More
