This is a boutique hotel and limited on space. Food menu as compared to Park is also not that great. On creature... More

We wanted a place close to US consulate. I am so glad we found this. The room is big and very comfortable. Staffs are cordial and efficient. The surrounding was quiet. The free Wifi was a huge help to keep in touch with office work too. But the connection was a bit slow. Their thin crust pizza was awesome. I... More

Location is good enough and minutes away from US Consulate.Friendly and accomodating staffs who were discreet, nearly invisible , but always ready to assist and on hand.The hotel provides a relaxation ambience and the rooms are spacious. Prices are affordable and the value you get in terms of the amenities in the room and service is excellent. Will definitely recommend... More

I had a hideous night in my ugly, tasteless, decrepit room with its peeling wallpaper, smashed electrics and aging furniture. It's all "style" and definitely no substance. I had an early meeting and when I went to breakfast, found that the staff had not cleared the tables of revellers' debris from the previous evening. Breakfast was limp and unappetising with... More
