We were looking for a budget hotel in a good locality. We didn't find the rooms up to expectation. They were quite basic. Leaking bathrooms, cupboard had broken doors, dropping water from A/C. Only highs for the hotel were the restaurant and location.

Room is neat and clean, however the room was full of water. Even after mentioning the same to reception, it took 2 days to finally clean the room off water. The food is quite oily. However other amenities are fine
