Good location. Booked thru makemytrip. Check in and checkout was a breeze (less then couple of minutes). Stayed for a single night. Rooms were neat. Courteous and helpful staff. Did not use any other facilities. No Complaints....Real value for money.

For someone looking to stay for business, this would be an ideal location. The reception did demand a full advance before our check-in, which we found... More

The main title more or less says the entire stuff. IRS just a budget hotel. It was clean that's the best part. The food is above average. Overall its a nice budget hotel with some construction and final touches being imperfect. The staff is OK. So worth as a budget hotel.

Nice average budget hotel. Location is not so good as its located near railway station. Quite far from heart of the city. Has good nice compact rooms. Variety in breakfast was also average, expectedly pure south indian cuisine. Good for frequent travellers!!
