The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and the porters were helpful and did not want a tip (great strategy, and it worked, they got a nice tip and I... More

A little but very nice, calm and cozy hotel in a nice location. It might have been more than luck but I was given room # 203 - like your own penthouse. Spent a half day on the huge balcony. Very helpful and nice staff. I will definitely come back to this hotel.

After having lived in India for more than three years I have got used to variable standards. This hotel however is the worst! I booked it from a nice hotel in Bengaluru. When I noticed the price I expected it to be nice. It was horrible! Toilet didn't work. Shower splashes water all over the bathroom. The "buffet" for breakfast... More
